More than 50 dogs and cats need to be adopted

More than 50 dogs and cats need to be adopted today The Star, 19 July 2006 KUALA LUMPUR: More than 50 dogs and cats at the Subang Jaya Municipal Council’s (MPSJ) animal pound in Puchong will be put down if they are not adopted by today. Independent Pet Rescuers Malaysia is appealing to the public to adopt the animals and save them. The adoption drive will be held today, from 9am to 4.15pm, at No 1, Jalan Utama, Taman Perindustrian Puchong Perdana (next to the Mariamman Hindu temple). The animals were to have been put down on July 16 but Subang Jaya state assemblyman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng, who is also MPSJ councilor, had helped extended the deadline to give the rescuers more time to save the animals. “I received a call from a Malay man who wished to remain anonymous, who said that Islam did not condone putting down animals, be they cats or dogs, and it was heartbreaking to see these animals being put to sleep,” said Lee. Independent Pet Rescuers Malaysia volunteer Sherrina Krishnan said their main aim was to find good homes for the animals. Sherrina, 36, said people abandoning animals or not having them neutered …

Pet Memorial Services

Giving your pet a proper send-off Eileen Ng NST, 9 July 2006 KUALA LUMPUR: As 17-year-old Beano was loaded into the incinerator in Cheras, sisters Cheah Hsiao Theng and Hsiao Ling felt a sense of relief. Relief that their companion was no longer suffering and that she was in a better place.. Beano, a Spitz and bull-terrier cross, was stricken with mammary gland cancer for a year and during the last few days of her life, had refused to eat, couldn’t stand and had sores on her abdomen. “We were sad that she was gone but at least now she is not suffering anymore,” said Hsiao Teng. Beano was cremated last Wednesday and her ashes, which were placed in an urn, now have pride of place at the Cheah residence, together with some fresh flowers and pictures of the gregarious dog. The Cheah sisters are among a growing number of pet owners who choose cremation for their pets rather than burying them. There are at least two companies in Malaysia offering pet cremation services for dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, hamsters, fish, tortoises and other animals. The cost ranges from RM348 to RM1,233. The service comes with a cardboard box or …

‘It was the most humane option’

‘It was the most humane option’ Malay Mail, 15 Nov 2005 KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 15 On Nov 11, The Malay Mail front-paged a report that the SPCA put to sleep a cat and four kittens belonging to 12-year-old Anis Aliff Lam and her sister Adlinor, four days after the siblings sent them to the shelter. The girls’ father, Aliff Lam Abdullah, claimed he was never informed by the officer-in-charge about the time frame for the cats to be put to sleep if no one adopted them. However, an SPCA spokesman insisted that they had clearly laid down the terms and conditions contained in the surrender form to him. SPCA animal inspector Sabrina Yeap told The Malay Mail that euthanasia was the most humane option. “The animals do not feel any pain. They are merely given a specific dose of anesthetic and drift off to a painless sleep. “If there was any other option, we would definitely have pursued it. But as of now, we have no choice as there is a severe lack of resources and space,” she said As a large number of animals are sent to its premises, the SPCA puts 800 to 1,000 animals to sleep each …
