Sarawak Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
The Sarawak SPCA's mission is to act as an advocate on behalf of animals and as an enforcer of their rights; to provide for the well-being of the animals of the State of Sarawak who are abandoned, injured, subjected to unfair or cruel treatment, or otherwise in need; to cultivate in the people of our community an awareness of the animals whose world we share; to promote a bond of mutual assistance between people and animals; and to instill respect for and appreciation of all living things.
The Sarawak Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals believes that animals, as living creatures, have value beyond economic measurement, and are entitled to legal, moral and ethical consideration and protection.
What they do:
They run joint neutering campaigns with the local councils in an effort to curb the expanding stray population;
They walk hundreds of visitors through our Shelter to educate them about the need to be more responsible citizens and pet owners;
They organize countless off-site adoption campaigns to increase the chances of our animals finding new homes;
They act on reports about animal abuse cases;
They manage an animal crematorium – the first in Malaysia – so that we can dispose of animal carcasses in a safe and hygienic manner;
They climb up trees and down drains to rescue trapped animals in the dead of night;
They brave the flood waters at midnight to take our shelter animals to safety; and
They pen millions of words in an effort to raise awareness about Animal Welfare and to fight for Animal Rights.
