Who are we

RSPCA was founded in Penang in 1948. It is the oldest animal welfare organization in the country. In 1980, RSPCA became SPCA PENANG as its status changed from a branch of RSPCA(UK) to that of an affiliate.

SPCA is a tax exempted charitable organisation. It is run by an elected committee with a mandate for 1 year, renewable at its yearly annual general meetings. It is the only animal welfare Non Governmental Organisation in the State. It runs almost entirely on public donations (tax exempt).

The SPCA Penang plays an important role in the prevention of cruelty and in promoting kindness to animals.
The premise is used as the administrative centre, an animal pound and a veterinary clinic. It runs three vehicles which doubles up as an animal ambulance as well as collecting stray animals which are diseased, injured and in distress. Reports of cruelty cases are investigated by the SPCA’s inspectors who can only advise pet owners on humane treatment of their pets.

Our objective

1. Annually, approx. 10,000 strays comprising dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are picked up by the society’s Inspectorate staff and/or brought in by members of the public. Our 3 ambulances makes regular rounds to collect sick and injured strays covering all markets in the state of Penang daily. The society also covers public eating places as well as from homes especially the housing estates(provided the animal is confined) and whenever called upon by the public. Strays are the responsibility of the 2 local councils in the state of Penang.
2. The SPCA in Penang provides 24 hour ambulance service for sick , diseased and injured animals which are rescued either for humane destruction or convey to veterinarians for treatment. After office hours, only real emergencies will be attended to.
3. It collects unwanted animals by request
4. maintains a pound with 30 kennels and a large cattery as a temporary shelter for unwanted animals and adoptable strays (vaccinated and neutered ). The intake of animals far exceeds the numbers that can be rehomed.
5. Follow up of adoptees i.e spot checks on animals adopted.
6. Provides an animal ambulance service for pet owners who wish to convey their pets to vet clinics.
7. Provides veterinary services twice a week for treatment of animals in the kennels as well as out-patient treatment to the public.
8.Responds to public complaints of cruelty to animals.
