Description of Charity:
The aim of the SPCA is to protect defenseless animals and to alleviate their suffering. SPCA provides temporary shelter to unwanted animals in Selangor and the Federal Territory. These include mainly cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs … usually pets that are no longer desired by their owners. From here, we try to rehome as many as possible but with more than 1,100 animals arriving every month (reaching some 13,000 annually), the shelter is constantly challenged by a shortage of space and limited funds.
1. Adoption programme – Members of the public are encouraged to adopt animals from the SPCA. The adoption fee includes de-worming, vaccination and compulsory neutering (sterilization). All potential adopters are interviewed and advised, and should be agreeable to home visits by SPCA staff. The shelter is open to visitors everyday, 9am to 4pm.
2. Collection of animals – THE SPCA operates two ambulances which collect unwanted pets and confined strays, by appointment only. The SPCA does not have the manpower to chase/catch free-running strays. If transport is needed, please call SPCA at numbers given below during office hours to have arrangements made as soon as possible.
3. Stray animals in distress – Whilst the animal shelter will receive sick, injured or very young, orphaned animals round-the-clock, the SPCA ambulance can respond to distress calls only between 8am – 8pm. Pet owners with emergencies should consult their own veterinarians; the SPCA is able to advise on where their nearest available vet is located.
4. Inspection of cruelty complaints – SPCA inspectors investigate complaints relating to animal cruelty whenever possible. The identity of complainants is kept confidential; anonymous callers will not be entertained.
5. Educational talks – Upon request, talks are conducted either on SPCA premises or at schools, clubs and other organizations to discuss topics such as responsible ownership, animal care, strays, neutering etc.
Estimated Monthly Expenditure: RM50,000
Volunteers (9-3pm to socialise with the pets).

SPCA KL is located near the International School of Kuala Lumpur in Ampang. From KLCC,head down towards Jalan Ampang and take the left turn off just before Ampang Point Shopping Complex to Jalan Hulu Kelang. About 100 meters further, take a right turn at a traffic lights (with Mobil and Petronas stations nearby). Go along Jalan Kerja Ayer Lama and SPCA will be on your left.
Due to the distance, it is rather limited what SPCA Selangor can do. We advice that you contact the local government authority DVS (Jabatan Perkhidmatan Veterinar Johor) for further assistance.
