The SPCA Penang, formerly known as RSPCA, was founded in 1948. It is a non-profit community-based organization whose primary roles are those of protecting and caring for animals.


Promote kindness, prevent cruelty and alleviate suffering of animals.

We believe that respect for life begins with concern for animals and the environment.


Care for and protect abandoned animals. We are not a ‘no kill shelter’. All animals will only be taken in when the public/pet owners comply to our policies/regulations.

Educate the community by actively promoting an ethical attitude in raising animals.

Encourage responsible pet ownership.


Established in 1948 (formerly known as RSPCA) and active until now.
The oldest animal welfare organization in the country.

Collection of Strays

We do not pick up healthy stray dogs, only those that are injured or sick or in genuine distress. The seizure of healthy stray dogs is a local council responsibility.

Strays will only be picked up if they are confined in an enclosure by the public.

SPCA Penang will only accept unwanted animals from pet owners and members of the public with the full knowledge and understanding that the animal may be put to sleep. The SPCA abhors the practise of euthanasia, but under certain circumstances and conditions, we are forced to perform it. The public should not surrender an animal if they are unable to accept that the animal may be euthanised. Unwanted animals should only be given up to the SPCA as a last resort after every effort possible has been made by the owner to find alternative homes for them. This will greatly help reduce the burden on the SPCA. The SPCA is the only shelter that accepts all animals – be it strays, abandoned or unwanted by owners. This means nearly 200 animals are received each month. An average of only 10 animals are found homes for each month.
