New Education, Rehabilitation & Adoption (E.R.A.) Centre under construction

2013 has seen the closing of a chapter in the evolution of SPCA Selangor, with 50 years of history disappearing under the bulldozers as the old shelter is demolished and the platform laid, for the new SPCA Selangor ERA (Education, Rehabilitation & Adoption) Centre. The building contractors moved in on 1st November with the official ground breaking ceremony on 11th November 2013. Thanks to the remarkable efforts made by all of you - members, supporters, volunteers, staff, friends and friends of friends of SPCA Selangor - we found homes for nearly 300 dogs and cats in the last few months before construction began.

Adoption

Adoption Procedure
  1. Visit the SPCA E.R.A Centre in Ampang Jaya and see the variety of animals available.
  2. You will be briefly interviewed by the SPCA staff to find out more about your experience with animals, residence & housing arrangements for the animal.
  3. Choose a pet suitable for your family, lifestyle and living environment.
  4. Enquire about the adoption fee and conditions for adopting the animal
  5. Fill in the adoption form at the Front Desk, make the donation and take your pet home.
  6. For puppy and dog adopters, following the adoption an SPCA Animal Inspector will pay a friendly visit to your residence in the next few weeks to see how your new pet is settling in.

Note:
  1. No animal can be reserved over the telephone or via email.
  2. SPCA Selangor reserves the right not to approve an adoption.
  3. SPCA Selangor may need to check the premises of the potential adopter before giving approval.
  4. Adoption of an SPCA animal cannot be processed for anyone who is below the age of 18, or students who are not residing with their parents.

Adoption Fees
  1. Adoption fees range from RM70 above for cats, and RM150 above for dogs.
  2. The adoption fee is inclusive of one vaccination, one de-worming and the neutering operation.
  3. It is SPCAís policy to neuter all the animals that pass through our doors to help curb the overpopulation problem. If your animal is under the age of 6 months, you will be briefed on when to bring him or her back for the operation.


Rehabilitation

We commenced a managed adoption programme for all dogs and cats that saw stunning results. With this consistent and monitored education programme, animals previously considered unadoptable were able to find homes. The program took many man hours, and it is thanks to the hard work of volunteers who supported each dog and cat on a regular basis that we were able to achieve this.


Dog training program We also gave Volunteers of all ages a chance to develop skills and understanding that not only gave rescue dogs and cats a better chance of assimilating into new homes but also made them more confident animal rescuers, fosterers and animal welfare ambassadors. Many volunteers also commented that the training has done their own pets good, as they now know how to train them and make them physically and mentally fulfilled.


Education Initiatives for 2014


VIPíS. Vets in Participation. SPCA will be working with selected vets who support spay and neuter programmes and provide special consideration for helping communities with stray animal care and control.


PIPís. Pet shops in Participation. As part of our big campaign to stop barbaric backyard, puppy mill breeding, we will be promoting and working with pet shops who will only sell animals that are bred in humane and healthy environments.


Education Campaigns Adopt, Donít Buy A national education campaign focusing on the importance and benefits of adopting rescued animals, instead of purchasing pets from pet shops.


Pet Carer Programme (PCP) This course is for anyone looking to learn more about pet care. Courses will be tailored for both adults and juniors - from the experienced pet owner, to the person who has never touched an animal, this programme will build confidence, understanding and practical application. More information on PCP here>>


Volunteer Programmes We will be implementing a volunteer recognition programme with categories Bronze, Silver and Gold.


Managed Adoption Programme (MAP) A programme for anyone over the age of 13 years, participants can assist us with events, fundraising initiatives and administrative tasks - eventually becoming a senior volunteer and helping others along their journey.
