*UPDATE - MARCH 2012*
It is proving very difficult to get the approval from local authorities to rebuild the shelter, as there are concerns from many parties especially the neighbouring residents. Because of certain developing requirements from the authorities over the span of 2 years, we have had to go back and forth with architects to modify functions, layout and design. We hope that donors who have donated in goodwill will trust that we are taking the necessary steps to get the approval soon, no one would like to see the new shelter built more than us! Any concrete approvals will be posted on our website and online media when the time comes. We thank you for your donations and your patience!
The capital fundraising campaign for the new eco-SPCA Selangor was launched at our Charity Gala on January 10th, 2010. Having just received the title for the 2-acre lot after years of negotiation with the State government, the real work is just starting now! From start to finish, we hope to complete this project within 2 years.
We are very fortunate to have the famous architect and long-time friend of the animals Hijjas Kasturi design our new premises on a pro-bono basis. SPCA Selangor Chairman Christine Chin and committee member Chan Mo Lin are driving this project, with the support of the committee members, staff, donors and members of the public.
We are focused on building a new iconic SPCA, incorporating the green values of 3Rs - Reuse, Recycle and Reduce - combined with sustainability, style and thoughtful presentation of key areas. The well-being of the animals will take primacy over all other considerations, of course! Preservation of the huge trees is paramount, as is the provision of spacious enclosures for each animal to live comfortably.
