Our Animal Inspector responds to reports from concerned members of the public of mistreated or neglected animals in and around the Klang Valley. From January to December 2017, we had received and checked on more than 584 reports – the increasing number and the nature of the
complaints received reflect increasing public awareness and concern for animal welfare. SPCA investigates the complaint, and will advice the owner on proper pet care. We will follow up on the case in the following weeks, and failure to improve the standard of living for the animal will result in the case being forwarded to the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) for their attention and action. In severe or emergency situations, the DVS is notified immediately and a joint-rescue is initiated.
With the rise of the popularity of social media, sighting of cruelty cases is becoming easier. Along with the increased public awareness of animal welfare in general, our society is more vigilant when it comes to animal rescues as well. We’d like to advise the public to stay safe, and be responsible when it comes to rescuing injured animals.
The Inspectorate also handle a variety of other tasks – they carry out emergency rescue operations for animals involved in accidents, stranded on rooftops/drains and also in various other states of distress. The officers also actively investigate and follow up on complaints of mistreatment or neglect of animals kept in zoos, horse riding facilities, farms and other recreational facilities. They also represent SPCA Selangor at meetings with local councils and the DVS on humane stray/pound management.
