Stray Free Selangor!
If you have been following my blog, you will notice that I always try to feed stray animals. It saddens me very deeply to see starving dogs/cats wandering on the streets, suffering from hunger and vulnerable to abuse and harm.
Recently, the Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah and the Tengku Permaisuri of Selangor Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin have launched the Stray Free Selangor campaign. I’m so glad to hear this for a number of reasons. Firstly, fewer strays on the streets means fewer hungry, starving animals. It also means that less animals will be killed through the catch and kill campaigns that were previously conducted. Furthermore, with public education on humane and compassionate methods of dealing with strays, it is my hope that their suffering will be lessened and that the number of animal abuse cases will further reduce.
The stray animals of Malaysia need progressive campaigns such as this one very much and the Sultan of Selangor has set a great example by supporting and launching the campaign. It’s wonderful to know that our society is moving in this direction and I hope that many other states will adopt similar campaigns in the near future.
Treat Stray Animals Compassionately – Selangor Sultan, Tengku Permaisuri Launch Campaign
March 24, 2017 09:32 MYT
SHAH ALAM: The Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah and the Tengku Permaisuri of Selangor Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin on Thursday launched the ‘Stray Free Selangor (SFS) – The Humane and Compassionate Way’ campaign.
Joining them in launching the campaign was the Raja Muda of Selangor Tengku Amir Shah. Also present was Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.
Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin is the royal patron of the campaign, which is organised by the Selangor Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
The SFS campaign focuses on educating the public on humane and compassionate ways of treating stray animals, as well as to encourage all quarters to work together to spay or neuter stray animals and provide shelter for them.
Selangor SPCA patron Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said the campaign, the first to be organised by a non-governmental organisation in the country, aimed to control the stray population.
“I have discussed with the Menteri Besar and he agreed to arrange a meeting with all local government authorities in Selangor to provide explanation on this programme and the importance of complying with the Animal Welfare Act 2015,” he told reporters here yesterday.
Meanwhile, Selangor SPCA chairman Christine Chin said the campaign was organised to work towards a radical change for the creation of a society that loves stray animals.
The campaign seeks to replace the ineffective, inhumane, unethical and expensive catch and kill approach of dealing with stray animals, she added. — Bernama
