Spaying Neighbourhood Dog - Updates
Direct link to the video HERE
Finally we got her back, she is now spayed and back to the alley, I just wish she will be kept indoor and have a loving home. I have spoken to the lady and asked her to keep an eye on her for the time being and it would be great if she can just keep her indoor for a while. I will try to monitor her situation while she is outside at the alley from time to time.
By the way, the photos above are photos of license for dog (for Penang Island). It is still valid until next year. Since she will be always roaming outside, so it is best to spay and get her a license to prevent unfortunate tragedy from happening such as being captured or shot by the Municipal Council of Penang Island. You really do not want to know how the strays were being treated once they were captured. By the way MPPP stands for Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang ( Municipal Council Penang Island)
Applying for the license is pretty easy, you just have to go to the office on the ground floor and get a green form as shown above and fill in all the details. The form has both side printed, English and Bahasa Malaysia, just choose which language your are comfortable with. It cost 10 Ringgit for a license and you will get it on the spot. The license will be valid for a year and usually it will be available at the beginning of the year. So all of you Malaysian animal lovers, if you ever bump into strays that roaming around your area, what you can do is by sharing the spaying fees with your neighbour and give the stray a chance to live. They are just homeless and unfortunate creatures that probably looking for food and a warm place to stay and most of the time they are scare and wanted to avoid human. If you don't know how to treat or rescue a stray, please seek advise from your local animals shelter.
Here are the LINKS to various animal organizations in Malaysia.
