The ISPCA, was founded in 1985. It is a non-profit community-based organization whose primary roles are those of protecting and caring for animals.
The Ipoh Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (The ISPCA) is a non-profit and non-governmental organization formed under the Societies Act, 1966 Malaysia. We are affiliated to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), London.
Currently (2018), we are guardian to approximately 120 dogs and 10 cats at our shelter. Our shelter depends completely on the generosity of the public for its monthly survival. All donations contributed to ISPCA are tax-exempted for Malaysian Residents.
Our shelter upholds the ‘NO KILL‘ Policy and we are constantly working towards the realization of our following vision:
TNR-(M) Program is known to be one of the most effective and most humane ways of tackling issue regarding overpopulation of stray dogs and cats in our society. The management of strays under this TNRM program in categorized in four steps
Firstly, the stray animals will be trapped and sent to veterinary clinic for registration.
Next, these animals will undergo vaccination & spaying operation. Veterinary surgeon will also make a small marking on their ears and a microchip containing the registration info will be inserted to the animals.
Lastly, these animals will be given a specific red collar tag. They will be either returned to their original location or rehome.
Once dog populations are sterilized, existing feeders can then provide regular food via responsible feeding methods so the dog can live out the rest of its life. Managing a dog population also involves vaccinating the dogs to ensure that they are protected against certain diseases providing medical aid to injured, sick or abandoned dogs, and dealing with stray-related complaints in the area wherever engagement is possible.
In the second process of TNRM, we have a list of our supporting veterinary clinic for animal vaccination & spaying operation and insertion of the microchip implant.
