New Eco SPCA Selangor Coming Up

  With infrastructure and buildings over 50 years old, SPCA is sorely in need of an upgrade and redevelopment in order to perform their services to the animals and community more effectively. SPCA Selangor is extremely grateful that the Selangor State Government has recognized their contribution to animal welfare and granted them the title to the current premises that sit on 2 acres.
With approval to build imminent, SPCA Selangor will finally be rebuilt, with lush and magnificent trees that will be kept as an integral part of the new ECO SPCA. The new premises while enhance the living standards of their animals, incorporate Adoption and Surrender Counseling rooms, a big and modern Humane Education Resource room, proper quarantine areas, serene post-operation rooms amongst others. They hope that potential adopters will be attracted by an iconic, elegant and design conscious Shelter where animals play happily while waiting for homes.   

 The brand new facility comes with a fresh, new and sustainable strategic direction that will eliminate euthanasia as a means of population control, eliminate sound and odor pollution to respect residents living nearby, enable better socialization of animals, proper surrender and adoption counseling rooms while veering away from constantly being the dumping ground for irresponsible owners, good Samaritans excepted.

 While they embark on selective intake of animals to their capacity of 100 dogs and 150 cats, they will instead offer solutions, expanding their reach of MissionHELP, their 6th Pillar that helps people help animals. MissionHELP will allocate more assistance to Animal carers and fosterers, animal rescuers and sanctuaries via food, normal medical services, free or low-cost spay/neuter. They encourage good Samaritans who find injured or abandoned animals to foster them while SPCA provides medical treatment and food, in the event that SPCA is at full capacity.
SPCA thanks their architects Hijjas Kasturi & Associates, engineers TP Ng Perunding, landscape designer Inchscape and numerous donors and sponsors of their kennels and new buildings. The redevelopment will start in August 2013 and is expected to take 1 and a half years. During this time their capacity of animals intake will be reduced and they will embark on an adoption campaign to rehome as many animals as possible.

SPCA 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 priority 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.
