Volunteering at SPCA
As part of PPB's CSR activities, 22 PPB staff and their family members volunteered at SPCA Selangor on 22 June 2013. SPCA Selangor is an animal shelter and adoption centre based in Ampang Jaya, Selangor. It presently has more than 200 dogs and cats under its care, and carries out many animal welfare and community educational activities.
After a short briefing, the volunteers helped to clean the catteries and kennels, scrub the floors, wash the cooking and feeding utensils, and bathe the dogs. Besides their tasks, they also took time out to interact and play with the animals. After lunch, several volunteers helped out with some additional duties before the session ended with an SPCA video presentation. The strong message in the video was that we should care for animals, adopt instead of buy pets and be responsible pet owners.
PPB also donated pet food items as well as medication to the society. Those who are interested to adopt a cat or dog, or wish to report animal cruelty or abuse can contact the SPCA at 03-4256 5312 or 03-4253 5179.
