Default Re: Spca ampang in need of more adopters...

And Ezer, memang it is an uphill battle ... animal welfare has never been easy ... and HK SPCA and the other modern SPCAs that have fought the uphill battle and won mentioned specifically that they got very little cooperation from their government side ... but they did tons of adult awareness education program to persuade and change the mindset that we need to allow the animals to live alongside us in the community as managed colonies of strays, to accept that it is the right of the animal to live amongst us in the community ... and that culling of healthy animals is cruel and inhumane.

You know, even feeding the strays (giving them the very basic needs of a living creature) is met with hostility from majority of the public? Good precious cat food and bowls placed discreetly and cleaned every day get thrown away ... denying the cat its basic right to life ... try denying a 2-legged his food and water!

Intense ADULT (not kids!) awareness education programmes is compulsory to prepare the groundwork of acceptance for TNR. Otherwise, all the TNRs will still be going down the drain in vain.
