Yes, SPCA Selangor issued this statement in their weekly e-mail newsletter, which came out today (4 Feb):

SPCA Selangor thanks members of the public for the hundreds of e-mails and phone calls sharing information and possible leads on the two suspects in the poodle abuse case that surfaced on Facebook almost 2 weeks ago. SPCA has compiled all the information and tried to verify as much of the leads as possible, and passed the information to the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) for their immediate investigation. According to the Police Department, they are already liaising with the DVS to track down the suspects.

Unfortunately, SPCA Selangor (as well as other SPCAs in Malaysia) have never had the authority to arrest, confiscate, or prosecute cases of animal cruelty - but we can keep lobbying the government authorities and try to keep up the media exposure and public awareness. We are doing our best to be vigilant for new information available online, try to verify it and put the pieces together, and follow up with the DVS on this. We are trying to find out if the DVS has made any progress with this case, and we will update our Facebook page and website as soon as any new information is available.
