Have you seen the open wounds of a dog while at the road side or kopitiam?
Or how about the bag of bones whimpering for a scrap of food?
How many times have you looked at a stray and longed to give them a better life?
How many time have you frowned upon senseless people abusing these creatures who are trying their best to survive on the streets and not die of cold or starvation before the diseases take over.
Don't you wish you could take them all back home and give them the chance to run for fun
and not away from boiling water thrown on them.
Maybe some of you have brought them to the local animal shelter.
Good for you.
But have you thought of will they ever find a home?
How long will they be there before the shelter gets over crowded and the cute little perfectly healthy bundles of joy gets put to sleep.
Yes, when it's over crowded and the shelters can't cope they get killed.
Everyday is genocide.
Not that they want too, these shelters are under staffed, over worked and under funded.
They have no choice.
But you do.
In Malaysia, animals have little to no rights. Offenders get off the hook from torturing animals with little more than a slap on the wrist.
Did you know that torturing animals is a precursor to torturing humans? It's just a few rungs away from being homicidal.
Don't worry, I'm not putting you on a guilt trip to open your doors to the pitter patter of furry paws.
Some of you are responsible enough to know that you are not ready to give these selfless beings all that you can, and I respect you for knowing that.
All I'm asking is for you to sign.
SPCA, Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye and some of the participating NGOs will be meeting the Ministry of
Housing on 20th June to discuss humane stray control management. So please don't let this die down,
Show them that we humans care for the animals in Malaysia. That we are capable of feeling empathy for these creatures.
Ghandi once said,
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress
can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
What do we have left if we can't even protect those whom are defenseless and voiceless.
Do your part
The response has been heart felt but we still need many more.
PLEASE help us get more signatures and KEEP THE PRESSURE going!
Pass this petition link to your friends locally and internationally. We need more voices to speak for those who can't.
This is Kitten, the sister of my recently departed Bob.
This is Bob.
He's dead now, but he has left us with many happy memories to cherish
The 2 of them and their mother was rescued more then a decade ago.
My family is blessed to have had their purrs and claw marks in our lives.
To those who signed and passed it along, this kitteh thanks you *less than three*
P/S: Are you a kitteh or a doggie person?
