The pandemic has affected people from all walks of life.
And with no end in sight, it has also taken its toll on non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that rely on public support to help those in need, including our animal friends.
One of these NGOs is Persatuan Pencinta Haiwan Jalanan Kampar.
The animal welfare organization has been taking care of our animal friends since 2019 and they have neutered or neutered 207 dogs and 86 cats to date.
However, due to the pandemic, the NGO must now ration the number of dogs to be spayed or neutered due to funding issues.
The president of the association, Yvonne Hoh, said Malaysian courier that the NGO was receiving funds from Kampar MP Thomas Su, but after the fall of Pakatan Harapan’s government, aid declined.
To be precise, the funds received from the MP have gone from 30,000 RM to only 5,000 RM this year, which has led the association to ration the number of dogs that can be spayed or neutered.
Hoh said that currently, the association has cut spending between RM1,000 and RM2,000 per month for the procedure, which means it can only sterilize up to 10 dogs per month.
“Sometimes when we get more dogs we have to postpone her operation until the next month,” she said.
This is why the association is launching an appeal to the public to help them continue their activities.
