Responsible pet ownership or ‘RPO’ is one of the major changes that the SPCA would like to bring about in Malaysia. While the SPCA can provide neutering clinics, rehome animals and campaign for changes in the law, without Malaysian citizens taking more responsibility for the welfare of their pets little progress can be made.

Domestic animals rely on us for their wellbeing. Unlike wild animals, domesticated cats and dogs cannot successfully provide enough food, water and medical treatment for themselves to stay fit and healthy.

The key responsibilities an owner should show towards their pet are:
  • Provide adequate food, shelter, medicine and living space for your pet.
  • Spay or neuter your pet.
  • Use a leash when your pet dog is out of the compound.
  • Provide a loving environment for your pet.
  • Be considerate to your neighbours.
