Good News! The Return Of Our Vaccination Aid!

 


Good news for all feeders and rescuers of street animals in Malaysia!

We are restarting our Vaccination Aid on 1st March 2019! We had this before, but had to close it in December 2014 due to the overwhelming number of neutering claims.

It’s back now!

For details, please refer to the policy page: www.myanimalcare.org/vacc/.

Applicants are eligible to claim a maximum of RM25 each for the 1st and 2nd vaccinations of their animals, up to 3 animals per week, subject to fund availability.

This is only for the first two vaccinations for the animal and they must be done in a time interval not exceeding 30 days from each other.

As before, a collage containing the photo of the animal and the vaccination card is required:





We have also spoken to a few of our regular applicants and learnt that their vets provide a package which includes neutering and one vaccination for rescued street animals. Usually, according to the applicants, it is not easy to catch the animal again for the 2nd vaccination after they have been released, so in such cases, the applicant may claim for just one single vaccination.

In the event that a 2nd vaccination can be done, another claim can be made again, provided this booster is done within a period not exceeding 30 days from the 1st dose. A booster will ensure better protection, so it is highly encouraged. But we do understand that it isn’t always possible to catch the animal again once he/she has been released.

The form for the claim is here: AnimalCare Form VACCINATION March 2019

The vaccination aid would be in line with CNRM as caring includes protecting our animals from transmittable diseases too. We’ve also spoken to a few Malaysian vets over the past few months before we made the decision to reintroduce this vaccination aid.

The vets opine that vaccination is still VERY necessary and important for our street animals as diseases are still endemic in many areas in our country. According to them, we cannot compare our situation with that of many advanced countries which have managed to control the spread of diseases over decades through mass vaccination activities. One of the vets, in fact, said that he sees a few cases of distemper and parvo virus every week, many of which are fatal. This is really sad because these diseases can be kept at bay through vaccination.

Studies also show that mass vaccination can definitely decrease the spread of disease. This is good for everyone. For rabies too, statistics show that if 70% of the street dog population is vaccinated against it, the dreaded rabies can actually be eventually wiped out.

So, AnimalCare now provides a more complete “care package” for street animals – Neutering, Vaccination and Food (through our Double Charity Donation)!

Our fervent hope is to nurture One-Street CNRM-ers because we strongly believe that this task is doable. Just take care of the animals on your street – it could be, maybe, 5-10 animals. Get them vaccinated and neutered; rehome, if possible, if not, return to colony and continue looking after them until they live out their natural lives. This is the CNRM lifestyle where humans and street animals live in harmony with humans taking the compassionate lead to do what’s best for the animals. We hope it becomes a lifestyle; as more people do it, more will follow when they see how fulfilling and meaningful it can be.

The best gift is to help those who can never repay you. It is also the most rewarding, fulfilling and satisfying form of charity.

We welcome you to share your stories with us too. Write to us, send us photos and tell us about your experience with your animals. Your stories will help inspire others to step into your shoes.

Street animals need our help. Together, we can create a better environment for them to live in – peacefully, safely and happily.

Thank you.
