FAQs On Adopting From SSPCA


1. What does it mean by ADOPTING ?

Answer: It means that the dog or cat officially belongs to you (yay!) after you have registered with us. You are responsible to share your love and your home with your new pet. You can bring your new pet back home after registering with SSPCA. Our staff or team of friendly adoption counsellors will need to ask you a few questions to understand you a little to help ensure you and your new pet are compatible with each other. SSPCA has over 300 homeless animals looking for a home!

2. Do I have to PAY when I Adopt from SSPCA?

Answer: Yes. For puppies & kittens, the standard adoption fee is RM60- includes 1st vaccination & Neutering Operation Fee. For adult dogs & cats which have already been neutered/spayed, the standard adoption fee is RM30.

3. If I don't want to Neuter or vaccinate my pet, can I pay a lesser fee?

Answer: No, RM60 is SSPCA's standard adoption fee. A responsible owner should bring its pet for vaccinations and to be neutered and spayed to increase its quality of life. So, be one!

4. When do I need to bring my pet back for Neutering Operation?

Answer: When your puppy or kitten is5-6 months old. The recommended Neutering Date will be written on your Adoption Registration Form.

5. Do I need to pay again when I bring my puppy/kitten for Neutering and 1st Vaccination?

Answer: No, you don't. It is already included in your Adoption Fee you paid previously.

6. What breeds of dogs and cats are available for adoption?

Answer: Here in SSPCA, we do not like to differentiate animals by breed. Our shelter animals are rescued/dumped animals who are in need of a loving home. None of the dogs or cats here come with any certificate of any sort when they were rescued or dumped, thus, we can also only judge what type of dog or cat they are by their looks only, just like you do. We also believe that regardless of whatever breed they are, they will surely give you 100% of their love if you are willing to give them a home!

7. What do I need to bring when I want to adopt a new pet from SSPCA?

Answer: Your own self, your family and friends (because choosing a new member of a family means doing it together!) , your identification (e.g. IC or driving license) and money for the adoption fee (see Q2).

8. Where do I bring my puppy/kitten to do the Neutering & Vaccination?

Answer: You can do so at our SSPCA shelter or our panel veterinarian clinics (Call SSPCA for more info on this). You would need to make an appointment prior to bring your pet for Neutering or vaccination.

9. Where can I ADOPT?

Answer: At SSPCA Shelter or at our weekly Adoption Day events. Address of shelter can be found under our "About" Section or on Google Map. We will frequently update our Adoption Day locations on our timeline. It is usually at different shopping malls around Kuching i.e. Boulevard Shopping Mall, Plaza Merdeka, Eastern Mall etc.
