SHAH ALAM, MAR 23: Selangor is consistently leading the awareness campaign on care and welfare of stray animals throughout the state by launching the Stray Free Selangor (SFS) Campaign.
The campaign which is in cooperation with the Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), SPCA Selangor, focuses on humanitarian vision and targets to get the public more involved and aware on the issues of stray animals.
The campaign is fully supported by Her Royal Highness Tengku Permaisuri Selangor, Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin as its Royal Patron.
Tengku Permaisuri in her speech expressed her support for the public to be more sensitive on the educational issues to address the amount of stray animal issues in Selangor.
“Let us support this aspiration to make Selangor free from stray animals.
“Hopefully this campaign will be the best driving force and platform in making our state free from stray animals,” said Tengku Permaisuri.
Earlier today, Tengku Permaisuri accompanied His Royal Highness Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Alhaj Ibni Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Alhaj to the launch of the Stray Free Selangor Campaign in Shah Alam Convention Centre (SACC).
Also present were Raja Muda Selangor, Tengku Amir Shah; Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali and wife, Datin Seri Shamsidar Taharin.
Several State Government agencies like Menteri Besar Selangor Incorporated (MBI) and Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) had also contributed a sum of RM170,000 to the organisation.
Earlier, SFS focused on aspects of social education, animal castration and encouraging the State Government to find the best method to control the population of stray animals in Selangor.
Among the social programmes that are actively undertaken include organising courtesy education that offers ‘Responsible Pet Ownership’ workshop, Catcare programme in schools, universities and local communities.
