Neutering subsidy to control abandoned animals

SHAH ALAM, MAY 24: Cat and dog owners now can get subsidy to neuter their pets through the Selangor Neutering Subsidy Programme.
Local Government, New Village Development and Illegal Factory Legalisation Exco, Ean Yong Hian Wah said the State Government allocates RM150,000 for the programme with the cooperation from PAWS Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).
He said this is part of the initiative to reduce stray animals especially in residential and commercial areas.
“The local authorities often receive complaints on nuisance caused stray animals which also affect cleanliness and safety.
“Therefore, neutering is one of the effective solution besides capturing them and we hope that people who are interested will contact PAWS for the service and further advice,” he said.
He said that in a media conference which was also joined by PAWS Manager, Edward Lim, in his office today.
Meanwhile, Edward said the cost to neuter a dog is RM100 while a cat is RM60.
He said the programme is open for all Selangor citizens with the identification card number xxxxxx-10-xxxx.
“The programme has been studied and discussed for two years before being launched today.
“We hope the State Government will continue to support such programme for everyone’s benefit,” he said.
