Three animal shelters in Klang by next year — MPK

By Siti Rohaizah Zainal

KLANG, Aug 17 — The Klang Municipal Council (MPK) will open three shelters for abandoned animals by the end of 2023, said its deputy president Elya Marini Darmin.

She said one of the shelters will be located at Jalan Sungai Pinang in Pulau Indah, and two in Taman Perindustrian Kapar Bestari.

“The 1.6 to 3.2-hectare shelters are expected to start operating by the end of next year and will protect stray cats, cows and dogs.

“Opening these shelters is part of MPK’s urban move, as well as reducing the number of abandoned animals throughout the Klang area,” she said earlier today.

Elya Marini was speaking at the Klang Royal City Heritage Trail programme, held at Dewan Hamzah MPK and attended by 50 participants, which was also officiated by state executive councillor for culture and heritage Borhan Aman Shah.

She added the shelters are situated far from residential areas, so as not to disturb the surrounding residents.

“So far, discussions are ongoing and NGOs which specialise in handling abandoned animals are welcome to participate,” Elya Marini said.
