THE Ipoh Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA) is holding an emergency open day today, from 10am onwards, to raise food for the animals at its Jalan Gopeng shelter.
ISPCA president Ricky Soong said food supply for the animals, would run out within seven days.
“Donors could not send food supply to us because there were some difficulties reaching our shelter,” he said.
It was reported that a path behind a columbarium that leads to the shelter was blocked off twice since earlier this month.
Visitors and volunteers could not access ISPCA as they needed to enter through the columbarium’s gate.
“We have tried to create another path behind the columbarium to the shelter but certain parties have blocked it using tree trunks,” he said, adding that there were about 100 animals at the shelter.
Soong said they would try to clear the path again so that people could come visit the shelter and feed the animals there.
“We hope animal lovers and citizens can fully support us and help the animals at our shelter.
“We have requested volunteers to help bathe the animals at the shelter and welcome anyone wanting to adopt them,” he said.
“The public can also buy medicine and food from pet stores and donate them to us by writing their names, contact information and comments so our staff can record it,” he added.
“Donors or Good Samaritans who want to know more about ISPCA Food Bank can approach its agents and pet shops,” Soong said.
They are Hup Fatt Pets, Pretty Pets Sdn Bhd, ABC Pets Sdn Bhd, TLC Pet Store and Pet at Home.
