Do Not Harass Animal Feeders

GEORGE TOWN: A local non-governmental organisation advocating for stray animals has appealed to the public not to harass or threaten the good-hearted community of animal feeders.

Save our Strays Neutering Society (SOS) founder April Sham said a 61-year-old feeder was harassed on Jan 16 while feeding homeless animals in Jalan Perak here.

“A food outlet operator scolded retiree Ang Geok Tin for feeding the animals on a pavement across his shop. He accused her of littering and tried to assault her but was stopped by a passer-by.

“He warned her to not feed the homeless dogs and kicked her bicycle down, spilling the dog food all over the road. Ang has since lodged a police report over the incident,” she said at a press conference yesterday.

Sham said animal feeders were compassionate and selfless people who helped to look after homeless animals living in the streets, adding that the community should appreciate their kind work.

“SOS is strongly against those who threaten violence on the feeders.

“Ang is just one of many feeders who have experienced this kind of incident,” she said, adding that after SOS shared the incident on its Facebook page, it went viral.

“We are also hoping the state will set up a mass neutering clinic with full-time veterinarians.

“SOS has its own neutering programme which depends on donations from the public,” she said.

Establishment of Save Our Strays (SOS)

Have you wondered what spurred the establishment of SOS?  Hear it firsthand from our founder:

Shanti’s unfortunate death was the push button to kick start SOS Alliance Group.  Shanti is the founder Of SOS and her partner Boy is the Legend of SOS.  Shanti was caught by Council before SOS established in Jul 2012.  Her partner, Ah Boy, to this date, is alone and comes to my gallery “Muda House” every day for food and nap.  We have put on a license for Boy today in hope that no one will steal his license this time. Last year, Shanti and her license was stolen few times.  We have since tightened up the license with extra cable ties onto his collar.

Everyone in the neighborhood loves Shanti and Boy.

They belong to the community and everyone sees them as friends.

Shanti was captured by council.

We miss her very much, especially Boy, who has lost his companion.

Boy and Shanti were inseparable.  Backpackers love them, the beggars at the Kuan Yin Temple love them, restaurant owners love them.  Everyone feels happy to see them as they are simply too gentle.

Shanti at times dropped by Muda House alone but she would never eat the food until she got Boy to share the food with her.

Every morning they would hover around Kuan Yin Temple. They love music. In the evenings they would hang out at Soho Pub in Penang Road or Raggae Pub in Chulia Street and Love Lane. The patrons love them and they were always welcome there.

They regularly patronized Muda House for food and take nap.

But now Shanti is gone.

I can’t believe how some uncaring people could call council to tear this loving couple apart.

Boy was lucky to escape as his collar was loose but poor Shanti had a tighter collar on. Now Boy is all by himself for the rest of his life.

Shanti is a hero.  She survived a severe fever attack and distemper virus but not the heartless Council.

Council is supposed to support the community and improve resident lives. They now have innocent blood on their hands and are responsible for such cruelty.  Someone should be held accountable for this shameful action.

According to the witness, Buddy barked at the man when he peed in the car park. So the man retaliated by ferociously stoning Buddy.
