Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Sandakan

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Sandakan is a non-profit animal welfare organization registered on 27th July 2012. SPCA Sandakan is the youngest animal welfare organization in Malaysia, initiated by members who have the compassion and love for animals.

Our organization came into being from the many rescues of abused and abandoned pets in Sandakan. Our volunteers have kindly donated their time and energy, money to buy food for the animals, building shelters, fostering and adopting recused animals and veterinary care.

Every year, hundreds of animals have no homes to return to and many are left to die on the streets. SPCA Sandakan needs your help to provide humane care for the abandoned animals, to provide them a home and the love they deserve. In return, animals will return your kindness with unconditional love and dedication.
