(Kota Kinabalu, 19th) The community that cares for stray animals in the city today called on the Kota Kinabalu City Hall to “netize” the stray animals that have been TNR (trapped, neutered and released) in the city, so that they can have a shelter. Place.
It is understood that a few days ago, stray dogs that had undergone TNR in the city were “accommodated” by the city hall and sent to the animal shelter of the city hall. This matter has aroused the concern of those who love stray animals.
It is reported that the stray dog has been active in the urban area for a long time. In the past, it was fed by enthusiastic people and had a good temperament. As a result, some people were puzzled by the behavior of the city hall this time.
Enthusiastic people pay a fine to redeem a dog
The stray dog was kept in the stray animal shelter of the City Hall for several days. Fortunately, some enthusiasts voluntarily paid a fine of RM100 to redeem the stray dog.
Caring for stray animals recently stated to Sin Chew Daily that the City Hall had a “tacit understanding” with NGOs before and would be more tolerant of stray animals that have undergone TNR and would not arrest them.
They pointed out that stray animals are not a choice for them to “be strayed”. Some are turned into strays because they were abandoned by their original owners. Enthusiasts can only cooperate with the city hall policy and conduct TNR for them at their own expense.
“We have not questioned the power of the city hall, but hope that the city hall can understand and open up a side to stray animals, especially the wave network that has undergone TNR.
They also hope that the city hall can hold more awareness-raising activities with other organizations or non-governmental organizations to increase the public’s sense of responsibility for pets.
They pointed out that they can only do their abilities and efforts to carry out TNR for stray animals and feed them, but they cannot cover all stray animals.
They believe that if the city hall can raise people’s awareness of caring for pets, they believe that the number of abandoned pets will be greatly reduced, thereby reducing the existence of stray animals from the root cause.
