Dear Dr Chan,

Good day.

My name is Wan Choi May, from Rawang, one (1) homeless male dog came to my house one month ago searching for food. I feed the dog daily & now the dog has settled in a vacant house nearby my house.

I decided to bring the male dog to the clinic at Kuchai Lama for neutering on 10.11.18, and please be attached herewith photos before & after neutering for reference.

I would like to apply for neuter aid & really appreciate if my application is approved by the committee.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Wan Choi May

A note from the AnimalCare Exco (republishing)

This was published in July 2017 and we would like to republish it in view of our new policies in Dec 2018.

It is now almost 10 years that AnimalCare has existed and we are heartened to see that we have helped to build a large community of caregivers of street animals who do neutering work, which in turn has increased the public’s appreciation and acceptance of neutering.

Even so, we believe it is timely for AnimalCare Neutering Fund to tighten our policy and deploy our limited funds more efficiently to those who need it most, i.e. new caregivers who are starting out and who are constrained by the lack of funds, experience and support because they are working in isolation.

While we are by no means suggesting that experienced caregivers need less funds, we believe that they are in a stronger position to seek alternative sources of funding. Consequently, we would like to encourage them to move on so that we have a larger pool of funds to benefit caregivers with little or no experience.

To the experienced caregivers and especially those who have organised a small team of friends with specific duties, please do consider registering yourselves as a society so that you can raise your own funds to sustain your long-term rescue and neutering work. This would be so much better than depending on organisations to fund your work.

Indeed, it is our earnest hope that those whom we have helped will some day donate to AnimalCare to help the newcomers do neutering work. With more people involved in neutering work, the burden can be shared by many instead of being borne by just a few.

Finally, we would like to take the opportunity to stress that AnimalCare is a charity founded on life-affirming principles. As such, applicants who share our values will be given priority in the assessment and approval process.

To clarify, we do not endorse the putting down of sick or infant animals without giving the animals treatment or care, nor do we encourage rescuers who focus on just getting an animal neutered and released but then fail to follow up with the necessary medical treatment or care.

CNRM starts with “Care” and ends with “Manage”.

All creatures – be they young, weakly, sick or elderly – are precious and deserve to be cared for as best as possible, so our larger objective is to promote and grow a community that not only rescues and neuters street animals, but is committed to their long-term care and wellbeing.

Thank you for your interest and understanding in helping us achieve this.

Please take note:

Due to the scarcity of funds now:

(1) Effective 1st December 2018, the claim per week per applicant is restricted to a maximum of RM200.

(2) Effective immediately, there will also be a maximum total claim allowable for each applicant (from date of 1st claim). The applicant will be given one month’s notice before this maximum is reached after which we will not be able to help him/her anymore.

However, clause (2) is subject to fund availability so the applicant may write in from time to time to enquire if we have enough funds to help him/her again. Please do so with photos, statistics and sufficient justification of why he/she still needs to apply for our funds.

English version:

Those who follow this blog would be aware of the many challenges we have been facing, particularly pertaining to the shortage of funds, scarcity of donations, difficulties in fundraising and the increasing number of applicants, the last of which, is something to rejoice over.

We have made appeals, especially to our applicants (past and present, especially to those who have received thousands of RM from us), to please help us raise funds through various ways, including giving back RM10 a month to our Fund during these difficult times, but sadly, this attempt has not been successful.

As one person trying to raise sufficient funds to help all the applicants, this task is proving to be very daunting. Each month, we pay out, on the average, RM17,000 in claims. Donations received are all channeled back to the applicants.

AnimalCare started with the intention of helping small-time feeders in the neutering of their animals. It has always been stated clearly in our policies that we do not have the financial capability to help the big-timers and that it would be better for them to seek help from larger organisations or be independent and self-reliant.

Our neutering aid also extends to the whole of Malaysia and is not only confined to Selangor. Lately, we have been receiving an increasing number of new applicants from other states and this is all very, very encouraging.

In this spirit and with the challenges that we are facing now, the following policy changes will have to be made:

(1) Effective 1st December 2018, the claim per week per applicant is restricted to a maximum of RM200.

(2) Effective immediately, there will also be a maximum total claim allowable for each applicant (from date of 1st claim). The applicant will be given one month’s notice before this maximum is reached after which we will not be able to help him/her anymore.

However, clause (2) is subject to fund availability so the applicant may write in from time to time to enquire if we have enough funds to help him/her again. Please do so with photos, statistics and sufficient justification of why he/she still needs to apply for our funds.

As such, clause (2) is not cast in stone. We need it now due to scarcity of funds, but if our financial status improves, we might be able to re-open our funds to these old applicants again. For now, we have to prioritise helping the new applicants.

All said, we strongly advise everyone to treat AnimalCare as a starter fund and to please find ways to be independent and self-reliant.

Thank you for your kind understanding.

Versi Bahasa Malaysia:

Mereka yang mengikuti blog ini mungkin telahpun mengetahui tentang cabaran-cabaran yang kami hadapi, terutamanya berkaitan dengan kekurangan dana, kekurangan sumbangan, kesulitan dalam penjanaan dana serta bilangan pemohon yang kian hari semakin bertambah (namun ini sesuatu yang menggembirakan).

Kami telah membuat rayuan, terutamanya kepada para pemohon (yang lama dan yang kini, terutamanya kepada mereka yang telah menerima beribu-ribu ringgit daripada kami), untuk membantu kami mengumpul dana melalui pelbagai cara, termasuk memberi sumbangan ikhlas sebanyak RM10 sebulan kepada dana kami pada masa-masa sukar ini, tetapi malangnya, percubaan ini tidak berjaya.

Sebagai penjana tunggal untuk mendapatkan dana yang mencukupi untuk membantu semua pemohon, tugas ini terbukti sangat mencabar dan sulit. Setiap bulan, kami membayar tuntutan dalam lingkungan RM17,000. Sumbangan yang kami terima semua disalurkan kembali kepada pemohon.

AnimalCare bermula dengan niat untuk membantu penjaga haiwan jalanan berskala kecil dalam pemandulan haiwan-haiwan di bawah jagaan mereka. Polisis kami sentiasa menjelaskan bahawa kami tidak mempunyai keupayaan kewangan untuk membantu penjaga berskala besar dan adalah lebih baik bagi mereka mendapatkan bantuan dari organisasi yang lebih besar atau berdikari dan bergantung kepada diri sendiri.

Bantuan pemandulan kami juga meliputi seluruh Malaysia dan bukan hanya terhad kepada Selangor. Baru-baru ini, kami telah menerima peningkatan jumlah pemohon baru dari negeri-negeri lain dan ini amat menggalakkan.

Berdasarkan semangat ini dan dengan kesulitan yang kami hadapi sekarang, perubahan polisi berikut perlu dibuat:

(1) Berkuatkuasa 1 Disember 2018, tuntutan setiap minggu bagi setiap pemohon dihadkan kepada RM200 maksimum.

(2) Berkuatkuasa serta merta, jumlah maksimum tuntutan yang dibenarkan untuk setiap pemohon (dari tarikh tuntutan pertama) adalah terhad. Pemohon akan diberi notis satu bulan sebelum maksimum ini dicapai dan kami tidak akan dapat membantu pemohon tersebut lagi selepas itu.

Walau bagaimanapun, fasal (2) tertakluk kepada ketersediaan dana jadi pemohon boleh menulis kepada kami dari semasa ke semasa untuk bertanya jika kami mempunyai dana yang mencukupi untuk membantu beliau semula. Sila berbuat demikian dengan gambar, statistik dan justifikasi yang mencukupi mengapa beliau masih perlu memohon dana daripada kami.

Oleh itu, fasal (2) bukanlah sesuatu yang tetap. Kami terpaksa melaksanakannya sekarang oleh kerana kekurangan dana, tetapi jika status kewangan kami bertambah baik, kami mungkin dapat membuka semula dana kami kepada pemohon-pemohon lama ini. Buat masa ini, kami mesti memberi keutamaan untuk membantu pemohon-pemohon baru.

Akhir kata, kami berharap semua pemohon sedar bahawa AnimalCare adalah cuma satu dana permulaan sahaja. Sila berusaha untuk mencari cara-cara untuk berdikari.

Terima kasih atas kerjasama anda.

相信那些关注这个博客的人会意识到我们面临的许多挑战,特别是资金短缺,捐款稀缺,筹款困难以及申请人数量增加,最后一点是令人高兴的事情。

We have made appeals, especially to our applicants (past and present, especially to those who have received thousands of RM from us), to please help us raise funds through various ways, including giving back RM10 a month to our Fund during these difficult times, but sadly, this attempt has not been successful.
我们曾多次提出要求, 尤其是向我们的申请者,(过去和现在的,尤其是那些曾经接收过我们数千RM的申请者),请他们通过各种方式来帮助我们筹集资金,包括在这艰难时期每月可以回捐赠10令吉于我们AnimalCare的基金, 很遗憾的是,这种方法并不成功。我们得到的回应比不理想。

As one person trying to raise sufficient funds to help all the applicants, this task is proving to be very daunting. Each month, we pay out RM17,000 in claims. Donations received are all channelled back to the applicants.
单靠一个人的单独力量去筹集足够的资金来帮助所有申请人,是一件非常困难的任务,每个月,我们支付出高达17,000令吉的补助金。所有收到的捐款都返还给申请人为他们补助金的用途

AnimalCare started with the intention of helping small-time feeders in the neutering of their animals. It has always been stated clearly in our policies that we do not have the financial capability to help the big-timers and that it would be better for them to seek help from larger organisations or be independent and self-reliant.
Our neutering aid also extends to the whole of Malaysia and is not only confined to Selangor. Lately, we have been receiving an increasing number of new applicants from other states and this is all very,very encouraging.
AnimalCare最初的目的是帮助小型喂食者对他们的动物进行绝育。我们的政策中一直明确指出,我们没有足够的经济能力来帮助大型喂食者,他们最好向大型组织寻求帮助,或者独立自主。

我们的绝育援助也延伸到整个马来西亚,不仅仅局限于雪兰莪州。近来,我们收到了越来越多来自其他州的新申请人,这一切是非常非常令人鼓舞的。

In the spirit and with the challenges that we are facing now, the following policy changes will have to be made.

本着这份精神和我们现在面临的挑战,我们必须进行以下政策改革。

1) Effective 1st December 2018, the claim per week per applicant is restricted to a maximum of RM200.
(2) Effective immediately, there will also be a maximum total claim allowable for each applicant (from date of 1st claim). The applicant will be given one month’s notice before this maximum is reached after which we will not be able to help him/her anymore.

(1)从2018年12月1日起,每位申请人每周的补助金限额最高为RM200。

(2)此外每个申请者将有一个允许的最高补助金总额数目。
(从第1个补助申请的日期算起),立即生效 。在达到这最高限额之前,申请人将获得一个月的通知时间,之后我们将无法再帮助他/她。

However, clause (2) is subject to fund availability so the applicant may write in from time to time to enquire if we have enough funds to help him/her again. Please do so with photos, statistics and sufficient justification of why he/she still needs to apply for our funds.
但是,第(2)款的规定取决于资金的足够可用性,因此申请人可以时不时写信询问我们是否有足够的资金再次帮助他/她。请使用照片,统计数据以及为什么他/她仍然需要申请我们的资金的充分理由。

As such, clause (2) is not cast in stone. We need it now due to scarcity of funds, but if our financial status improves, we might be able to re-open our funds to these old applicants again For now, we have to prioritise helping the new applicants
因此,第(2)款并非一成不变。由于资金短缺,我们现在需要这款项,但如果我们的财务状况有所改善,我们或许可以向这些旧申请人重新开放我们的资金。现在,我们必须优先帮助新申请人

All said, we strongly advise everyone to treat AnimalCare as a starter fund and to please find ways to be independent and self-reliant.

Thank you for your kind understanding.

总而言之,我们强烈建议大家将AnimalCare作为初入门补助基金,并请你们找到独立自主的方法。

谢谢你的理解。

 

 

Neutering aid for 1 dog in Lahat, Ipoh (Ho Chin Keong’s)

We have provided an aid of RM100 for the neutering of this dog.

We also wish to thank Mr Ho very much for his thoughtfulness. He had actually had 3 dogs spayed this round, but when he heard about our financial difficulty, he immediately texted me through voicemail to withdraw the claim of two of the dogs. He said he would endeavour to pay for the other two by himself.

Even before this, when Mr Ho first started claiming which was just last month, he already informed us that he will only claim now just to start off his rescue work. Once he is able to, he will raise his own funds or save up from his salary to pay for the neutering of all his rescues.

Mr Ho is a blue-collar worker. We again, thank him very much, for his thoughtfulness.

He only started his rescue work last month and since then, he has had 10 dogs neutered. He only claimed 7 from us.

Withdrawing the claim of the other two dogs:

2018年,11月9日,当日我完成3只流浪狗结扎,并填写完Animalcare援助金表格,每只流浪狗RM100津贴。事后得知由12月起,Animalcare为了帮助全马更多合格新申请者与流浪犬猫进行结扎,将会调整每周援助金。我非常感谢Animalcare整个十月赞助我结扎费,也为Animalcare这十年为社区流浪狗猫的付出而感动!所以这次我结扎3只,我申请1只RM100援助金,援助金表格忘了修改,所以特写此文告,感激Animalcare与DR CHAN为全马流浪狗猫每日辛苦的付出!

IF ONLY there were more thoughtful people like Mr Ho!

Dear Dr Chan,

Good Day! How are doing? I trust you are well.
First of all, thank you very much for your kind effort to provide this generous help in savings the life of unwanted litters and giving hope to the living pets to enjoy better life with us; the animal lovers 🙂
My name is Farah Diana Binti Abdul Fuad and I have been taking care stray cats since I was in kindergarten; that nearly all my life (34 years) and always happy to care and love them until now. I saw they come and go in my life (died to old age, sickness, hit by car). The oldest cats that still happily enjoying life with us are 18 years old Peah, 16/ 17 years old Bengal, Labu & Tiger and 12 years old Da-in. They were from the generations when we only left with 5-6 cats only.
Now my beloved mother, my sister and I are proud owner of 30 cats 🙂 which all of them have been neutered except the new comers; 12 kittens…3 boys and 1 girl are due for neutering in the next couple of weeks. They are also have been vaccinated annually 😉
The newcomers father and mothers of all the 12 kittens have been neutered on 04/11/2018 (attached photo collage) and 11/11/2018; yesterday (the next forms to follow).
Thus, the completed forms and original receipt for the attached collages have been posted via ‘pos ekspres’ on 09/11/2018.
Please find attached and below details of the photo collages for your review and kind considerations.
Photo Collage 1 (AHMAD @AMAT – Male)
Amat has been rescued in Klang on August 2018 near a ‘surau’, while me and my sister; Kak Sally visiting her sister-in-law. He was with a female cat and 5 kittens (3 baby kittens). They were very sick when found. It broke our heart to just walk away after seeing them like that. So, we decided to take all of them in a box to the nearest veterinary clinic in Klang . Amat have been diagnosed with icterus (jaundice) and the others with bad flu, infested mange, scabies and tick fleas. They were also have been badly malnutrition 🙁
As miracle happened and thorough medications, now, Amat, Mami (neutered yesterday, 11/11/2018) and the girls (Gegurl, Lang Lang-next inline for neutering) and boys (Boboy, Milo, Oyen-next inline for neutering) are healthy and happily living with us and 23 others . He has been fully recovered and all of them have been vaccinated : )
Amat have been neutered on 04/11/2018 and he will be caged free soon to allow him explore, familiarize and make friends with others.
Photo Collage 2 (SAPPHIRE – Female)
Sapphire has been rescued in Desa Pandan on April 2018 while we went to a saloon. Sapphire was left in front of the shop with 2 baby kittens  (3-4 weeks old), named them Andy & Bobby. Hungry, malnutrition and infested with fleas, again, we could not help ourselves to rescue the poor ‘mama’ & ‘munchkins’. And in the same week, we also found an orphan kitten (a week younger than Andy & Bobby) when we were in Seri Kembangan, and since we have Sapphire we decided to rescue the baby, later named him C-Mone. We did not have names for them at that time so we called them A, B & C. After few days, my mom, Kak Sally and I gave them A -Andy, B -Bobby (next inline for neutering) and C -C-mone : ) Sapphire is a loving mother. She accepted C-Mone immediately when we introduced him to her. She lovingly licked and immediately let C-Mone to share milk with her 2 boys. Now, all of them have been vaccinated and happily growing up and running around inside and outside the house.
Like Amat, Sapphire will be caged free soon after recovering as she has been familiar faces to the clan 🙂
For newcomers, we will cage them first until they have been neutered and only let them roam free in the house during the day and put them back in cage for bed time at night. That routine can last between 8 to 10 months. After they have been familiar with their surroundings, they will have their freedom roaming outside the house within that year. There is always food and clean water to drink at 2 food court (the car porches) : )
Till my next photo collages. Coming up! Mami & Mama with 3 kittens (newcomers in September) : )
Thank you, Dr Chan and have a great day ahead!
Cheers,
Farah
