During these trying times, our compassion towards each other and all living things is supposed to increase. Somehow, that doesn’t seem to be the case completely. The Movement Control Order has affected many people’s livelihoods and unfortunately, this has led to some devastating consequences. More and more pets are being abandoned due to the fact that some of them can no longer afford their pets.

Malaysia Animal Association (MAA) told Bernama that pets being abandoned during the Movement Control Order has increased three-fold around Kuala Lumpur. MAA President, Arie Dwi Andika said this observation is based on the increase of dogs and cats at certain areas that MAS feeds the strays.


“For example, one area always has five dogs, but last night it increased to about 18 to 20, about three-fold. All the dogs that were abandoned there were in good health and very clean.”

Arie said that the dogs were in no way aggressive at all. He added that the owners chose to abandon their pets at quiet, industrial areas instead of housing areas to not arouse anyone suspicion.”They might have abandoned their pets due to a risk of Covid-19 or they might not even be able to afford their pets,” he said.


He asked simply where has the owners’ love towards their pets gone? “What is the fate of dogs and cats that have always considered owners as their own family and as a place of refuge after they are abandoned,” he said. Nor Zabetha Muhammad Nor, a lawyer, said those who have been convicted of abandoning their pets can be charged under the 2015 Animal Welfare Act.

If you wish to help Malaysia Animal Association in their stray feeding program, you can contribute any amount of cash you can to their official accounts:

1.AFFINBANK: 105380001899

2.BSN: 1416141000046124

It’s really sad to see people abandoning their pets especially during a time when we’re supposed to care for each other. Let’s help Malaysia Animal Association in their noble cause through any way we can.
