Noah's Ark Spay-Shuttle (The Mobile Sterilisation Unit)
Thanks to the generous grant from CIMB FOUNDATION, Noah's Ark now owns a state-of-the-art mobile surgical van, which is being used to provide low or no-cost sterilisation services to homeless/street animals in Malaysia. This "spay-shuttle" is a 20 feet long caravan equipped with a surgical suite, which also doubles up as a mobile adoption centre.
The Spay Shuttle provides free spay/neuter services for street cats and dogs and lower-income pet owners. Most owners from this demographic group cannot afford to have their pets sterilised; hence this collaborative programme launched by Noah's Ark is working to change this through a holistic and community-wide-approach.
Noah's Ark administers the programme with the help of contributions and donations it receives from supporters, volunteers and friends. This helps to defray the costs of surgeries and other medical expenses.
With this project-based programme, cats and dogs can now be sterilised in public places, such as warongs, gerais, kampungs, bus terminals, schools and resorts.
