Walking – and rocking – for animals

loading

The Sarawak Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is raising funds to build a new animal shelter, and it is reaching out to people through ingenious ways.

Folks of Kuching really adore their dogs. On October 25, people from all walks of life turned up for the Wiggle Waggle Walk, which is part of the World Animal Groove (WAG) festival organised by the Sarawak Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA). And with them came their four-legged companions: dogs of all shapes and sizes, from a petite Mal-Shi (a mix between a Maltese and a Shih Tzu) to an elegant Afghan hound.

The walk – an activity aimed at strengthening the bond between owner and pet on top of allowing both to socialise with other like-minded (and like-pawed) members of the community – was just one of several pet-tastic activities scheduled that day, which included an interfaith pet blessing conducted by Father Simon Poh of St Joseph’s Cathedral, Kuching.
