Dear Caring & Wonderful Malaysians,
I believe that despite the fragmentations that occur within our society, we have good hearts. I believe that even though some of us own no pets, many of us have some semblance of humanity and compassion. Please sign the petition.

|SHAKE-UP NEEDED IN MALAYSIA TO END ANIMAL ABUSE
To: The Prime Minister of Malaysia,
We, the undersigned, urgently request that you take the necessary steps to prosecute individuals, government or private entities which have caused unnecessary suffering to animals or neglected their welfare, based on contents of the Animals Act 1953 (Revised 2006).Over the years, animal lovers have stood by and watched helplessly as municipal council workers handled stray dogs with brute force, pet owners neglected or abandoned their pets, zoo animals continued to live in deplorable conditions, and stray animals were maimed/killed by cruel individuals.We earnestly urge you to act in all expediency to quash this kind of inhumane, arrogant behavior by Malaysians, as allowing them to continue will result in the needless suffering of hundreds of thousands of animals every year, and undoubtedly have a negative and detrimental impact on Malaysia’s image worldwide.In the last decade, only a handful of prosecutions have been initiated against animal abuse – making Malaysia a haven for animal abusers. The Department of Veterinary Services – an animal protection agency under the purview of the Ministry of Agriculture – has failed to act on the various cases of animal abuse highlighted by members of the public;
FBI research indicates that animal abusers are 5 times more likely to be violent in society. When they are not punished, they continue their abuse on children, women and society at large. Consequently, Governments all over the world have begun to take animal cruelty seriously by imposing punitive cruelty penalties and have encouraged Responsible Pet Ownership.
No animal cruelty of any kind is tolerable, and no one is above the law.
Please listen to the voices of people from around the world and
