ANIVERSITY returned to SPCA for another successful year in 2019. Held at the SPCA premises in Sungei Tengah Road in early December from 11 am – 2 pm, this, its fourth edition was jointly organised by Pet Lovers Centre, The Pet Safari, Pet Lovers Junior Club, SPCA and Loyal D.
This enabling university teaches children how to care for animals through Loyal.D's learning through art programme and educational talks on the different aspects of animal welfare by SPCA. Interacting with the animals at the shelter also helps foster a better understanding of animals and their behaviour.
While the SPCA took the lead with an education talk on being a responsible pet owner, and adopting a pet, Loyal.D’s Painting with Pooches (PWP) activity provided a platform for the children to express love for shelter animals and they were shown how to approach and interact with a dog. The 10 young participants all got to take home their artwork, plus a goodie bag sponsored by Pet Lovers Junior Club worth $20.
In this Pet Lovers Junior Club’s activity, the participants were decidedly enthusiastic and passionate about the subject matter on hand. Feedback from parents showed that the day’s event proved has proved to be highly educational and rewarding.
