Anyone that knows us here at Downbelow is familiar with our commitment to animal welfare. In 2017 we built and donated a shelter for SPCA KK (Society for The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Kota Kinabalu) to accommodate their rescue cats. We also sponsor a full time member of staff to work in the shelter and contribute to many of the monthly veterinary bills. Our Director Joanne Swann visits every week volunteering her time to help keep the cats healthy. She also plays a key role in the adoption program.
Those of you that know SPCA KK would have seen the terrible sad situation recently when more than 40 cats were rescued from an apartment where the owner locked them inside and abandoned them with no food and water, resulting in a tragic situation. Sadly 7 kittens died but the rest have been taken in by SPCA KK. The sudden in-flux of cats is putting a lot of strain on the resources at the shelter to a point where maintaining the current health of the the existing cats and providing the required treatment and care for the new cats is in the balance.
Therefore we are attempting to raise money to recruit an additional part-time member of staff and also provide funds to treat some of the new cats medical needs. We are committed to helping SPCA KK in the prevention of cruelty to animals and the rehabilitation of those animals that have suffered.
Our aim is to raise MYR 6000.00 (GBP 1200.00) and our company Downbelow Marine & Wildlife Adventures will MATCH all donations, doubling the amount of money raised.
