"When you give him your heart, he gives you his"

That title refers to man's best friend. Definitely not human. It is none other than DOGS! I do not know why but i somehow got myself signed up as a volunteer for the "Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals @ SPCA" few weeks ago. Maybe because i have such a long break ahead of me or maybe the love for animals that i have or perhaps i kept on repeatedly telling myself that it is the time to give than to receive. Over these months, the issues over the newspaper were the heartless malaysians who tortured their pets by kicking them, punching them, dragging them more than 100m with the car and worst, a GIRL who actually kicked a cat till it became lifeless in front of a CCTV! Her reason to ask for forgiveness was that she was too stress out due to her parents' divorce! Understandable but UNFORGIVABLE! You do not treat those animals as if they were your soft toys. You cant just step on your your pets like u did on your soft toys..Their life are as valuable as a human being. They are the ones who are loyal to you. You do not have to worry that your dog will stab you at your back. And looks like Malaysia Government is not so fond of animals.

We only have Section 44 of the Animal Act 1953 (2006 Amendment) which says that anyone guilty of an offence of cruelty to animals shall be liable to a fine of RM200 or imprisonment for a term of six months or both. RM200 in this 20 century?? You got to be kidding! People now a day can just grab any of the Louis Vuitton bags worth more than thousands and walk out from the store with their heads held high. Do you think this sanction even make sense? So, your pet is only worth RM200 for all those kicks and punches he received? Poor thing! First thing that should be done is that:

1. The punishment should be heavier! not justRM200 or 6months imprisonment.
2. The Enforcement of this act
3. To spread the awareness that the nation can do things more than just to complain tru nets, (this is what the SPCA is doing now, they educate the animal loves that they should accumulate the evidence of the person who torture his or her pet and send those evidence to them for further actions.)
4. Change the "tidak apa" mindset towards the animals
all the countries above have "more-make-sense" punishments for this offence than malaysia. Malaysia, watch and learn pls!
