*Attention supporters* turns out there is another party involved in the culling of innocent dogs in Sarawak; the department of VETERINARY services aka DVS. These people are supposed to love animals which is why they even took on a profession becoming a vet to help animals, but now is very evident they are the advisers for the murder of thousands of animals. Millions of RM (Malaysian currency) were spent to buy vaccinations to vaccinate these strays personally by them, and now they have thrown out all those efforts and trust between the dog just so they can take the easy way out and kill when they could have advised Chief Minister Douglas to implement a vaccination and spaying/neutering program. On their website it even states one of their core values is to be "kind and caring-compassion, love, pity etc for a suffering person/ ANIMAL". Yet here they are; the devil's advocate behind all the killings. This Animal Welfare Act is implemented in many parts of Malaysia except Sarawak which has only agreed to include 90% of the act- which is part of the problem that Chief Minister Douglas needs to address. However, we now need to turn out attention to the director of the DVS; Dr. Adrian Susin Ambud and urge him to stop this cruelty and to also ask for transparency as to where they've disposed the thousands of innocent dead bodies they once helped just 6 months ago. We see right through you Dr. Adrian and we will STOP THIS.
If you support this cause and want to help out and put an end to it even faster and you have social media please @borneopost #kuchingdogculling on Twitter and @ the Malaysian government and make your voice heard! Stand up for the poor voiceless defenseless animals that are getting murdered. Make them hear us and know we will not stand for such cruelty.

There is a mass dog culling happening in Sarawak, Kuching, Malaysia. Thousands of defenseless innocent dogs will be beaten, dragged and killed from Jan 3-Jan 7 each day from 3pm-10pm. This was sprung onto the public with no notice the day before the event was stated to take place- many locals were not even aware of this and had no time to shelter their dogs and thus they were murdered.
The government is stating it's due to the rabies outbreak that happened last year which is why they have initiated this horrendous act. However, it doesn't make any sense as thousands of stray dogs were vaccinated last year against rabies so the ones that did have the virus would have died within 2 weeks, along with the cull they had also done which killed thousands of dogs. Malaysian animals deserve better and this is not the way to go. A spotlight needs to be shed on this terrible event -this is the second mass culling that the government has initiated in less than a year with people using guns and poison last summer. A conference was taken place after that first culling where there was an agreement of no future cullings - which is evident now that they LIED. Dogs are either dying on the streets from an overdose of the tranquilizer or tranquilized then thrown into trucks to be transported to a facility where they are awaiting their death. The public had been notified that if the dogs were claimed within 48 hours they would be released, however when many locals dropped by they were all refused and said they could claim the dead bodies after they had been killed. The authorities are killing ALL dogs on the streets whether they are strays or household pets with collars and tags. The animals that were vaccinated last year all have a mark on their heads and have particular collars that show they have been vaccinated yet the authorities are still killing every single one of them.
Few good hearted locals are doing the best they can by sheltering as many dogs as possible but this needs to be broadcasted to the world to show the monstrous actions of Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Douglas Uggah Embas and how there are better ways to reduce stray populations with spaying,neutering, vaccinations and hefty penalties including jail time for animal abuse and abandonment.
