Remembering Sheena

Who was she?

Born seven years ago, Sheena was a beautiful German Shepherd who died recently. The hope and happiness of a puppy was dashed when Sheena ended up in the hands of an owner who failed to take care of her. Aside from neglecting her, Sheena’s owner decided to end her life in his old house, leaving no food and water for her “because she was already old”. When the Selangor Veterinary Services Department rescued her, she was found tied up, sleeping in her own faeces. Sheena had to be put to sleep, due to her malfunctioning organs caused by years of malnutrition.

Why we should remember her?

Sheena stands for all the abused and neglected pets in Malaysia. The 21st century has sadly seen an increase in reported abuse of domestic animals in our nation. Many of these pets are returned to their owners after the case is investigated, and prosecution takes place. The Animal Ordinance 1953 has a maximum of RM200 fine and/or 6 months imprisonment as penalty for abusing an animal. In Sheena’s case, her owner admitted guilt, and was fined RM100, not even a quarter of the price of a German Shepherd puppy, and definitely not even close to the price of her precious life. Sheena must be remembered, so that other animals won’t suffer.

This evidence of cruelty does not necessarily end with the animals. When we breed a race of abusive pet owners, we can rest assured there will be other social problems that will arise along with animal cruelty.
