View Full Version : Keeping Dogs/Cats in USJ Goodyear Court
23-09-2003, 08:10 PM
Hi all, i'm new to the USJ community, and was wondering on some activities around here. Occasionally, i see residents in the same area as i am, namely USJ Goodyear court 5, have household pets like dogs and cats. My question is, is it allowed? I mean, to me, i thought all residential apartments here do not allow pets? Can anyone help clarify?

IMHO, It's nice to have pets around but I should think that residential apartments are not quite suitable for pets like cats and dogs. Pets may pose a problem to your neighbor and it may cause some unnecessary confrontations. E.g, A Muslim neighbor would most probably not appreciate having a dog so close next door.
It's inherent in most animals or pets that they need freedom, and don't like to be shut in. Imagine a bird in cage forever, isn't it so unfortunate?
So if you live in an apartment, don't give the poor animal a miserable life..
Hope my comment make sense.

hi bslee, i get what you mean. That's what brought me to my question. Cause i see people keeping pets in their place, and might prove inconvenient to some, in many aspects. So just wondering, whether it's allowed to keep such pets, dogs/cats/etc.., in an apartment.

Rotciv, you raised the issue of "USJ Goodyear court 5 have household pets like dogs and cats". Sorry I didnt respond to you earlier.
I have the reply from the Goodyear Management and I post their respond below. Trust I have been of assistance.
Goodyear Court's House Rules & Regulations strictly forbids the rearing of pets/domestic animals in the flats/apartments. MPSJ too has similar rules exclusively for dog rearing. HOWEVER!.. like most Malaysians, rules and regulations is a matter of convenience and need. People choose to abide or ignore as per their convenience. No offense meant but most Malaysians are
just not ready for apartment living. They just don't get it. Living in a landed property and living in an apartment is like living in two different worlds. Each has its rule.
Dogs are not the only problem. Cats are equally problematic. They will do their business anywhere they can. It is not uncommon to see cat poo at the staircase, potted plants, roadside, playground etc. Like dog owners, cat
owners too allow their cats to do its business anywhere it wants as long as it is not in their house. Some owners actually sweep their cats poo just outside their front door onto the staircase landing or their neighbours door and later make a complaint asking for the sweepers to clean after. Then, there is the constant 'meowing' especially if it's on heat or something like
The management regularly issues notices to residents with pets in the apartment. Notices are sometimes repeated and followed up with appeal letters from my office. In most cases, our notices are ignored. When all else fails, the matter is reported to the enforcement division of MPSJ complete with copies of our notices for their further action.
There has been a number of summonses issued to owners of pets in the Goodyear Courts. MPSJ will conduct spot checks on the unit concerned and confirm the existence of the pet in the unit before they issue the summons. You can only guess on how consistent and efficient MPSJ is on their enforcement.
Meanwhile, other residents and the management's workers will endure suffering when the pet owners proudly display their dogs on a leash doing it's business on the road, the garden etc, etc.
MPSJ's dog catchers have been on the prowl again since yesterday evening, going from court to court to catch dogs and cats in the premises. They managed to nab two dogs in Court 10 yesterday. They are expected back in the area later this evening. Uncanny thing is, the dogs seems to sense dog catchers. The moment they set their eyes on the dog catchers, the dogs will
run helter skelter. Yet, when residents are walking by or chase after them, they buat 'ta tau'.
So 'Rotciv', you can help and give us support by making a complaint to MPSJ with details of the unit number. This will give more pressure. You can also help by educating fellow residents against rearing of pets in the apartment or against feeding of stray dogs and cats. But mind your step, you don't want to anger pet lovers.
Please do not hesitate to contact me on the matter at
