Animal Shelters That Need Your Help

Many people approve themselves as animal lovers just because they get weak at the knees when they see a puppy at the pet store. Not all animal owners are animal lovers. If you would just go to one of the animal shelters  listed below, you would be saddened by how some animals have been abused and abandoned. Animal lives are no less than human lives. 
It is easy to take home an adorable puppy from the pet store. But, the real deal is when you commit to taking care of them and loving them for the rest of their lives. If you love animals even if you are not an animal owner here is a list of animal shelters that can never get enough of help. 

PAWS Animal Welfare Society
PAWS (PAWS Animal Welfare Society) is a non-profit animal shelter in Petaling Jaya that has been in operation since 1987. They receive the surrender of unwanted dogs and cats which we will vaccinate, deworm, neuter/spay, and put up for adoption.

I personally have been there and their supplies are never sufficient. There is always room for donation and volunteers.

S.A.W. (Strive for the Animals Welfare) Shelter
One of the only recourses for stray and unwanted dogs and puppies was the local council or so called Majlis, which would euthanize many animals only a few days after receiving them.

S.A.W. was founded specifically to prevent this course of action and to rescue, rehabilitate and re-house as many of these animals as possible. In order to prepare dogs and puppies for adoption into local homes, S.A.W. uses positive reinforcement in the entire animal rehabilitation work

Dogs that stay in the organization's facility in Semenyih are fed, cleaned and walked daily. They are regularly taken to the vet for checkups and vaccinations.

H.O.P.E (Homeless and Orphan Pets Exist)
Homeless and Orphan Pets Exist is a non-profit and non governmental organization which is currently located at Pekan Nanas Johor. H.O.P.E was established in April 2008. HOPE is a 100% NO KILL animal shelter for all breeds of dogs and cats. They need a total of 2400 bags of 15kg dog food per month. That tantamount to RM140k per month for food expenses and approximately RM20k-30k on medical bills.

The aim of the SPCA is to protect defenseless animals and to alleviate their suffering. Established in 1958, the SPCA provides temporary shelter to unwanted animals in Selangor and the Federal Territory. We try to rehome as many as possible, but with more than 600 animals arriving every month the shelter is constantly challenged by a shortage of space and limited funds.

There are so many animals at the shelters waiting for a new home and to be loved. If you want a pet, adopt instead of buying. That pure breed might complete that white picket fence picture of yours but it tantamount to supporting puppy mills. 

Adopt. Don't Buy

  1. I agree. Not every person who has a pet knows how to really take care of one or has the passion and commitment. Which is why the number of animals at rescue shelter doesn't decrease which often leads to euthanasia. I hope people would consider pet adoption more than buying. The ones who buy are usually those who does take them seriously. I just got a pet from an orange county animal shelter and, I'm not the best in taking care of animals but, I'm pretty sure I do know how to give them the time and effort they deserve.
