Love And Care In Animal Welfare

PAWS (PAWS Animal Welfare Society) is a non-profit animal shelter in Petaling Jaya that opened in 1987. PAWS receive the surrender of unwanted dogs and cats which they proceed to vaccinate, deworm, neuter/spay, and put up for adoption. Currently, there are over 250 dogs and 250 cats under the care of the shelter. The shelter and all costs involved in running it are entirely funded by the generous donations of the public as well as proceeds from charitable events. The PAWS team consists of three office staff, a number of part-time veterinarians, one vet assistant and seven kennel workers. PAWS is a registered Society under the Registry of Societies of Malaysia that is led by an elected committee.
