Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.-- James A. Froude (1818-1894)

PAWS launches first mobile animal clinic

Good news on this MERDEKA DAY (Malaysia's Independence Day)

The Klang Valley now has its own mobile animal clinic, thanks to a RM220,000 contribution by Berjaya Group Berhad's Better Malaysia Foundation.
The Paws Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) launched its first mobile clinic today in conjunction with Berjaya Youth's "It's Pawssible" campaign on the benefits of adopting strays and sterilising pets. The mobile animal clinic is not limited to the Klang Valley but will also travel across the whole peninsula.
"This facility is especially needed in rural areas due to the lack of access to veterinary care," said Berjaya Group Berhad executive director Nerine Tan.
PAWS vice-president Chomy Ching said the clinic will also assist smaller NGOs that do not have the funds to sterilise all the animals in their shelters.
The "It's Pawssible" campaign will also see a partnership with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals's Humane Education Programme to raise RM150,000 for the sterilisation of 1,000 rescued animals and to find homes for them.
"Our staff at Berjaya have raised RM30,000 on their own to kick-start the campaign," said Tan.
A charity concert titled Everyone Loves the 90s! will be held to raise the remaining funds needed. For enquiries, contact Wymen at 016-328 0846 or Ivan at 017-668 8436.
