Thirty years ago when PAWS first set up, their shelter sat in the middle of a palm oil plantation, at a considerable distance from the city. But cities grow and over the years the palm oil was replaced by homes.

“We’ve known for some years that we’d have to move, ” Edward Lim, the PAWS shelter manager shares. “The area was scheduled for more development and our shelter was sitting on a piece of land meant for an underground water tunnel which helps to mitigate water to prevent flooding.”
