Buddhist nun hopes to raise money to care for strays

Chow and some volunteers attend to more than 100 dogs at the shelter in Simpang Pulai.

BUDDHIST nun Chow Khoon Siew travels some 37km daily from her temple in Taman Heawood, Sungai Siput, to an animal shelter in Simpang Pulai daily to tend to rescued and stray dogs.

The 66-year-old has been making the journey since 2015, as it is the only option she has after being asked to vacate former location in an oil palm estate in Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh in Sungai Siput.
