PETALING JAYA: Raising funds for animal welfare is a very difficult task, more so now when times are hard.

“That is why we are very grateful when we receive offers to help raise funds as well as provided with premises to have our activities," said canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) event and project coordinator Derene Lee.

According to her, MDDB would be in two different places this Sunday (Oct 20) to have adoption drives and fund raise.

“We will be at The Square, Jaya One, Petaling Jaya conducting our monthly adoption drive, as well as at One Utama Central Park to participate in an event organised by social enterprise PledgeCare," she said.

Lee added that there would be puppies up for adoption at both sites, with various fun activities planned for the Central Park event by the organiser.

She said MDDB's disabled dogs, Patch and Rebecca, would be at Central Park to greet visitors whilst canine youngster Luna would be manning the kissing booth.

“Our dogs are all friendly and enjoy being in the company of people and this is going to be a fun time for them as well," said Lee.

She said MDDB was hoping to raise enough funds to settle some bills at the Gasing veterinary Hospital, as well as buy rice for the dogs.

“We have a few dogs that need to be discharged at Gasing, and we are also down to our last few bags of rice," said Lee.

MDDB’s almost 200 dogs are fed kibbles and rice with chicken alternatively.

She hoped both events would get great support, as MDDB was counting on them to see the organisation through.

She said those who wanted to contribute rice to MDDB’s dogs but could not attend either event could write to malaysiandogsdeservebetter1@gmail.com to find out how they could do so.
