WHEN a Seremban animal shelter sent out an SOS for food, the Negri Sembilan Ai Xin Association swung into action to prevent the shelter’s 2,000 dogs from going hungry.

The non-governmental organisation (NGO) raised RM3,000 and was able to buy groceries including 120 rice bags for Furrykids Safehaven which rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes stray dogs.

Association advisor Tang Weng Hong said the contribution was the first in 2024, with the NGO aiming to raise more funds throughout the year for the shelter which remains in dire need.

The association is now raising RM5,000 more to help settle part of the shelter’s outstanding veterinary fees.

“This is not a one-off project. We will try to help at least twice a year,” he said.

The association also bought basic items like rice, onions and potatoes for shelter workers.

“If more people come forward to help, the shelter would not have any financial woes,” he said, adding that the association was also involved in community outreach programmes like monthly provision of food to 150 needy families in the state.

Furrykids Safehaven president Jeskiran Bhatt thanked the association for its support.

“The NGO’s generous donation will have a significant impact on the lives of our furry companions and those working tirelessly to care for them.

“This shows that collective efforts can bring about positive change,” she said.

Jeskiran urged the public to join hands in supporting Furrykids Safehaven.

“Costs including food for the animals, bills and workers’ salaries average RM100,000 a month.

“Your contributions, big or small, will help sustain the invaluable work carried out by this shelter,” she said.

Furrykids Safehaven also works with the local council to humanely manage the stray population in the community through its Trap-Neuter-Release-Manage (TNRM) programme.

Those interested in helping the shelter can channel their donations to Persatuan Penyelamat Haiwan Terbiar Furrykids Safehaven (CIMB 8009081090) or call 016-230 7854 (Jeskiran).
