PETALING JAYA: KL Pooch Rescue needs to raise RM400,000 to build a new dog rescue facility as it is being forced out of its current premises in Bandar Mahkota, Cheras.  

“We are getting kicked out, because the land owner is selling the land," said its founder Shannon Lam recently.  

Lam and her team have so far raised RM600,000 from the RM1mil needed to build the facility.  

The new centre, located on a plot of donated land in Kalumpang, Kuala Kubu Baru, costs RM1mil.  

It will house 150 rescued dogs and include a pet resort that will allow KL Pooch Rescue to generate revenue and become self-sustaining.  

The pet resort will have an on-site veterinary clinic, a dog recreation park, a pet family cafe and an ­agility course.  

Lam said KL Pooch Rescue was eager to become a hub for independent rescue organisations and rescuers to come to when they require funds.

Once it has recouped its costs, any excess funds would be kept in a Pooch Rescue Foundation trust fund.  

“We want to be able to offer funds to other organisations so that they can become empowered to do the work, as we can only do so much,” Lam said.  

Donations can be made out to the  Pooch Rescue Association by calling 016-233 3647 for further details.
