PETALING JAYA: Rescuing animals is an expensive affair and because of this, rescue groups are constantly trying out ways to raise funds.
The problem is at its worst currently with regular donors tightening the purses due to the bleak economic forecasts.
For canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB), it is a double challenge because of the ongoing construction of its sanctuary in Rawang.
“It is a big financial challenge for us as we also needs funds to treat and feed our 165 dogs," said MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai.
Given this, the MDDB will have jumble sales at all of its adoption drives from Sunday (Oct 14).
Various items like branded shoes and handbags as well as costume jewellery and decorative items will be on sale.
Today's adoption drive is being held at The School, Jaya One, Jalan 13/6 from 11am to 6pm.
It also highlights seven puppies that are in urgent need of homes.
“The puppies have all been vaccinated and dewormed, and we hope they will find good homes today," she said.
Lai said MDDB was raising funds to pay veterinary bills and for kibbles through the jumble sale.
Those who want to donate in cash or kind can drop off their contribution at the drive.
