A screenshot from the video posted on Twitter

PETALING JAYA: A video of a woman feeding two abandoned dogs in her housing area in Puchong has gone viral on Twitter.

On May 17, the woman - whose name is Hanis according to her Twitter handle - uploaded a video of her feeding the two dogs with some dry dog food.

In the video, she tried to push the plates of dry dog food under the gates of her neighbour's house and the the dogs eagerly started eating the food.

Hanis included the caption, 'Apa punya manusia pindah rumah, tinggal anjing kelaparan entah berapa lama. Kesian dia lapar.' (What kind of human moves away and leaves the dogs behind to starve. Pity, they are hungry).

In a thread of tweets, Hanis wrote that the dogs were left behind in a housing area in Puchong when their owners moved to Kota Kemuning.

The thread included two other videos of her bringing food to the dogs, which were wagging their tails as she approached them with food.

"I managed to get another neighbour to help provide water to the dogs every day," she said, adding that the neighbour agreed, as long as the dogs do not make any noise.

Hanis also wrote that she had attempted to contact the Veterinary Services Department for assistance, but no one answered.

"I've written an email to them," she said, adding that she would try to contact the local council to assist with the matter.

It is unclear how long the dogs were left behind and how often Hanis fed the dogs.

The thread was retweeted over 15,000 times and liked over 9,800 times at the time of writing.

Many complimented the good deed done by her to care for the dogs.

Hanis wrote, "Semua ni kerja tuhan. Tuhan yang gerakkan hati i untuk tolong. I cuba tolong takat mana yang i mampu." (All this is God's work. God prompted me to help. And I try to help as much as I could.)

She also expressed hope that the dogs will be placed in a better shelter.

The Star has attempted to contact Hanis for more details.
