Our Voice is Their Voice

Main aim of the charity

Their main activities revolve around rescuing dogs from the local council pounds as well as off the streets. Once they have been rescued, the dogs are vaccinated and neutered before they are put for adoption. Their aim is to primarily address the issues pertaining to the stray management as well as to rescue, treat and rehome sick, abandoned and destitute dogs. Also, in Malaysia dogs are severely abused.

How the employee got involved and why

I love dogs & started my own rescuing of dogs until my home got too small & ran out of space. That's when I found Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) who work tirelessly in rescuing dogs or any animals in need of rescue especially the abused, injured, accident, paralyzed etc. I join them on rescue efforts as well as sponsor dogs monthly & sometimes send a truck load of food or essentials to their shelters on top of paying for the vet bills for dogs in need.

What work does the employee do for charity?

I sponsor these dogs especially the ill ones & that need medical attention. My job is to help them with funds/food/medication etc for these dogs. I also jump in on the rescue efforts especially emaciated dogs/animals (including cats, cows, goats) etc.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

The proceeds/funds would be channeled to the shelter in 3 ways - to contribute to the fund to treat the sick/wounded dogs, to continue to build accessories for the paralyzed dogs & to build the forever home that is in construction for these fur-kids

What impact would winning have on the employee?

I would give be an unimaginable sense of satisfaction to know that humanity towards animals in us still exist. We are the voice of these animals & if they need our help just like humans, we need to act on it as well. Dogs are loyal creatures who give only their love, affection & compassion to us human & they never expect anything in return.
