About Us

PAWS (PAWS Animal Welfare Society) is a non-profit animal shelter in Petaling Jaya that has been in operation since 1987. We receive the surrender of unwanted dogs and cats which we will vaccinate, deworm, neuter/spay, and put up for adoption.

Currently, there are over 250 dogs and 250 cats under the care of the shelter. The shelter and all costs involved in running it are entirely funded by the generous donations of the public as well as proceeds from charitable events.

The PAWS team consists of three office staff, a number of part-time veterinarians, one vet assistant and seven kennel workers. PAWS is a registered Society under the Registry of Societies of Malaysia that is led by an elected committee.

What We Do

Our organisation depends entirely on the generosity of the public through donations or proceeds from charitable events.

We are inviting you to help PAWS continue to change the lives of suffering and neglected animals as our volunteer. Without you they do not have a chance. Be secure in knowing that you've treated your fellow animals on earth as best as you possibly can.
