4PAWS Dogs Shelter in Penang, Malaysia

Location: Penang, Malaysia
Penang Animal Welfare Society (4PAWS) is a registered non-profit dog rescue organization founded by animal lover and advocate, Barbara Janssen.

The aim of the society is to provide a home for stray and abandoned dogs in Penang where we are able to provide care and rehabilitation until they find their permanent homes.

The society has a no kill policy and provides continued care for animals whose age or disability may make them less likely to be adopted.

There are currently over 230 dogs in our care at Teluk Bahang. All of the dogs have been found on the streets of Penang. Many are puppies where their mothers were unable to care for their young, dogs that were abandoned by their owners or have been injured in road accidents or those that left to die from severe wounds.

Our hope is that through the society we are able to contribute to the management of the stray dog population in Penang and give these beautiful animals the love and happy life they deserve.

4PAWS is always looking for committed, compassionate people who are willing to give some of their spare time to help us care for the many dogs that are at our shelter.

To become a volunteer all you need to be is:

Dedicated, compassionate and have a love of animals
Confident with animals and not afraid to get your hands dirty (or feet, or body!)
Have some spare time on your hands. Once off visitors are welcome but we would prefer people that are able to make a regular commitment, even if that’s only once a month at a time that suits you. Minimizing time spent showing you the ropes mean more times helping the dogs in our care.

Volunteers are needed to activities including:

Basic handyman activities
Washing dogs
Walking and playing with the dogs
Help with handling the dogs during visits from the vet
General cleaning duties

Occasionally we’ll also need help manning fundraising stalls or simply getting the word out about upcoming events.
