My First Experience in Animal Shelter
Quote of the Day:
“All of the animals except for man know that the principle business of life is to enjoy it.”
~ Samuel Butler ~
This is my first time visit to animal shelter – Mdm Wong’s Shelter. I only had a hamster before but after he dead 4 years ago, i never own a pet again. However I still like animal very much and it feels great to be surrounded by so many big doggies and cute kitties!
When I first step into this shelter, I am really impressed and respect Mdm Wong who is taking care more than 200 dogs and cats herself! Her kindness and dedication towards these animal has touched a lot of people hearts and I think this is the reason why there are getting more and more volunteers coming and helping up in the shelter.
During my first time visit, my bf, his mum and I was very excited. We met Rachata, who is the regular volunteer at Mdm Wong’s Shelter. She was very friendly and patiently gave us a tour and explained to us every dogs’ names, habits and their backgrounds. You will know how good is her relationship with the doggies as everytime when she step into the kennel, the dogs will swing their tails and play with her.
This is Rachata, the lady who stand behind me with the little ‘crown’ on her hair. 🙂
Most of the dogs here are rescued dogs, mixed dogs (‘Mongrel’) or abandon pets. They are actually very friendly although some might look fierce. It feels great to be surrounded and played with so many dogs and cats in one time and they won’t bite or harm you.
This is “Ah Pui”, meaning “fatty”. She is really very cute and pluffly! According to Mdm Wong, this is the result of her being lazy to move and always eat a lot! She also doesn’t like other cats which will follow us but always find her own space to stay.
