JoTong and Uncle Wong are delighted and grateful, a message from JoTong: Yeay, arrived…??????❤️❤️❤️

JoTong says: Uncle Wong was smiling from ear to ear after loading the biscuits into his van ?. As he is illiterate in English, he asked me to thank AnimalCare for the food aid. 

Tong Yut Fun (JoTong) and Wong Woi Kan feed more than 150 dogs in the Balakong area. These are all CNRM dogs. Every dog that they can catch is neutered, most of them returned to colony (unless the dog has special needs) and managed for life with dedication and commitment. The younger puppies are rehomed, adult dogs with special needs are either rehomed or relocated to spaces which are safer for them and sick dogs are given medical treatment. JoTong and Uncle Wong take turns to feed the dogs daily. They cook rice, sometimes Uncle Wong adds chicken parts he manages to salvage and this food is supplemented with economically-priced kibble. It is a daunting and very challenging task to feed 150 dogs every single day.

Uncle Wong works as a mechanic while JoTong works as an admin executive in the human resource department at her workplace.

We are extending our Food Aid to this large colony of street dogs under JoTong and Uncle Wong’s care because of their exemplary CNRM work where the dogs are neutered, given veterinary care, rehomed where possible and the return-to-colony ones are managed for life with love. We hope the dogs will  enjoy the premium kibble!

We asked JoTong what kind of petfood they would like and she said they prefer kibble. We asked if they wanted canned food and she said the dogs would go crazy at the smell of canned food and they would push her down and that would be very hard to handle. In any case, Uncle Wong collects leftover chicken from stalls to feed the dogs.

Here are some photos of JoTong and Uncle Wong feeding their many, many dogs.

There are no doubt, many kind people who take good care of street animals. We are honoured and privileged to be able to help two of them and their much-loved furry friends!
