Nurturing Kindness, One Animal at a Time

Our Vision: To create a community that embraces kindness towards animals.

AnimalCare was founded by Dr Chan Kah Yein on 31st May 2009 and is registered as AnimalCare Society Petaling, Selangor (Persatuan Penyayang Haiwan Petaling, Selangor) under the Registrar of Societies, Malaysia (PPM 012-10-05062011. Previously: 2277-11-SEL).

Our primary mission: To promote the practice of One-Street CNRM (Care-Neuter-Return-Manage) for street animals and to cultivate kindness to animals.

We are not an animal shelter or a rescue team.

We support individuals who care for street animals and rescued animals and advocate animal protection in as many ways as possible, through education and example.

AnimalCare offers financial aid for the Neutering, Vaccination and Medical Treatment of street animals in Malaysia:

Surplus donations will be channelled to our Food Aid which provides petfood to selected caregivers and shelters: https://myanimalcare.org/category/aid-food/

Our funds come from donations by friends and supporters:

We are a full volunteer organisation and all operating costs are borne entirely by ourselves. All donations are channeled to the animals.

Besides giving aid, we are also an educational platform which shares experiential and barefoot knowledge on caring for animals. While we always advocate consulting veterinarians and experts for professional advice, very much part of caring for animals also come from experience and care. It is in this spirit that we educate.

About the Founder

Dr Chan Kah Yein holds a Ph.D in Mathematics Education. She is not a veterinarian but has a passion to help animals. Throughout her childhood, Kah Yein grew up with dogs, rabbits, chickens, ducklings and geese as pets, but she never had cats until she chanced upon a litter of newborn kittens abandoned by the roadside after the rain on Mother’s Day in 2006. That turned out to be her first rescue. More rescues followed and three years later, she founded AnimalCare, a charitable organisation that offers neutering aid to feeders of street animals. Kah Yein believes that education by example is the key to inculcating kindness to animals. She hopes that one day, humans and animals will live harmoniously on this planet. To date, she has written eight books and some of her public talks are produced on audio CDs, all for free distribution. She continues to run AnimalCare with the hope of helping as many street animals and their caregivers as possible.

Education is the Key to Change!

How to be Kind to Animals

1. Feed street animals and get them neutered.
Practise CNRM: http://myanimalcare.org/cnrm/.

2. Don’t buy, don’t breed. Please adopt – There are so many on the street and shelters. Buying and breeding decreases the chances of shelter animals or street animals finding a home.

3. Take good care of your own pets – Research their needs (physical, psychological, nutritional, etc.) and always give them your best. Every animal is different – spend time with them, understand their needs and provide your best for them.

4. Check that you do not inadvertently support cruelty to animals – Use only products that are not tested on animals (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, detergents, food products), do not support activities that exploit animals (circuses, fishing, bullfights, etc.)

5. Use kinder methods for “pest” control – Use pandan leaves for household roaches, safe mosquito repellent for mosquitoes (cloves in lime), cruelty-free traps, etc.

6. Go meatless once a week (or more, if you can) – Factory-farmed animals endure tremendous suffering. If you consume eggs, buy only free-range, unfertilised eggs and where hens are allowed to live out their natural lives. Eat compassionately.

7. Do not call the local councils to report any street animal as “kacau-ganggu (nuisance)”; they will be captured and possibly, destroyed. Try understanding, empathy and compassion.

This earth belongs to the animals too.
Where they are born is where they belong.

Thank you!

Being kind to animals includes eating less of them. Go for a mostly-plant based diet.

We can do so much to help animals. Every little bit helps.
