PAWS accepts unwanted pets and stray animals – puppies, adult dogs, kittens and adult cats. Once they come to our shelter, they are given medical attention, fed and re-homed, if possible.

Please note that PAWS is an open-admission organisation that accepts all animals. As a result, animals deemed untreatable or unhealthy may not be candidates for adoption, and humane euthanasia may be considered in some cases.

Please also note that the surrender of animals is on a permanent basis, i.e. anyone who surrenders an animal will not be allowed to reclaim or re-adopt at a later time.

Read more about surrendering a stray animal before you make the call.

If possible, please neuter/spay and vaccinate the animals before surrendering them.


Surrender Procedure

  1. Call the shelter office at 017-2847500 during operating hours (open from 9am to 4pm six days a week / closed on Wednesdays & Public Holidays) to ensure that we will be able to take in the surrender of your animals.
    Kindly note that we do not reserve or allow bookings for admission space.

  2. Please be aware that if you wish to surrender an animal to PAWS, you are required to donate a minimum amount:

Donation Amount

TypeDonation Amount
Adult Dog (above 1 year old)RM120 per dog
Puppy (below 1 year old)RM150 per puppy
Adult Cat (above 1 year old)RM100 per cat
Kitten (below 1 year old)RM120 per kitten

Although we have set a standard minimum donation per animal, we humbly ask that you make a bigger contribution to our organisation if you can afford to do so.

PAWS receives no government funding. As the donations we receive from adoptions and surrenders alone are not enough to cover the costs of caring for the animals here (e.g. for food, vaccinations and neutering), we also raise funds through other channels such as charitable events to ensure the welfare of the animals at PAWS.

Donations in cash and in kind are greatly appreciated. For a list of items we need at PAWS, kindly refer to the Donate section.

Your help can make a difference. Thank you!
