September came and went away. Time must surely be on a fast forward button lately. Or... Dom might have gobbled up September or kept it in his furry pocket. We are going into the second week of October already.

We had a event recently at the Lost World of Tambun Ipoh (which is a waterpark with a mini petting zoo) for World Animal Day in our city. Our event was to create more awareness towards animal welfare. The Lost World of Tambun invited about 70 kids from different schools to their Petting Zoo and we had our vet and some people to go in to talk to these kids about animal awareness. They also played some games and had a good time with all the kids.

We had our booth at the main entrance of the Lost World of Tambun to spread more awareness towards animal welfare and animal care. We also had an adoption drive for some kittens and puppies.

Henry Cats and Friends Ipoh supported our event too.

These two puppies were dumped at the gate of one of our volunteer's home when they were really small. They are perfectly healthy puppies just waiting for a forever home.

This brown sweet lil girl was the first puppy to find a forever home. Such a quiet sweet lil girl.
The rest of the puppies were creating a riot but this girl was just so well behaved.

Our most hardworking volunteer. He gives a lot of his time for the welfare of the strays in our city.

This is the mommy cat. One of her kittens was reaching out to her for some reassurance. 
It is very touching and sad in a way because soon they will be separated.

The very active bunch of puppies and more puppies. They ate and ate and pooed and peed. And then they all slept.

Our event was most successful and hopefully we did create some awareness in some good folks and hope for change in a small way. Change really don't happen overnight. But change can be like waves.

We will still work tirelessly and hope we are on a right path towards making Ipoh a more compassionate city. We educate the young and younger and hope with time, people will be more tolerant towards stray animals as they have every right to be on this earth as much as we humans do too. If you don't like them, all you have to do is just walk the other way. Do not hurt them please.

If you've been wondering what's happening to Piper and Curly... here they are...

they have been snoozing a lot :)

I'm glad the day was a success! And you never know where those planted seeds will end up.

Good to see the boys are still doing well, too!

You've been busy doing good, Ms Oon. I'm so proud of you, though I miss you in the dogblog park and it's wonderful to have an update. What a difference between Piper and Dom's contented snoozing and the puppies' and kitties' uncertain future. Did most of them manage to find homes by the end of the day? Big hug X

I'm glad to see there are people like you defending and helping these sweet animals. It may not feel like you are making a big impact when you are able to get a pet a home, but it means so much to them, every one of them is a life saved.
