Are you a dog lover and aware of the animal cruelty/abuse around you? Interested in breeding pets but not sure when to stop?

 

Come And Walk Your Dog with Us

In conjunction with World Animal Day, the first annual Dog Walk organised by Animal Concern Team was held for the first time in Sabah. The purpose of this event is to (1) extend & enforce the Animal Act Law 1953 to end Animal Cruelty in Sabah (2) raise funds to Trap, Neuter & Release (TNR) stray dogs and cats in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

 

 Before We Begin

The pre-registration of RM60 for this walk was located at Sabah Animal Med Centre (SAMC) Foh Sang, SAMC Towering, Jadesa Petworld @ Country Heights Plaze Ph. 3, Animal Kingdom @ Bundusan, Century Animal Med Centre, Grand Millenium, CAMC @ Likas, Pet Lovers @ Lintas, Core Fitness @ City Mall, & Pinnacle.

 

  
Dogs EVERYWHERE!

 

Meet up point for the walk was @ Likas Sports Complex Parking Lot. Registration fees on actual day is RM80 & you’ll get to register your dog, T-shirt & dog scarf. I was trill to see varies type of dogs coming out from your typical TV/cinema screen. We go dogs in trolley or even carry it’s own minion bag :D Somebody say aww

 

 

Friends with their Dogs

Emy, Calista & Melisa was very supportive with this walk. So glad to see familiar faces around support an NGO event. I wish I could help with the over whelming respond. Too bad every1 was too busy before the walk, but the time they left some interested party can’t get the right person to talk to. Vibrant Kitty & I was more than happy to sign the petition even when she doesn’t own a pet & it’s been years since I had dogs @ home.

 

Unexpected Turnout

We did expect around 30-40 owners to walk 1 mile with their dogs with the publicity level but almost 60 supportive pet lovers had walk the walk with the companion of friends and family. All well ends well, I do hope  I am selected to volunteer for the next up coming events to spread the love for our animals :) Do check out the FB page & website for more details.

P/S: The traffic police only arrived when 1/2 of the walk was completed & left very soon before all the dogs done their 1 mile walk
