Educating people on animal care

Not many people know how to care for animals and the Malaysian National Animal Welfare Foundation (MNAWF) is on a mission to educate animal lovers and pet owners on the proper way of going about it.

MNAWF hopes to emphasise especially on having the knowledge and understanding before any attempts are made to handle or rescue animals.

Their aim is to promote a society that cares about animals and the environment around them. The idea is to create awareness towards responsible pet ownership and animal welfare.

This campaign to educate people on animal behavior is motivated by the recent shooting of four stray dogs by enforcement officers of the Kampar District Council.

MNAWF said people may know a lot of things about animals. But when a person comes across an animal, be it a pet or a wild animal, people need to know how to deal with them, how to behave near these animals.

The animal care organisation firmly believes that if people treat animals and the environment with respect, there will not be anymore animal abuse.
