animal adoption centres in kl and selangor

List of Animal Adoption Centres in KL & Selangor Area 2021

Like other countries, Malaysia struggles with stray dogs and cats. Many of these animals have never experienced life in a loving, family home. Luckily, there are animal shelters and animal rescue organizations that rescue and rehome these animals.

So if you’re looking to adopt a dog or a cat in the Kuala Lumpur area, do visit these animal shelters and animal rescue organizations and bring home a furry friend:

OBS: Do note that we, PledgeCare, are not an animal shelter but a social enterprise donating our proceeds to charity. We do not offer any dogs for adoption. However, we encourage you to check out the shelters down below.

1. KL Pooch Resort And Rescue (KLPR&R)

KL Pooch Resort & Rescue

KL Pooch Resort And Rescue (KLPR) is an animal welfare organization who treats and rehomes rescues. Their mission is to be self-sustainable. So if you’re not looking to adopt, why not treat your dog with a complete makeover in the Doggie Doos Salon to help fund the maintenance of the place.

They also provide dog boarding. During your pup’s stay at KLPR&R, it’s possible for him to get a swim in their saltwater pool or getting some exercise on their custom-made slat treadmills.

KLPR&R also hopes to educate people on why it’s crucial to neuter/spay their puppies and over time see a decrease in strays on the streets. If you’re curious in learning more about KL Pooch Resort and Rescue, you can check out their Facebook or website.

3. Allergic Rescuers

Allergic Rescuers Kuala Lumpur

Allergic Rescuers KL is an independent animal rescue group comprised of Rosy Kim, a Korean-American expat spouse who was previously working in the fashion industry in Hong Kong, and Jon Wong, a compliance officer during the week and a devoted animal rescuer on the weekends.

As independent rescuers, Rosy and Jon rely on their own time, energy and financial resources to rescue, foster and adopt out stray animals rescued from the streets, despite their cat allergies. They operate with a lot of help from a dedicated network of fosterers, fellow independent rescuers, and few sponsors who donate funds or supplies.

Since inception in June 2018, they have managed to take 130 animals off the streets and successfully adopted out 90+ of them to loving homes. In addition to adoptions, they also practice TNRM (trap-neuter-return-manage) for cats too feral to be adopted. All animals under their care are socialized, de-wormed, de-fleaed, vaccinated at least once and spayed/neutered if old enough, prior to adoption.

Do make sure to check out Allergic Rescuers KL on Facebook, Instagram and their website.

If you have any inquiries, you can reach them online through Facebook or Instagram.

Actually, the centre is a pet shop but they don’t sell animals. Instead, they rescue strays, neuter them and put the animals up for adoption once they’re in better shape.

The centre homes 35 dogs and 8 cats and is solely run by Aileen and one employee. Besides adopting, they also provide boarding, grooming services and sell pet accessories and necessities.

My Pets Haven relies on donations to help with the bills related to our animals. They also welcome volunteers any day to help out – you just have to contact My Pets Haven and schedule a date.

  15. Hi there I would like to adopt a puppy
    Is there any bichon frise,chow chow ,golden retriever , Japanese Spitz,Maltese or teacup pokerian

  16. Good day all,
    So the rescue family of 10 dogs (2 Adults & 9 puppies) i found few months ago have no other option but to be left out somewhere.
    All homes /shelters in and around kl/selangor are at full capacity.
    I cannot care for them much longer as I will be leaving for overseas in the next 2 days.
    I cannot stress how hard it is for me to do this, but I have been given no other option.
    So a last plea here for anyone to help care for this family of dogs.

  17. anyone here can help to adopt my 8 yrs old female dogs (Poodle) due to move into a condo where pets is not allowed, can someone adopt her, i really need help. Thanks

  18. Dear all,

    Just some pointers/advice for everyone here.
    1) If you have rescued puppies/kittens, please foster them. At the same time, post good, clear pictures of them (create a profile) and post in on https://www.petfinder.my/listings.php

    2) On that site, you need to create an account, it’s quite simple. There is paid posting (where it gets highlighted on the main page as well as 2 other sites. There is also free posting where coverage is limited, I would suggest you pay a bit for the wider coverage posting. I got 3 adopters from Petfinder and I think it is affective.

    3) There are animal groups such as Voice for Paws (run by volunteers). They are on Facebook. They have adoption drives every week in Bangsar. I want to stress here, they do not have a shelter. You need to be there during the adoption drive and promote it to the public on that day.

    4) Another way is to promote the puppies/kittens as widely as possible on Facebook, to your friends, family, on animal NGO FB pages, etc. Please ask them to spay/neuter the female puppies once they are 5-6 months old. This is a must! Female dogs give birth once every 6 months. Female kittens give birth even more frequently. This is a major issue here in Malaysia. Every responsible cat/dog owner must spay/neuter their pets. Once the breeding stops, the suffering will end as well.

    5) If you have an adopter who agrees to adopt from you, please ask the adopter to send pictures/videos of the adopted animal one week after adoption – just to check up on them.

    6) Animal shelters are overrun and need funding. Please try to foster the animals as long as possible. Get them adopted into good families, in the long run, you are also helping the animal shelters cope with the tens of thousands of animals who are abandoned every year. That is why spaying/neutering your pet is very important. The cycle of suffering must end and we can try to do our part to make our society a better place (for humans as well as animals).

    7) Please be patient – all of this takes time. It will be stressful, time consuming, tiring, and at times frustrating. Just try your best to help the animals that you’ve rescued. Your efforts mean the world to them.

    Thank you.

  19. Hello, good day!
    My dog has recently gave birth to beautiful four female puppies and I would really love to keep them all if I have more space at my home. Currently, I am living in a single story house. So, I was wondering, can I surrender them to you and sponsor all four of them? At least, I know they are safe and taken care there rather than to just leave them unattended. I have tried to find people to adopt them and give them a permanent home but yet to find one. Please do let me know. I am really looking forward to your reply. Thank you so much and have a great day ahead.
    Lots of love,

    I am just going to leave my message here. Please do contact me if any are interested. I just need a home to place them. This is my email address (kush_gostellow@yahoo.com)

    Thank you so much!

  21. If any of the animal shelter, willing to take all the 6 stray dogs that me and my wife are caring, we will be very gratefull.

    We are willing to give monthly token to any animal shelter to care for the dogs.

    Thank you.

  22. I’ve called 14 homes already and all are full… And none can give me help as to what do I do with two adult dogs and their 6 puppies left by someone on my street. I am not impressed that not one could give me help, maybe a member, a volunteer, a Foster family contact… I’m at my wits with these dogs. I work offshore so I have no time for these dogs.
