Animal adoption centres in KL

Looking to adopt a pet? Here's a list of animal adoption centres in the city


Furry Friends

Attractions Animal rescue homes Rawang

This animal farm in Kundang houses about 300 abused and abandoned animals that include dogs, cats and a single goat. Though the animals have a permanent home at the farm, you can ease their financial burdens by adopting or fostering. If you simply want to spend time with the animals, the centre conducts guided farm tours every first Sunday of the month.

Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better

Attractions Animal rescue homes Petaling Jaya

In Malaysia, stray dogs often lead uncertain, perilous lives because of both apathy and ill-treatment. This canine welfare initiative finds homes for abandoned or injured dogs and applies a no-kill neutering policy. Throw them a bone by picking up a furry friend or two at one of their many adoption drives. The ‘Adopt, Don’t Buy’ campaign motto has never been so relevant.



Attractions Animal rescue homes Subang

PAWS is a major player in Malaysia’s animal adoption circle, currently housing over 400 rescued animals. Surrendered animals are kept at the Subang centre so long as they don’t outnumber the adoptions, which may otherwise result in euthanasia. If you want to make a difference but can’t bear the responsibility of looking after an animal, donate old newspapers, old clothes and canned pet food.

Second Chance

Formerly known as Paws Mission, Second Chance is doing its best to control the overpopulation of strays on our streets by taking in homeless dogs. This modest sanctuary has successfully found homes for over 300 dogs and conducted over 25 adoption drives since it was established in 2009. Do your part by always rooting for adoption over purchase.

SPCA Selangor

Attractions Animal rescue homes Ampang

The founding father of animal rights in Malaysia has recently moved to a new eco-friendly rehabilitation and adoption centre in Ampang Jaya to accommodate over 400 animals. Kitties and puppies that pass through the doors of the SPCA are neutered, healed (if needed) and put up for adoption. Before picking up your pet, you will be interviewed by SPCA staff to ensure responsible ownership while an animal inspector may visit your residence in the first few weeks to observe the progress of your new friend.

Attractions Animal rescue homes Cheras
