    Our Sanctuary Manager, was travelling from UK and was volunteering throughout Asia herself, when she fell in love with the Sanctuary and decided to make this place her last stop, her home. Having many years experience working with animals, horses, dogs, cats, reptiles etc you will learn with one of the best 'guru'. She was also an animal advocate during her days back in UK, hence,with her experience we hope to achieve the standard of caring that we strive for and to set an example in Malaysia. Quality of lives is the most important, here, at the Sanctuary for our dear babies. Making sure they have full tummy, comfortable roof, ample exercise and loads of love !

    Our mission is to alleviate sufferings and we are against any form of animal abuse. If you could extend your love & compassion beyond dogs and cats, will be an advantage. Otherwise, its still ok because we will introduce you to our goat, chickens and other critters here and hope to spread the love & understanding.

    Volunteering here, if for those who are willing to come out of their comfort zone. It is a Farm living, not a walk at the beach or a hotel which provides hospitality or room service. Why volunteers are needed? To reduce the burden & work . So if you are up to it, yes, we welcome you.

    What else ...

    On the off days, volunteers go up for city sight seeing, etc. Trains, Uber, Grabcar etc are easily accessible from where we are. The Sanctuary is 30 min (by car) from the city center, from all the tourist attractions. Travelling is made easy by MRT, KOMUTER train. Please get a local sim card or data to have the app. There is only 1 care taker caring for 500 animals, our time is very limited but we will try to assist the volunteers in any way.

    We are a back-to-basic Sanctuary, its a home for this animals and we the caretaker share their home. As we try to maintain the cleanliness, we can avoid the smell and furs. Being in the rural area you will encounter many insects and nature sounds. It is very common to have rat in your room, so we you will have to share your room with a cat to deter the rat.

    This place is for those, with genuine intention to work with animals and gain experience in one of the best sanctuaries in Malaysia not for the prince and princess type, to be precise.

    Only if you are willing to get down and dirty, explore a whole new 'world' and give back to the community .
