Active mawa campaigns that need your help
Adopt Don't Shop
Adopting a pet is a responsible and fulfilling choice that benefits both the animal and the adopter. It saves a life, supports MAWA shelters, and leads to a strong bond. Shopping for a pet, however, fuels the cruel puppy mill industry and takes away homes from animals in need. Adoption provides a loving home to a homeless pet and helps reduce overpopulation. Choose adoption to improve the welfare of animals and bring joy to your life.
Nationwide Stray Management
Malaysian Animal Welfare Association (MAWA) has launched a nationwide program to address the growing number of stray animals in the country. The initiative aims to educate the public and manage existing strays with a comprehensive program that includes effective control and management, monitoring, regulation, veterinary services, volunteer programs, and public alerts. The program will also reduce animal suffering through improved care methods.

Our Evergreen Success Story
A Malaysian girl, 4 year old Madhushree, became a hero after saving a puppy from a sewer. The story went viral after MyForeverDoggo, a platform dedicated to connecting dog shelters and adopters shared it. Madhushree is the daughter of the founder of the Malaysian Animal Welfare Association (MAWA). Her father heard a noise from the sewer and realized it was too small for him to access, so Madhushree crawled in and rescued the puppy, which they named Princess Bujji. The story has been well-received online, with many praising Madhushree's selflessness and her father for raising such a kind daughter. Full article here.
