President Santhi Sundara, Treasurer Surya Mangalam and Assistant Secretary Gurmit Kaur took advantage of the National Day holiday on 31st August 2021 and handed over RM 1,400.00 to Mr and Mrs Johnson, operators of Mercy Dog Shelter in Prai, Penang. The money was donated by members of the Inner Wheel Club of Butterworth and Interactors from SMK Convent Bukit Mertajam.


Mr and Mrs Johnson are caring for 150 dogs including 33-35 puppies. They also feed a further 100 stray dogs and 10-15 stray cats daily. The couple confessed that sometimes there is barely sufficient food to feed all the animals. They also fork out for veterinary care when the animals fall sick. There is a team of dedicated volunteers who help bathe and feed the animals.


President Santhi who owns a building and construction firm has set her sights on extending the roof of the shelter so the animals are properly protected from the weather. Members of IWC Butterworth were happy to have contributed to a worthy and heartwarming project for Malaysia’s 64th National Day.
