Thousands of dogs and cats in Borneo have no owner to feed them or provide them with a safe place to sleep. When they are ill they have nobody to care for them meaning they are not able to get the treatment they need. Under these conditions, many would live just a few years during which they would struggle to survive.
IAPWA has worked in Sabah, Borneo since shortly after we were established in 2009. Our work has involved providing a lifeline to the many dogs and cats in need of help in the following ways:

Brave boy Snowie was rescued from the streets of Borneo with a severe case of the skin disease mange. This poor boy had sores all over his frail body and was incredibly weak and nervous when he first came into our care.
The good news is that after many months of veterinary treatment and support, Snowie is now such a happy, healthy dog who loves making friends with both dogs and people alike. Snowie has even recently found his forever home where he will now spend the rest of his days surrounded by a loving and supportive family after all he has been through.
Thank you to all of IAPWA’s supporters for giving dogs like Snowie a second chance in life.
