A FARM FOR ANIMALS TO THRIVE
BY JACLYN SHARMELEE and PIAREE RAJANDRAN
THE Furry Friends Farm is a one of a kind shelter for animals. Sited amid the greenery of Kundang village in Sungai Buloh, in Kuala Lumpur , it offers 1.2ha of land for stray and abandoned dogs and cats to run and play freely. Animal welfare education officer Sabrina Yeap, who works at an animal medical centre in Jalan Tun Razak, started the farm with couple Jimmy and Lucia Foo.
However, she added that they intend to make the farm self-supporting rather than depend on public donations. This would be done by selling their own homemade dog shampoo as well as cakes and vegetables from their farm to the public.
Sheena was abandoned in August 2005 by her owner and was left to starve for many days before she was rescued by the SPCA, who found her tied and sleeping in her own faeces. However the rescue came too late. Sheena had to be put to sleep on Aug 18, 2005.
