Hope for animal shelter in M'sia as eviction notice is suspended

Paws Animal Welfare Association in Selangor has been given some respite after its eviction notice was suspended.

The animal shelter in Malaysia had been served a notice on Nov 10 by the Petaling Land Office, ordering it to vacate the land within 14 days.

But Selangor chief minister Azmin Ali recently suspended the eviction notice, reported The Star.

He said at an event on Tuesday (Nov 18): "I will speak with the district officer and see how best this matter can be solved."

Paws manager Edward Lim was at the event to meet Mr Azmin and plead his case.

Reassuring words

Mr Azmin said a meeting between Paws and the Selangor land office was scheduled for Wednesday (Nov 19).

Paws, which houses 260 dogs and 280 cats, has been at its current site for 27 years.

Mr Lim said: "We were in a quandary, but his reassuring words and suspension of the eviction notice has given us some hope to hold on to.

"We won’t know what to do or where to go if evicted".
