Updated: Jun 23, 2023

In Malaysia, there is an unfortunate abundance of homeless dogs who do not receive adequate nutrition due to limited resources. 😔 While it is not feasible to provide long-term solutions for these animals, we can still make a positive impact by helping in small but meaningful ways.

One way to contribute is by preparing and cooking affordable, home-made food for homeless dogs using simple and nutritious recipes. It is important to note that while these meals can provide a healthy alternative to commercial dog food, they are not nutritionally balanced to meet the dietary needs of dogs in the long term.

Working with a veterinarian or canine nutritionist can also help ensure that the meals you prepare meet some of the dogs’ nutritional needs! 😇
