The Pak Mie Shelter, which has been saving stray dogs and cats for a good 10 years now, has received an eviction notice from the Alor Setar City Council (MBAS) last Thursday, giving them seven days to move their animals and relocate.

But, sadly, they are still having difficulties looking for a new home.

“We complied with the notice but now, we do not know where to bring all these dogs and cats because it involves almost 600 of them. We appeal to corporate or non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to help find a new place for these strays. We need a temporary place such as an old factory or an area of one acre to build a new, temporary centre,” shared 54-year-old Badrul Hisham Ramlee via Sinar Harian.

The Pak Mie shelter was founded by Badrul’s parents, 73-year-old Halijah Idris (affectionately known as Mak Intan) and the late Allahyarham Muhammad Azmi Isma.

They received the eviction notice to give way to the construction project of the regional sewage treatment plant and the ongoing Kota Setar sewerage pipeline network.

Badrul added that the Alor Setar mayor and MBAS assisted in searching for new locations for the shelter, but the suggested locations were rejected by community.

“There were three previous suggestions, one in which was Pokok Sena but residents of the area objected. Another was at Pendang, which is near a waste disposal site but it is not suitable for the long term. One more suggestion was a rubber plantation area that is far from residents but there are people who have already started planting rubber trees there,” he said.

What makes this worse is that the eviction notice came the same day as Mak Intan’s surgery to have her uterus removed following a stage four ovarian cancer diagnosis.

Thankfully, her surgery was successful after doctors spent seven hours on her, as shared on the Pak Mie Shelter Facebook page.

Mak Intan, the late Pak Mie and Badrul have spent their lives selflessly helping strays and showing them the love that they deserve. The least we can do is try to help as much as we can.

For those interested in donating to the Pak Mie Shelter, the necessary details are as follows:

With everyone’s help, we hope that they’ll be able to find a space suitable for the relocation of their strays.
