Even though funds were low, he didn’t let such an obstacle deter his dream of helping homeless animals, and eventually collaborated with friend and online supporters to raise funds and save the lives of once abandoned animals.

Thanks to the money from online donors, Ken was able to get the animals off the street, feed them high-quality food, and even provide them with veterinary care.

When Ken first found three of the dogs —“ Blackie, Brownie, and White Puppy —“ they used to be malnourished, mangy, and afraid of humans.

It began as a dream from a young and generous inpidual, but soon manifested into a life-saving club for homeless animals. With the help of like-minded people,, the “Happy Animals Club” has grown into a potential “no kill” shelter that will save and help many more homeless animals down the road.

Remember, one of the best ways to curb unwanted homeless animals is to fix your cat or dog if you know you will not be able to care or find homes for their litter. A snip at the vet’s office is much more humane than euthanizing innocent lives down the road.
