9 Y/O Starts Animal Shelter In Garage

This choked me up. A lot.

For as long as he can remember, it has been 9-year-old Ken’s dream to open an animal shelter to help the stray dogs and cats on the streets of
the Philippines. Although Ken anticipated that he wouldn’t be able to start his own shelter until he was an adult, that dream has now become a
reality thanks to his own hard work and the help of his father, concerned locals, and kind donors from all over the world. The main goal of Ken’s
shelter, named the Happy Animals Club, is to rescue dogs from the city pound, where most of them are put down.

Back in February, a photo of Ken feeding dogs on the street went viral. Touched by reading about the young boy’s compassion and determination to help
stray animals, kind strangers everywhere donated enough money to enable Ken to move the dogs into a shelter he built in his garage, feed them
high-quality canned food, and provide them with veterinary care. As a result, the three dogs Blackie, Brownie, and White Puppy—who had been
underweight, malnourished, mange-infected, and scared of humans—became clean, healthy, and happy after just two months of care.

He has earned enough money to lease a lot, and is slowly starting to get more animals in so that he can nurse them to health and adopt them out.

I’m always amazed how loving and wonderful children can be. You know someone has had some amazing influences in his life and is going to go very
far. This is the kind of thing everyone wants to do, but not many actually try.

I don’t have much to say because I’m having a Domo moment. Spay and neuter your pets. Unless they are a unicorn or shark horse hybrid.

If you want to donate you can go to THIS LINK but it’s gotten a lot of press and the
site can’t deal with the traffic at the moment. Try again tomorrow.


I think this sort of thing effects the world in more than one way. I saw the story and want to go out and do something too. I’m sure I’m not
alone. This kid is inspiring for people of all ages.
