What a crazy year 2021 has been, but we managed to get through it! We are one day away from the new year and all the great things it will bring, but before that, The OMG would like to look back at the year 2021 and highlight our accomplishments in helping animal shelters reduce their food burden, along with all the great people we had the opportunity of working with.
That being said, we couldn’t have accomplished any of the things we set out to do without YOUR support, so for that we are truly grateful.
So lets take a look at The OMG’s accomplishments in the year 2021 and we hope to see you all next year!
The OMG family would like to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Located in Pahang, Kuantan Animal Rescue & Education (KARE) is currently home to more than 400 dogs that are rescued from the streets or the Kuantan pound. Run by volunteers and funded by the public, KARE aims to spay and neuter every dog before they are adopted out to a new home. At the moment, due to low adoption rate and lack of manpower, they are not able to take in new rescue cases, unless the situation is dire.
