Philippines:~9 Year Old Boy Builds Shelter From Donations After His Story Goes Viral

Do you remember a few months ago, there was a story about a 9 year old boy in the Philippines whose father followed him one day and discovered that he was feeding the stray cats and dogs?

The story went viral and as a result donations started flooding in to help the young boy, Ken, and his animals. Ken did his best to help the animals and frequently spent time with them and offered them food, but he longed for the funds to open a no-kill shelter. Then, a few months ago, photos of Ken with three strays made their way onto the Internet, and people from all over the world began to donate money. "We got enough money to get the dogs I was feeding off the street, feed them high quality canned food, and provide them with veterinary care,". Ken and his father were also able to build a temporary shelter for the three dogs he was photographed with, named Blackie, Brownie and White Puppy, in their garage. Ken named it The Happy Animals Club.

"They gained a LOT of weight, their open wounds healed, and their fur grew back. They also learned not to be scared of humans."

Ken plans to put the pups up for adoption soon. Thanks to the donations, earlier this month, Ken & his father have been able to sign a one-year lease for a space where he can continue to create a nonprofit, no-kill, animal shelter for street animals. He hopes to have it up and running soon.

You can follow his progress, see photos of the animals and donate via paypal on the Happy Animals Club website here:-
