About Us

How We're Helping

We are a nonprofit animal welfare organization focused on reducing the stray cat and dog population in the Ipoh community humanely and effectively. With the help of our tireless volunteers, Noah's Ark Ipoh cares for, treats and spays abandoned and abused animals. We organize fundraisers, community-building events, and education / awareness programmes on pet ownership responsibility, neutering, and compassion for animals. Please note that WE DO NOT HAVE A SHELTER FOR DOGS.

Our Relevance To The Community

Our Mission

image92

Noah's Ark Ipoh (NAI) was formed in 2009 for the purpose of tackling the huge problem of stray cats and dogs on the streets in our community. NAI is managed and run by a group of 25 dedicated volunteers. NAI cares for, protects, treats and spays abandoned and abused animals.


To date, NAI has treated and spayed over 4500 cats, kittens, puppies and dogs. Funds permitting, we neuter around 30 - 50 strays per month. All these have been funded by generous donations from the public and by our dedicated volunteers and members.

NAI's Priority Is Neutering

image93

As we do not have assistance from the city council to help stop this over population of sick and abandoned animals, NAI has taken on this task of helping to clear the streets of this ever increasing problem. City council's answer to this is trapping and relocating them elsewhere. Unfortunately, this does not solve the problem as these unneutered dogs will continue to breed. There is a huge problem with cats too and this is often overlooked. NAI is trying to get to the root of this problem. Treating and spaying alone is not enough.

Education / Awareness

image94

One of our main focuses is to create awareness amongst the community on pet ownership responsibility. NAI runs education programmes in schools. It provides children and adults with firsthand knowledge on the importance of pet ownership responsility, neutering and compassion for animals.

Our services

image98

  1. Trap and neuter stray animals to reduce the future explosion of litters in our community
  2. Run education programmes to schols and community to educate the public on responsible pet ownership, the caring of animals, and the importance of neutering
  3. Organising spaying campaigns in villages and low income areas
  4. Distribution of educational flyers in banks for people  to read while waiting to be served
  5. Picking up very sick and badly injured animals and treating them at the vets, boarding them if necessary
  6. Working with the City Council to raise awareness that it is their responsibility to help NGOs as this benefits the community as a whole: (1). find a solution to the number of strays  by educating the public (2). fine dog owners who let their dogs roam the streets (3). increase dog licences for unneutered dogs. 

Benefits to our community

image99

  1. To reduce the stray population
  2. Provide both children and adults with first hand information on pet responsibility
  3. Teaching children the importance of having compassion and to get them involved in meaningful projects, this will be character building
  4. Providing a veterinary care service and educating people in low income areas.


Challenges we face

image100

  1. Irresponsible pet ownership. These animals are often not neutered and reproduce very quickly, leading to a population explosion. Also, a large number of animals are abandoned because they are old or sick
  2. Charges for spaying / neutering are high and some pet owners cannot afford this service
  3. Many would rather buy an expensive pedigree animal than adopt a stray
  4. Most of the people managing shelters rely on the generosity of the public. If this is not forthcoming, they end up paying out of their own pockets. As the NGOs are helping to keep the city and the community free from this problem, any assistance from anyone will be appreciated
  5. The public responds only when they encounter a problem  that affects them directly when strays end up on their street.

Noah's Ark Ipoh At Work

Female Dog Badly Neglected by Owner

This girl was saved from an owner who had neglected her for months.  She was severely dehydrated and malnourished and suffered from bad mange. The owner dumped her at his local market once he found out that NAI had been round to check on his dog's welfare. The dog is now under Noah's Ark Ipoh's care. We will provide updates on her progress. 


Please help to prevent such appaling suffering by reporting cases of animal abuse/neglect that you are aware of.

Please help us

Cases like this require dedicated rescuers and financial resources. Please donate towards her care.

How you can help

CRISIS in Papan

Stop the dumping and killing of stray dogs and endorse the TNRM program to control the stray population


Noah’s Ark Ipoh together with other animal welfare NGOs and independent volunteers are involved in the care of stray dogs dumped by MBI in Papan. This dump site is now overcrowded with dogs, leading to dogs overflowing onto the highway and residential area nearby. These dogs are very disorientated, walk around aimlessly and live in appalling conditions. Many are in need of veterinary care, and there is a high risk of the dogs being run over. Furthermore, the dogs are not neutered, making the overpopulation problem even worse. 


We need your help. 


NAI and other NGOs have offered MBI proposals on how to manage the stray population. MBI needs to work with NGOs to reduce the stray population. Please put pressure on the local council to stop catching and dumping or killing stray dogs, and ask them to endorse a TNRM (trap, neuter, release and manage) program, the only way to humanely control the stray population. 


Please use our donate button to make a monthly contribution towards the care of the dogs in Papan. Mark your donation “Papan” if you want every cent of your donation to be used for the feeding, welfare and neutering of the Papan strays. 


Thank you.
