The set comes with 24 packets of different treats and chews, and the best part is, they are all made from quality, natural ingredients! These snacks are suitable for all dog breeds and all life stages, too. Also, in collaboration with a stationery store, Stickerrific, each packet is designed with an adorable illustration of different dog breeds which also serves as the perfect ornaments for your Christmas tree!

Adoption at Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB)

If your special someone has been hinting, or eyeing to get a puppy or a dog, Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) is the place to go. This Christmas, do a good deed and rescue a puppy, or a dog in need of a loving home. These little ones have been through a lot such as cases of abandonment, homelessness, abuse, and severe injuries. MDDB is not only a canine welfare project, but also a non-profit organisation that actively uses Facebook as a platform to be transparent about what they do, and at the same time, allow the public to share and post information about rescued dogs in need of urgent care. If a potential pet parent is committed to adopt, make sure the individual is prepared and able to provide all the necessary care and attention for his or her furry kid. Alternatively, if adoption is not the right time now, you can also donate to MDDB in the name of the gift receiver; it's definitely a feel-good gift for both you and a passionate animal lover.

 

Side note: Do bear in mind that MDDB is not an animal shelter. Drop them a message on Facebook to ensure they're open before you pay a visit!
