Pulau Ketam animal rescuer Yeap passes
Animal lover Sabrina Yeap, who founded the Rawang-based no-kill animal sanctuary Furry Friends Farm (FFF), died of leukemia Tuesday afternoon. She was 49.
Her leukemia was not known to her until she took a blood test when she was hospitalized Monday night, according to a report by the Malay Mail.
In 2009, Yeap came to national fame over her actions which led to the rescue of stray dogs which had been left on Pulau Ketam, sparking outrage from all over Malaysia.
The Kundang-based Furry Friends Farm, a non-profit organization, was formed in October 2006 as a no-kill animal sanctuary for rescued, abandoned and stray dogs and cats. According to their Facebook page, it is home to 200 dogs and 150 cats. Volunteers will continue Yeap's work in the interim.
A wake was held for the devoted animal lover Wednesday, and Yeap's cremation will be held tomorrow morning at the Shah Alam Crematorium.
Rest in peace. God loves u more, that's why He needs u earlier.
