9yo Builds Animal Shelter Like A Boss

Ken is 9 years old and lives in the Philippines, where stray dogs are plentiful but animal shelters are certainly not. To help make this problem animals often face better, this young man started a no-kill, non-profit animal shelter called Happy Animals Club.

With the help of donations (you can donate at his web site if you’d like), he set up an animal shelter in his parents’ garage like a boss. It’s incredibly inspiring to see a 9-year-old taking more initiative to help stray animals than most adults ever will.

Ken keeps a detailed list of expenses on his web site so you know where your money is going, if you choose to donate.

The images below will give you a quick primer on what Happy Animals Club is all about.

Just months after rescuing the stray dogs, this is what they look like thanks to Ken and his hard work. They are almost ready for adoption now.


There are more pictures on Ken’s web site, if you’d like to see them all and read his comments. Thank you, Ken, for helping these stray dogs like a boss. We wish you all the best in rescuing more stray dogs in the future!


Please share this post and spread the word about what Ken is doing at Happy Animals Club and hopefully inspire others to do the same!

About Sascha Brian

Sascha Brian
Known around here as "the German", I am indeed German, but have also spent some time traveling the world. With 10 years of my life spent in the United States, rumor has it that I may even know how to grill a great burger. I don't wear socks with sandals any longer, but I still drink beer and eat sauerkraut like a German. When I'm not writing about motivational and inspirational people on Like A Boss, I can usually be found lifting things up and putting them back down in my garage gym (a.k.a. the dungeon).
