Daily Life, third prize singles
June 26, 2013
Dogs roam through the home of German expat Barbara Janssen, who set up an asylum for strays in 2005, and today offers some 250 of them shelter. Janssen occupies a bedroom in the middle of the house. All the dogs are spayed or neutered, and treated by vets at Janssen’s expense. She operates a no-kill policy, and has established the Penang Animal Welfare Society (‘4PAWS’), funded by donations and run with the help of volunteers.
