The event is not just for potential pet parents, as you can still pay a visit to donate or purchase adorable merchandise to support the work of the non-governmental organisation. The PAWS roadshow and adoption drive takes place from 10.30am to 4pm tomorrow and on Sunday. Me.reka Makerspace is located in Publika Shopping Gallery, Jalan Dutamas 1, Solaris Dutamas, Kuala Lumpur.
