A woman was recently captured on video climbing over the gate of an empty house to rescue 13 dogs and cats that were said to have been abandoned for a month by their caretaker

According to Guang Ming Daily, the house in Taman Serene, Johor Bahru was left empty for three months after the tenant was forced to move out by the owner because she had not paid for her rent.

38-year-old Jenny Tan, who is well-known for saving strays, was alerted by someone living in the vicinity where the abandoned animals were left

After receiving permission from the owner of the house, Jenny and her two friends went to rescue the animals.

On 24 July, she posted about the experience, that went viral with over 50,000 shares on Facebook

"The cats and dogs were believed to have been abandoned for at least a month while the tenant had left the house for three months," Jenny said, according to Sin Chew Daily.

"I walked into the house and saw the animals skinny, hungry, and the whole house was filled with dog feces and urine," she added.

There were a total of 19 cats and dogs found in the house. 

She found out that three cats and one puppy had died from starvation while the remaining animals survived by eating their carcasses

During the rescue mission, Jenny mentioned that two cats ran away. However, she and her friends managed to save the remaining animals.

Since her post went viral, netizens have donated money to Jenny to get the animals neutered and vaccinated.

"I will announce the total amount of money donated and the total amount spent on the neutering and vaccination on Facebook," Jenny said, adding that she will put the animals up for adoption on social media, according to Sin Chew Daily.

After the post was shared, it was said that one of the animals, a Golden Retriever, had caught the attention of a netizen who claimed that the dog belonged to her

The dog's "owner" told Jenny that she had left it with her friend, who also happened to be the tenant.

"After moving house, I realised that I was not allowed to keep my dog at my new place, so I left it with my friend and I did not expect to lose contact with her," the girl told Jenny.

Jenny mentioned that she will not put the Golden Retriever up for adoption until it is proven that the dog belongs to this lady, reported Sin Chew Daily.

Since then, Jenny posted on Facebook that the animals are safe and are currently under her care.
