We are pretty pissed-off with what we heard today. Apparently a vet with the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) has instructed that all the puppies in the Klang pound be put to sleep because they 'won't survive.'
No doubt, some of the puppies have succumbed to distemper, parvo or corona but many have also survived including Madeline - who is ready for adoption.
This vet Dr TR (who is incidentally a Klang girl) has no right to make such sweeping and stupid statements.
Her instructions were conveyed to us by the pound workers - and we feel that even though the Klang Municipal Council had waived all payments to encourage people to take dogs from the pound - Dr TR has just thrown a spanner into the MPK's efforts.
Instead of making stupid statements such as this Dr TR should advise the pound people to:
- separate mothers and pups from the rest of the dogs
- separate pets and strays
- separate sick dogs from healthy ones
- instruct MPK to provide the pound with disinfectant and detergent to clean the place
- instruct the MPK to build a proper drainage system for the water from the pound to flow out (it is now seeping out onto the road outside - creating contamination of sorts)
