Several of the puppies rescued from the Selayang Municipal Council pound are finally well enough to be adopted.
Canine welfare group Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better’s (MDDB) adoption coordinator Christina Lai said the puppies were now awaiting adoption at a veterinary clinic in Subang Jaya.
“Those interested in giving these puppies homes, that had gone against all the odds stacked against them and survived, can contact us,’’ said Lai.
In addition to the pound puppies, MDDB also many new rescued puppies and dogs for adoption.
“People have now resorted to coming and leaving puppies at our doorstep and we are once again overwhelmed with countless puppies and dogs,’’ she said.
As usual MDDB will be having its monthly adoption drive at the Summit Subang Jaya on Sunday, May 16 from 11.00am to 7.00pm.
“We hope people come and show us their support by adopting these unfortunate puppies and dogs,’’ said Lai.
She said MDDB could continue their rescue work only if the puppies and dogs that were currently with them were all adopted out.
“We hope our puppies will all be adopted this Sunday as there are many more puppies that are roaming the streets and would probably all end-up dead soon if we don’t rescue them as soon as possible,’’ said Lai.
She also added that MDDB has also started taking in cats and kittens.
“There are just far too many strays due to poor management techniques by the local councils. The Best method is always the Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) method and it’s a pity that the authorities here are not receptive to the idea.
Lai said MDDB also looked forward to receiving contribution in cash and kind to help the organisation continue with its mission.
Those wanting to donate rice, dry and canned dog, puppy, cat and kitten food, dog and cat shampoo, rice, towels and old newspapers could drop the items at the adoption drive.
