Little Forrest among 12 puppies up for adoption

CANINE welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) is hoping plucky puppy Little Forrest finds a loving home at its adoption drive at the Summit Subang Jaya shopping complex on Sunday (June 13).
The adoption drive at Summit’s main entrance will be held between 11am and 7pm.
MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai said Little Forrest was rescued from the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) pound in February.
“He was rescued by an animal activist who visited the pound. Little Forrest was very sick and had countless ticks on him,’’ said Lai.
Thanks to the dedication of his rescuers, he pulled through after being put on drips and given a blood transfusion.
Currently, after being discharged from the clinic last week, Little Forrest is a happy puppy in need of a loving home.
She added Little Forrest had almost died on several occasions at the clinic after his rescue.
Luckily he had pulled through and Lai attributes this to the puppy’s fighting spirit.
“He has a strong will to live and fought very hard to survive. Sadly, most of the puppies rescued with him succumbed to various illnesses they contracted at the pound,’’ said Lai.
Besides Little Forrest, MDDB will also be putting up more than a dozen puppies for adoption at the adoption drive this Sunday.
According to Lai, MDDB rescues many puppies monthly and always in a dire need to locate good homes for them.
“People have also taken to leaving puppies at our door step and because of this we are always full house,’’ said Lai.
Lai added MDDB has also started to actively rescue cats and kittens and would be launching a feline rescue group called Malaysian Cats Care Project (MCCP) soon.
Those wanting to donate cash and kind can also drop their contributions off at the adoption drive this Sunday.
“We need dry and canned dog and puppy food, dry and canned cat and kitten food, old newspapers, dog and cat shampoo, old towels, rice, cages, detergent and bleach,’’ said Lai. For details, call 019-3576477, 012-3739007 or visit
