Assemblyman Manoharan hosting dog adoption drive

With too many puppies rescued and with nowhere to house them, canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) is desperately looking for adopters or fosterers to take them in.
Coming to MDDB’s aid this time around is Kota Alam Shah assemblyman M. Manoharan who is holding an adoption drive at his service centre tomorrow.

The service centre is located at 7A, Persiaran Raja Muda Musa and is between the Klang traffic police contingent headquarters and Hin Hua High School.

Adorable: One of the 20 puppies and dogs to be put up for adoption at tomorrow’s drive.

About 20 puppies and dogs will be put up for adoption at the drive which will be held from 11am to 5pm.

Manoharan said he decided to help MDDB because he was aware of the plight of stray dogs.

“I also support MDDB’s call for the local councils to initiate the trap-neuter-release-manage (TNRM) method instead of catching and culling strays,’’ said Manoharan.

MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai thanked Manoharan for his kind gesture and hoped Klang residents would come in full force to support the maiden adoption drive in their town.

“A large number of the puppies up for adoption are from Klang and we hope they will be adopted and given a second chance in life,’’ said Lai.

She said those wanting to make donations to MDDB and its feline welfare counterpart Malaysian Cats Care Project (MCCP) can also drop off the items at the venue.

“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.
