We were told cages were sent to the Klang pound to prevent overcrowding - in addition to detergent and everything else required. Anyway, its good the DVS is putting in the extra cages even if it is only done after we had sent a cage over to drive across the message that extra cages were urgently needed.

The DVS is finally doing what it should have done ages ago. It is sad it has to come to a situation where we had to push them to do these things. Had we merely resorted to pleading and pleading with the MPK - the situation would not have changed a bit.

We are happy that the DVS and MPK have finally seen the light. We will now gladly make way for the late comers - who didn't give a puppy's bottom - about the situation to move in and take over now. Hold your series of meetings and do what you must now that we have cleared the path for you.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our friends and volunteers who had gone to the pound and initiated the change. Thank you Mandy - for delivering food for the pound dogs every week.

And finally a big THANK YOU to AnimalCare which had gone in and rescued 50 over canines and relocated them when no other organisation had cared to do so.

We have received more than 20 puppies from this batch and some have died due to various diseases contracted from the pound. We are still fighting very hard to ensure that the survivors will make it and will rehome them as soon as they recover.

We will continue delivering the food until we are sure that sufficient food is being provided for the dogs.

We hope this piece of news is true

We have been duly informed that the Veterinary Services Department had gone to the Klang Pound with medicines and disinfectants. The pound workers were also briefed on how to disinfect the place. We hope this is indeed true and if it is - we would like to thank MPK and DVS for putting right what has been so very wrong. We would also like to congratulate the MPK's acting director of health En Zul Abbas for taking the constructive criticism levelled against him and his department and working to improve the situation. No dogs were apparently put to sleep today. For now, this is what we gather. However, if this is not true - we will continue with our advocacy work. We will update once we have checked the pound.

We have been alerted that the DVS will be going to the Klang Pound tomorrow morning to put down some dogs. Surprisingly, we were also informed that they would be bringing food for the dogs that would be spared the syringe. Bringing food for the dogs is a good move but should have been done before all the demonstrations and pressure from the public.

Now on another matter, we also want to ensure that the dogs, that will be euthanised, are put down according to way stipulated in the DVS guidebook.

Meaning that they would first have to be administered with sedatives and only then euthanised. So, each dog that is put down will receive two injections - the first one to make it fall asleep and once the poor dog is asleep - the second jab to stop its heart.

Its now left to be seen if the DVS vets follow guidelines tomorrow.
