Dying puppy being rushed to the SPCA by the activist
An emaciated dog hoping for some food and water
A dead and bloated dog in one of the enclosures

If the Klang pound was bad, the Selayang Municipal Council pound is mayhem at its worst. These pictures were taken by an animal activist who has been trying to bring change to the Selayang pound for years. The pictures were taken today morning (21-02-2010). According to her there were many dead dogs lying around and some had been packed in black garbage bags and placed at the entrance of the pound. There were a lot of blood on the floor and according to the caretaker the dogs have not been given food and water at all because ‘they did not have containers.’ He said the Department of Veterinary Services people have not been to the pound for about a month. The dogs are dropping dead of starvation and dehydration. The place is a nightmare and even some of the councilors have voiced their concern to us. So, people we have to go back to doing what we did for the Klang Pound which had brought about some change. Please forward this to as many people as possible and write to the people whose e-mails we have included in this post. Please also sms the local councilors to tell them that we will not tolerate such cruelty. According to the activist erica chum - she has been highlighting the deplorable state of the pound for the last three years but no one had taken the initiative to do anything about it. She says she has seen many horrific things during her almost weekly visits to the pound - such a dog with one eye popping out once. She also alleges that dead puppies were simply washed into the drains. According to Erica, the vet who's supposed to go the the pound does not do so anymore because of the new location at Rawang. So, she says the dogs are left to die of starvation. These are serious allegations. However, we are sure that people , who had not bothered to do anything so far, will all rush to the pound soon. Whatever, it is - let justice be done for the voiceless.

Oh, no - not again!

Just as we were heaving a sigh of relief that Lester was finally on the road to recovery, our close friends Leigh and Joanne - who are veteran independent rescuers sent us an S.O.S. They had rescued a dog with a deep maggot wound on its head and needed help for its veterinary care.
Apparently the dog, whom they named Rolex, was found in Tasik Permai Ampang, with a big swollen maggot wound on its head. Rolex was wearing a collar and given this - Leigh and Joanne think his owner must have turned him out because of his condition. He is believed to be anywhere between 2 to 5 years of age. According to Leigh -the blood test done on Rolex indicated that he may also be suffering from tick fever. He now needs extensive medical care for his maggot wound which probably needs skin grafting due to its depth and he also suffers from mange. About 200 maggots were removed from the wound.
We have pledged to pay for his medical bills and need your generosity and help to see him through his ordeal. Rolex is currently admitted at a veterinary clinic in Subang Jaya.
Please help us to help him - if you are sending us a cheque please write Rolex at the back of the cheque. If its an online transfer - please mention Rolex as well. You can also call 019-3576477 and tell us the amount and time the donation was made. Please help R0lex - help us give him a chance to live out the rest of his life.

Gaping wound exposing flesh and bone
70 percent of the scald marks have healed and the skin appears to be ok
Relieved and thankful that he was given a chance to live instead of being euthanised.
Thank you for from the bottom of my doggie heart.
I promise to get better real soon.

Smilling for the camera.
This part of the burn may need a skin graft.

Remember the fellow who was scalded by hot oil. Well, we have named him Lester and would like to report that he is recovering from his burns very fast. He looks very happy as well and is wagging his tail as if thanking those who rescued him as well as those taking care of him at the clinic. His burns are healed at least 70 % but we do not know if he requires a skin graft or something to that effect. He also has a deep cut in the leg which is exposing flesh and bone and the vets are treating that as well. This is why we do not put animals to sleep. They are very resilient and always decide if they want to get better or not. In Lester's case he had indicated that he wanted to survive his ordeal and move on with life - that's why he had gone looking for his feeder after being injured. we are glad we did not allow ourselves to be pressured into killing him, as suggested by many, at a time when he needed compassion, love and medical care the most.
