Kramer when he first came to us

Its really raining daggers for us at MDDB. Our golden boy Kramer died on the operating table this morning during surgery. Kramer was born with one normal testicle and one testicle which was growing inside.
He was scheduled for the surgery as the vet opined that the testicle which was inside could become infected or turn cancerous as he grows-up. He was also to be castrated during the surgery as our Kramer had grown-up and started to experience the instinct to mate. According to the vet Dr Edmond, his blood pressure started plummeting and in spite of adrenaline being administered, Kramer's heart gave out.
We are all shocked, especially his dedicated fosterers Irene and Kay, as our Kramer had been a healthy and robust boy. We asked for a post-mortem to be done and the vet found a growth which was attached to his heart and it was bleeding.
The growth is now in a jar in Dr Edmond's clinic. This is a huge tragedy for us given that Dumex also passed away several days ago. An X-ray also showed that she had ball-shaped growth inside of her as well as an enlarged heart.
Irene and Kay, we are certain, are devastated as they had taken great pains to ensure that Kramer was not affected by his disability.
One of our friends Kevin is also currently in Thailand visiting a pet products and good dealer to look into a set of custom-made wheels for our Kramer. We had his life planned out for him and this had to happen.
Whenever a puppy or dog, that we rescue dies, our hearts shatter into a million pieces, tears are shed and excruciating pain is felt. All of us then ask ourselves, how much longer can we take this pain that comes with losing these innocent souls.
Dear Kramer, rest in peace. This dastardly dog-hating place was never meant for one as beautiful as you.
Thank you Irene and Kay for loving Kramer and giving him a good home.
We would also like to thank Norbert and Rasika who had offered to pay for Kramer's medical bills. However, he was never even once sick and had to go to the vet when and after the offer had been made.

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.

Remember them?

Little Forrest now
Senior White now
Ms Husky now
Senior White then
Little Forrest then
Ms Husky then - on the day of her rescue from the pound
Remember Senior White, Ms Husky and Litte Forrest? They were among the 20-odd puppies that were rescued from the evil Selayang Pound several months ago. Many of their peers died of various infections but these three battled. Now having fought a tough battle, they are all well and ready for adoption. Please call us or write to us if you can provide them a loving home - they deserve a chance.
