MALAYSIAN DOGS DESERVE BETTER will host its monthly adoption drive at the Summit Subang Jaya on Sunday, Aug 8. We'll be there from 11.00am to 7.00pm. A large number of rescued puppies would be put-up for adoption this time around as well. Rocky, who was rescued by Eugene would also be there at the drive. Eugene is desperately looking for a family that would take Rocky in. Rocky was rescued after he was run over by a motorcycle several months ago. One of Rocky's front paw has some permanent damage but the 9-month old puppy is not debilitated by it. We have also some very cute puppies with us. Those wanting to donate rice, dry and canned cat, dog, puppy and kitten food, old newspapers, cages, detergent, bleach, dog and cat shampoo as well as towels can drop them off at the adoption drive. Details call 019-3576477 or 012-3739007.,

New rescue

Now that our accident victim's problem has been solved, we have another case in our hands. This beautiful dog was apparently found on the highway by Bond and his family. In spite of being Malay Muslims, they brought the dog home and one of their neighbours Christine sought our help. The dog had tumours on almost all of its teats and there were also tumours in its vagina. The vet tells us that apart from the tumour the dog appears to be very well kept and he believes that she must have been a much loved pet. He said this could also be deduced from the dogs's very happy and friendly disposition. So, we still can't understand how she ended-up on the highway. Anyway, she had her surgery this afternoon and given it was a serious one - we are hoping very hard that she'll pull through. It was a Catch 22 situation whereby if the tumours were not removed, they may turn malignant and spread. If you recognise this dog and know her owners, please tell them to come for her. We have sponsored the surgery with the help of our generous donors. We promise not to scold or lecture them. All we want is for this lady to go back to her loving human family.

Update on our accident victim

Before surgery
Our accident patient with the raptured diaphragm has been operated on and is doing very well. According to the staff at the veterinary clinic, he was up less than an hour after surgery and ate with great gusto. That's a good sign. His legs are no longer splayed and he is able to stand-up but only stands to eat. Given that his leg and thigh bones were fractured, we believe he must be feeling a little pain. We haven't operated on that yet because the hernia was far more serious than the broken bones. The vet tells us that the damage to his diaphragm was so extensive that it couldn't be completely patched-up. There's still a little piece of his liver peeking into his lungs. Anyway, that's unlikely to cause him any harm at the moment. We are now looking for a either a permanent or a foster home for him. Please contact us if anyone's interested.
