Another accident victim

One of our Klang volunteers found this dog today and was told that it had met with an accident about a month ago. The vet says a car or motorbike must have run over its front paws which are almost severed. Luckily, the dog had been constantly licking the wound and prevented it from turning into a maggot wound. Its two back legs had also become considerably thin and the vet thinks the dog may not be able to walk again. Apparently, the dog had been lying in the same spot and someone had been feeding it daily. She is now under our care and we have admitted her to a veterinary clinic in Klang.

Kota Kinabalu Chapter

We now have a panel clinic in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and it all started with this dog. Our friend Mandy had gone to visit her husband's office there and found this dog, which is believed to be paralysed. The dog was being taken care off by an independant rescuer who could not afford to take it to the vet. Mandy did that for her and managed to strike an arrangement with the vet. The lady's who is caring for the dog, will most probably be our representative there and will use the clinic to neuter strays in KK and give them the necessary treatment and vaccinations. We will now work on raising funds for the KK dogs in both Sabah and Sarawak. According to Mandy, the dog which has demodex may also be suffering from distemper as the vet told her that there was a distemper outbreak in KK currently. The dog is now admitted at the Sabah Animal Medical Center and we are hoping it will recover soon.

Its heartbreaking.

We wrote about this dog here .
Today her owner called us after someone had alerted her about seeing this dog's photo in our blog. The poor dog's name was BeBe and apparently she had wandered out of the compound because the gate was no properly latched when her owner's sister had gone to the nearby shops BeBe had followed the lady but must have wandered away to unfammiliar grounds. The family had looked for her for over two weeks - little knowing that she was being treated in a nearby clinic. BeBe died suddenly and the vet says it must have been due to serious internal injuries. However, we believe BeBe would have fought hard to live if she had been reunited in time with her people. She must have pined for them and that's why she gave up. We are heartbroken after speaking to BeBe's owner - if only their paths had crossed earlier. Dear people - please be careful when you are getting in and out of your home if you have a dog. Please ensure that you gate is properly latched. Please also make sure that your dog gets to go out only if it is on a leash.

A friend visited the Klang pound this weekend and says there are about 60 dogs and 20 puppies with four mothers. He said there was also a Rottweiler and a Husky with skin problem. Apparently, the pound staff told him that the Rottweiler's owners had called but did not come to claim the poor dog. We think the Husky must have been dumped by its owners due to its skin problem just like how our Luca had been dumped.
Please give these puppies and dogs a chance by adopting them. The pound is located at Kawasan Perindustrian Bandar Sultan Sulaiman in North Port, Klang. Those who want directions to the Klang pound can call Mandy Chee at Mandy at 012-3616163.

LUCA when we first found her.

Molly The German Shepherd

Remember Molly the German Shepherd?
She has been adopted by a kind lady and has been given a second chance in life. Here's a mail sent to us by Molly's new human mum:

"Attached are the latest pictures we have taken of Molly since we brought her home. The vet has shaved off most of her fur to treat her skin infections, which also makes the emaciation very apparent.

I'm happy to report that she has been eating extremely well and her tail is wagging a lot more than when we first saw her at her previous home. She is such a lovable dog, and my family and I adore her to bits. We can't wait to see her back on her feet, because there is a lot of life in this dog."

Thank you Agnes and family for giving Molly a home. Her previous owners have also agreed to pay for all of Molly's treatment. That's is good as it shows that they have accepted the responsibility of helping Molly get back on her feet again. They are leaving the country in Feb and I hope that all of Molly's medical needs will be completed by then. Molly's plight is also reflective of what happens to many other unwanted pets. Luckily, her former owners had sought a new home for her instead of just dumping her on the streets. Have a good life Molly.

MILKY KIAI The Cool Doggie Dude

This is Milky Kiai and he is a cool doggie dude who lives in Ara Damansara. Milky leads a very busy life and one of his favourite activities is digging-up his garden. He also has his own Facebook account!/milkykiai where he has posted some very fashionable black and white pics. Milky leads a happy life but was at death's door earlier this year. You see Milky is one of the 23 puppies rescued for us from the Selayang Pound by Animalcare. He is one of the lucky few that survived as most out of the 23 died due to various infections contracted from the filthy pound. When he was first rescued he was known as Snappy White because he was in such a foul mood. Can't blame him as he was brutally grabbed and chucked into the pound and not given much to eat and drink. However, his demeanour changed for the better and he was renamed Senior White. He was adopted a few months ago and has since been renamed Milky Kiai. Its happy endings like this that keeps us going. Here are some pics which chronicles his life.
