This dog was rescued from the clutches of some people believed to be dog-eating foreigners. They had caught her in a sack and was whacking the poor dog against a lamp post when someone spotted them. She was so terrified that she did not move from the place for the whole day. We have since taken her in and vaccinated as well as spayed her. She has overcome her fear of people and has a nice friendly disposition. She is being fostered by the Lim family because we want her to get used to a home environment.


We received some bad news this morning and are very heart broken that Goldie the Labrador's eyesight cannot be restored.
Animal ophthalmologist Dr Izak Venter who saw Goldie at the animal hospital in Jalan Tun Razak this morning said the retina in both her eyes were severely damaged and he believes that this could be due to her being infected by distemper at an early age. Goldie was rescued from a pet shop and we know how notorious some of this places can be and what comes to mind is the Malay Mail report some years ago that a pet shop had placed a puppy suffering from parvo near the stairwell for it to die. Perhaps, Goldie was so strong that she didn't die but the lack of medical and supplementary care to arrest the damage by distemper had resulted in her becoming blind. Dr Venter also says that part of her brain is also damaged. We had waited for months for Dr Venter to come down and hoped he would be able to restore Goldie's sight but it looks like fate had other plans. We would liketo thank those who had contributed towards Goldie's eye surgery. We are now desperately looking for someone to take Goldie in. She is a loving and genteel dog and has been spayed and vaccinated. We will provide her food and pay for her medical care if someone takes her in. If you can't adopt her fostering is also welcome. Please help. She is still at the hospital and we will leave her to board there until the end of the week. Those who want to visit Goldie can go to:ANIMAL MEDICAL CENTRE, WISMA MEDIVET, NO 8, JALAN TUN RAZAK, 50400 KUALA LUMPUR
Anyway, Dr Venter, who is a consultant with the renowned Johannesburg Animal Eye Hospital, is a very accomplished animal ophthalmologist and if you have pets with eye problems, he's the one who can help. Here's something about him:


Dear folks,

Attempts to sabotage us

If you read the comments co0lumns - you will note attempts to sabotage us with various allegations. These are undoubtdly done by sicko individuals who are being eaten up by their spite and vindictiveness. The allegations are:

1) We owe vets money. What's new? Don't we say that here all the time? Yes, we owe vets money because we carry out many rescues which requires intensive care. We are also neutering, neutering and neutering. So, please everyone this allegation is true - we owe our vets money because we are very short of funds. So , please people - send us your loose change so that we would be able to settle the account with all our vets.

2) Some vets don't like us.

Of course they don't. We have proven them wrong that all dogs that are infected with parvo and distemper should be put to sleep. However, there are also many vets who help us treat our rescues that suffer from parvo and distemper and continue helping us eventhough our payments are slow.

3)That we have problems with other rescue groups?

Pray tell which one?

4) We dognap.

Of course we do. We have no qualms removing dogs from abusive owners and we challenge these owners to lodge police reports against us for putting an end to their cruelty.

5)We play vets.

We don't play vets but have formulated our own treatment protocol for distemper and parvo with the help of one of our regular vets. We are proud of it as it has saved many canine lives. We have also helped owners treat their infected pups and dogs. What's wrong if we use our brains to think of ways to treat our pups and dogs?

6) We put cats and dogs to sleep.

Yeah, right! Stop contradicting yourself - first you say we owe vets money and now you say we kill. If we are believe in putting animals to sleep - our veterinary bills won't be so high!
