Santarina needs a home
SANTARINA and her five siblings were rescued from a dump in Kapar about five months ago. All her siblings have been successful in finding homes except Santarina.
To make matters worse, she has been returned to canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) by prospective adopters.
“Santarina is a very intelligent canine who is calm and cool all the time. She is observant and is also what we call a ‘talking’ dog,’’ said MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai.
Lai went on to explain that “talking” dogs usually try to communicate with people and this is misunderstood as howling.
“We hope that people will understand and give beautiful and intelligent Santarina a chance to find a home,” she said.
Santarina will be among the dogs and puppies put up for adoption at MDDB’s adoption drive in Summit Subang Jaya this Sunday.
The adoption drive, to be held at Summit’s main entrance from 11.30am to 7.30pm, will have many other puppies looking for homes.
Lai is also asking for public help as some of the puppies have been put up for boarding in various places because two dogs sent to MDDB’s half-way home came in with distemper infection.
“Because of this we have to pay for boarding as well as pay for distemper treatment which is very expensive,’’ said Lai.
The two infected dogs are doing fine and are quarantined at the half-way home.
Distemper treatment includes putting the dogs on a high protein diet as well as giving them immune boosters and medicines to prevent pneumonia and other secondary infections, said Lai.
“We need financial help to see us through this bad period in our half-way home,’’ she said.

Members of the public can also contribute donations such as rice, bleach, detergent canned and dry dog, puppy, and cat and kitten food at the adoption drive.
