A puppy that was badly scalded with hot oil willbe among the 10 puppies and dogs put up for adoption by canine welfare project Malaysian dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) in Klang this Sunday.

The adoption drive will be held at Kota Alam Shah assemblymanM. Manoharan’s service centre at 7A, Persiaran Raja Muda Musa, Klang, from10.00am to 5pm.

Theservice centre is located between the Klang traffic police station and Hin Hua High school.

The little puppy Napoleon was not even two monthsold when he was splashed with boiling oil.

Terribly in pain with almost his whole bodyscalded, Napoleon had wandered around some restaurants in Kepong whimpering inpain when he was spotted by a Good Samaritan.

The man took the puppy and handed it over to MDDB.

That was four months ago and Napoleon is nowhealed and well after two surgeries.

Although he has gone through much pain, Napoleonis a happy puppy who likes the company of people.

Napoleon is currently one of the puppies that MDDBis urgently looking for a home.

MDDB supporter, popular television and radiopersonality Angel Wong Chui Ling, is one of those fervently hoping thatNapoleon will find a good home soon.

“He has been through so much and he deserves agood home.

“Hopefully he’ll find a home with a family thatwill love him and enjoy his cute antics,’’ said Wong.

“Those whowant to give Napoleon a home, please go to Klang and adopt him this Sunday,’’said Wong.

Wong who has been supporting MDDB since its firstadoption drive almost three years ago had recently attended the rescue group’sadoption drive in Bandar Kinrara 5 recently.

Many people had come to meet her as well as adoptdogs and puppies from MDDB.

Being a diehard dog lover, Wong said she would doanything within her ability to help destitute dogs find loving homes.

“They deserve all the help they need. Please helpby going to the MDDB adoption drive this Sunday,’’ said Wong.

Meanwhile, MDDB adoprion coordinator Christine Laisaid MDDB was also in dire need of funds to pay its veterinary bills which hascome up to almost RM100,000 to date.

“Besidesthe usual spaying and neutering, we also handle medical cases and this hasreally pushed up our veterinary bills,’’ said Lai, adding that donationsreceived have become insufficient to meet monthly expenses.

Inaddition to the veterinary bills, MDDB also needs RM600 for the rental of itshalf-way home in Klang, RM200 for electricity and RM150 for water every month,said Lai.

Thosewanting to donate in kind to MDDB such as canned and dry dog and cat food,shampoo and rice can drop them off at the adoption drive.
