HAVING too many puppies and dogs in need of homes, canine welfare group Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) was in a quandary until Kota Alam asseblyman M. Manoharan stepped in to help.
Manoharan, who has helped MDDB on several occasions, has once again allowed the rescue group to use his service centre to have an adoption drive.
The adoption drive will be held at the entrance of the service centre, which is located at 7A, Persiaran Raja Muda Musa, Klang, from 10am to 5pm.
The service centre is located between the Klang traffic police station and Hin Hua High school.
MDDB supporter, popular television and radio personality Angel Wong Chui Ling, said it was kind of Manoharan to help MDDB.
“MDDB needs as much help it can get in order to rehome the many dogs and puppies it has under its care,’’ said Wong.
Wong is also hoping that a puppy that was scalded with hot oil named Napoleon will be adopted this Sunday.
“He has been through so much and he deserves a good home. Those who want to give Napoleon a home, please adopt him this Sunday,’’ said Wong.
Wong who has been supporting MDDB since its first adoption drive almost three years ago had attended the rescue group’s adoption drive in Bandar Kinrara 5 recently.
Meanwhile, MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai said MDDB was in dire need of funds to pay its veterinary bills which has come up to almost RM100,000 to date.
“Besides the usual spaying and neutering, we also handle medical cases and this has really pushed up our veterinary bills,’’ said Lai, adding that donations received have become insufficient to meet monthly expenses.
In addition to the veterinary bills, MDDB also needs RM600 for the rental of its half-way home in Klang, RM200 for electricity and RM150 for water every month, said Lai.
Those wanting 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.
