Hi Sharmini, today I've just witness a very disturbing way of killing dogs by MPSP. While i was walking my dog through the park i heard dogs barking and sounded like they are in pain so i quickly ran towards to the place to have a look. I saw the local council officers (MPSP) trying to catch all the dogs by using a rope and by the time when i reached there, i saw a dog already down a the tar road, was pressed down and suffocate to death by a rope for a couple of minutes (pulled tightly by the guy) so my parents confronted them and basically ask them is this they way the kill a dog?? and they look at my dad and hesitated then they grab a syringe with the needle on and injected the dog straight on her heart(i even saw the blood spurge out back into the syringe) , i know the poor dog since she was a pup, all i can say is she cause no harm to anyone and just gave birth to 8 pups 2 days ago so she was weak and not able to run fast. Believe it or not they will do anything just to get all the dogs. Even some locals and my parents told me that they didnt even bother to shoot or inject all the dogs including the pups when they caught the dogs. They simply suffocate them with a rope or wrap all the pups(alive) in a plastic bag. So i really really hope that you can do something about it (because this is a very inhumane way to kill dogs) or even raise your voice to people that are in charge about this or maybe give me some direction about what to do? i really want to make a difference. I even spent most of my money in buying license for the dogs just so they wont get caught by the MPSP. I got all 8 pups safe with me now since they wont be able to survive by themselve.

Please everyone do something about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Canines in desperate need of homes

CANINE welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) is urging animal lovers to start off the Year of the Rabbit by giving a puppy or dog a second chance in life.
“We have so many rescued dogs and puppies in desperate need of homes and we hope that people will come forward to take them in,’’ said MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai.
Lai said MDDB also had several lost dogs that were yet to be claimed by their owners.
One such dog is Shaggy that was rescued by MDDB volunteers in Taman Tun Dr Ismail about two months ago.
“Shaggy’s picture as well as the location the dog was rescued has long been uploaded on our blog and Facebook page but no one has come forward,’’ said Lai.
Shaggy will be among the dogs that will be put up for adoption this Saturday and Sunday.
MDDB will have its adoption drive on Saturday, from 12.00pm to 7.30pm, at Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng’s service center at No 22A Jalan Jambu Mawar off Jalan Kuching, Taman City, Kuala Lumpur.
“Those wanting to seek directions to the service center can call 03-6252 0234,’’ said Lai.
MDDB’s Sunday adoption drive will be held at the Summit, Subang Jaya’s main entrance from 11.30am to 7.30pm.
Besides Shaggy, MDDB is also looking forward to finding homes for several adult dogs and some 20 puppies.
“We need to urgently find them homes as only then can we take in more rescues,’’ said Lai.
Lai also said MDDB was in dire need of dry and canned dog and puppy food as well as dry and canned cat and kitten food.
“We are running very low on cat and dog food and our supplies will last us barely a week,’’ she added.
Those wanting to donate food as well as pet shampoo and other necessities can drop them off at the adoption drives.
Details visit or the Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better page on Facebook or call 019-3576477, 012-3739007.

Expedite probe into poodle abuse, dept urged

PETALING JAYA: A Selangor-based canine welfare project wants the Department of Veterinary Services to expedite its investigations into the alleged abuse of a toy poodle which made headlines recently.
Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) coordinator Christine Lai said the public was getting impatient with the delay.
“We have received countless queries from the public who want to know if investigations are really being carried out,” said Lai.
People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (Peta) Asia-Pacific chapter has collected information and given it to the department and police for quick action, she added.
Lai said the incident had put the state of animal welfare in the country in a bad light.
Independent rescuer Ruth Chow said the department should not delay any longer.
MDDB volunteers and supporters had lodged 15 police reports at the Petaling Jaya district police headquarters on Jan 26.

Cops unable to identify man in dog abuse video

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have reached a dead end in their investigations into the man who was caught on tape using brute force on a poodle
Federal CID director Comm Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin said they were not able to identify the man in the video.
He added that unless police received new leads or tip-off from the public, they might not be able to identify the man.
The Bukit Aman CID was tasked to investigate the case.
A video of the man abusing the dog raised the ire of canine lovers who began a nationwide hunt to identify him.
In the widely-circulated video, the unidentified man, believed to be a Malaysian, is seen using brutal force on a poodle to get the dog to stand up on its hind legs.
The Facebook user who uploaded the 15-minute video said she had discovered it in a thumbdrive which she had found in a Kuala Lumpur shopping mall.
