MALAYSIAN DOGS DESERVE BETTER (MDDB) will be having an adoption drive in Klang on Sunday March 27. This time around Kota Alam Shah assemblyman M. Manoharan has generoulsy offered to host the adoption drive at his service center. More than 15 puppies and 10 adult dogs - which have all been spayed - will be up for adoption at the event. Please pass this around as some of the dogs have been with us for months. Herewith the press release:
REALISING that there are far too many dogs and puppies looking for a home, DAP’s Kota Alam Shah assemblyman M. Manoharan has stepped in once again to help canine welfare project Malaysia Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) to hold its adoption drive.
The drive held at his service centre from 11.00am to 6.00 pm on Sunday, March 27 will see about 10 dogs and 15 puppies that are in urgent need of adoption.
Manoharan’s service centre is at No 7A, Persiaran Raja Muda Musa, Klang and is located between the Klang traffic police contingent headquarters and Hin Hua High School.
The assemblyman says he will continue helping MDDB with its adoption drives in Klang because he understand the problem the organisation is facing.
“I know that there are too many puppies and dogs that are homeless and I appreciate MDDB’s efforts in finding them homes,’’ he said.
Manoharan urged members of the public to adopt rather than buy pets because this would give homes to the unfortunate puppies and dogs.
Meanwhile, MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai thanked Manoharan for his generosity and said she hoped more elected representatives would come forward to help with adoption drives.
“So far Manoharan, Klang MP Charles Santiago and Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng have helped us hold our adoption drives,’’ said Lai.
Lai added those wanting to make donations to MDDB and its feline welfare counterpart Malaysian Cats Care Project (MCCP) can also drop off the dog or cat food, old towels, old newspapers and dog and cat shampoo at the venue.

This was sent to us by our friend Kar Ven and we feel that this is a very good add which captures the plight of strays beautifully. The message is very clear - the more puppies and dogs are bought from pet shops and breeders - the less the chance for mixed breed puppies and dogs to survive. The breeding will only stop when the buying does. In the Malaysian context, buying puppies and dogs will also keep the illegal breeders in business and a large number of the puppies sold by them do not even make it through the second month. PLEASE adopt instead of buying. And it also gives canine bounty hunters to make loads of money with their dog catching mayhem.

This puppy was hit by a van near Puspakom. It just lay there because no one bothered nor had pity or compassion in their hearts to help the poor thing. Luckily, three days later it was spotted by someone who immediately rescued it and gave the puppy to us. It was admitted in one of our panel clinics about a week ago and had been unconscious until today - when it regained consciousness and started eating. But the puppy is still lying down and we hope that it is not paralysed. We are hoping for the best and looking for sponsorship for this puppy as it's going to be a long haul. those wanting to sponsor the puppy can either deal directly or go through us - those who want to deal direct with the clinic can write to for clinic details. Let's all hope for the best that this puppy will recover soon.


Maya. miserable and in pain on the day of her rescue.
Maya now - pretty, happy and sometimes action.
Maya in one of her action moods.
This is Maya and she was among our first batch of dogs and puppies rescued from the DBKL pound in 2008. Maya was seriously injured as the dogcatchers are believed to have looped her right front limb and pulled - resulting in severe nerve damage. She was miserable with the useless limb slowing her down considerably. We then decided to amputate Maya's useless limb and she cheered=up considerably after that. May who is since been adopted by Ruth Hammond is now a happy and gregarious young dog......sometimes a little action also. We are happy that's its worked out so well for Maya who was rescued ferom the pound in time before she was put down.

Words simply cannot describe our feelings whenever we follow-up on the development of Cinderella renamed Faith who has been adopted by Kalpana. Cinderella was spotted by Dr Chan Kah Yein of Animalcare when she rescued almost 40 dogs from the dastardly Klang Pound. However, she couldn't take Cinderella because the poor girl had a serious facial injury. But Cinderella wanted to to be rescued. We heard about her and decided to take her. Dr Chan immediately went to the pound and got Cinderella out. We warded her at one of our panel vets where she was given treatment and subsequently adopted by Kalpana. Its happy endings such this that keeps us going.


We are happy to update our readers about Lester who is now happily living with Datin Jeniffer Khoo and her family. Lester became a stray after his adopters abandoned him near the Petaling Jaya Old Town market. Luckily, he had Ah Moi, who manned a stall there, feeding him. He had been on the streets several years when some jerk poured hot oil all over him. Lester was missing for about two days but went in search of Ah Moi after that. We heard about him and took Lester under our care and did the necessary. May people had told us that we should put Lester to sleep because of the gravity of his injuries. We refused because we staunchly abide by our no-kill policy. We were also encouraged to go all out to help Lester becuase he had a strong will to survive. We have been duly rewarded for that as Lester is leading a happy life now.
