TVT DOG and puppies

This stray mum that has TVT and seven pups is being fed by an elderly man. When he noticed that she had TVT, he wanted to call the local council asking them to take her away. Luckily, Ashley managed to coax him not to. We have promised to treat and spay her before releasing her back at where she is now so that the elderly man can continue feeding her. We wish there is a better place where we can send her but reality dictates that there is little hope for mother dogs to be adopted. We have also given our word to rehome her puppies. Arrangements have been made for Ashley to take the mother dog to one of our panel vets for treatment. Anyone interested in adopting the puppies, please call 019-3576477.


WE received notification several days ago that there were three puppies at a school in Taman Tun and the school authorities had given up to noon to get them. We announced this on FB asking for help and Tasha went there and managed to rescue one pup. Kimberley and her husband went next and successfully rescued the other two which is currently boarded at the veterinary clinic. We now need to take them out of there and find them temporary foster homes pending adoption. We would be very grateful if someone can come forward and provide these unfortunate puppies a temporary home. CAll 019-3576477.


It was a horrible day today with several cases of dogs in distress. We received our first call at about 7.50 am today from a grocery store owner who said that a young dog that lingered around her area in Setapak was knocked down by a car. She said the dog was howling in pain and asked if we could collect it. We advised her to take the dog to the nearest veterinary clinic where it can be first treated and collected by us later in the day. When w called about half-an-hour later, the lady said she had secured the dog and called a shelter to take it in. We told her that the dog would probably be put to sleep because if its injuries. She immediately took it to the veterinary clinic where the the dog was given the necessary treatment (the vet said it suffered from soft tissue injury) before taking it to her shop. Thanks Lasheni for picking-up the dog from the sundry shop. The dog will be fostered by Koo for the night after which we have to look for a place for it to recuperate.


The second call later in the day was about a little puppy which was also knocked down by a car at Bandar Sg Long. Joanne rushed the puppy to the vet and was told that it had a pelvic fracture. Luckily as its still a puppy, no surgery was required as the fracture will heal itself. We have also asked Joanne to foster the puppy for us for a week or tow because we are simply swamped.


Anyone willing to foster the Setapak dog, please call 019-3576477. Will be greatly appreciated.

Finally he is relieved and happy, looking-up at his rescuer and feeling grateful. We won't let you down Blackie Boy - you can count on us.

Tumour - ruptured and ulcerated.

Please help us help Blackie.

Yesterday while we were busy at our adoption drive we received a call from a young lady asking if we could come and rescue a dog from her housing estate in Klang. The male dog apparently had a tumour on its side which had ruptured. Its back legs were also weak and we figured this could be because the dog was physically weak. Not able to leave the adoption drive, we asked her to help us send the dog to one of our panel clinics. She agreed and the dog was taken to the clinic where the vet confirmed that it is a tumour. Blackie will soon be scheduled for surgery and we are keeping our fingers crossed that the tumour will be benign. There is so much of pain and anguish one has to face when involved in canine rescue activities. We shudder to think the physical pain and torture Blackie would have undergone if not spotted by these kind people. Blackie is now under our custody and we will stand by him at his hour of need like we always do no matter how bad a situation a rescued dog is in. As usual we need your help to treat Blackie as we have to raise to cost of the surgery. DETAILS -

Our adoption drive at the Summit Subang Jaya went on fine although we had anticipated otherwise due to the Bersih rally a day earlier. We had also not made any announcements in the media and solely relied on blog, Facebook and email announcements. A big thank you to all our volunteers who gave their best to ensure that the adoption drive went on well. Terima Kasih.
