When Leslie when to Sungai Buloh to pick up some puppies, he spotted this cat which had a deep injury to its front paw. The wound had eaten up a big patch of skin and it was obvious that the cat was in terrible pain. So to cut a long story short - the cat is with us and is admitted at our panel clinic in Klang where the wound is being treated. Again, we would be grateful for help to see this poor fellow through his treatment.

Pregnant and injured

Employees of the animal quarantine center in Port Klang regularly call us when there are strays in need of help. The latest rescue was this pregnant dog that they have been feeding for a while. According to one of them, they found the dog injured and unable to move when they had come to work on Monday last week. They found the dog in a drain and believe had been sitting there unable to move and without food and water throughout the weekend. She was also very frightened and they think she must have been whacked on the back by some people in the area. It was difficult getting her into the car and subsequently into the clinic due to her fearful state. The vet had to muzzle her because she was aggressive when she saw the male clinic assistants. The worst part is that we cannot do much because of her pregnancy and according to the vet - there are many many puppies in her belly. She is admitted at the clinic and is being monitored to see if any of the puppies may have died inside. This is a very sad turn of events whereby there are people willing to even go to the extent of battering a pregnant dog. Just when we thought we had settled our back injury cases - Lucky and this lady, whom we have named Jenny, have come to us. Jenny is also going to be a long haul as the treatment will only start after she has given birth and lactated for a reasonable period of time. Please help us help Jenny.

LUCKY who was not so Lucky

A young lady called us more than a week ago saying that there were three puppies and their mother at the car park of her condo. One of the three puppies was unable to move as it appeared to have suffered a back injury and bruises to its back legs. She also told us that whenever the resideents fed them, the two healthy puppies would bring food over to be shared with their injured sibling. Leslie went to the location and got the puppies - one was adopted last week and another will be put up for adoption this weekend. The injured puppy has been admitted to our panel clinic and the vet says he would probably have to be there for a few months. We have named him Lucky and estimate that we would need about RM4,000 to cover his treatment, vaccinations, castration and boarding for an estimated period of three months. We believe that Lucky must have been either hit on his back with a blunt object or hit by a vehicle. We are still trying to get the mother to be TNRMed. We would be grateful for sponsorship towards Lucky's veterinary cost.

Sg Chua market in Kajang

Sharon Tan has been having sleepless nights after someone alerted her about the strays at the Sg Chua market in Kajang. She lives in Bangsar but has been going o Kajang almost daily to feed the dogs and to rescue those in need of help. Apparently, it is a dumping ground where the irresponsible come to dump their unwanted dogs and puppies. She had actually found a box with several puppies that had apparently been dumped there just moments before her arrival there during one of her trips. Sharon has since rescued many puppies and a mother and her litter. We have assured her some sponsorship as well as to help her get her rescued puppies adopted. Given that the market has many strays - we have suggested to Sharon that she implements the TNRM exercise there through us there. She has spoken to stallholders who are feeding the dogs and we will be dialoguing with the Kajang Municipal council on our TNRM plan at the market. We believe this is the way forward as the time is nearing whereby rescue groups are going to find themselves in a fix due to the lack of adopters. Under such circumstances - the best option would be to stop puppies from being born at all cost. So friends spay neuter all your pets as well as all the dogs you have rescued prior to rehoming them. This bis the only way. Those who want to initiate TNRM in your neighbourhoods or other areas - please contact us.

Our friends from KL Pooch Rescue spotted Beyonce at a shelter and noticed the bad shape she was in. There was also an air of despondency around her. When we saw her picture - our hearts simply broke and we wanted to so badly help this poor dog that had been caught and sent to the shelter by local council dog catchers. When she was first brought to our panel vet - she had a badly infected eye that was going soft. She was also very withdrawn and frightened of her own shadow. But today, Beyonce is like another dog altogether. Her infected eye has been removed and she is healing well - and Beyonce has become one happy dog. We suppose this is because she is feeling a sense of security and confidence now. Beyonce is reflective of the fact that all dogs deserve a second chance to live out their natural lives. She is currently at the vet and will be there until the stitches to her eyes are removed. Beyonce is up for adoption or fostering. We would also be grateful for sponsorship of her veterinary bills.


The injury on the day of the accident

Remember the puppy that was run don by some students a couple of months ago?

Well, the fellow is doing fine and is currently undergoing treatment for slight mange. He has also received his second vaccination and would be ready for adoption in a week or two. His badly smashed paw has healed well and there is only slight deformation. We would be grateful for adoption, fostering or sponsorship of this chap's veterinary bill. He is still at the clinic and we are hoping to discharge him in time for our Summit adoption next month. We have named him Sean.



We are currently in the process of expanding our TNRM programme and this time around we are neutering dogs that are fed by Rawang residents Umairah and her husband Kapt Anuar Musa. Both of them and another friend brought two females to one of our panel clinics for neutering today. We have told them to start off with the females and hope to complete the batch of 40 within the next five to six months. The ears of the neutered dogs will also be notched to indicate that they have been TNRMed. It is crucial to neuter both strays and pets because it is the only way to counter the stray population. As a rescue group, we know how difficult it is to rehome dogs after they have passed the six-month mark. Please support us in our efforts by participating in the exercise to neuter and care for strays in your neighbourhood. Those interested in sponsoring the neutering of strays can also do so by contacting us.
