Pong Pong still not able to find a home
Pongo “Pong Pong” Poppy Pi is the eldest in a litter of 13 puppies that were rescued near a block of apartments in Klang almost five months ago.
The rest of the litter have found homes except for Pong Pong.
“She’s pretty and intelligent, but Pong Pong has had no luck at the adoption drives,’’ said canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) adoption co-ordinator Christine Lai.
Pong Pong is among the many dogs and puppies up for adoption at the MDDB adoption drive this Sunday, Aug 18 at Jaya One, Jalan 13/6, Petaling Jaya, Selan-gor.
It will be held from 11am to 6pm near Old Town Coffee and 7-Eleven.
Lai said another puppy up for adoption was nine-month-old Plain Jane.
Just like Pong Pong, she has not been lucky enough to find a family to go home with.
“Plain Jane is very quite and does not attract any attention. She does not get up to mischievous antics like the other pups, and so goes unnoticed,’’ said Lai.
Both have been vaccinated and Plain Jane has been neutered.
Lai said MDDB was currently in urgent need of dog biscuits to feed the many mother dogs that they had placed at a farm in Pahang.
“We need to stock-up for at least three months so that the dogs will not go hungry. We currently have supply for only a month or less,’’ she added.
Those who want to contribute dog biscuits can drop them off at the adoption drive.
Lai also said online voucher platform StreetDeal Kuala Lumpur has initiated a month-long drive to collect funds for MDDB.
“This money will go towards paying for logistics like rental, transportation and workers’ allowance as the donations we receive are used to pay the veterinarian’s bills,’’ said Lai.
She said people can buy as many gift vouchers as they want and the collected amount will be handed over to MDDB when the deal ends on Sept 12.
“Each voucher costs RM10 and people can state how many vouchers they would like to purchase when making the transaction,’’ said Lai.
