Dog adoption drive in Klang this time

Canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) recently received a distress call about a badly injured dog in Setapak.

An MDDB volunteer immediately rushed to the scene to rescue the dog.

“The sight that greeted her made her cry,’’ said MDDB general manager Derene Lee.

The mother dog was unable to move and it was obvious she was dying but she still managed to wag her tail feebly when she saw the volunteer, Belinda Chew.

Lee said the mother’s four puppies had surrounded the dog and were whining and licking her face.

The dog, which Chew named Metta, was rushed to an animal hospital for treatment but died the following morning of cardiac arrest.

“Belinda managed to rescue the puppies that are about four months old and we need to urgently rehome them,’’ said Lee.

Lee added that an additional adoption drive would be held tomorrow at newly opened Thomas Pet Corner located at No 9, Jalan Menpelam, Taman Gembira, Klang.

The adoption drive will be held between 11am and 5pm.

“We have far too many puppies with us at the moment.

“If we don’t rehome them now, they will soon grow into dogs and we do not have enough space for them,’’ said Lee.

Lee added the last adoption drive in Klang was held many months ago.

“Many Klang residents have told us that our adoption locations in Subang Jaya and Petaling Jaya were too far, so we decided to have one in Klang,’’ she added.

Those wanting to donate in cash and kind to MDDB can also drop off their contribution at the adoption drive.
