PETALING JAYA: What was supposed to be a celebration of joy and sharing turned into tragedy when flash floods inundated an animal shelter in Kajang Saturday afternoon, drowning many rescued dogs - just when its staff was holding its Christmas party.

The rented premises of the Malaysia Independent Animal Rescue (MIAR) shelter, located about six metres from the banks of Sungai Kantan in Kajang, was flooded when the river overflowed due to heavy rain Saturday, drowning some of the rescued dogs, which were in cages.
