CANINE welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) strongly believes severely injured dogs must be given a chance to live instead of being put to sleep.
“Unless a dog is suffering from end-stage terminal cancer, we never euthanise our rescues,’’ said MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai.
Given this, the canine welfare group has almost 50 disabled dogs under its care at the moment.
“These dogs are popular with animal lovers due to their strength and tenacity in picking up their lives and mastering the art of coping with their disability.
“We always have people writing in and requesting that we bring our special dogs to our adoption drives.
“We are not able to do it all the time because of logistical problems but we will be bringing some of our special boys and girls to Jaya One this Sunday (tomorrow),’’ said Lai.
MDDB’s Happy, who suffered from severe facial injury and scaring, is on top of the most popular list.
Happy and her friends will be at the MDDB adoption drive at The School, Jaya One, Petaling Jaya from 11am to 6pm tomorrow.
About 10 puppies will be at the adoption drive together with the special dogs.
“Besides Happy, we will be bringing Rebecca who is paralysed and Prince whose back legs are disabled as well as one of our super senior dogs Rocky,’’ said Lai.
She added that MDDB was also running very low on kibbles and hoped that well-wishers would donate dog food.
“They can buy and drop off or cor get details of suppliers who can deliver the food to us,’’ said Lai.
She added MDDB has 165 dogs to feed and they were fed rice and kibbles alternately.
