PETALING JAYA: With almost 40 homeless puppies in their hands, a canine welfare organisation is trying everything possible to find them homes.
Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) adoption coordinator Christine Lai said the group has been promoting the puppies extensively over social media.
"We have been posting all their photographs and the response has been good," said MDDB adoption coordinator Christine Lai.
She added that the puppies will be brought to the entrance of The Square, Jaya One in Petaling Jaya on Sunday (Oct 4) in an adoption drive from 11.00am to 6.00pm.
Lai said MDDB had to re-home the puppies immediately as there is no space in their sanctuary for 35 more dogs.
"They grow fast. And the ultimate goal is to find homes for every rescue before they are permanently placed at our sanctuary," said Lai.
She said the puppies were rescued from several locations around the Klang Valley after their mothers gave birth to them in public places and on the streets.
"The mothers are with us and will go and live at the sanctuary once they have been neutered and fully vaccinated," said Lai.
Lai also added MDDB was hoping to raise funds to meet its October commitments at the event, adding that the bills were overwhelming.
"We have unpaid rental, utility bills, volunteers allowances as well as food bills to pay in addition to escalating veterinary bills," said Lai.
She added that Baba Moi's home bakery will be selling a variety of cookies for human consumption at the adoption drive with all the proceeds going to MDDB.
"It is very generous of them and we hope they will sell out so that we will have the funds for expenses," said Lai.
She added MDDB will also be selling its merchandise.
