Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.-- James A. Froude (1818-1894)

The dogs are SAVED!

I was having a heavy heart knowing the 15 Dec deadline (literally- dead-line!) for the Klang dogs was approaching. if no one, claims them, they all will be destroyed (such a cruel sounding word!).

But SPCA sent the following update :

Animal rescuers and pet owners alike have claimed 60 dogs from the Majlis Perbandaran Klang pound in the last one week - thanks to the extensive coverage in Sin Chew Jit Poh, New Straits Times, Malaysia Today, blogs and Facebook.

Animal rescue group Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better rescued 12 puppies from the pound, while animal protection group AnimalCare rescued 36 adult dogs and are temporarily boarding them at the Lotus Life Liberation Park (LLLP).

Pet owners from Klang also came to claim 10 of their dogs.

SPCA Selangor applauds the efforts and dedication of the rescuers - to assist them under their MissionHELP program, 2 of their vets will be making a trip to the LLLP, Bentong on Monday, 18 Dec 09 to provide medical check-ups for the 36 dogs, vaccinations, and treatment for ticks and skin problems.

In January, their Klinik Kembiri team will be carrying out a spay/ neuter program for the Klang dogs. All the dogs (including the earlier dogs from Pulau Ketam) will also need tick-collars to keep ticks and fleas at bay, as it could otherwise be a difficult problem to manage with a large colony of dogs roaming on the vast grounds.
