Neutering/Spaying Session 2

Few days ago, Dr. Lim and Dr Puspa of SPCA Selangor came to our shelter in Hulu Langat and helped to neuter/spay 13 dogs and 1 cat. It took them whole morning to perform the surgery.

Out of the 13 dogs, 7 belong to SCAS. 2 dogs were stray that we caught along the way to the shelter, 6 dogs belong to Kim Ho who is a rescuer. While the female cat belongs to a volunteer. 

This is a not a free program, we pay RM150 for a female and RM120 for a male dog. A female cat costs RM90 and male cat is RM70.

The total cost of the neutering came up to RM1700. We are now appealing to public to help fund this program. Neutering is important to stop them from multiplying. Many strays suffer hunger, abuse and sickness. 

Please be kind enough to help them. We will organize more of this type of neutering program to help reduce the stray population in Hulu Langat. 

Finally, we would like to post a shout out on one of our frequently used slogans "Please Adopt, Don't Buy & Neuter, Don't Multiply!"

SPCA has arrived!

Out they came for our "Paus" but we could not catch this one, she was very alert and could sense that something was not right.

Neutering/Spaying Session 1

On 6th December, we sent our sheltered dogs to SPCA Selangor to be spayed/castrated. A total of 11 dogs (6 females and 5 males) have been desexed. Thanks to Dr. Lim and Dr. Puspa who performed the surgery. We were paying RM150 for females and RM120 for males, total charge came up to RM1500. 

We also scheduled another mass neutering on 10 more dogs and 4 cats, some of them are strays from Hulu Langat. It was done on 11th December at our shelter (photos to follow in next blog post).

This means we would need another RM1800 for the surgery. The total neutering cost is now RM3,300. 

We would like to appeal for some contributions from the public. For a shelter with 300+ dogs, we really need all the help we can get to carry on our works.

Goodbye ...Big Black

One of our long staying dogs in shelter -  Big Black was not doing well due to severe kidney failure. We were advised to let him go to set him free from suffering. It was definitely a tough decision but we couldn't bear to see him suffer longer...

May you rest in peace Big Black. We will miss you, yes we will. Run free now towards Rainbow Bridge where we believe all furkids find eternal joy, health and love.
Big Black was wagging his tail upon seeing us at the clinic....not knowing that this would be the last visit.......

We love you always Big Black. 

Bidding our Final Goodbyes to Big Black before we let him may be gone but you are eternally cherished in our hearts

Some latest photos of Hero

Hero was abandoned at a bus stop when he was just 4 days old and was taken care of by one of our volunteers. He was adopted in May 2011. However, his adopter now has a posting overseas for 5 years and nobody is able to take care of Hero. Hence, Hero is now back at the shelter. His adopter, Ivan is now sponsoring his monthly food expenses. 

Recently Ivan has requested to have some photo updates of Hero, so we decided to share them here too. Hero is basically a playful, active and fun loving furkid. He enjoys life at shelter with so many friends around. 

Hero, when your daddy is back, he will take you home. Meanwhile, have fun at the shelter!

Updates on Karina

After one week of treatment at the clinic, Karina's stomach has shrunk in size. Now she is being fostered and still needs daily jabs. 

Having said that, she is much "lighter" now and can move with ease rather than carrying a heavy body around. Her appetite is very good and enjoys chicken rice very much. 

She has also been given the second jab for mange (skin problem).

Updates on Karina

Karina's heart scan result shows righted weak heart which causes bloated stomach (on top of the low protein factor). 

Three days in the cage at the vet's depressed her a bit.......

On Saturday (18th Oct),  Karina vomited half an hour after her medication, and the fluid that was drawn out had some blood, the vet managed to draw out 30ml of the fluid and continued to do so on Sunday
We brought her rice with chicken and it is nice to see her having such good appetite, she finished all the rice! 

Rest well, Karina.

Below are the vet bills stating treatment cost for Karina. We would like to say a big Thank You to Michelle for offering to sponsor Karina and Grace Chang for covering Karina's vet bills!
