Pet Adoption

Ok, I received an email about the coming RAVE2SAVE fund raising programme by Kollege Damansara Utama (KDU) in Petaling Jaya on the 25th. July.

My heartiest appreciation to KDU for organising such event to help save and support rescued pets.

Yes, even though it was clearly stated that all proceeds would go to a big ORG in Ampang, a mis-communication took place. They have also invited another pet rescue group to take part which this group fully agreed to bring along 50 rescued puppies and to be given free to good homes.
Free, it would mean getting it free of charge after taking all necessary particulars and promise that the pup would get good care, food and plenty of love.
The big ORG is not giving any pups or rescued dogs free. One must pay for a rescued animal!

Why is that so?

Go to Malaysian Dogs Deserves Better. website to see their reasoning.

Niamahfulat! (again) Do any of us really know the realities of our today's economic situation?

With so much going on, such as the H1N1 flu, forth coming increase of household electricity, increased bus and taxi fares, food prices....etc, many would now be very sensitive about spending.
Mentally, an average family also have to worry about security and the current political on goings which is the main concern of trying to be 'sane' everyday.

I must admit that the last thing on people mind nowadays, is charity and doing good.

I was told off, just two days ago that many are very concerned about their daily survival and this family gave me a good ticking off about saving strays, be it dogs or cats. So where do these poor animals go to? Monetary support from the public are getting scare.

Just why can't this big ORG accepts the 50 rescued pups and work hand-in-hand with other rescue groups who eventually share the same good line of thought? There are also plenty more
where-it-came-from, as estimates of stray animals runs into thousands?

By the way, Dr Chan Kah Yein's Inti College programme came off beautifully because young adults are being taught to love all animals. We need to start them young to solve the problems of strays. Importantly, they should not be told (politically) where not to get/buy rescued pets.
By doing so, it look like the big ORG is already teaching these young adults the fundamental of politics!!!!

This was how the problem of strays happened in the first place!

Really Fulat!

hello Donald,
i have just responded to MDDB blog but i will copy&paste my comment here ah ..

' Some of the comments left here are actually very disturbing to read. Just like Chan's & Snoopy's, you guys are sick. But this is our society now, so what to do right.

I agree with RO, would it be possible to write a formal/open letter to ORG. Actually i think there are surely some genuine people in ORG who loves animals as we do, be it their volunteers or sponsors. Just that alot of their operations are mishandled by the management team/ pr people. For what, i don't faham also. You say reputation, it has already been tarnished after these series of events.

In general we still very far behind from having a first class world's mindset (see Chan & Snoopy as example), i guess this fight for publicity even for strays will go on. Dear Sharmini, you are doing great & you have our support. '

I force myself to be more positive nowadays, i really hope ORG can stop these dramas & make peace with everyone. Also i wondered if they have an annual committee election. Buoy, i am so sure chairwoman will be elected OFF for all their bad publicity this year. Even if she is not tha mastermind, she cannot stop the situation from spiralling from bad to worse.
