MANY say dogs are men’s best friend due to their loyalty and the love they show to their owners.
With this in mind, canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) is starting the year by having three adoption drives in January.
The first leg starts at Kota Alam Shah assemblyman M. Manoharan’s service center in Klang followed by another adoption drive at MDDB’s regular spot in Summit Subang Jaya.
The consecutive drive would be held at Jaya One in Petaling Jaya, said adoption coordinator Christine Lai.
She said there were too many dogs in need of homes.
Among the dogs featured in MDDB’s January adoption drives are Carli, Lulu. Beauty and Queen.
“All four dogs have been vaccinated, dewormed and neutered,’’ said Lai.
Carli was rescued with her sister Carla in Kapar, whilst Pretty was found near the Klang Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital.
“Lulu had followed a MDDB member home and Queen had been with us for the last year and a half,’’ said Lai.
She said Queen had been born to a mother that was only six to seven months old and had various complications while she was a pup.
“She was really sick and had skin problems but she has healed and is ready for a human family,’’ she added.
Lai said those wanting to make donations to MDDB and its feline welfare counterpart Malaysian Cats Care Project (MCCP) can also drop off items at the venue.
“We need dry and canned dog, and puppy food, dry and canned cat and kitten food, old newspapers, dog and cat shampoo, old towels, rice, cages, detergent and bleach,’’ she said.
