Please help Teresa raise the rest of the funds required for Benji's recovery.


We have just received an appeal for help from Teresa Chian for Benji, a dog that she rescued recently. This is a genuine call for assistance, and we would appreciate it if all of you can help chip in, even if it's only RM10 or RM20. Every little helps.

Please take a moment to read Benji's plight and help Teresa raise funds for his medical treatment. 

On July 1st, Sunday, a beige dog was found crying and dragging his hind legs across the back alley of our neighbourhood in Old Klang Road. He seemed confused with his current condition and tries to run with his pack but could not keep up. A few neighbours spotted, cornered and rescued him.

We named him Benji and he was sent to Dr Goh Kim Siang in Bandar Kinrara, Puchong. After getting an X-Ray, we found out that his hind legs are paralysed (deep pain) due to spinal injuiry (fracture) and nerve damage. 

Dr. Goh suspected that he got ran over by a vehicle, either car or motorbike. Benji has a good chance of recovery due to his young age and natural 'fighting spirit' from being a street dog.. He is recuperating well under the Vet's supervision. After the first month, Benji will undergo acupuncture and physiotherapy treatments. After the second month, we hope Benji will be strong enough to take his first step to learn to walk again. 

So far, Benji has good appetite and is good natured. He is able to defecate on his own although he cannot always control his bladder and need help with emptying his bladder on a daily basis. Once he has recovered and is able to be fully mobile again, I hope to find him a loving home.

Due to the escalating costs of caring for a dog with special needs, I would like to appeal to you for financial assistance. Benji needs to raise an estimated amount of RM2,000++ for 8 weeks of boarding, treatment, acupuncture and physiotherapy. 

Updates on Benji will be posted whenever possible on the Help Benji page.
