YEAR OF THE DOG GREETED

 

Twelve years ago, our adoption rate for dogs soared to almost 200. Two interviews were held with members of the Chinese Press and a question was posed as to why it was so. The very simple reason is that it is the Year of the Dog and some would say my 'Feng Shui Master' advises me so that I need to keep a dog. Another question was asked, how many were returned? Unfortunately, we have not done any statistics on that. Perhaps, we should from this year on. We hear of many happily visiting pet shops. Don't forget! Please do visit the many waiting at shelters too.

We envisaged adoption of animals may not be as vibrant this year, as we receive more calls of animals being unwanted/abandoned or found lost, thus ending up as strays.

CAT "HONEY" FOUND DRIFTING AT SEA OFF TANJUNG BUNGAH AND RESCUED
Who would have believed Honey was rescued from the sea? This is something extraordinary.

Honey is as sweet as her name! And she is so lucky to be alive. A woman was out sailing on the ocean off Tanjung Bungah when she spotted Honey floating on a board, clinging to it for dear life. No one knows how the beautiful kitty ended up there in the middle of the sea, all by herself. The second Honey was rescued, she purred and nuzzled her rescuer - she was so grateful to be saved! Now you have the chance to save her again by adopting Honey. She's a gentle, kind kitty who will sweeten your life if you adopt her. She loves to purr and be cuddled. She'll bring so much happiness and love into your home. We have arranged for her vaccination shots and her spaying will be done soon.

 

ADOPTION HIGHLIGHTS
In February, we had six adoptions which comprised four dogs and two cats. Kindly spread the word around to encourage pet owners to adopt animals from shelters which are badly in need of good loving homes. When one commits, a life is saved.
