Puppy Diaries

Some time last week, at around mid-day, I left my house to go and grab some lunch. As I was walking out of my gate, I noticed some movement under my car. Upon investigation, I found two puppies about two months under the car’s carriage. Well, I must say I was shocked to find these two puppies and instantly, I wondered how they came about to be under my car. I couldn’t, for the life of me, imagine why people would do such a cruel thing, dumping baby animals just like that.

I didn’t want the puppies to be killed or die of starvation, which would very likely happen if I left them out on the street. So I set about trying to coax them from underneath my car. As a cat owner, I only had cat biscuits in my house. I bashed those up and sprinkled them on the ground. Once they came within my reach, I grabbed them and brought them into my home. My initial concern about the cat biscuits were unfounded – the puppies were so hungry, they did not mind eating cat biscuits.

Once they were in my home, I got a better look at them. Both were females, and very round and cuddly. One was brown in colour with a black snout, and another one was predominantly white. One of them also looked a bit depressed and scared, so I decided to bring both of them to the vet for a check-up. One of my kittens accompanied the two pups, who were dewormed and vaccinated. I took the opportunity to buy new bowls for the puppies, as well as canned dog food, dog biscuits and shampoo in case the adoption of the puppies required more time.

The puppies were put in the bathroom once we had arrived home. They were not amused at all and began to cry quite a bit. After soothing them a little, I left them with sufficient food and water whilst I headed to work where I spent a large part of my day let people know I had two puppies for adoption.

I did not have to wait for long for a willing adopter. The following morning, I received a call from Elize who runs Wow Wow Pets in OUG, Kuala Lumpur. Elize said that one of her customers was willing to take both of the puppies. Knowing Elize’s strict rules on who qualifies to buy puppies from her, needless to say I felt safe with her assurance that this customer would treat the puppies well. So I proceeded with the two young ones to Elize’s shop, where they went off to live in a nice new home with a lovely owner…and that’s my adventure of rescuing the two puppies!

As much as I would love to take in all of the neglected and abandoned animals of the world, I just don’t have the physical space for all of them…so help us to establish a safe and loving home for all neglected animals, to create a refuge to house the abused and unloved beings of this world who cannot tell us they are suffering. We are currently looking for a 20 to 30 acre piece of land no more than 40 minutes drive away from Kuala Lumpur. We are also seeking people skilled in animal care to join us in making this place a haven for animals.

Imagine a place where animals can roam free, and able to live their lives out as they wish, never having to worry about food, shelter, warmth and love…
