I'm Beth The Fabulous

"I'm Beth the Fabulous, one of the dogs here at Noah's Ark and this is my story. I had my right hind leg injured while i was with my previous owner. I'm not sure how it happens, but i do know that i was at the vet for a surgery to have my leg fixed. Next thing i knew, i was send to an animal shelter because in my owner's eyes, i'm no longer the "perfect" dog he once had.

Anyway, I made new friends at the shelter but none of them lasted because one by one they were adopted. After two and a half years at the shelter, i found out that no one was keen to adopt me.


Finally, i was taken out from the shelter and had a four hours drive to an amazing sanctuary called Noah's Ark Natural Animal Sanctuary (NANAS) that is based in Johor. Now i can relax, take it easy and enjoy doing the things i do best and that is, waking up every morning by having a good splash into the pond and feel peace, love and understanding with Mother Nature.

So that's my story. It started out a bit sad but thanks to the wonderful people like YOU who support NANAS. I'm truly blessed. "

Melody - the durian loving horse

Yes. She loves durian.

During durian season, whenever she hears a thud on the ground, she would gallop as fast as she could to the fallen fruit before anyone else could. No wonder the workers at NANAS would complain that Melody always gets the best durian.

Now, how does a horse eat the thorny durian? According to Mr Raymond Wee, Melody would smash open the tough thorny shell with her front hoof. Once the durian is cracked, Melody would take her time to saviour the fleshy creamy pulp like any durian loving human does.

We are not sure how Melody got her taste for durian but we bet she is very happy living in NANAS with four other rescued horses like her. She was saved from being slaughtered and fed to the animals at the zoo.

Her stable opens up to a field with some durian trees. She gets to roam freely among the other inhabitants of NANAS. Occasionally she and the other horses get chased by some playful dogs giving them some needed workout. Heheh!

Say hello to Melody at the stable when you visit NANAS.
