Rosie: "What have I done wrong to deserve this treatment?"

On 18 March 2013, Rosie was abandoned in Johor, Malaysia with an open wound under her arm which could fit a golf ball and another wound on her elbow. In order for the wounds to heal, the vet had to stitch it.

The wound under Rosie's
 arm could fit a golf ball.
How did this happen to her? A small cut that became a big hole which was left untreated for days?  Could you feel the pain that she had to endure for so many days?  

What happened if it was you? What would you have done? Seek medical treatment off course.  But for a dog, the convenient way is to dispose it on the streets waiting for a kind soul to pick her up or either a slow death. 

People are treating dogs like garbage, when they are God’s creatures great and small - they should be treated with respect. 

When Rosie arrived at Noah’s Ark clinic, looking at her eyes, you could feel the pain and sadness in her.

The wound on her elbow
had to be stitched.

In her mind, she wonders “What have I done wrong to deserve this? Why did my owner throw me out off the house? Why me? When you had me, you found me cute and adorable, now you don’t want me anymore? Why? Tell me why?”

You could see in Rosie’s eyes that she has given up hope filled with hurt and sadness  – but there is hope at Noah’s Ark.  We are here to change that emotion on her and we want to see a happy dog again. We estimate Rosie to be about 3 years old.


Rosie requires dental
treatment when she recovers.
 Rosie is currently receiving medical treatment at our clinic.  Noah’s Ark has an equipped clinic that provides medical care for the many animals at the sanctuary.

We also provide low cost sterilization in Singapore, Johor and Muar for street cats and dogs, each month we sterilized close to 120 animals. Sterilization is the only solution to prevent unwanted kittens and puppies from entering into this world.

Would you like to be Rosie's God Ma?
If you can sign up for Noah's Ark Pet Sponsorship For S$50 a month
which will go towards her upkeep at the sanctuary.

Big Ben's Story

Hi! Its me, Big Ben.

I wanted to show you some photos of me when I first arrived at Noah's Ark.

Top left: See how miserable my face was, I was in so much pain and it was so difficult for me to pee - until Uncle Raymund found out that I was peeing blood. And the following day, Uncle Raymund took me to the vet to be examined and discovered that I had stones in my bladder and an operation was scheduled as soon as possible to have it removed.

Top right: That's me at a foster's house. The first day when someone found me at the car park under the hot sun. You can never imagine how someone so cruel and could do that to me right? Its so common among pet owners to give up their pets when it fall sick. Its cheaper to get another NEW dog than to provide medical care for an OLD dog that brought joy and was part of the family.

Bottom right: The picture was taken during my surgery. The vets were stunned to find so many stones in me. In the operating room, I could hear one stone after another stone piling up. Now you understand the discomfort I was going through all these months with my previous owner.

Bottom left: That is Happy Big Ben - see my smiley face?
I recovered well and the caregivers at Noah's Ark have been taking good care of me at the clinic.

I am slowly gaining weight and soon I will look like a model for Hush Puppies :)

Lots of love of licks.

Bassett Hound abanoned at a carpark

Hi, my name is Big Ben.
I recovered under the care of my caregiver, Raymund, and I am thankful he took me in and saved my life. Without him, I will not be running and playing with my friends at Noah's Ark.

I was abandoned at a car park in Malacca and my cruel owner expect me to find my way around. Just because she refused to have me treated for the stones in my bladder she conveniently dumped me on the streets.

I wonder how could she ever live with the guilt. Well, that's the past and we all have to move on. I was given a second chance and I am grateful for being alive today.

If you visit the sanctuary - remember to come and say hi to me.

Do you want to be my God Ma or God Pa and sponsor my stay at Noah's Ark for S$50 a month pls email to

I am looking forward to having a God Parent.

Lots of love and licks
Big Ben

No More Misery For These Dogs!

Acting on a complaint by an expatriate working in Johor Bahru, Noah's Ark team did a site visit and found out these dogs were living under appalling conditions.

They are being tied up with a short chain, too tied to be comfortable for the dogs, constricting the throat so much that one of the dog has difficulty in swallowing his food.
The veterinary department was called in to give them a warning. We have removed four out of nine of their dogs for medical and sterilization. All of them are emaciated and with bad skin condition. Malnourishment! The remaining five dogs will be removed by this weekend.
One of the female dog has a growth on the vulva and it is called TVT (Transmissible Vaginal Tumour). It's very contagious and can be transmitted through sexual contacts. If untreated they will go through a slow painful death.
A special thanks goes out to Mr. John Campen for his concern and making a report.
Lets us all take a minute or two to pray and ask God to send his guardian angels to look after all the animals in the world who are  going through misery.

"Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated; for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals, and so to share the blessings of the merciful. Amen!"

Noah's Ark TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) Program

These cats were rounded by the Malacca town council and they were on death roll by the end of each week. They were brought to our ABC (Animal Birth Control) Clinic to be sterilized under the TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) program.

Their left ear tip will be notched as a marking to indicate that they have been sterilized. Eventually, all these cats will be rehomed.

If you would like to help contribute to this cause with any kind amount to defray the costs of a full-time veterinarian, surgeries and other medical expenses, below are the details. Thank you.
