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!"
