Be their voice

WARNING - some of the pictures may not be suitable for some viewers

One Saturday evening, Stanley was having dinner with his friends at a coffee shop in Bukit Indah and while eating, they could smell something rotten which made them lost their appetite.

Was there a dead rat some where?

The smell was getting unbearable.

They turned a round and saw a dog with a massive wound on its head - it was starting to rot and causing a bad smell. Looking at the wound, it was probably caused by a dog fight and it was left unattended for a couple of days.

Stanley approached the stall owner to ask if the dog belonged to anyone and the stall owner said that dog use to hang around the area. Stanley advised the stall owner to take the dog to the vet as soon possible and get it treated.  The stall owner agreed to get in touch with Noah's Ark ABC Clinic to make the necessary arrangements.

The next morning, our volunteer Tye went to Bukit Indah to look for the dog and to transport it the clinic.
It wasn't an easy dog to handle, it was aggressive but Tye managed to get hold of him with a rope and placed him in a pet carrier.
Punctured wounds caused by a dog fight around his face and ear.

Maggots crawling out off his ear.
When the dog arrived at the clinic, the dog was aggressive and tried to bite our worker.  We had no choice but to attend to his wound immediately by cleaning and flushing the maggots out of his ear. 

In 20 minutes, while cleaning the dog's ear, we picked up close to over 100 maggots.

We are now treating his wound, once he recovers, the vet will arrange to get him neutered and we will return him to wear he hangs out.

We would like to thank Stanley for taking the initiative to help the dog and to educate the stall owner about giving medical treatment to the dog and sterilisation.

We need more people like Stanley to be the voices for the animals and to educate the general public on the importance of sterilisation.

Noah's Ark can't house every rescued dog we help at the sanctuary, we can assist with low cost medical aid for the street dogs and street cats.

This dog fight could have been avoided, if the male dog was sterilised - reasons for them to fight was due to territorial.

Noah's Ark main focus is animal birth control - we need to control the animal population and to reduce unwanted puppies on the streets.
