We had an influx of animals that needed our help in the last couple of weeks and our volunteers could barely cope. Practically, we do know that we cannot save every single dog on the street, but if you happened to see a dog in front of you that is unwell - are you able able to walk away? We could not do it.
Whether it was a major or a minor injury, one more previous life is saved and we try our best. All rescue cases require energy i.e. time, labour and finance. Our dedicated volunteers have been attending to their stray charges diligently and Noah's Ark has been actively working and promoting TNRM (Trap-Neuter-Release-Management).
We need your help to help the animals:
to fund the rescued animals medical aid
Our team of volunteers have been working towards a goal of having less strays on our streets because the streets are not their homes.
With the number of rescue cases pouring in, our vet bills are at an all time high. If you could support our work, please email us at Noah's Ark CARES any contribution is appreciated to support our work and the animals medical aid.

Noah's Ark Update
Recently we found a lump growing on Nugget's throat. Under sedation, the vet managed to squeeze out the lump and to see soft tissue. An ultrasound will be able to diagnose his condition, due to the high cost, we had to put it on hold.
Nugget is currently on antibiotics and he will be going for his review soon.
During our rounds when we were out looking for Ricky's neighbour Rain, we found him lying listlessly under a container truck. The worker said that he has been like this for the past few days and it was getting worrying. Concern for Ricky's welfare, we took him to the vet.
Blood tests and x-ray were done and nothing was detected. We left him at the vet for 2 nights for observation in case something was not right with his immune system and he was diagnosed for dehydration because of his multiple bite wounds on him.
She has a tipped ear and we assumed she is sterilized since a tipped ear is an indication of being neutered for street dogs. But one night, when we saw her with a swollen vulva our jaws dropped. The male dogs were also after her! Was she on heat?
The vet did a thorough vaginal examination and did not find any lump so TVT was ruled out. A higher possibility was that the spaying was not properly performed and Rain has retained ovaries - that was the reason why she was on heat again.
Thumper is an innocent young puppy who greets everyone wagging his thin long tail. He can be carried, handled and he will not resist. How could a sweet boy survive being a stray?
One fateful evening, Thumper was attacked by a pack of five big dogs. What crime did he commit? He simply went up to a contractor whom he recognized to happily greet him. The attack was triggered by jealousy and pack instinct.
