Last weekend was a great one for one of the dogs' shelter as more volunteers came in to offer their help. There were two main groups on Saturday, UNITAR students for their charity project and UMS students who came along with one of the regular volunteers, Ju Ping. We welcome another individual who came in to help, Laura, and hopes that she will be one of the regulars too.
SPCA KK does not have any permanent staff to run all the shelters and doing the rescuing works too, among other things. All are working voluntarily, while at the same time doing their day job too to earn their livings. When a group of people get together and pitch in, they really can make a difference. The routine work of bathing the dogs, cleaning and cooking was done in a shorter time. The yard was cleared too, which has been put off before because there were not enough manpower to do so over the weekend.
As of Sunday, one more individual, Louise and a student from UMS came in to offer their help, too. So all in all, there were a total of 13 volunteers who came in over the weekend to make the jobs lighter. Hopefully there will be more individuals who will step forward and become regular volunteers for SPCA KK.
Thank you to each individual who came in over the weekend, your help is greatly appreciated! Hope to see you again!

Recently SPCA KK in facebook received a report stating that there was a badly injured dog that got hit by a car and was lying by the roadside. Unfortunately when 2 of SPCA KK members went to investigate the dog was no where to be found.
On Tuesday, one of SPCA KK EXCO members saw a dog by the road side that fits the description given but was not sure it that was the dog mentioned. She stopped by and gave the dog something to eat but the dog refused. The next day (Wednesday), she stopped again to give the dog some food but the dog still refused. It did not eat the food but was breathing hard, walked with wobbly legs. It must have been the one and may be it had recovered and gained some strength.The SPCA KK member tried to go near but the dog jumped across the drain. SPCA KK is looking into this matter to help the dog.

|E-Lin, Female, 2-3 months old|
Recently SPCA KK received two new members at the temporary cattery shelter. They were named E-Lan and E-Lin. These two kittens were dumped and were brought in by one of SPCA KK EXCO members. These kittens will be brought to the vet for vaccination. They are good kittens and know how to use the toilet.
There is also a female cat who just gave birth to 5 kittens. They are about 1 week old and just recently opened their eyes.
If you are interested to adopt any of the kittens, please contact us as the kittens are in need of a good home.

Last Saturday (12 Feb 2011) SPCA KK had 4 volunteers (Melle, Shima, Emily and Ju Ping) who came to help out at our temporary shelter for the dogs. Among the activities that were done were bathing the dogs, sweeping and moping the floor as well as washing their bowls. Apart from that, the most fun part of all was playing with the dogs.
|Lukluk was given a bath by one of the volunteers, Emily.|
|This is Snowy after her bath. She had a good sleep after that.|
|Emily playing with tips after his bath.|
|Ju Ping playing with Fluffy.|
We also had a family who came to adopt a puppy and the lucky pup is Tips. He is cute and very playful. We hope that he would be well taken care of and live a happy life next to his new family. We hope to find
more families and individuals who are keen in adopting a dog or a cat and giving them their love and care.
If you would like to help out at our shelters (dog or cat), just drop us an email. or drop a word or two at our Shout Box. We would really appreciate all the help that we can get.

Have you ever wonder why at times you will see the rubbish at the dustbins are scattered all over? Some may think that some stray dogs or cats have been messing around with the rubbish, going through it to find food. Yes, you may be right. But do you know that sometimes it is not even the animals fault? In some cases it is kids who would ransack the garbage bin to find materials that they could sell for money. The 'culprit' are not always the strays.
This is Jean. She recently got spayed after giving birth to 11 pups.
This is Jumpy. He is one of the members in SPCA KK temporary shelter. He is sweet and has a very charming personality.
These are Ming and Min. Both are sisters. There are daugthers of Cloudy, the famous dog who got into the newspapers, where her head was trapped in a plastic container for a few days.
This is Nenek. Another member of the Canine shelter. She has a cyst and the cyst burst recently. So now she in undergoing treatment. Hope that Nenek will recover soon.

We received good news today whereby Silver and Gedik and also Goldie have been adopted just a few hours ago by two nice young ladies, Melle and Shima. I'm sure that Melle and Shima will provide all the love and care for the two new members of the family. Thank you Melle and Shima for supporting SPCA KK. We hope that there would be more people who would be interested to adopt and care for these animals.

Hi. This is Chad. He is around 2-3 months old. He fell from the second floor and injured his spine. He was disowned and one of the SPCA KK members took him home. He could lift his feet occasionally. Hope that he would recover and be able to walk again like other cats.

This is Silver, a female,. Very pretty, has soft fur, good behaviour, playful, toilet trained and likes to eat and sleep in her cage but now let loose. Unfortunately, she is disowned and dumped by the owner at the holding place.Spayed and vaccinated. Good for apartment because she tiptoed on the sand, perhaps always in the house before.

This is Leo, male about 4-5 months. Greedy with food but playful.He was sick, skinny and thought would die. He was taken back to SAMC treated and now he is healthy and ready to be adopted.
Coffee was abandoned.His left eye sort of damaged and not sure if he is one side blind. Eats a lot and easily adaptable with new environment. He was recently castrated.
This is Charlie: just had his 3rd vaccine last week. He has pitiful eyes and gentle behaviour.
All these cats are held at SPCA KK's temporary cattery waiting to be adopted by good and caring people out there. They are gentle animals and have a lot of love to give and share with anyone who is willing to make them part of their family. Please help us find a good home for them.
