About a month ago, a supervisor (local chap) arrived at the construction work site somewhere in Changi to find a puppy covered with dirt and ants. He thought it was dead and was about to bury it when he noticed there was chest movement.
He rushed the puppy to a vet.
The vet said that the puppy’s head was very swollen.
Under anaesthesia, he found a long longitudinal laceration along the line of the neck spine. He suspected that the wound was likely to be intentionally inflicted with a chopper or cleaver. Was the puppy meant to be food but for some reasons, it didn’t end up in the cooking pot?
There were bits of what looked like brain tissue in the wound.

Miraculously the puppy survived but with some impairment of vision.

The puppy is gal.

She is now due for discharge.

She is about 3-month-old by now.

Because of her partial visual impairment, she may be snappy to “strange” hands but once your smell is familiar and the hands are proven to be friendly, she will open up her heart to you too.

If you can open your heart and your non-HDB home (local dogs are NOT permitted in HDB flats).

Felix for debridement of an abscess on his lower back

Felix is featured in the first edition of the MettaCats notepads.

He recovered completely from his hind limb paralysis.

He has recurrent skin abscesses and hence his sterilisation was delayed till now.

He is now admitted to Pet Clinic for sterilisation and saucerization of a non-healing wound on his lower back.

The elderly feeder who found him on 28th March 2010 said that she was not able to pay for any of Felix’s expenses (vet fees and boarding).

Please contact us if you would like sponsor Felix’s boarding (that will pay for his food) and his current vet fees (for sterilisation and “debridement” surgery), . Sponsoring will be cheques to

2) Loving Pets (to pay for his food)
