Angel’s Cremation

Angel (#angelmcds) was taken over by Siew Ying when she was at the SPCA in 2012 and saw two ladies at the counter surrendering this Jack Russell Terrier (JRT). One of the woman said that the dog belonged to her daughter and she had gone overseas.
A trial of adoption for Angel failed as she exhibited some aggressive behaviour. Acupuncture helped to pacify her behaviour.
She was well loved and pampered at Mettacats & Dogs Sanctuary.

She was well until the late afternoon of 8th August 2017 when she became drowsy and could not walk. A few minutes she managed to get up and walked slowly towards her bedding.
She lapsed into a coma and took her last breath at 7.35pm.

She was cremated at Mobile Pet Cremation ( on 9th August 2017.

She is estimated to be about 13 years of age this year.

SY’s Birthday

It’s Siew Ying, founder of MCDS, (SY)’s birthday on the 12th of July.

She spends most of her waking time at the Sanctuary since 1999 (

She definitely deserves a break and a big birthday gift!

However, she thinks that sponsorship forMettacats & Dogs Sanctuary (MCDS) would be the greatest gift she could ask for.

Any amount of donation is welcome!

Her wish list consists of:

1) Frozen Food for the cats and dogs (SY will prepare nice home-cooked food for the cats and dogs)

2) Canned food for the dogs
(mostly Nutripe and sometimes Nature’s Gift)

3) Canned food for the cats
(the greedy finicky kitties want Aristro premium, Gold-D, Sheba, Monge and others)

4) Dry food for the dogs
(they get Taste of the Wild and Bosch dog food but they sometimes want something else)

5) Dry food for the cats (the kitties eat SANABELLE and GOLD-D kibbles. But there are times they ask for something else.)

6) Cat litter (the kitties use PEE WEE litter – they all agree that it’s the best!)

7) RENTAL and MISCELLANEOUS expenditure

Rental and Utilities alone cost approx $7000+++ per month

On 22/06/17, Woofie’s owner brought him to look for people to take him in as he was in a lot of personal problems.

He went to check around but no one would take him in FOC.

The owner has got no $$$$ to pay lodging and he has to be out of his place with immediate effect.

MCDS was the last unit that he approached.

We took him in.

The poor dog missed the owner.

Woofie kept whining till Terry brought him a soft mattress and sat down with him.

Terry talked to him for an hour or so, telling him about the rest of the dogs that were housed in MCDS.

Woofie was convinced and he slept through the night.

Now Woofie doesn’t whine anymore but will join in the barking gang .. 😀

When the owner was contacted that Woofie missed him, he said he would come to visit when he was more settled with his personal stuff.
He thought we were chasing him for $$$”

To help in the long term care of Woofie and other dogs at the Sanctuary, do consider sponsoring their food at these links:

1) NUTRIPE cannedfood

2) Frozen meat

3) BOSCH kibbles

Richie just passed away

Metta Cats & Dogs Sanctuary bids good-bye to one of the oldest residents, RIchie. He passed away without any struggle at 5.45pm on 3rd June 2017. Mummy Siew Ying would not be able to bathe him tomorrow but will now clean him for his cremation tomorrow.

PM MCDS if you would like to sponsor any portion of the cremation fee of $374 at Mobile Pet Cremation (

🌷🌺Background of Richie🐕:

Siew Ying recalls,
“Someone lodged him with a breeder then defaulted payment.

When the breeder was moving out they abandoned him @ Lorong Halus.

He made his way back to his previous residence every night hoping that they would open up the back door for him.

We fed him at the back fencing area for a while, then one day he refused to move away even after eating.

He was not neutered yet and we did not have enough cubicle to segregate him. I talked to him and wanted him to promise not to fight with the other dogs. He wagged his tail and sort of acknowledged. I took him in and he was ok sharing space from then on.

I think that about 10 years ago.


May he be happy where-ever he is now and if he is to reborn, be born a human who is not only wise but has a kind heart as well, so that he can help other living beings like he had been helped in this life.

Background: Jenna is a Siamese-mixed. Yet she was suspected to be dumped onto the streets because she is old and sickly with eye discharge. She was also not neutered.
She initially suspected to be young because of her small built.

Siew YIng updates, “Jenna .. she still hv discharge on left eye.. but put on some weight 😊
