|Just rescued. Check up at the Vet|
|Braven warded at the Vet for a battery of tests. He was found to have an enlarged liver, enlarged spleen and an enlarged right kidney.|
|Looking much happier and in less pain after his leg amputation|
I still vividly remember my mum (who was in her 60s) climbing up 16 floors of stairs from block to block calling out and looking for our lost poodle. My mum had a phobia of taking the elevator but that did not stop her from searching for our lost poodle. She enquired with neighbours, passers-by, road sweepers, and nearby schools to keep a lookout for our dog. We called the SPCA and advertised in the newspapers. Our efforts and prayers were answered and we finally found our poodle a week after it was lost. My mum taught me resilience, compassion, hope, and responsibility.
Braven, finally happy and comfortable after his amputation. Look at him run!I strongly believe that we should all act responsibly and try everything possible to help our pets. They are precious living things and not a piece of furniture that can be discarded or a product with an expiry date. A pet is a lifelong commitment. To you, he may be just a dog, but to him you are everything. Your pet cat or dog is a domesticated animal living under the same roof as you. They have not been taught to hunt for their food and were born and raised to be dependent on their owners for food and shelter. Dumping them on the streets is cruel and subjects them to starvation, disease, injuries, and is basically a death sentence. Please think twice before getting a pet if you are uncertain that you can provide a home for the animal for the rest of its life. Adding a pet to the family is an important decision. Animals deserve our love and sensible care; finding another appropriate home for your pets is your responsibility and any local humane society or animal welfare league can offer you good advice. Please also spay and neuter your pets to prevent unwanted animals. Therefore, I appeal to all those pet owners out there to have a heart and act responsibly.
