Several days ago, a kind member of the public, Eileen, saw an injured dog with horrific head wound in Punggol. Determined to help the poor dog, she tried to gain the trust of the dog together with feeders and other concerned members of the public. They spent days and nights, trying to administer medicine and trap the dog. Unfortunately, the poor girl was afraid and ran away from them. Finally, with the help of a kind dog owner at Gallop Stables (who knows the dog and calls her Brownie) the dog was finally lured into a closed area, and successfully put in a carrier and sent to the vet for treatment!
Brownie’s wound would have engulfed her whole head if not for all the kind people who decided to stand up, and make a difference, when they saw this dog in need:
June and Eileen, who spotted Brownie and started the rescue;
Jolene, Lomento, Alicia, Charlotte, who assisted in rescue operations;
Yen Ling and Ray, who helped give medicine and assisted in trapping Brownie;
Jeremy from Jomandi Bike Shop, Punggol settlement, who helped keep an eye out;
Jill, from Gallop Stables, who helped enticed Brownie into a room;
Dr Marese Ong, from Allpets & Aqualife clinic, who took Brownie in despite 5 minutes from closing!;
These are the heroes in this rescue!
Stray dogs endure the elements, hunger, and the constant threat of losing their lives. Alone, we can only do so little for these stray dogs, but when people come together for a cause, miracles happen.
Brownie is now resting and recuperating in the SOSD Rehabilitation Centre. She would not be here, and would have been doomed to a slow and painful death, if not for the hard work, of the beautiful people who volunteered their time and took the effort to make a difference.
