Adopting a pet is a big responsibility, this is why we urge those who are interested in getting pets to properly think it through, as getting a pet is a long-term thing.
Recently, 13 dogs and cats in Johor that were said to have been abandoned for a month by their caretaker have been rescued by three friends.
According to Guang Ming Daily, the house in Taman Serene, Johor Bahru was left empty for three months after the tenant was forced to move out by the owner because she had not paid for her rent.
Jenny Tan, 38, is well-known for saving strays, she was alerted by someone living in the vicinity where the abandoned animals were left. After getting permission from the owner of the house, Jenny and her two friends went to rescue the poor animals.
She took to Facebook to share the experience on July 24, and the post has since gone viral with over 53,000 shares.
“The cats and dogs were believed to have been abandoned for at least a month while the tenant had left the house for three months.
“I walked into the house and saw the animals skinny, hungry, and the whole house was filled with dog feces and urine.”
There were a total of 19 cats and dogs found in the house.
After going around the house, she found out that three cats and one puppy had died from starvation while the remaining animals survived by eating their carcasses.
In addition, Jenny mentioned that two cats ran away during the rescue mission. However, she and her friends managed to save the remaining animals.
Ever since her post went viral, netizens have donated money to Jenny to get the animals neutered and vaccinated. She said,
“I will announce the total amount of money donated and the total amount spent on the neutering and vaccination on Facebook.”
She also said that she will be putting up the animals for adoption on social media when they get better.
After the post was shared, one of the animals, a Golden Retriever, caught the attention of a netizen who claimed that the dog belonged to her. The dog’s alleged owner told Jenny that she had left it with her friend, who also happened to be the tenant. She told Jenny,
“After moving houses, I realized that I was not allowed to keep my dog at my new place, so I left it with my friend and I did not expect to lose contact with her.”
Jenny mentioned that she will not put the Golden Retriever up for adoption until it is proven that the dog belongs to his lady.
Since then, Jenny posted updates on her Facebook account that the animals are safe and are currently under her care.
