Pet Farm Kennel 9 Story Is True But Exaggerated
Okay..I know I am a bit kaypoh but before I donate my well-earned cash to this cause I need to know more right?
So, darlings, the story is TRUE but got exaggerated in the message.
Straits Times have published an article on April 21 2010 about the volunteers led by Derrick Tan who have bought over the abandoned dogs for a 5-digit sum to ensure they are still cared for.
Here’s an abstract of the article of what really happened:
“On April 10, the breeder had placed a classified advertisement in The Straits Times looking for buyers for his farm and equipment for $20,000. The group heard that the breeder could not manage his farm, and was concerned about the dogs.
But the rescue last week has raised concerns among other animal welfare groups that breeders are preying on public sympathy to dump their ‘old stock’.
In the private rescue effort, civil servant Derrick Tan, 29, and about seven friends bought the animals from the Pasir Ris farm for an undisclosed five-digit sum. They are now trying to get medical treatment for the purebreds, which include miniature schnauzers and golden retrievers, before finding them homes” – Straits Times reporter, Grace Chua.
The message all of you probably got was an exaggeration that the dogs were only gonna live for 2 weeks more and gonna die.
Whoever sent that first message had NOTHING ELSE BETTER TO DO than make me worried and do some hardcore research on what’s going on. But I guess, if he didnt exaggerate it, no one would take it this seriously..
It’s up to you people now..NOW that you know what’s going on, you gonna be numb and just watch the dogs survive on the volunteers alone or will you donate some cash to help the volunteers get the equipment and neccessities the dogs need?
Think about it, YOU are not doing the labour here but they are so you could help just a bit.
