We later learnt that Auntie Q had passed on early this year. Uncle Q is now staying alone at his kelong with three dogs as his only companions, but his kind neighbours check on him daily to ensure he is well. Uncle Q was worried sick about his biggest dog Big Boy, a large brown dog who has been coughing for some time and nearly collapsed yesterday. We told Uncle Q we will bring Big Boy to the vet clinic for medical assistance, but we were unable to have immediate access to Big Boy due to the location.
Big Boy has been diagnosed with advanced stage heartworm, and the vet did advise us he might not make it. The chest x-rays looked really cloudy which were not good at all. We saw Big Boy labouredly breathing and looking listless, but we are not giving up on him as yet. Treatment has started and he is on drip for now - the next few days are very crucial.
We need your help for Big Boy, as we are expecting him to be warded for at least a week and given his size, the bill will be larger than normal. We will help Uncle Q through this and hopefully let Big Boy continue to accompany him (after he is fully recovered).
About the Charity
NA CARES was registered in 2005 to undertake sterilization projects of both stray dogs and cats in Singapore, rehome adoptable strays, and to ensure the welfare of animals sent to Noahs Ark Natural Animal Sanctuary (NANAS) by assisting in the fund raising efforts for NANAS in Malaysia. Since then, NA CARES has sterilized an average of 150 animals each year in Singapore, through the dedicated hard work of its Singapore volunteers and vets.
In 2015, NA CARES was asked to participate in the Trap-Neuter-Relocate project in Jurong Island, together with ASD and SOSD. In recognition of our efforts, MCCY granted NA CARES charity status on 9.5.2016. With conferment of charitable status comes greater regulation and requirements imposed on NA CARES, and we have been asked to separate the Singapore from the Malaysian activities.
NA CARES has been re-organised to reflect its Singapore-centric activities. A new logo has been introduced so that supporters are aware that NA CARES is no longer involved with any of the Malaysian activities of NANAS.
