This poor boy (whom we have named Rex) was spotted one late weekday night. We were already pretty horrified at his condition from far, and we knew we had to get him fast. We thank our lucky stars that Rex was not difficult to get hold of - our initial suspicion was TVT (transmissible venereal tumor) which we were afraid might spread to other dogs. Luckily, it was not.

The vet shared that maggots have eaten away the foreskin/prepuce covering Rex's penis. Even his penis bone was exposed! This injury was there for a while and while Rex tested negative for TVT, he tested positive for tick fever.

The clinic spent quite some time removing the maggots and cleaning up the wound, and we were advised to give it a couple of weeks for healing first to see if the skin grows back before we decide on the next course of action for him.

Rex is an old scrawny boy but surprisingly sweet and love head scratches. He has a hearty appetite for his size, and is easily managable despite the extent of his wound. We feel he is tired from roaming the streets for years. Unsure on the future plans for Rex, but we will concentrate on getting his wound totally healed first. He definitely cannot go back to the streets, but we do not have a shelter on mainland so he is only with a temporary fosterer for now.

Can you help us foster/adopt Rex or at least help with his medical bill?

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.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
