Smile PetFinder.my in TheStar Metro 2008-10-30

Dear All,

Lost and kidnapped dogs from PetFinder.my have been featured today in TheStar's Metro section, Page 1 & 2.

Here's the online copy of it:

Thieves target pedigree pets in the Klang Valley
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...07&sec=central


Hope that this will increase the awareness of pet owners. And there must definitely be a much tougher penalty on such crimes. The stress and emotional torture endured by the owner is not unlike that of losing his own family member.

Our full list of Lost & Found profiles are here:

Hahaa, not much of an interview lah... more like PetFinder is providing them with information on the lost and kidnapped pets...

It's good that TheStar is now carrying more pet-related articles, so pet owners are more well informed and hopefully will get more people interested in animal welfare.

wow..congrats andy for putting petfinder in the media...
hope the matter in the news would be solve or atleast they have their leads on the lost pets..
hope next time petfinder would be issue in a more happy news...

Quote:
Petfinder.com.my founder Andy Koh said his six-month-old site had since received more than 50 lost pet cases involving both dogs and cats.

One which he could recall was a member losing her Bull Terrier dog in Selayang.

“It was dognapped from her house and the abductors demanded a ransom from them. Later on, her friend’s bull terrier was also dognapped by the same gang,” Koh said.

“They paid the ransom but when they got their dogs back, they found them to have been brutally tortured. One of the dogs died a few days later while the other was hospitalised for serious injury,” he said.

“The last I heard from them was that the police had arrested someone, but I am not sure of the final outcome,” Koh said.

He said the dogs might have been stolen for breeding purposes as they were mostly pure breed dogs and were expensive.
neway dogs also get abducted so no wonder for human kidnapping is also increasing nowadays..

haha, thanks chelly... i am indeed very happy to see our little "baby" growing up!

it is a very nice achievement from our entire community - everybody is playing their role very well - saving more animals, helping spread knowledge around, showering animals with more love and care...

you know, it's a bit like a factory production line.. each of us contributing to the process according to our means and expertise.. and the final product of this special PetFinder factory is an "Animal Paradise"!
