    Default Urgent Help needed from fellow CS members esp those in Serangoon Gardens, Kovan area.

    Dear all,

    At the risk of getting flamed, I sincerely ask for your help.

    Today, 11/04/06, while walking home from Kovan MRT towards Highland area. I came across two golden retrievers. They were walking around aimlessly, and were almost knocked down by vehicles a couple of times. Fearing for their safety, I called out to them. Well, maybe I should MYOB. Anyway to cut a long story short, the two of them ended up following me home.

    So now I have 2 GRs in my home! I'm keeping them here overnight for their safety. Worried that they either get knock down or captured by some other pple.

    I ask all those who are staying around Kovan, Highland, Lowland, Serangoon, Serangoon Gardens; to help keep a look out for anyone looking for their lost dogs or anyone who knows that someone/family have lost 2 GRs.

    Do inform me should anyone of you have any ideas. I also expect lots of pple trying to claim them as their dogs, so I will only believe them if they can describe the dogs/collars they are wearing and also their dog tags.

    Anything just update in this thread or PM me. Thanks

    poor doggies....

    1) check newspapers tomorrow
    2) Call SPCA / AVA (to check, cause the dogs, if wearing some tags, should have the owner;s info)
    3) If u bring them to a pet shop, they can check the their id... i forgot what is the thing called liao... the tag that's under their skin, the owner should be able to id with that number..


    Poor doggies
    i better go check on mine~ Just in case their are mine

    Oh, just to add, I've also brought them to walk around the area for about an hour or so, hoping to find someone looking for them....sad to say I don't see anyone looking for lost pets neither were the 2 smart enough to know where their home is.

    yeah you can try to check with pet shops near the mrt station, i usually see posters of lost pets there.. so far i only saw one auntie walking GR dogs here at simon late.. i'll try to see if she still walks them, if not maybe it's her dog..

    I;ve checked with 1 pet shop who always have worried owners going to them when they lost any dogs.....so far no news. Just feeling a bit strange........how come there are missing and i don't see anyone out looking for them or they have wandered too far away from home?

    Pretty sound advice so far. No collars or dog tags on them? If they have a microchip tag embedded it would make it a lot easier. Just bring them down to a vet and/or pet shop to scan...

    You can try putting up found posters in your area too.

    Also http://www.pets.com.sg/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=25 ... its a long shot but you can try there...

    bro you can bring them to the pet shot.. can ask them a favor to scan microchip on their necks.. the microchip contains the owners particulars; name, address and phone number..

    Hmm you mean the dog tags got no serial number or name/contact of owner? Thats kinda wierd. ideal situation would be that they have been microchipped. the owner cna be traced very easily that way.

    I seriously hope this is not another case of abandonment... nice of you to give them a safe heaven

    Got no. on the tag but it's a really old tag .............and i mean old.......perhaps passed from dog to dogs. I know of some pple who wants to save some $ from license fees, use tags from other pple's dogs........also to avoid being fined for not having a licensed dog.
