Can you help foster a dog please?

This is how Mdm Goh's story goes.

Initially, these dogs were living with a mentally unsound man. We are unsure how he acquired these dogs but he had these four in his home. The dog’s rescuer, Mdm Goh, has recounted that she has witnessed him kicking them before and demonstrating other forms of abuse. He has since been admitted into the Institute of Mental Health.

A few days ago, Mdm Goh called Noah’s Ark and mentioned she has heard he has been discharged, but she was not at all keen to return the dogs to him as the safety of the dogs was in question. Having no heart to see them being put down, she heard about their plight and took them into her care. Mdm Goh is an extremely kind lady and has one dog and cats of her own, not to mention she also feeds strays outside. After the initial rescue, Mdm Goh managed to bring them to the vet and get them treated by raising her own funds. Currently her funds are running low, and eventually she approached NA for help to rehome these dogs.

The four dogs are:

Terrier Cross - Male, not yet paper trained. Tends to mark at home. Needs a firm hand with lots of patience. An extremely cute and lively young boy.

Blind mongrel - Seems rather old, we are unsure of his age. He generally spends his days sleeping. Perhaps his inability to see prevents him from moving about too. He does nothing but sits in one corner the whole day without moving, except for relieving himself.

Female American Cocker Spaniel - Looks to be about 8 to 10 yrs old. The abuse and lack of love and care could make her look older than she really is. She has dry eyes and very weak hind legs. Is only able to do slow, short walks. She is constantly wheezing and needs to be on daily medication for her heart problem as she suffered a heart attack before. Spends her day sleeping and is very affectionte.

Blind poodle – We are not sure how old she is but she looks to be quite young, about 3 or 4. Possibly blind since birth. Extremely scared, constantly bumping into things and crying. She stops when you cuddle and reassure her. We believe that with tender loving care and patience, she can be trained and to feel a sense of security.

All of them are very sweet and having been abused, are extremely insecure and scared. The blind dogs are the worst off as they can neither see nor move about. We hope people can come forward to help foster these dogs and hopefully also help paper train them to give them a better chance of being adopted.

If you can help in any way, please drop us an email @ On behalf of Mdm Goh, we are in need of assistance as HDB has already issued her a warning to remove the animals asap.

Thank you for reading this blog post.
