CNRM work in Johor (from Nujtiya Chareansouk)

Nujtiya Charensouk first started her CNRM work in Kangar, Perlis, helping her mother with street dogs.  That was way, way back in 2013 where we helped with our neutering, medical and food aid.

She stays in Johor and has been doing very effective and admirable CNRM work there as well. We have since helped Nujtiya with the neutering of 99 dogs and 4 cats over the years and when we were short on funds a new months ago, Nujtiya voluntarily “graduated” herself and started donating back to our Fund.

Now that we have launched our Project-Based Applications, she is welcomed to apply for our funds again, based on “projects”.

Even when Nujtiya was claiming from us all these years, she had always been very honest, accountable, responsible and transparent in her communication with us. There was a certain time when she was able to claim from another organisation in Johor and she sent us all the photos of every single dog she had claimed from that other organisation.

Here’s a report from Nujtiya on the few projects we have agreed to help her with now.

Dr Chan,

I have started CNRM since last year June for another area in Gelang Patah Johor (I named it “GP-Area B”). This place used to have about 20 dogs and I managed to catch them one by one and sent them to new homes, fruit plantation, durian plantation, rubber estate, chicken farm and factory. Some dogs come and go, so now I left only 3 adults dogs and 2 puppies to catch in Area B.

Area B is actually a place where the developer abandoned their dogs after they completed their project. Below are the list that I have rehome them to some different places:

1M (XiongXiong) – was infected with TVT & tick fever but now fully recovered and sent to fruit plantation at Senai Johor. The dogs here were given food twice a day. I visit him about once a month.
2F (HeiHei) – sent to a durian plantation at Chaah Johor. Not allowed to visit due to some private reason but trusted person as she is a good friend of a dog lover.
3F (May May) – sent to new home at Masai Johor – the owner is the aunt of a dog rescuer.
4M (Coco) – found swollen on face but now recovered and sent to a factory at Pasir Gudang Johor. Mostly taken care by a Burmese Guard who love dogs very much. He talked and comforted the dogs whenever I sent new dogs to this factory.
5M (JingJing) – found a big wound on his neck but now recovered after about 2 months treatment. Sent to the same factory as 4M.
6M (BaiBai) – found tick fever during castration but now recovered and sent to a Chicken farm at Pekan Nenas Johor. This boss and a worker take very good care of the dogs that I sent to them.
7M & 8M – sent to a new home at Permas Jaya Johor. The pups were freely roam in their garden at a corner lot house.
8F (Lucky) – sent to a new home at Pontian Johor. A teacher adopted this dog for her son and also her students, she wants them to be a more responsible person by taking care of the dog.
9M (ShaoZu) – son of 13F (Mumu). Was sent to a new home at Gelang Patah Johor. This pup bit the owner’s new shoes cost about RM100++, but they didn’t beat the pup at all. Furthermore, he always update me how playful is the pup.
10F (BaiMi) – sent to a rubber estate at Yong Peng Johor which owned by a true dog-lover couple. They live with the dogs inside the estate, so far without water supply and electricity yet. This dog was found infected with TVT after spaying but recovered. However, she went missing thrice. I managed to found her back for the first time but few weeks later she went missing again, back to the estate by herself a day later. Sadly she didn’t come back at all after she left for the 3rd time. I have searched over the place nearby but still I can’t find her… She is gone forever.
11M (BaYue) – sent to a rubber estate at Yong Peng Johor together with 10F (BaiMi). He is still there but overweight since everyday having good food 😊 I paid RM50 monthly to support them on dog food.
12F (XiaoXiao) – sent to a rubber estate at Yong Peng Johor where 11M (BaYue) lives in early Feb ’19. This dog is too timid to open for adoption. Till now, she is still tied up (with long chain) since she is too afraid to get closer to human. We don’t want to lose her again. I paid RM50 monthly to support them on dog food.
13F (MuMu) – was infected with TVT since last year and she was pregnant at that time. She delivered 2 pups in December – 9M (Shaozu) and15F (Melon) .
14F (XiaoDan) – Spayed and still stay in my house, she is too timid and I think she needs more time before I send her to the fruit plantation.
15F (Melon) – daughter of 13F (MuMu), a very cute and smart girl. She will pee at the pee tray and understand “sit” & “hand” so far. She was sent to a new home yesterday and I am glad she likes the place.
16M (ZhuDing) – This dog is new at “GP-Area B”, he was trapped in my trap cage last week when I intended to catch other female dogs. No choice, I brought him back (currently at my house) and plan to neuter him on this coming Sunday.
17F (Coco), 18F (Moon), 19F (XiaoLi) & 2 puppies – This place is now left only 3 female dogs & 2 puppies, I need to catch them within these 1.5 months before they on heat soon. These 3 dogs are super smart and difficult to catch. 17F (Coco) was actually spayed and released back last year since nobody wanted to adopt her at that moment. Anyway, I will catch her again and send to the fruit plantation.

Doby mix reunited with owner!


Thanks to the concerted efforts of Ms Yi Xin and her brother through the social media (and yes, thanks to social media), we managed to locate the owner of the Doby mix rescued yesterday. The owner was overseas but today, her husband came to reclaim the dog with their domestic helper (whom the dog responded to).

We would like to thank all who have helped, those who forwarded our appeal, and grateful thanks to those who put in extra efforts, namely Yi Xin, her brother and father, Mr Looi, the owner of Medifoods, Adeline Khaw and PAWS Animal Shelter.

We have also advised the owner to please put a collar with a tag containing the owner’s contact details on all his dogs.

To all dog owners, please ensure your dogs have tags at all times because animals do escape once in a while.  But do please secure your house compound to minimise the chance of escape because it has been reported to us that councils in various places have been going around to catch roaming animals.

Please keep your animals safely indoors.

Found dog in SS18/6, Subang Jaya – is it your dog? – Owner FOUND!

Updates: Thanks to the concerted efforts of a pair of siblings who first found the dogs and their connection through the social media, the owner has been found!! The owner will take back the dog tomorrow.

We thank everyone who has helped.

The original post: 

This very friendly, obedient and well-trained male dog was found wandering along SS18/6, Subang Jaya this morning. He appears to be either lost or abandoned. He is most likely a Doberman mix and is estimated to be about 3 years old.

If he is your dog, kindly contact me at

If you would like to adopt him and give him a good home (indoors only, please), also, please contact me.

Please help us forward this link widely. Thank you.

Intruder alert!! Buddy attacks!!

Today, the lanky ginger intruder came again…..

This time, I had my phone with me.

Guess who was fighting him off?


Looks like Buddy regards our porch as HIS territory now.

Ginger lent some strength in terms of a few soft war-cries, but he seemed quite unperturbed. Is it because Lanky is also a ginger cat? Aha!! Racism?? Or, is it because Ginger is saying, “Hah!! Serves you right, Buddy….now, you fight, I’m not helping you!” 

But Mr Zurik was scared. He just hunched his back at the garbage compartment, away from the “happenin’ place”.

I helped Buddy shoo Lanky out of the gate. Buddy was at his best. He gave chase coupled with his mightiest war-cries and Lanky went into the drain.

Do you think Lanky came because he detected a “vacancy”. But there is no more vacancy, Lanky. We are not adopting anymore cats. Sorry! Even Buddy is just a guest who comes for food.

Buddy: What??? I’m JUST a guest?? I just helped you chase an intruder out and I’m JUST a guest??? Some gratitude, please? 

Thank you, Buddy, but er….you are a guest. You have your own home. Please go home.

It was only after the commotion and after the noise had died down that Zurik dared to eat. Poor Zurik…he was scared.

Don’t worry, Zurik. Our porch is yours.

Cow Mau and Indy wanted to help.

If we had unleashed Cow Mau and Indy, Lanky wouldn’t have stood a chance…or so we think?

I have a feeling Lanky will be back. And he won’t be an easy case.  He seems the determined kind.
