Joy Is Fine And Encompassed By Love

Thank you all so much for your support. Those who wrote in with letters and posted your comments on the blog. Yes! Linking RSC to your blog with Joy's story will most definitely help. So my gratitude and thanks to all of you who are doing this.

One of them is Nick Josh Karean who is representative of the Humane Society in Malaysia. Nick posted Joy's story and it made it to the front page of Care2NewsNetwork. Do log on and read the many comments from abroad if you wish to at

So far Sin Chew did a great story on Joy and Malaysiakini also carried the story. We are still working to get the news out. We are even getting some reaction from the Malaysian government, which we shall notify you all of later.

For those of you who are distressed, please don’t be. I am putting up a photo of Joy at the Press Conference in Batu Caves just to assure all of you he is fine now (photos of Joy on Sherrina's lap. Sherrina is from the Independent Pet Rescuers. To the right (seated) is Sabrina Yeap. Tuan Hj Rahim from ABDA Aviation and his wife Umi are at the back.

This goes to show what love can do. Even the greatest wound inflicted heals through a large dose of LOVE. And God is LOVE.

Tuan Hj Rahim and Sister Umi are a muslim couple. They feed all of God's creatures including dogs. They came to support us and denounce this cruel act upon Joy.

Jesus said "If you live by the sword, you will die by the sword."

So we won't stoop to the level of crying vengeance. I know a lot of you are angry but let's put this anger to positive use and not get bitter. We will continue with what we are always preaching:

"Education and speaking up for the voiceless" because the Truth will set you free.

This is why RSC arranged for muslims to come to the Press Conference on December 14 at a restaurant in Batu Caves. We are here to work together with our brothers and sisters from different religions to fight ignorance.

We don't want to see what happened to Joy happen again.

    Good to know know Joy is in good care, with lots of love. I dont understand how anyone ould beat up a pup till its jaw is almost severed. I believe education, respect & love is the key to create a more loving society towards animal. Karma really exists..what you do unto others will come back to you one day. May hell hath fury upon those who harm. To animal lovers/saviours angels like Shoba & others, god will bless you many folds.

    Er...... although what happened to Joy was a despicable act, the post sounds as if a certain group of people needs to be 'educated'.

    I'm sure I don't need to say that animal cruelty can come from the rich,poor,religious,non-religious etc. It doesn't matter what the background, compassion is a learned value.

    For instance, if we're at the zoo, and teenage boys start banging on the cages because their excuse is, 'we pay RM10 to see the stupid animals, the stupid animals dun want to come out', what should we do?

    These kids are raised to think animals are worthless, how do we get them to see that animals can suffer too? That a little compassion will serve everyone around them a little good?

    An idea might be to ask the Education Ministry and schools to participate in a "Pets in School today" or something similar - where kids can learn about house pets, get over any misconceptions they have about animals, as well as knowing what to do when confronted with an angry animal and why an animal does what it does.

    Young kids understand easily, up til then their life experiences are influenced by the good and bad experiences of their parents. Wouldn't it be something if a kid is able to tell the difference that 'my experience with an animal is different from mom's and dad's?

    It was sad and heartbreaking for me to read about Joy, softy that I am , it made me burst into tears, run home and hug my two dogs. It goes to show though that, Joy is an extremely trusting dog, seeing as he has put his faith in his rescuers. Looking at his pictures now he seems happy.

    I agree with Serena, that Karma really exists. In any aspect of life, whatever you do / inflict on another life, good or bad, will eventually come back to you.

    Happy New Year guys!

    Thank you for your well wishes for Joy and bless your heart for wanting to help.

    I'm afraid the way to help now is not through the Petition since the new law for the protection of animals has already been passed (sadly with no changes).

    But please do read the post about Furry Friends Farm's wish list and help them with donations or any other way you can. FFF is an outstanding animal shelter that also is a working farm with part of the proceeds going for the upkeep of the animals.

    RSC and FFF's main goals are to "educate" the public and God willing the government too about the proper and ethical treatment of all animals.

    So if you can please donate or help in any other way to fulfill FFF's Christmas list, the Farm can then continue to help many other animals like Joy. Thank you.
