Kemp – Rescued dog from Kempinski Hotel!

I was called a couple of days ago from a loving lady wanting to rescue a dog that she has been feeding for a week or two at the hotel she was staying (Kempinski Hotel in Lujiazui). Unfortunately she had to leave for the UK so she asked me to help by feeding it or have someone monitor his situation or rescuing him…..I went for the latter!

So earlier today, I headed out to the hotel.

The email below was an update message to the lady who called me about the dog in the first place. A happy update indeed :)

Hey there……

Well I have some news for you………………..I managed to rescue the dog after an hour of waiting and playing the ignorance game with him!  :)

I scouted the area where you told me to go and I luckily saw him by the back of the DBS building in the parking lot area. He ate a little bit of food I offered him and he was not thirsty. He was very skittish at first, but after half an hour of ignoring him, he got more and more confident and trusted me…..I managed to pet him after 30 minutes and then eventually wrapped my arms around and carried him in the car. The sweetest thing was when I carried him, he whined and gave me licks on my hand. He knew….he just knew he was going to be rescued.

So I am calling him Kemp for the time being (short for Kempinski!! LOL!)…….I took him to Beck & Stone (a reputable vet in Beijing and Shanghai) where he will be monitored and health checked first thing tomorrow morning. We decided to let him be for tonight so he can have proper food, water and sleep! The most important thing is that he is safe and sound.
He is twitching a lot so I am concerned as to what the issue could be. I will know more hopefully tomorrow so I will let you know.

I have attached a few photos for you that I took from my phone. I will send you better photos soon.

With regards to Kemp’s situation, I will let you know. I have asked for the best fees for medical/boarding as the amount will grow quite a bit especially if he requires special treatment.

Anyway, I am very relieved he is now safe and that we can help him recover.

I will keep in touch again soon.

Kind regards,

JAR AD 7th Sept

With short notice about changing location due to the Mid Autumn Festival and event outside Papas Bierstube, we were located at the very end of  Laowai Jie (Hongxu Lu entrance. Not ideal place to hold adoption day but it was either cancelling the event or giving our animals a chance to get adopted/fostered. In the end 7 animals got adopted so it was a good decision to do the event in general.

I want to thank our amazing volunteers for their support and help. It was hot and they kept their ‘cool’ in ensuring our animals, rescuers and foster carers were happy. I also want to welcome new volunteers who joined our group. Well done!

Due to short notice, the management of Laowai Jie informed us that we had to be moved further down (Hongxu Lu entrance). The location was not ideal, but it was either no adoption day or giving it a go……..Luckily, we successfully had 7 animals adopted and 2 fostered!!

I also am looking forward to cooperating with Bagong company (an applet/program) based in Beijing. A program that is a combination of WECHAT/TWITTER where individuals/groups uploads animals available for adoption online. More outreach and exposure for animals to the community. JAR will be the first animal rescue group trialing the application in Shanghai. More work to be done,….slowly but surely.

Thanking everyone for their commitment and we really appreciate your interests and ongoing  support!

See you next month!

We need your help!

** Email received **

Dear pet lovers,

We need help for this little puppies.

We found them, the 20.8.2014, on the street. First we found him, and one day later, we noticed that he has a little sister. They looked very pitiful, sad and ill. For this we took them immediately to the vet. It wasn’t a problem to take and to transport them in the arms in a taxi. They have been very quiet and didn’t made any problems, they both were cheerful, like humans and weren’t afraid.
The puppies had there a lot of medical examinations: blood, ears, skin, fur, excrement. He complained and whined a bit, but I think he had the right to do it, nobody likes examination. She was very uncomplicated.
He is 4 months old and male. We named him Sunshine, because he is so unbelievable cute and positive, I think he will enrich everybody’s life! She is 5 months and the most lovingly dog we know, she is so thankful. We called her Gypsy.
The current medical situation is:

  • Both have Demotex, these are mites that live in or near hair follicles.
  • For treatment they need every week one injection, last week they got the first one.
  • Sunshine needs next week, the 27.08.2014, additional one antibiotic injection ( he already got one last week).
  • Because of the itch from the Demotex mites, Sunshine scratched one ear bloody.
  • The ear must be treated with some lotion one week long and he has to carry a ruffle.
  • They haven’t got fleas
  • They have been dewormed
  • They have been bathed
  • They got vaccinated against everything and rubies from the Shenpu- Hospital
  • They got microchips from the Shenpu- Hospital
  • On the 22.09.2014 they have to been castrated and blood has to be taken and send to Germany (an important step for the export to Europe)

    The vet said everything should be good after the injections and it’s not tragic.
    How you can see on the picture, some stupid person cut Sunshine the fur. Normally he should look like a little golden retriever, said the vet. The fur will grow fast. For this his skin has a few scratches.

First we just wanted to find them a foster place, but now we got so much in love with the puppys, that we decided to take them with us to Germany.

The problem is, that we have to leave to Germany in already 2 weeks, but they have to stay here for another 4 months (until the 21.12.2014). We visited some boarding houses, but nothing seems to be good enough for them, because most of them have only little cages, what is worthless for a dog. We would love and pray, that they can found a lovely family for this time, which has time and love for the dogs, they deserve it so much”
There are also big boarding houses with bigger kennels, than the small boxes, but it’s very expensive and we can’t afford the money for 2 puppies for 4 months. And they don’t devote themselves to the dogs, I don’t think they spend much time with them. But we also can’t let them go back to live on the street!
They both like human, it doesn’t seem, that they have been ever treated violent. They like also other dogs, always when they see another dog they wag the tail and are very delighted. They are very uncomplicated and intelligent dogs. He is very cheerful, like nearly every puppy, and not afraid or aggressive. He just teethes, for this he likes to nibble the leash.

She is a little sweetheart and so kind, so honest, so cheerful when she sees one, we totally lost our heart.
We bought them a dog harness and have been out with them, the walking on the lead was very easy, they learned it already. They are not afraid of cars, loud places, people, big dogs or something else, everything was really fine.
Unfortunately we are not allowed to keep them in the hotel, we asked already several times. And naturally we can’t put them again on the street! Now they are on the boarding house “Zimba” in Songjing, but unfortunately it is quite expensive and they really don’t use much time for the dogs.
Our biggest wish is to find for them for the 4 months a loving person or family with enough place, because they are so innocent creatures, which never have done something and deserve so much, to be well treated. They give so much love and not even want to get something back.

So we called JAR and begged for help. And now we pray, that someone can take this little puppys fast! Please help little Sunshine and Gypsy.

Thank you very much for the time spent listening this appeal for help and please help us!

Happy new beginning…..

Dear All,
I’m writing with an update on Frank, but first let me apologize for the delay in sending one; it’s been a busy summer with home country travel, some health issues, moving apartments, and changing jobs.  Even so, I am sorry to not have kept everyone up to date along the way with how Frank is doing, but I know write with great news.
As you all know, Frank’s first surgery was to close the wound around his face.  He recovered well, but a more invasive surgery was needed to correct his fractured hip.  Doctors Beck and Stone proceded with this second surgery in mid-June (even though all the money was not yet raised to pay for it!).  They even put Frank’s story on their website to help raise additional funds.  After the hip surgery (in which he was also neutered as well), Frank remained in boarding at Beck and Stone so that he could continue with physical therapy/massage on a daily basis while he re-learned to use his hind leg and we searched for a forever home.
He seemingly came to know the vet office as “home” and consequently became quite comfortable there, despite most animals sensing/disliking being at a vet’s office.  As it was probably the nicest home Frank had ever known (having come from a hard life on the streets), he was apparently always happy and lively when clients and their pets came in for an appointment.
Many people commented about what a great dog he is and fortunately, he caught the eye of some dog-lovers.  The family has two big dogs already (hence the visits to the vet during Frank’s stay there), a big house outside of Shanghai and hearts big enough for one more family member.
So the great news is, Frank has been adopted!  Please find some pictures of Frank at his new home with his “big sisters” (in the other dogs).
I am still awaiting confirmation, but another praise is that I believe all funds have been raised to cover all his expenses.  Thank you so much for being a part of giving this precious boy a Happy New Beginning!
Warmest Regards & Sincerest Appreciation for all Your Help,
