Don't leave your pet here!
Opposite the Song-ching 24hr supermarket on An Ping Road, Zhonghe (near the No. 4 Park) is a small kennel/cattery. The boss is a chubby guy and both him and his assistant Miss Lin are very friendly and seem to care about dogs. We live 90 seconds away and so have left our three dogs with them on quite a few occassions, but came back this time to find the trials of being PAID to look after dogs over the hoildays had obviously been too much.
Yesterday, when my boyfriend picked the dogs up and brought them back, I noticed instantly they had been heavily sedated and were also constipated and extremely dehydrated. I had to be restrained from going round to punch Miss Lin hard in the face. I still might
Even though all kennels may administer a slight sedative in food, and I "expect" all to ration water and food to avoid cleaning up too much shit, these people don't even have the sense to do it "correctly" so your dogs are wide awake when you pick them up
Seeing as the cost of three dogs per day was more than our hotel in Thailand per night, I would strongly advise anyone against leaving their dog or cat with this kennel.
The crazy-18-dog-woman in our alley has recommended the big pet-shop/kennel on Chung-cheng Road for next time, so I'll post a report whenever.
And just to end on a happy note, all three are perfectly fine this morning and tearing about the place as normal! They're busy "reclaiming" both floors of the house, balconies and yard with gusto! If only I could remember where I left the Lysol...
