Our Campaign Story

ends 16 Jul 2018, 11:59 PM

In the years of our rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming work, we've had numerous dogs that have gone from the streets, to shelter, to homes. The transition isn't always easy, and very often, the dogs take a while to settle into their new homes, without the companionship of other canine friends.

As careful as we try to be, more often than we hope, dogs go missing, usually by escaping the house, or running off on walks. Volunteers are then activated to search for the lost dogs, and it could take nightly stake outs and sightless searches for days to months, and sometimes, the dogs are never found.

We have established that the dogs typically make a break for it in the first couple of weeks of their homestay, and in our pilot, the podtracker that we have purchased has fulfilled our requirement of tracking a dog's live location, stays snugly on the dog and has a reasonably long battery life.

We'd like to appeal for donations, so that we can purchase 10 units of the podtracker. Each podtracker costs US$89.00 (currently on sale, with free life-time subscription), and together with the shipping, we are looking to raise SG$1500.

Help us find our dogs, so we can get them home. Thank you!

About The Charity

SOSD is a volunteer-run organisation dedicated to the welfare of Singapore's many street dogs.

Our mission is to eliminate cruelty to and abandonment of animals, enhancing their welfare, and improving the lives of animals and humans, through rescue, education and advocacy.

SOSD relies on the generosity of the public to support its shelters at Sungei Tengah and Jurong Island. Our expenses have gone up drastically with the increase in rental, hire of staff to run both shelters and implementation of the Trap-Neuter-Release- Management ("TNRM") programme.

You can make a difference. Your kind donation will help in providing shelter, food, medicine, veterinary care and love to the rescued dogs.

Your donation is eligible for 250% tax rebate. Kindly provide your name as per NRIC and your tax reference (NRIC/FIN).

Donations received in GivingSG will be pooled with other donations and be used to provide food, medicine, veterinary care and support for the dogs under SOSD's care. Donations may also be used to pay for other operational costs of SOSD's shelters, such as utilities, water, rental and transport costs and costs and expenses of its TNRM programme. This is inclusive of donations raised in all of SOSD's campaigns.
