Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Sep 2021, 11:59 PM

My name is Marie Choo. I was a Marketing professional who used to work in the luxury, fashion and lifestyle industry.

I now work in the social service sector to make the community a better place for those in need of support.

I am also known mainly for my work as The Dog Alchemist, a dog behaviourist and trainer who rehabilitates dogs, as well as a lifestyle athlete.

I started the I RUN FOR RESCUE DOGS movement back in 2014, in which I run races to raise awareness and funds for the no-kill dog shelters in Singapore. To date, this movement has raised over $120,000 to help a few no-kill animal shelters over the past 7 years.

In Feb 2020, it was my last race before the pandemic hit. I attempted 100miles in New Zealand but had to drop out at 121km due to hypothermia.

For 2021, I am not running any race but I hope my friends who want to buy me cakes, meals and pressies can consider donating the money to feed the dogs at Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter. Thank you.

About The Charity

Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter Ltd (OSCAS) is an animal welfare charity registered in 2014 and devoted to caring for a hundred rescued strays in Singapore. All of the dogs in the shelter were rescued from the streets or from being culled. Currently, a hundred Singapore Specials call the shelter their home before their right families come along.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
