Our Campaign Story

She looks tough. She acts tough. But all she wants is some TLC. (Cue your favourite K-drama song.)

7-year-old street dog Xiao Bai unfortunately crossed paths with a truck. She was rescued by @SOSD and subsequently referred to Beecroft. Although she was on pain relief, Xiao Bai hated being in the dog ward alone and would constantly call out for attention (yes, that's her in photo 2, caught in the middle of a "Wooo").

It's hard to ignore her soulful eyes and woeful cries, so our nurses allocated a hotspot for her at the Emergency and Critical Care room where she could feel safe and still be one with the pack (photo 3). Xiao Bai loved all the scratchies on her chest!

A few days later, surgical specialist Dr Patrick Maguire worked on her hind leg amputation and Xiao Bai was soon out of the operating room where she was monitored (and cuddled) by surgical nurse Veron. When Xiao Bai's condition stabilised, she was moved to the dog ward for recovery where her new-found medical friends cheered her on with words of encouragement and ear-rubs.

Xiao Bai has since been discharged and is currently under the care of SOSD. We hope she soon finds her forever home with unlimited tender, loving care.

Xiao Bai's injuries were extensive, and required a CT scan and multiple surgeries, so that she can have a good quality of life after this ordeal. The total bills are expected to come up to $18,500. Please donate generously if you'd like to help her!

About Campaign

#Applied for Dollar-for-Dollar Matching Grant by TOTE Board Enhanced Fundraising Programme

Thank you for your continuous support for our work through the years. It is only with your donations, that we are able to continue caring for the 60 dogs at our shelter at The Animal Lodge, 30 dogs with fosterers, 150 dogs at our shelter in Jurong Island and even more strays still roaming out there.

Many of our original rescues have been adopted, but there are some that have stayed with us through the years due to difficulties in getting them adopted. This means an ageing population of dogs that we are now looking after.

We have also taken in more old, sick, or injured dogs. With each rescue, depending on their condition, their initial visit to the vet could easily set us back by more than $1,000. If they're ill, and need to be warded, the vet bills climb steadily with each passing day that they spend at the vet for proper care and treatment.

Do donate if you can, so we can continue to help these dogs in need. Thank you!

About The Charity

SOSD is committed to enhancing the welfare of Singapore's street dogs. Our mission is to eliminate animal cruelty and abandonment, improve animal and human lives, and enhance animal welfare through education, rescue, and advocacy efforts.

At SOSD, we rely on the public's generosity to support our shelters located at Sungei Tengah and Jurong Island. Your contribution can make a real difference in the lives of rescued dogs, providing them with shelter, food, medicine, veterinary care, and most importantly, love.

Donations made through GivingSG will be combined with other contributions to provide food, medicine, and veterinary care, as well as support for dogs under SOSD's care. Donations may also be used to cover operational expenses for our shelters, including utilities, water, rental, transport costs, and expenses associated with our TNRM program. This applies to all SOSD campaigns.

When you donate to SOSD, your information will be automatically submitted to IRAS. Thank you for considering a donation to support our mission and make a difference in the lives of our furry friends.
