Our Campaign Story

ends 25 Jun 2018, 11:59 PM

Once a carefree and energetic doggy, Bacon can no longer run around the factory's premises like he used to. It was last August when Bacon's feeder noticed that his rear legs were constantly trembling. A trip to the vet and an X-ray revealed no findings, and he was put on fish oil daily since. Sadly, his condition did not improve with time.

The symptoms worsened, and the pain soon became unbearable. Bacon would often whimper and whine, and sometimes he would even cower at the same spot for hours, unable to move due to excruciating pain. His immobility has also made him an easy bully target for the other dogs. A recent visit to the vet has confirmed that Bacon is suffering from a ruptured ligament of both knees, and requires 2 separate surgeries to repair each knee.

Bacon is now temporarily housed by a fosterer to prevent aggravation to his wounds from rubbing against the rough cement factory floor. This also helps to keep the poor boy away from the other dogs' bullying, and he's currently given daily painkillers to get by. We really want to help him relieve his pain, but the estimated surgical fees are far too hefty for the feeder to bear. Hence, we are appealing to all kind souls to contribute to his surgical fund, a total of $4,755 is needed.

No amount is too small, and any contribution will be greatly appreciated. Please help Bacon get well again.

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.
