She was referred to an emergency clinic who specializes in treating cases like Astrid's. We were hopeful that Astrid would not only survive - the vets had recommended several complicated surgeries, in hopes to not only save her life, but also save both the legs that she had broken.
The last 3 months has been gruelling, with some good days and some bad days. Some days it had seemed like amputation of one of the legs was necessary, but the vets had pressed on with treatment, in hopes of giving Astrid the best quality of life in future. With such horrendous injuries, infection was something that had to be manage carefully. Just as she's getting better on her legs on some days, another surgery was necessary to remove the plates to reduce the risk of infection.
Due to the complexity of the treatment, Astrid had to be warded at the hospital this entire time. It's a huge sum of money, but we know it will be worth it, the day Astrid recovers fully and is able to walk comfortably on all fours without needing assistance.
Astrid is just 9 months old, and has already been to the brink of death and back. This wouldn't have been possible if not for you, our amazing supporters. We would like to appeal for your help once more, so that we're able to pay for her medical bills.
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.
