Save our Street Dog

FlagDayPoster2013_s

Save Our Street Dogs (SOSD) is a non-profit charity organization where our mission is to save street dogs and give them a chance in life by rehabilitating and re-homing them, in turn giving them a useful role in our community. We rely only on ad-hoc donations from the public to sustain our operating costs, consisting mainly of rescue work, veterinary bills and the rent of our existing shelter located at Pasir Ris Farmway 2. We are also working on a nationwide sterilization project which is endorsed by Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (“AVA”). SOSD is the only Animal Welfare Group that has obtained in-principle endorsement from AVA to proceed with the sterilization of street dogs in Singapore. The costs of the project (S$1.2 million) have to be borne by SOSD.

 

We are currently in the midst of planning for our inaugural nation-wide SOSD Flag Day on 10 November 2013, and as such, we are actively sourcing for volunteers to sell flags on that day.
