Project SOUND: Sterilisation and Treatment of Dogs on Pulau Ubin
In 2014, SOSD started Project SOUND (Sterilisation of Ubin and Neighbouring Dogs), a project to continue the good work of Animal Welfare Groups like Animal Lovers League, to sterilise the community dogs on Pulau Ubin for population control. Recent cases of dog abandonment on the island threaten to destabilise the population, and hence, we have to act fast to keep the population stable.
In addition, dogs are vaccinated to protect them against deadly viruses such as Distemper; and medical care rendered if required. We have already evacuated several dogs to mainland Singapore for treatment of injuries and illnesses.
2015 will see Project Sound proceed in full swing – with sterilisation of more dogs. Such a project requires a large amount of funding. Volunteers are currently conducting a population survey to estimate the stray dog population. The estimated amount needed to fund the project is $50,000.
