As a new fundraising initiative, SOSD will be introducing Legacy Love in March 2016 for animal lovers alike to leave an estate for the animals under the care of SOSD. Although relatively new to Singapore, this concept of leaving a legacy to animal welfare groups has already been adopted in many other countries.
A Quick Overview
Current Core Costs in SOSD
- Operating Costs (S$43,000/month)
– SOSD relies on donations from the public to fund operating costs which include boarding the dogs at our shelter, rescue work and vet bills
- Stray Sterilisation Project: Jurong Island, Pulau Ubin (S$150,000/year)
– Short term goal to control and reduce the population of strays via sterilisation
– Long term goal to eliminate the situation of homeless street dogs
- Shelter Relocation (S$10 million)
– SOSD is planning a relocation to accommodate more dogs, and designing and building a new, larger sanctuary will cost $$10 million. With our current lease in Pasir Ris Farmway due in 2016, relocation within the next 2 years is absolutely necessary for us to continue to provide better car and rehabilitation for rescued street animals
- Community engagement initiatives and Number of rescured dogs are growing in scale eg. Healing PAWS, education programs
