SO WHICH SHELTERS CAN I CHOOSE TO DONATE TO?
Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter Ltd (OSCAS) is a registered charity devoted to caring for over a hundred rescued stray mixed breeds. These dogs are rescued directly from the streets, industrial estates, parks and urbanisation of jungles to save them from being culled by the local authorities. More than a hundred ‘Singapore Specials’ call OSCAS their home as they wait for their right families to come along.
Nekojam hopes to help OSCAS by collecting food donations for the many dogs that share the shelter premise.
LiFeline was set up in 2013 in support of Aunty T, an independent rescuer, who at the age of 70+ years old, works fiercely and tirelessly to get by to support herself and her rescued home full of cats. When Aunty T’s lease expired, she was left with no choice but to find homes for all of the felines under her care, some of which were getting on in years and stood little chance of finding new caregivers.
LiFeline has since boarded all the cats at commercial catteries, and urged members of the public to help share the cost of giving these cats a roof over their heads, and food to eat. By stepping in, LiFeline has not only helped Aunty T alleviate her financial burden, but also acts as a middleman for adopters to find a cat suited for their homes. As of 2015, the number of cats left at LiFeline’s two catteries stands at 25.
Shelter Address: LiFeline houses its cats in multiple catteries. Donations will be send directly to a volunteer’s residential address and brought to the shelter personally.

Causes for Animals
Causes for Animals Singapore Limited (CAS) is an animal welfare charity set up to support the needs of local animal welfare in Singapore. With over 30 years of experience in animal welfare and rescue, CAS has implemented an adoption and rescue program that has seen a success rate of 98%, alongside a successful stray management program.
CAS has plans in place for proper management of their stray dog packs, puppies, and an adoption centre that houses dogs (and some cats) in need of a period of recovery from illness or injury, and even rehabilitation prior to finding new homes for them.
Action for Singapore Dogs
Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD) was established in December 2000 as a non-profit organization with the mission to improve the welfare of stray and abandoned dogs in Singapore.
ASD conducts many animal welfare related activities and plays an active role in rescuing, fostering and the re-homing of stray and abandoned dogs, advocating sterilization as a means of controlling the stray population, heightening public awareness of the responsibilities involved in pet ownership and highlighting the virtues of our local dogs.

HOPE Dog Rescue
HOPE Dog Rescue is a volunteer run organization that does not operate out of a shelter; individual fosterers work together to help rehabilitate and provide temporary shelter and care for Singapore Specials in need.
HOPE Dog Rescue lacks manpower and as such, relies heavily on kind hearted souls to help where they can in the areas of fostering, donating, or contributing supplies such as old towels, leashes and medication to their cause.
Shelter Address: HOPE Dog Rescue does not have a shelter address. As such, all donations will be sent to a designated volunteer’s address and distributed to individual fosterers internally.
