The final bill now is $542. Please help to donate to this poor dog. Anyone who has seen River will definitely pity him. Having a terrible skin condition already made him uncomfortable and painful. Now this make it worse. The vet mentioned that he has Demodex, and apparently there is a treatment available now that may be able to help him. But, again, $$ is an issue. If there is any leftover donation, we hope to use it on River's treatment.
If you have enquiries, pls feel free to PM me or contact me at 81023019. You may also visit River at the shelter. But we'll have to walk you in personally.
During the amputation
Shelter Dog rescues and shelters come in many sizes and fill different functions within the community. Some dog shelters hold dogs for three to ten days before euthanizing them in order to prepare space for additional strays and unwanted pets. Other "no kill" dog shelters keep their wards - bathing them, feeding them, giving them medical attention - until a loving family adopts them. Unfortunately, this type of shelter must limit the quantity of dogs it accepts due to spatial and financial constraints.
The Doggie Rescue Shelter (DRS) is one such shelter. What began at the beginning of the millenium, DRS has since been home to over 70 of our very own Singapore Specials.
From early 2001 to Nov 2007, the shelter was privately run by two sisters – Jessie and Elsie, who have a passion for helping stray and abandoned dogs and providing them with a better life filled with safety, security and love. Now, Doggie Rescue Shelter (Singapore) is officially registered as a non-profit organization.
More than physical labours, the two sisters are the main financial providers of DRS. In order to continue maintaining the basic living standards of the rescued dogs, DRS relies greatly on the aid of the public and welcomes any sum of financial contributions.
