Actions for Singapore Dogs

Improving the welfare of stray and abandoned dogs in Singapore.


Action for Singapore Dogs Society (ASD) was established in December 2000, with a mission of improving the welfare of stray and abandoned dogs in Singapore. We do this through our rescuing and rehoming efforts, advocating sterilisation as a means of controlling the stray dog population and promoting responsible pet ownership. We are also working towards changing perceptions of our local cross breed dogs - the ‘Singapore Specials’ should be recognised as a unique breed epitomising the cosmopolitan fabric of Singapore, and be accorded the same respect that pure breed dogs enjoy.
