GONE OVER THE RAINBOW BRIDGE
Our senior lady Buckaroo left us on 27/9/2015.
Buckaroo played grandma to our younger doggies and even our naughty puppies knew that the most they would give her was a kiss and than watch her from a distance or grandma would get grumpy.
Buckaroo loved chicken, milk bones and sneakily taking milk bones that were left unattended in other kennels.
We will miss this old gem but we know she is happier, stronger and a lot more agile up there in doggie heaven.
Sweet Salad passed away 27/4/15from internal organ failure.

MEDICAL APPEAL: HAILEY (Closed)
(On behalf of HOPE Dog Rescue)
Update March 22'15: We bid a sad goodbye to sweet Hailey of HOPE Dog Rescue. She passed on today after being in a home for the first time in her life. We would like to thank all who donated towards her medical care and for helping her get better.
A special thank you to the folks from Hope Dog Rescue for their love and care for sweet Hailey and for helping her see beyond the awful life of a puppy mill dog.
We bid a teary goodbye to sweet Sasha in Feb 2015.
She has since left us for a better place where we know she will run free and no longer be troubled by her weakening heart.
We never post photos of dogs on their death bed for we choose to remember them happy and healthy. We choose to remember Sasha for the playful lovely girl she was when we first met her on the streets. Thank you Sasha for showing us all the true meaning of love, loyalty and strength. Run free Sasha!
We thought long and hard about how we could bid farewell to a dog that started us off on this path to rescue street animals in need.
We first met Gigi at a heavy vehicle carpark. She was being fed by an elderly feeder, Aunty Lee Chew. Aunty Lee Chew had little money and feeding herself was a struggle, let alone Gigi and a few other street dogs. Gigi was timid, hid under vehicles, got attacked alot and even sustained a huge deep cut on her leg due to heavy machinery which left her scarred.
7 years ago, on the way in to a nearby shelter, Christine, a CAS volunteer ran into Lee Chew. The two got talking, though from very different worlds. Christine decided to take on the role of feeding Gigi on weekdays as her school was nearby. The two continued feeding Gigi, trying to get close to her and possibly look at sterilisation. A pretty scary idea for it was the first time Christine would ever try to get hold of a street dog. Despite their efforts, Gigi remained extremely wary and eventually ended up having a litter. The worst soon came when the authorities were called in to cull Gigi and her babies.
By then, it was a year on. Christine and Marcus who had walked in regularly to feed Gigi were confident of getting hold of her. With the help of Aunty Lee Chew, they got hold of Gigi and three other puppies. Gigi was sterilised, treated for various ailments and brought to a shelter with Elvis, her son who has yet to a home to call his own. The duo were sponsored by Christine and Marcus and eventually moved to the CAS Adoption Center!
Gigi taught us all many lessons. Lessons of love, compassion, perseverance and more. Without Gigi, Christine and Marcus would never have ventured into the world of stray feeding and rescue work. Thank you for teaching us to love and live! We will continue to help street dogs in need and we hope to keep going till every street dog has its home.
Have fun chasing after birdies and playing with the doggies in doggie heaven! We are sure there are tonnes of your favorite Fish for Dog treats there too! We will always love you.
Our Tomato passed on Wednesday Oct 9th 2013 evening due to various health complications.
We were very glad we spent the afternoon with her.
Our dream was to start the CAS shelter where we could house rescued animals till they found their forever home. Tomato was a huge inspiration when it came to this. She was a typical street dog - sick, hungry, out in the heat and cold. We wanted to put an end to this by actively rehoming and sterilising. That was how our paths crossed three years back.
Tomato was brought from the vet clinic to the CAS shelter this afternoon for a quick meet up with her buddies. The lovely girl still had the strength to stand up and move from her bed as her friends looked on, as if they knew the end for her was near. We returned Tomato to the vet where she passed on peacefully around 6pm.
We want to say a special thank you to all who helped us help a street dog that nobody would have taken a second look at. Thank you for loving our Tomato. She left us happy, loved, warm and comfortable. A far cry from her life on the streets. Please continue to support our work so we have no more dogs that suffer like Tomato out on the streets.
Ubin's bill is now closed
Thank you for your kind donationsUpdate 30/07/13 Our brave Ubin Girl passed away today. RIP sweetheart.
Ubin Girl was an accident victim rescued from Pulau Ubin. Life has been a real tragic twist of events for her. She recovered well after the accident but sadly she ended up being plagued by further problems soon after. This included the inability of her body to absorb proteins. She has since been hospitalized and is showing signs of improvement. Sadly, this sweet lady is still a bag of bones and will require much time, funds and effort to get back on her feet again. Ubin has a never say die attitude, we could never turn our backs on her!
We first met Labby cooped up in a chicken pen on a bird farm. She was used to guard the farm and keep rats away. Labby was later 'conveniently disposed off' in a deep canal in Seletar. We rushed over to rescue the sweet dog after a kind friend offered to hang on to her and wait for us.
Labby's life has been a roller coaster ride with lump removal operations and heartworm treatment. Just as we thought it was all over and Labby was now healthy and available for adoption,things took a turn for the worse. Labby had a tumour growth in her mouth, it would have been a tough surgery and we decided not to go ahead with it due to Labby's age and prior operations. Labby was on medicine to keep the growth under control, and to allow Labby to live out her senior years with as minimal pain as possible. She eats very well and still loves human company despite her cruel past.
Labby left us for the rainbow bridge on the morning of Sep 3. RIP
We will always remember her for her sweet nature and fighting spirit, her enthusiasm for her food, her love for walks. Labby never let any of the cruel & unfair things in her life affect her. She was a gentle lady till the end.
