Fellow volunteer, Jennica has been dedicated to helping shelter dogs in Singapore for years, especially the dogs at SOSD Singapore and OSCAS (Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter).

January 27, 2021
We first noticed it in the morning, when instead of having a wet nose and enthusiastic waggy wake-up, we saw our dog sleepily and slowly get up, stretch gently and then limp his way towards us.

Moving Countries with your Pet Series: Singapore to Germany
August 24, 2020
Annika used to volunteer with us at OSCAS (Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter) and we sadly had to say goodbye to her but also happy as she was taking Pepper! Five-year-old Pepper had been through some upsetting times as she was left behind suddenly by her first family, who returned to the UK without her. Fortunately, we found her an initial fosterer so she did not need to return to the shelter that night she was let go. From then on she was fostered by Annika, who fell in love with this smart, easy-going girl and could never ever leave her. Together they flew back to Germany just before Singapore went into lockdown and here is how they did it.
