Latest Updates

Latest Updates (30th April 2010)
Dear friends and fellow animal-lovers, this is the latest update:

1) 3 dogs have passed away and left us for a better place. We now have a total of 75 dogs in the kennel, of which 49 dogs are still inside awaiting a good home. 26 have been either fostered or adopted to date.

2) Fostering option will only be available for dogs which are sick or with medical conditions, as we believe they are the ones most needing an urgent change of environment. All others will remain in the kennels to provide them with a greater opportunity to be viewed by potential adopters during visitings. Fostered dogs will have their pictures posted on a board in the kennel for potential adopters to look at, as well.

3) Please note that there will be No photography in the kennel. This applies to both volunteers and visitors. Only Davis KK, Woon, Monica and Nicholas are authorized to take photos. Thank you for your kind understanding.

4) Please refrain from bringing your children into the premises.

5) Fosterers needed for dogs with medical conditions. Please contact us at (subject - Fostering) to find out how you can contribute.

6) Thank you everyone for your generous donations to date.

We want to invite you to journey with 3 of our 75 rescued dogs as they leave the life they have known to enter a world that they have never experienced.

A picture is worth a thousand words so most of their journey will be captured in pictures.

Watch out for updates in the coming weeks.....

DOGMILLREHOMERS: Help save the 75 dogs!


A breeder/owner at Pasir Ris wanted to close operations and sell his existing stock of 75 dogs to other breeders. Concerned dog rescuers banded together to save the dogs. They bought over the dogs, rented the place for a month to build up the dogs with the plan of finding them good adoptive homes.

A group of volunteers have been going there for the past few days to clean up the place, wash the dogs, feed the dogs, send the dogs to vets for help.


1 Many of the dogs have skin problems, tick fever, are suffering from malnuitrition etc.Several need medical care. We are still in the process of sending the dogs for checkups.

2 There are no pups for adoption

3 These are 'used dogs' (used for breeding) and they have been traumatized. They need a lot of tender loving care from loving homes.

4 Many are HDB sized . Some are bigger.

5 All dogs will be sterilised before adoption

6 There will be adoption fees. These will go to support the medical and sterilisation/ other costs to help the dogs. But it is strictly NON PROFIT.

7 No one below 18 need apply to adopt the dogs

8 Viewings for adoption will be strictly by appointment with the team leaders by emails only.

  • No instant adoption on the spot.
  • Interviews will be conducted.
  • Weekends 15 min slots, Weekdays half an hour slots. 15 mins grace will be given for late comers when they come to view the dogs. (thereafter, rescheduling is needed)

1 FINANCE: A new bank account has been opened for this rescue project
There will be strict accountability.

Finances will be primarily for food, shelter upkeep and medical bills. (When volunteers first came to the shelter, they found only Mama-lemon washing liquid and water hose for cleaning the place....and only plain rice for the dogs.) Volunteers have since been bringing and cooking food for the dogs
