Tabco partnered Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD) to produce a series of portraits of their shelter dogs. Action for Singapore Dogs was established in December 2000 as a non-profit organization with the mission to improve the welfare of stray and abandoned dogs in Singapore. Their various activities and programs include rescuing, fostering and re-homing of stray and abandoned dogs, advocating sterilization as a means of controlling the stray population, heightening public awareness of the responsibilities involved in pet ownership and highlighting the virtues of our local dogs.
Tabco met with ASD founder Ricky Yeo one afternoon in their Kranji compound. Ricky welcomed us with much enthusiasm despite the unforgiving heat of the afternoon sun. He shared with us the routines of a dog shelter worker and the cost and manpower needed to maintain a basic home for more than 100 dogs.
Tabco loves what ASD is doing for stray and abandoned dogs in Singapore and so decided to produce a series of portraits of ASD shelter dogs to show that shelter dogs are as beautiful and intelligent as any other canines. These portraits will be auctioned off at ASD’s 10 anniversary gala dinner in 2012 to raised funds for ASD’s yearly operation cost.
