Dr. Siew Tuck Wah was enjoying a career as a successful cosmetic surgeon, at the renowned Sloane Clinic for aesthetic medicine, when volunteering with a rescue organization completely changed his life plans.

The doctor’s love for dogs started in college after his roommate took one in. Later in life, Dr. Siew began volunteering with Save Our Street Dogs Singapore (SOSDS), an organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming stray dogs.

For the past four years, he has served as the organization’s president, however, Dr. Siew wanted to do more. Unable to take on more volunteer work while balancing a heavy case load, he decided this year to follow his true calling and left plastic surgery behind to focus entirely on his dog-saving efforts.

“The world can do with one less doctor who makes people more beautiful…but SOSD cannot do without this final push,” Dr. Siew wrote on Facebook.

It’s an incredible thing for someone to leave behind a lucrative, stable career to volunteer for animals, but his efforts are desperately needed. Singapore is home to roughly 5,000 stray dogs in need of food, care, and a loving family. Animals on the street are often looked at as a nuisance and treated like trash. Luckily, Dr. Siew is working to give these dogs a chance at life and help spread awareness of their plight.

To learn more about Dr. Siew’s work and help support his efforts, visit SOSD Singapore on Facebook and YouTube.
