Adopt, Don't Shop!

Fundraising Campaign for Exclusive Mongrels

The Social Space x Exclusively Mongrels 🐾

The Social Space has always worked towards supporting underprivileged communities - and this includes our precious furry friends too! As a pet-friendly cafe, it’s not rare for us to find lovely pets basking in the sun with their humans at our outdoor seats ☀️ We're always happy to welcome furry friends of all shapes and sizes!

This June and July Holidays, we want to invite YOU (and even your fur babies) to support causes that rescue, rehabilitate and rehome doggies that need a little more help in finding their forever home. We’ve got a lot planned out to make this campaign not just meaningful, but also paw-somely fun for you!

We will be working with Exclusively Mongrels 🐾, a non profit organisation that specifically focuses on rehabilitating and rehoming stray mongrels - working as the bridge between various organisations, fosterers, and adopters. Exclusively Mongrels was founded by three dog lovers, all with the same aim of raising awareness about the circumstances of mongrels in Singapore.

What are mongrels?

Simply put, mongrels are mixed-breed dogs. As stray dogs continue to procreate and produce offspring, new and unrecognisable breeds come about. In Singapore, mongrels have their own name - the Singapore Specials.

Singapore Specials don’t have the best reputation. Many assume that they are dirty and/or aggressive and this harmful perception toward these dogs only decreases the likelihood of them getting the help they need. Mongrels are also less likely to be adopted due to the negative stereotypes many have of them, which is what Exclusively Mongrels is trying to combat. You too can play a part in helping these dogs find a loving home for the rest of their dog years!

❤️ Virtual Adoption Drive ❤️

Why go to a pet shop when there are homeless puppies who need your love? Singapore has hundreds of mongrels in need of homes. If nobody adopts them, they get put to sleep after a life on the streets. These guys deserve better. They deserve a roof over their heads, proper food and more belly rubs.

Adopt to give them a better life.

24 & 25 JUNE 2023


On 24 & 25 June, we held our very first Doggie Day Out at our Kreta Ayer outlet, and we had a bark-tastic time meeting the #FurryFriendsOfTSS!

More than just a weekend of fun, this event was organised in partnership with Exclusively Mongrels to raise funds and increase awareness about their efforts to rescue and rehome local stray mongrels.
