Following its successful debut in 2017, JAZZ FOR DOGS is back for the second time with a bigger and better line up of programme highlights for all! Packed with an impressive line up with some of the most talented jazz artistes in Singapore – Anne Weerapass, Carol Gomez, Lily Hargrove, Rob Collins, Skye Sirena, Aaron Lee’s Jazz Quartet, the MGS Guitar Ensemble and The Raindogs – you can expect a relaxing evening with your paw pals having a picnic at the Singapore Botanic Gardens and bonding over good food and music.
JAZZ FOR DOGS is a unique musical evening of jazz and a main fund-raising event organised by Action for Singapore Dogs Society’s (ASD). JAZZ FOR DOGS was first held in 2017 and attracted an audience of over 1800 people and at least 300 dogs. This year, ASD hopes to beat its previous record by aiming to have an attendance of 2000 people and 400 dogs at the concert.
Admission is free for all whether you are an owner of a dog or simply love dogs and jazz. All are welcome.
To complete the JAZZ FOR DOGS (JFD) experience, attendees are encouraged to order the JFD picnic basket worth $200 at only $88 nett. The picnic basket which is good for two is packed with goodies for human and dog consumption, including a limited edition picnic mat. Food and drink items include wine, cookies, sandwiches, muffins and finger foods. Human grade home cooked meals with the option of pork or beef from Furry’s Kitchen can also be ordered at only $10 per portion. Orders can be made via http://bit.ly/jfd2019. You are encouraged to order in advance to avoid disappointment!

Visitors to JAZZ FOR DOGS will also get to meet some of its rescued puppies who will serve as furry ambassadors for an outreach programme to educate the public on the positive aspects of Trap-Neuter-Release-Manage (TNRM) to the community as a whole.
ASD’s goal this year is to raise $100,000 to support its Trap-Neuter-Release-Manage (TNRM) efforts. The 5-year nationwide TNRM programme was launched in November 2018 to humanely reduce the stray dog population. To date, close to 150 strays have been trapped and released or rehomed. The expenditure for each TNRM dog can amount to $350 or more, mainly on transportation, trapping equipment, and medical treatment and boarding for sick or injured dogs.
