FRIENDS FOR LIFE: 19-YEAR-OLD MILO In 2019, SPCA distributed ‘paw-neer generation’ packages to senior dogs and the oldest dog found was a 19-year-old Dachshund named Milo. Late last year, Milo passed away from age-related illness. Despite their heartbreak, Milo’s owners hope to inspire others to keep their companions for life. Mr Ono: “We fell in love with Milo when he was ~3 months old in Tokyo, in July 2000. Milo warmed up our home and connected us with neighbours with his adorable l...

SPCA VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT “I work from 6am to 6pm on weekdays as a gold trader but no amount of money can compare to the immense joy I feel when volunteering at SPCA. For a long time, I followed the good work SPCA did for community animals in Singapore. So when I decided it was time for me to start giving back more actively, SPCA was my number one choice. My life’s primary value is compassion. Every day, I try to incorporate that into everything I do. So when it comes to caring for these a...

WOUNDED CAT’S AMAZING RECOVERY *GRAPHIC* Godfather was rescued with a severe necrotic wound, which exposed his tail bone. He was found extremely dehydrated and emaciated and his tail severely damaged by a bacterial infection.

 An SPCA officer rescued this kitten from a shopping mall’s loading bay! His limbs were stuck in a drain and were covered with sticky glue, possibly from a pest control company’s rodent glue trap that was found beside the drain. Luckily, a security guard called us for help. At SPCA, our veterinary team removed the glue and our inspectors reported the incident to AVS. Glue board traps have caused multiple accidents in the past and not all animals are l...

DON’T MAKE PETS WEAR MASKS (COVID-19 ADVISORY) 🙅😷 As we battle the COVID-19 outbreak, concerned pet owners might be tempted to make their pets wear masks. Our vets strongly advise against doing so as this is unnecessary and comes with risks. On top of possibly causing significant discomfort, obscuring an animal’s mouth with a mask will hinder the animal from dispelling heat and could cause a serious heat injury. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), there is no eviden...

HAPPY TALES “We took in Chachou in August 2019, when she was so tiny and only 6 weeks old. We were only supposed to be her foster family for two weeks but eventually decided to adopt her. It was our best decision ever! We never regretted it; she is such a cheeky, playful and cuddly kitten. We love her so much. In November 2019, we moved back to our home country, France, and took Chachou along with us. She was great during the flight and is now discovering the cold French winter. We love her...

THANK YOU for making 2019 an unfur-gettable year. We hit two major milestones last year: we reopened our upgraded Community Animal Clinic and saw the nationwide dog TNRM (Trap-Neuter-Release-Manage) sterilisation programme go into full swing. Over the years, we have changed lives through initiatives such as sterilisation programmes, lobbying for policy change, expanding our premises and enhancing our medical facilities. Our services cover 24/7 emergency rescues, cruelty & welfare investigat...

Bubu, a Syrian hamster with a slipped disc, was abandoned in a toilet at the SPCA in a neon green bag. One of our staff has since adopted him. This year, as we celebrate the Year of the Rat, please do not get rodents on impulse. After 2008’s Year of the Rat, SPCA Singapore saw an increase in hamsters being given up for a few years after. Numbers increased from a yearly average of 300+ abandoned & surrendered hamsters to over 500 in 2010 and more than 600 in 2011. Many animals are dumped wh...

DOG RESCUED WITH MAGGOT-INFESTED EARS In August 2018, Harvey was rescued with severe, maggot-infested ears. Our veterinary team worked hard over 6 months to treat him. As his ear infection persisted despite valiant efforts, we decided to send samples from his ear to an overseas laboratory and discovered he had a multidrug-resistant bacteria in both ears. One of his ears had to be amputated. With Amber Compounding Pharmacy, we customised medications for him and after a year of treatment at SPCA...

Resorts World Sentosa Dolphins Brought In For ‘human Entertainment’ & ‘corporate Profits’: SPCA
17th Dec 2019, by SPCA Singapore

RELEASE RWS DOLPHINS In a recent viral video, a dolphin was seen repeatedly banging its head against the wall at S.E.A Aquarium, Resorts World Sentosa (RWS). For years, SPCA and ACRES have campaigned against their captivity, but to no avail. Four of the 27 RWS dolphins that were caught from the wild have died so far. In 2019, World Animal Protection called for the public to avoid Dolphin Island at Resorts World Sentosa, highlighting their concerns in a report titled ‘The Show Can’t Go On...

SPCA XMAS WISHLIST 2019 If good boys and girls deserve presents from Santa, we’re sure our animals deserve all the love in this world.

This Christmas, help over 200 needy animals a month by funding their clinic and shelter supplies. SPCA’s Community Animal Clinic requires ~$600,000 per year to operate and our team sees over 20 animals daily. We are not government-funded and re...

HDB’s CAT BAN The SPCA shared its views in The Straits Times, explaining why this rule needs to be repealed. Cats have been banned in HDBs since the first flats were built. There are already many responsible pet owners keeping cats in HDB flats without causing nuisance to their neighbours. We feel that lifting the ban, setting rules on responsible cat ownership, and implementing a microchipping & registration scheme, will improve cat management and welfare in Singapore. If we ban cats and ...
