The male brown dog, circled in the video, was struck by a taxi on Sunday 4 August at 10:27pm, along Admiralty Road West, near the junction of Woodlands Avenue 8. The driver did not stop to render assistance and the police are currently investigating.

The driver with the footage called SPCA and our rescue officer brought the dog back to our clinic. Our veterinary team attended to the dog and found that his hind area was paralysed. X-rays revealed a fracture of the spine. A group of rescuers have transferred the dog to a private clinic for further assessment.

SPCA is appealing for the taxi driver and eye witnesses to step forward, including the driver of the silver van. If you have any information, please contact the SPCA at 6287 5355 ext 9 or email inspector@spca.org.sg. Information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence. We are also hoping for information from the taxi company.

The Road Traffic Act states that drivers who hit a dog and fail to stop and render assistance can face a fine of up to S$3,000 or a jail term of up to a year.
