ACRES is a pioneering charity and Institution of Public Character, founded by Singaporeans in 2001 with the aim of advocating an end to animal cruelty in Asia. We hope to create a caring and socially responsible society where animals are treated as sentient beings.

We have five focus areas: Tackling Wildlife Crime, Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation, Humane Education, Community Outreach and Promoting Cruelty-Free Living.

This year, ACRES is focusing on promoting public awareness on living in harmony with our native wildlife, so as to reduce the need of wildlife rescue and to keep our wildlife protected in Singapore. We would like to urge your team to work around ideas to support this goal of ours, i.e. to enable public to be aware of the threats our wildlife is facing currently, what they should do upon encountering wildlife, and how they can support ACRES in protecting our native wildlife.

We rely heavily on public support and contribution to continue our mission of ending the exploitation of all animals. We need funds to continue our 24-hour rescue efforts, care for the rescued illegal wildlife at our centre, publish reports and most importantly, raise awareness through educational materials and campaigns so as to enable a better life for all.

 

Intended use of funds through the YFC 2018 programme
Our monthly expenditure costs around SGD 60k to SGD 70k. These amount involved paying utility bills, staffs salary, maintenance of 3 vehicles (including insurance & petrol), food for the animals, medical bills for the rescued animals, office items, and the overall maintenance of ACRES premises.
