Intended use of funds through the YFC 2018 programme
We are planning to expand our animal clinic in 2018 to provide more comprehensive and subsidised veterinary services to not only our shelter animals but also to animals in other shelters, community animals and pets from low income households. The upgraded clinic will allow us to tend to animals with more serious injuries in-house rather than sending them to external clinics.

Our clinic will focus on the following areas:
1. Providing preventive healthcare – to prevent the development of disease
2. Treatment and surgery – for sick and injured animals
3. High volume sterilisation surgeries – for humane animal population control and responsible pet ownership.

The funds raised from the YFC 2018 programme will help us to purchase new clinic equipment such as blood testing machines.

 

Engaging and involving the YFC participants
The YFC participants will be invited down to the SPCA and given a tour around our compound to give them more understanding about the work we do. They are more than welcomed to have some first-hand experience and interaction with our shelter animals.
