Causes For Animals (Singapore) Ltd
Causes for Animals (Singapore) Limited (“CAS”) is an animal welfare charity set up in 2013 to support the needs of local animal welfare in Singapore. CAS employs programmes and policies to promote best practice involving ethical, sustainable and compassionate treatment of these animals.
CAS believes that working hand in hand amicably with various stakeholders (including Government agencies, private organisations, stray feeders, etc) is vital and is also one of the best means to benefit more local street dogs and cats.
Companion Animals are part of every community in Singapore and our programmes are developed to provide aid and support for as many pet lovers as we can.
We want to be part of a community where there is wider acceptance of companion animals with humane animal management policies. Our ultimate aim is to strive towards a Stray free Singapore through sterilisation and adoption programmes that run consistently to ensure street animals have homes or a safe haven to call their own over time.
Intended use of funds through the YFC 2019 programme
Three main areas require funding and support
1) Stray Management Programme
Our CAS Volunteers actively manage a Stray Management (Trap, Neuter and Release) Programme in various parts of the island including Tampines, Tuas, Lorong Halus, Punggol, Seletar and Penjuru. We aim to limit unwanted litters and ultimately in the long term, we hope to stabilise the stray dog packs with no new puppies. Suitable strays will be rehomed via an active adoption and re-homing program, which would gradually reduce the stray dogs’ population in Singapore. Our active Stray Management Programme would be aligned with the islandwide programme implemented by AVA.
To sustain the continued success in the areas we work in, we actively monitor, educate and engage feeders, workers and worksite staff on the importance of keeping packs stable.
We continue to support community feeders by sponsoring the sterilisation fees for both cats and dogs. To date we have sterilised 60 adult cats and 180 dogs. We require sustainable funds to keep this programme going.
2) Medic Aid Cases
We spend a minimum of 00 monthly on medical cases both inhouse and on cases that are brought in my feeders. Vet fees are our highest cost in our operations.
3) The Big Move
We are currently renovating our new site in Sungei Tengah Animal Lodge and require funds to renovate and upkeep the premises in future which is used to house dogs
in transition to their forever homes.
Engaging and involving the YFC participants
Participants will be invited to tour our shelter premises prior to embarking on the programme to better understand our needs.
