Description of Organization

ACRES is an animal welfare advocacy organisation, driven by our concern for animals, with a mission to create a caring and socially responsibly society where animals are treated as sentient beings. We strongly believe in promoting community involvement in addressing animal protection issues and in building partnerships with all related bodies to improve animal welfare. Our mission is to create a caring and socially responsible society where animals are treated as sentient beings. This is achieved through our five focus areas, namely; Tackling the Illegal Wildlife Trade, Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation, Humane Education, Community Outreach and Promoting Cruelty-Free Living.

 

Intended use of funds through the YFC 2022 programme

The funds raised will be channelled towards ACRES’s animal protection programmes. These animal protection programmes include the following; 1) Providing 24-hour wildlife rescue services to the community that handles over 1,600 calls to our hotline every month, rescuing over 350 wild animals a month and educating the members of public to avoid unnecessary panic; 2) Conducting humane education programmes to instil compassion and respect for all life through cruelty-free lifestyle choices; 3) Tackling the illegal wildlife trade and animal cruelty in Singapore, through investigation and working closely with the enforcement authorities; and 4) Promoting coexistence with wildlife by conducting site visits and resolving conflict situations for members of public who call us on human-wildlife conflict scenarios (that does not require rescue).
