Description of Organization

Objectives: The objectives of the Society are to prevent cruelty to animals and birds and to promote kindness to animals and birds.

Vision: A compassionate Singapore where all animals are treated with kindness and respect.

Mission: To promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals through education, advocacy and action.

Over 100 animals are taken in by the Society every month. Most of these animals are abandoned, unwanted, abused, sick/injured or lost.

Relying mainly on kind donations, the Society requires approximately ,000,000 annually to carry out our animal welfare work, providing various animal welfare services to the community. These services include:

• Animal cruelty and welfare investigations
• 24-hour emergency animal rescue
• Running a shelter for stray, abandoned and unwanted pets
• Operating Singapore’s only not-for-profit Community Animal Clinic, providing subsidised healthcare to community animals, animals from other animal shelters and pets from low income households
• School based education programmes, and conducted group visits to SPCA
• Education talks, seminars and workshops
• Adoption
• Foster care for young animals
• Lost and found pets
• Providing volunteer opportunities to enhance corporate and community engagement
• Rehoming notice board for personal adoption notices
• Advocacy for wildlife, companion and community animals and animals in the entertainment, fashion, food and laboratory industries

 

Intended use of funds through the YFC 2022 programme

Funds raised through YFC 2022 programme will be used to fund all the services we provide to the community. Funds will also allow us to continue rescuing, treating and rehabilitating animals in need.

 

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.

They will also be invited to participate in our events, if any.
