Description of Organization

“The SPCA is Singapore’s largest and longest-serving animal welfare organisation. We are a registered charity with IPC status. Each year, we help over 5,000 animals through our core services, such as an animal shelter for 150 to 200 animals monthly, a 24-hour rescue hotline for injured, abandoned and unwell animals, Singapore’s only not-for-profit Community Animal Clinic, and an outreach and engagement arm. One of our key focus areas is fostering youth engagement in animal welfare, emphasising the importance of compassion and humane education.

As a non-governmental organisation relying primarily on donations, the support of our donors and partners will make a huge difference in the lives of over 5,000 animals each year.”


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme

The funds will go into defraying the SPCA’s operation costs of at least S million a year, allowing us to continue providing critical animal welfare services to the community. Operation costs include the daily care that goes into looking after our animals, medications, and surgery to help the SPCA animals, community animals, and shelter animals from other animal welfare organisations.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

YFC participants will be taken through an exclusive tour of the SPCA where we share more about our work up close and personal, and instill in them the importance our our cause in animal welfare. Our representative will also work closely with the teams to guide them in implementing their programmes.
