Support Our Animal Welfare Agencies
There are about 7,000 stray dogs in Singapore and the numbers are increasing. Whilst there is currently no public data on the total number of stray animals in Singapore, a 2018/19 annual report by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) indicates that the organisation undertook 553 cruelty and welfare investigations and rescued 1,710 animals in that year.
Abandoned animals live in harsh and difficult conditions. They face the risk of traffic accidents, starvation and disease. For instance, stray dogs who return to their feral instincts can potentially pose a danger to the public, especially in packs. They are also a potential carrier of diseases like rabies. This is why dog shelter and dog adoption efforts in Singapore are critical.
When treated with care in a proper home, animals can provide comfort and solace. Adopting and caring for an animal combats loneliness, reduces stress, lowers your risk of diseases and illnesses such as heart diseases and allergies. Your donations can help animal shelters in Singapore to treat stray animals with care and provide them with the most comfortable home.
