Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Sep 2020, 11:59 PM

Team Pawesome is a YFC (Youth For Causes) 2020 Team that is supporting SPCA.

Earlier on this year, we stumbled upon a Straits Time article that talked about how animal welfare organisations were facing problems due to a lack of funding, which hindered them from taking care of the animals in their shelter and raising awareness about animal welfare smoothly. We then did more research and found out that with the implications of the current COVID-19 situation, many of SPCA's external events such as their Gala Dinner have been cancelled, causing their donations to take a significant hit. These negative effects, coupled with our love for animals, hence propelled us towards working with YFC in order to raise funds and awareness for the SPCA.

SPCA is not a government agency and does not receive government grants/ funding; they rely mainly on public donations and fundraisers for their operations. The SPCA requires $3 million annually to operate. This includes $600,000 to operate the Community Animal Clinic at SPCA, which is Singapore's only non-profit animal clinic that provides quality healthcare to needy animals at subsidised rates.

Any amount of donations will go a long way :) Thank you for reading!

About The Charity

COVID-19 Update: Fundraising has become exceptionally difficult, with major events being cancelled and essential services still running 24/7. We are appealing for help for our needy animals to receive critical emergency care.

The SPCA is a registered non-profit animal welfare charity with IPC status, and our two main objectives are to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals.

Relying mainly on kind donations from the public and fundraising, the Society does not receive any government funding or grants, to support the shelter and clinic, inspectorate work and animal rescue services, as well as other initiatives such as our foster care programme, sterilisation programme for community animals, and education and outreach efforts.

Over 100 animals are taken in by the Society every month. Most of these animals are abandoned, unwanted, abused, sick/injured or lost. Our officers have rescued numerous animals, like Gemma, Aiden and Cookie, across Singapore (see above video).

To carry out our animal welfare work, we require over S$2,400,000 annually.

You can make a difference to the animals.

Your kind donation will directly impact upon our operations in providing shelter, food, medical attention and love to the rescued animals that walk through our doors each day.


Your donations are eligible for 250% tax deduction.
