Cat Welfare Society
How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Cat Welfare Society is a charity that advocates the harmonious co-existence of humans and cats. We are at the forefront of humane management of the community cat population and educating the importance of responsible cat ownership.
For years, we have campaigned against the destruction of cats by offering a more effective and long term solution - education and sterilisation. As a charity, we function as a network of dedicated volunteers that work towards the same goal - saving lives everyday.
We are run by volunteers and much of our achievements are the work of our network of selfless caregivers undertake rescue, foster and re-homing programmes to save cats.
We are not funded by the government. We are a registered charity with IPC status that is audited annually and we publish our financial reports on our website.
Over the years, we have introduced a range of community programmes that encourage responsible cat ownership and promote sterilisation versus destruction. Our advocacy and work has led to a series of meaningful government and community partnerships that have been critical to changing how society approaches cat issues. Some of them are:
*Love Cats, Cats Ownership Programme (with MND, Nee Soon Town Council, AVA and HDB)
*Responsible Feeding Programme (with NParks)
*Community Outreach to help Disadvantaged Families with Pets (with HDB and Town Councils)
*Stray Cat Sterilisation Programme (with AVA and Town Councils)
*Humane Case Handling Programme (with AVA, HDB and Town Councils)
The benefits of these programmes are not confined to a sharp reduction in the number of cats culled every year, but its impact on the people. These are:
*Educating young people to respect the weak and helpless who form part of the community
*Encouraging the spirit of volunteerism among Singaporeans
