Stray Management Appeal 2020 #GivingWeekSG
by Causes For Animals (Singapore) Limited
The CAS Stray Management Programme is targeted at preventing further growth in the already ballooning stray population in Singapore. We cannot rehome as fast we want to as good homes are hard to come by. The only thing left to prevent a growing stray population in Singapore is sterilising the existing population so NO MORE puppies and kittens are born to our cold hard streets with no food, shelter or medical care..........It costs on average $400 to trap, sterilise, hospitalise, vaccinate, deworm and microchip ONE stray dog or community cat. We are unable to continue with our target of 15 dogs and 20 cats per month if we do not have the financial support to do so. This is partially covered by Government subsidies, but we still need YOUR HELP to continue doing what we do. #SG Cares #GivingWeekSG #CityOfGood
Protect Peatlands, Prevent Haze #GivingWeekSG
Peatlands are natural wetlands that cover 3% of our Earth. When partially decomposed plant matter falls to the forest floor, it creates layers of peat over millennia. All the carbon from the plant matter is kept underwater and locked in, which is why peatlands contain more carbon than all the plants and trees in the world! Peatlands are drained for human activities like agriculture, increasing the risks of fires and haze. How does that affect our:
You can help promote health and save lives #GivingWeekSG
Donations made towards this campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $250k, by Tote Board and the Government under the Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme. Good health is key to the welfare and quality of life of every animal. While people in Singapore have access to subsidised healthcare, there are no such government run facilities for animals. Vet services are also costly and out of reach for some caregivers.
Zero Waste School
by Zero Waste SG
Zero Waste School aims to empower stakeholders within schools to care inclusively and practise values-driven environmental education(EE) through a series of activities and thus, moving schools towards a zero waste culture. This programme is developed to help the stakeholders (teachers, students, staff, even parents) achieve practical knowledge of Values-in-Action, through learning how to be sustainable in their waste management practices with a comprehensive management approach in daily school environment, promoting inculcation of habits and mindfulness in the way resources are being used.
Journey to be Wild Again: Rescue, Rehabilitate, Release #GivingWeekSG
Penny, Lenny, Pb and J are rescued common palm civets found orphaned from different wildlife rescue cases by ACRES. They were raised to adulthood from babies, rehabilitated in our wildlife rescue centre and released back to the wild! Rehabilitation is crucial to prepare the wildlife under our care for the wild. From introducing them to the available food sources (native fruits and berries) in the wild to setting up temporary homes enriched with plants, suspended logs and platforms to mimic their natural environment in the wild, deliberate efforts are undertaken to prepare for their survival in the wild.
Medical Fundraising for Rescued Dogs #GivingWeekSG
by Save Our Street Dogs
Here we go again... Running a shelter isn't easy. It definitely isn't cheap. If you own a dog, you will know that all dogs fall sick at some point in their lives. Especially when they're young puppies, and when they're in their golden years. SOSD takes care of dogs of all ages, and we try our best to nurse each one back to health, or provide them with palliative care and the best quality of life possible when prognosis is poor.
