Good health is key to the welfare and quality of life of every animal, and while people in Singapore have access to subsidised healthcare, there are no such government run facilities for animals. Veterinary services are also costly and out of reach for some caregivers.

Recognising the need for accessible and affordable healthcare for animals, SPCA runs Singapore's only not-for-profit Community Animal Clinic to provide quality healthcare at subsidised rates for needy animals (rescued and community animals, pets from low income households).

One case seen by the clinic involved a family who had been quoted between $1,500 and $2,000 for treatment for their pet cat, who had a urinary tract obstruction. Unable to afford the fees and having nowhere else to go, they turned to SPCA for help as they did not want to see their beloved pet suffer.

Upon learning the situation, the clinic jumped in and took the cat in for treatment. The cat made a full recovery after treatment and was taken home by the family.

The COVID-19 pandemic has further impacted the finances of animal shelters, community animal caregivers and pet guardians, making it tougher than ever for them to be able to afford private vet fees. As such, the clinic expects the number of needy animals to increase in the upcoming year.

Relying mainly on public donations, your support is critical in helping us continue providing essential healthcare for over 2,000 needy animals each year, saving lives and promoting health.

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.
