Community Animals
 
 

Community animals (sometimes called stray or street animals), are the cats and dogs living within our environment, whether in the urban areas, or outskirts of Singapore. For many of them, they know no other existence but the streets and housing estates. While concerned individuals may feel that living on the streets is not safe or desirable, this is where many of our community animals are happiest – being free to roam, but having a food source and caregivers nearby. Many dogs and cats have dedicated caregivers.

Occasionally, the SPCA receives calls from the public to pick up community animals in their neighbourhood. However, our focus is the rescue of sick, injured, abandoned and abused animals. The SPCA does not round up healthy community dogs and cats and believes that sterilisation is the most effective and humane way of keeping the population in check and ultimately, reducing the population, whilst allowing the animals to live out their lives. Removing these animals from the neighbourhood on the other hand, will only encourage others to move in to fill the vacuum. More on our sterilisation programme, can be read here http://www.spca.org.sg/services_sterilisation.asp

You can recognise a sterilised cat as it is ear-tipped. As a member of the public, you can help the SPCA save more lives by looking after an animal which is resident in your neighbourhood – through responsible feeding, arranging for its sterilisation (which is free at SPCA) and ensuring that it is in good health.
