World Animal Day 2018
 
 

Date: 6 and 7 October 2018 (Saturday and Sunday)
Time: 11am to 5pm
Venue: SPCA - 50 Sungei Tengah Road (How do I get to SPCA? / How do I get to SPCA with my pet?)

World Animal Day is an annual celebration of the important role that animals play in our lives. It is celebrated internationally on 4 October but this year, we will be celebrating the event on the weekend of 6 and 7 October (Saturday and Sunday). As animals are increasingly becoming an integral part of our society, we would like to put this year’s focus on Responsible Pet Ownership.

Whether you are keen to adopt, want to do your part to help the animals, here with your furry friend, or to join in the celebrations, there is something for you! 

 

EVENT INFORMATION

 

----- ADOPT, DON’T BUY -----


Keen to adopt an animal? Having an animal as a pet is a huge commitment and should not be taken lightly as the welfare of the animal lies in your hands. To begin your journey as a responsible pet owner, you have to be prepared for what you are about to commit to, and the lifetime responsibilities that come with having a pet.


PUBLIC EDUCATION ZONE

Our Animal Ambassadors are ever ready to enlighten you on the responsibilities of owning a pet, and the requirements various animals have. By educating yourself, you become aware of what you are need to do before taking an animal on as a pet, and being a responsible pet owner. We aim to spread more awareness about animal welfare and lower the number of animals which are neglected or abandoned every day.


ADOPT OUR ANIMALS

World Animal Day will be a great opportunity for you to meet and interact with our shelter animals, and it is also a chance for them to find their forever homes. If you are a potential adopter, our Adoption Counsellors will be glad to assist you in meeting The Pawfect One for you and your family.

 

----- HOW YOU CAN HELP-----

Besides adoption, there are other ways you can help us care for these animals. Here are some ways in which you can help:


FOSTERING AN ANIMAL

On top of rescuing animals which are sick or injured, we constantly have kittens and puppies brought to us. The shelter is not an ideal environment for these animals to recover and grow. Hence, we are constantly on the lookout for potential fosterers who are willing to open their doors (and hearts) for these animals to recuperate in a home environment. The fosterers care for these animals for a short period of time until they are healthy and ready to be put up for adoption. Our fosterers will be more than happy to share their stories to encourage more to come on board as a part of our fostering programme.


SALE OF SPCA MERCHANDISE

Look forward to a variety of SPCA merchandise which will be for sale too! From plushies to trinkets such as bookmarks and keychains, there is something for everyone (even the animals). All proceeds from sale of SPCA merchandise will go directly towards helping our shelter animals, so your support is truly appreciated. You may take a look at our merchandise on our online store.

We will be launching our SPCA 2019 calendar, which will be exclusively sold at our event. 

 


DONATE VIA GIRO

Did you know that SPCA is not funded by the government and that we require around $2.4 million to run the shelter every year? We have managed to come this far thanks to kind individuals like yourself who choose to donate to the SPCA. As a result, we are able to help the animals. To be able to do more for the animals, we sincerely request for you to become a GIRO donor so we can continue to do so. Moreover, individuals that sign up as GIRO donors on World Animal Day will get attractive goodie bags!


DONATE PET FOOD ONLINE

We are pleased to work with Future Commerce this year to introduce the PetCa mobile application to you. It will be launched in conjunction with World Animal Day 2018, and there will be an in-app donation option available for users. Enjoy $5 off for every purchase of $25, and $10 off for every purchase of $50. Definitely a win-win situation we say!
