SPCA’s Foster Care programme is for very young or sick animals to receive dedicated care in a home environment!
By helping to foster animals until space becomes available in our shelter and/or the animals are older and better able to cope with kennel life, you are helping us save more lives.
Requirements: 18 years and above. If you are between 18 and 21 years old, a parent/guardian’s consent is required.
Sign up here.
The act of fostering requires a readiness to dedicate your time to giving love and care to an animal in need. We require our fosterers to be with the animal for the most part of the day and preferably to have had experience in looking after young or sick animals.
We also require our fosterers to be prepared to collect the foster animal from our shelter and bring it back for any check-ups by the vet during the foster period. We will provide some food, a litter tray (for cats), and a carrier for the start of the fostering period. However, we ask that any subsequent food be supplied by the fosterer so we can better allocate our limited resources.
We will provide medication for the animal (if needed) during the fostering period. The fosterer must also remain contactable so that we can get regular updates on the animal’s health and well-being.
Our animals are usually cared for in a foster home for a period of one month to three months, depending on the animal’s needs and circumstances in the shelter.
Fostering an animal is not easy, and it may involve considerable cleaning up as the animals are usually young and may not be toilet-trained. They may also be very playful and may chew on your possessions.
The toughest part of being a fosterer is having to return the animal to our shelter for adoption after you have become emotionally attached to it over the fostering period.
This is an educational visit which involves an educational talk that covers the work we do, followed by interaction with the animals in the shelter and sale of SPCA merchandise.
- Limited to 20 people per visit (min. 15 people)
- Duration of visit is 1½ hours
We are more than happy to visit your company/association, with an informative talk to help raise awareness for the animal welfare cause. We would also be delighted to bring our pet care information and merchandise to help raise funds for the animals.
- Available weekday mornings or afternoons
- No limit to the number of persons attending (the maximum capacity depends on the venue). However, a minimum of 20 persons is required
- Duration of talk is approximately one hour
- Will require an projector, laptop and a microphone (for a bigger crowd)
Donate items to our needy animals
We usually require clean towels, medical supplies, and newspapers. Used items are accepted, provided they’re washed clean with no spiky materials that might injure the animals! Opened dry food packets are fine unless expired.
We do not accept mattresses, clothes, books or raw food. Donations have to be dropped off at SPCA’s reception desk (50 Sungei Tengah road).
If you are unsure of the items we need, leave a general enquiry in our contact form.
On behalf of the animals, thank you!
One of the most valuable ways you can help in continuing our animal welfare work for years to come is by leaving us a gift (bequest) in your will. e.g. bequeathing a percentage of, or one of the policies from your life insurance proceeds, CPF monies and other movable or immovable assets to the SPCA.
Usually what is needed are our UEN number: S61SS0060B and address: 50 Sungei Tengah Road. Singapore 699012. If you wish to leave a gift, please email [email protected] or call 62875355 ext 618 and we will be more than glad to help you.
Thank you for your support in allowing us to continue promoting kindness and preventing cruelty to animals.
