SPCA Campaigns: NO To Whale Sharks In Captivity.

Whale Shark Campaign in Singapore Whale sharks may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of us, but this animal has been on our radar for quite some time. When Resorts World Sentosa announced in 2006 that a whale shark would be procured and displayed, we joined forces with Nature […]

SPCA Campaigns: Say NO To Fur Products

Fur is for animal – SPCA says “NO” to fur produces. We are partnering CFAF (Change for Animals Foundation) and ACRES (Animal Concerns Research and Education Society) to raise public awareness about the cruelty inherent in all fur production. We are encouraging all our supporters and members of the general public to urge retailers in the country […]

SPCA Campaigns: Stop Puppy Mill Misery

A puppy mill is a large-scale commercial dog breeding operation where profit is given priority over the well-being of the dogs. Many of these facilities mass-produce puppies under substandard conditions; dogs live in cramped, deplorable environments and many of them are diseased and deprived of proper nutrition, medical attention, companionship and socialisation. Poor breeding practices often result […]

Love is Ageless

SPCA Singapore is proud to have embarked on a two-month long campaign with collaborator Hill’s Pet Nutrition Singapore, which ran from September to October 2014. Fittingly named “Love is Ageless”, this campaign was aimed at promoting an appreciation as well as deeper understanding of senior pet/companion animals and of the timelessness of the love, joy […]

Desex In The City

In an effort to reduct unwanted puppies and kittens, the SPCA embarked on a month long initiative in December 2009 to offer pet owners subsidised sterilisation for their cats and dogs, in collaboration with veterinary clinics.  For the past 18 years, the SPCA has also distributed free sterilisation vouchers, which enable people to have stray animals […]

There’s No Better Friend. Adopt A Dog

In mid-May to mid-June 2009, SPCA launched a series of adoption ads at bus shelters and on ZoCards. The objective was to promote the adoption of dogs while emphasising their companionable nature. The ads also appeared on 8-Days, I-S Magazines, TODAY, The New Paper and The Sunday Times. SPCA thanks Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore for […]

The People Behind SPCA

Very little is seen or know about the work carried out by hard-working inspectors, animal rescue officers,  education officers, and animal care assistants. So in 2006 and 2007, the SPCA featured our staff to illustrate the services (see above) that we offer and seek support for kindness to animals.
