Our Sterilisation Programmes

Help us save countless lives and humanely reduce our animal population through these programmes!

Since 1991, SPCA Singapore has distributed over 35,000 free sterilisation vouchers to community dog and cat caregivers and animal welfare groups, totalling over $1.3 million in costs borne by the SPCA.

TNRM Programme

Stray Cat Sterilisation Programme

Trap-Neuter-Release-Manage (TNRM) Sterilisations For Community Dogs

Our TNRM programme is a five-year nationwide dog sterilisation programme funded by the Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS). It was officially launched on 10 November 2018 by Mr Desmond Lee, Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for National Development. The SPCA is the lead animal welfare group for the programme.

TNRM is a humane and science-based approach to manage the street dog population. Dogs caught under the programme will be sterilised and assessed for their suitability for rehoming.

  • Professional veterinary care provided
  • Saves lives and prevents more street dogs from suffering
  • Free sterilisations funded by AVS
  • Dogs suitable for rehoming will be placed for adoption
  • Dogs that cannot be rehomed will be returned to the same location where they were found or to a suitable location to live out their lives naturally

How Can You Help?

Many dogs only trust their caregivers. If you are a caregiver of an unsterilised dog, email tnrmmanager@spca.org.sg or drop a general enquiry. If you know someone who is, let them know about our programme!

Stray Cat Sterilisation Programme (SCSP)

The Stray Cat Sterilisation Programme (SCSP) is a collaborative venture between the SPCA and AVS to further reduce the number of community cats in Housing and Development Board (HDB) estates. This service is provided free, with the AVS and SPCA funding the costs equally.

The SCSP replaced the sterilisation voucher scheme in mid-2015. Under the new programme, the SPCA will provide training for volunteers and mediators to work with community feeders, encouraging sterilisations, responsible feeding, and public education.

Who is eligible for the Stray Cat Sterilisation Programme?

The SCSP programme is available to community cat feeders who are 18 years old and above.

Under the programme, community cats in Housing and Development Board (HDB) estates can be taken to the SPCA clinic or participating veterinary clinics for free sterilisation strictly by appointment only.

Community cats living beyond the confines of HDB neighbourhoods, such as those in industrial and private housing estates, or farms and outer fringe areas, can be sterilised for a nominal sum of $25.

How do I book an appointment?

SPCA Clinic

Community cat feeders can contact the SPCA at 62875355 (extension 14) to book an appointment.

Please have the following information ready when you call:

  • Full name, address, NRIC/ FIN number and contact number of community caregiver
  • Number of cats that need to be sterilised
  • The sex of each cat
  • The area (neighbourhood) where the cat is from

On the day of the surgery appointment, please bring along the necessary identification, e.g. an original NRIC card, passport, and any other supporting information with your address on it.

NOTE: You are urged to keep to your allocated appointment time, if not you may be requested to schedule another appointment.
To cancel or reschedule an appointment, please notify SPCA’s Clinic (6287 5355 Ext. 14) or email clinic@spca.org.sg as soon as possible (at least 24 hours in advance) so that another surgery slot can take its place.

Can SPCA sterilise my/owned pets?

Unfortunately, we cannot provide treatment/surgery for owned pets due to limited resources spent on SPCA and community animals. You are encouraged to bring your pet for sterilisation at private clinics; it is a one-off expense with long-term health benefits.

Theoretically, a single female cat (with all her female offspring reproducing freely) takes just three years to be the source of 20,000 new kittens! Of course, the male who sired the first litter is equally responsible.

As a responsible pet owner, you can stop this cycle. Sterilise your dog or cat and tell others to do the same. And don’t forget, a sterilised animal is a happier, healthier pet!
