“Saving lives through sterilisation”
When Cat Welfare Society first came into operation, records showed that 13,000 community cats were put down every year. This equated to 35 cats killed every single day. This could not be allowed to go on and we quickly realised that the only way to help alleviate suffering is to go to the root cause of the problem — which is that there were too many cats being born.
From the start, the Society did not waver in its focus to incentivise and encourage more people to sterilise community cats through its sterilisation programmes. After 10 years, positive results are currently seen in many estates halving their stray cat population and. The number of cats surrendered and culled has also fallen to an all-time low of 4000.
This is a clear indication of the effectiveness of current strategies in stabilising and reducing the stray population. This is especially observable when volunteers, town councils and management committees work together to uphold the integrity of the sterilisation programme in their estates. Through this continued collaboration will we be able to bring down the community cat population even further and send fewer cats to be culled.
“Saving lives through enriching more minds”
The Cat Welfare Society also works closely with all Town Councils, the Housing Development Board, National Environment Agency and Agri-food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore to resolve cat issues in our communities effectively and humanely.
Moving forward, we aim to build on our strength in numbers to cultivate a robust community outreach movement to reach more people with our message of responsibility and tolerance. Many caregivers and volunteers are already part of this grassroots movement to educate their neighbours and fellow residents as well as to help their community resolve issues related to community and pet cats.
Join us. We believe that it takes a community to resolve a community issue and only by making a human connection can we create a culture of peer pressure and encouragement that can effectively change mindsets.
Set up in 2002 by Cathy Strong and Mohan Div S/O Sreedharan, it is now run by a newly setup committee consisting of six members including Cathy and Mohan. We’re committed to rescuing abused, abandoned or homeless animals. In 2004, we established Pets Villa — a safe haven to house these animals while they recuperate and await adoption. Through the efforts of our volunteers, countless cats and dogs have moved on from their undesirable pasts and found loving homes to call their own. An incredible amount of energy and resources is no doubt essential to address the needs of the animals and sustain the facility. Our efforts would have been futile without the unfailing support of sponsors, donors and animal lovers. Their selfless contributions keep both our animals and hopes alive. As a non-profit organisation, all proceeds go towards fulfilling the needs of our animals. We humbly thank you for your kind support of our cause and hope you will continue to walk with us through this journey.
Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD) was established in December 2000 as a non-profit organization with the mission to improve the welfare of stray and abandoned dogs in Singapore. ASD was officially registered with the Registry Of Societies on the 3rd July 2002.
We aim to fulfill our mission through various activities and programs including rescuing, fostering and re-homing of stray and abandoned dogs, advocating sterilization as a means of controlling the stray population, heightening public awareness of the responsibilities involved in pet ownership and highlighting the virtues of our local dogs.
HOPE Dog Rescue is based in Singapore.
We are a group of animal lovers who strongly feel that all animals should be treated with love and respect. We help animals who are abused, neglected or abandoned.
We are volunteer animal rescuers who hold full time jobs or school but we believe that despite our busy shcedules, the dogs still need our help. HOPE does not manage a physical shelter but we depend on the commitment of our volunteers and fosterers, and even our supporters and members of the public, to help out with our rescue work.
