WAD Poster

10AM - 8PM

Join us at SPCA's World Animal Day 2015! We'll be there with our activities for children and pet care information. This year's World Animal Day is also extra special as it will be SPCA's final year at its premises in Mount Vernon and they hope to leave the current shelter with a bang.

Here's some activities to look forward to at the event:

Adoption Drive
Have a meet-and-greet session with SPCA's adoptable animals. This is your chance to give an unwanted pet a loving home. Meet the adoptable Viking who will be at the event!

Science Diet
The very popular Hill's Science Diet 'pound-for-pound' food drive is back! Help SPCA collect 3000lbs worth of pet food, accessories and milk for our little ones by buying a bag of food because every bag you buy, the nice people at Hill's will match your donation in purchase and weight.

Animal Care Corner
Learn awesome facts about your furry friend! SPCA's educational booth features tips on care for domestic animals and awareness on responsible ownership and care for community animals in Singapore.

PAWS & WISH (Animal Dedication Board)
Small plaques can be purchased and dedications can be written, to be hung on a dedication board.

SPCA Wall of History & Photobooth
As it is SPCA's last year celebrating World Animal Day while still at its Mount Vernon premises, this wall will feature old photographs, newsletters, and nostalgic paraphernalia. Take a Polaroid photo at the photobooth to take home with you!

Launch of New & Exclusive SPCA Merchandise
SPCA will be releasing its official 2016 diaries and calendars, new merchandise and limited edition products to celebrate SPCA's expansion to its new premises.

Face and Hand Painting
Get your face painted like your favourite domestic animal!

Balloon Sculpturing
Don't get your balloons in a knot, instead get them shaped into your favourite animals!

    Pet Care Tips: How to take care of an elderly cat

    There will come a day when your dear cat gets old and need more care. Once he/she hits 7 years old, you would need to do more for Kitty. But like what? Today's video shares some tips with you.

    Beat the Monday Blues: Cats with good 'meow'mory!

    Cats are often blamed for attacking precious native wildlife. Thus, a study was done in the United States (US) to track the movement of cats. One of the remarkable results they found was that cats have a great long term spatial memory and can travel to places they used to live in even though they've never been there on their own before! Find out more in today's video.

    Just as the guy in the video shared, we only advocate that cats in Singapore remain indoors for safety reasons and good neighbourliness. Keep them happy at home by providing sufficient food, water, enrichment toys, scratching post and lots of love and companionship. Also, don't forget to mesh your gates and window grilles.
