Would you be interested to know "What Your Pet Tells You"?


Join us on Saturday 18th August at the shelter to commemorate International Homeless Animals Day! Come and get to know how and where all the animals at our shelter come from.  Come and start your day to know how you can help, support and/or adopt to save a life from the shelter.  It’s 'SPCA OPEN DAY'.  Time: 9 till 2 p.m.  Bring your family and friends along to visit our paw friends!


Do you have a problem with your pet? Nikki Jordan will be at the shelter to help you with a casual and interactive session on Understanding your Pet and What Your Pet Tells You. She will share stories and tips on how to interpret the signs that your pets are giving you, while broadening your understanding of how your pets are here to help you.


Nikki Jordan is a gifted intuitive healer for both humans and animals and has 20+ years of experience with both human and animal psychology. She works to enhance the communication barriers between humans and animals, so that any confusion can disappear, and both can exist in harmony. Nikki is passionate about helping owners see their pets in a different way, and to connect with them through their true magnificence. Nikki believes that animals can heal, inspire and uplift us, and no animal interaction is purely by accident.



Highlight on Adoption

In July, we only had 4 adoptions and that makes a total of only 52 adoptions to-date this year.  We hope the August month will see more animals adopted. Do encourage and spread the word around should you know of anyone wanting to adopt and save a life from animal shelters.



Many puppies have been received lately and we would like to look for temporary fosterers to care for them for a period of time as required.  If you have the time and means, we would like to hear from you.



Volunteering and CSR Services

Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) and Community Services performed by students and company staff are now a hit at NGOs. We are thankful to be chosen, as it relieves us quite a bit with our chores especially with the daily routine interaction and exercising dogs at our shelter.
