The SPCA is a registered non-profit animal welfare charity, and its two main objectives are to promote kindness to animals and to prevent cruelty to animals. Relying mainly on kind donations from the public and fundraising, the Society does not receive any government funding or grants. It provides various animal welfare services including a 24-hour emergency service, cruelty investigation, education programmes for schools and organisations, a sterilisation programme for community animals as well as running an animal shelter for abused and abandoned pets and community animals. All funds go directly to our operations in providing shelter, food, medical attention and love to the rescued animals that walk through our doors each year. We are also in need of funds to complete the development of our new shelter at Sungei Tengah that will be ready for operation from January 2016.
