Project ADORE (ADOption and REhoming of dogs) has been officially formalised!
We are pleased to share that Project ADORE, first mooted by SPCA and Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD) in 2011, and then piloted by the Ministry of National Development (MND), Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) and Housing Development Board (HDB) in 2012, has formally transited from a pilot scheme to a permanent programme! Save Our Street Dogs (SOSD) is also now part of the programme.
Under Project ADORE, HDB flat owners can now adopt SELECTED medium-sized local mixed breed dogs which are up to 15 kg in weight and 50 cm in height. Interested adopters are allowed to keep only ONE dog per flat and have to abide by stringent ownership conditions, including the sterilisation, routine vaccination, compulsory training and licensing and microchipping of the adopted dog.
Since the scheme started in May 2012-May 2014, a total of 64 dogs have been successfully rehomed under the project.
Interested HDB residents looking to adopt a dog under Project ADORE can contact us at 6287 5355 extension 24.
