World Animal Day 2017

Venue: SPCA, 50 Sungei Tengah Road (How to get to SPCA?)
Date: 30 September & 1 October 2017, Saturday & Sunday
Time: 11am - 5pm

This year's World Animal Day is extra special for SPCA because it is our first time celebrating the event on our new premises and it is also our 70th anniversary. 

World Animal Day is an annual celebration of the important role that animals play in our lives. Animals are an integral part of our society and this is the message that we want to drive home through the following activities this year.


Enjoy the convenience of paying with your mobile phone at World Animal Day with Singtel Dash, Singapore’s only all-in-one mobile payments solution! Every purchase of a SPCA merchandise or donation via the Singtel Dash app will receive an additional $1 donation from Dash. Plus, look out for exclusive 1-for-1 deals and other exciting offers with Dash at the official SPCA merchandise booth.

It’s our 70th anniversary.  So, we will be having a cake cutting ceremony on 30 September 2017 (Saturday) at 3.30pm. This cake is no ordinary cake – it’s a cake for dogs. We will have Viking, our longest resident, to do the honours and have the first bite. We will be distributing the cake slices to pet dogs too – so, bring your pet dog over to the SPCA and let him/her join the fun. 


What better way to celebrate World Animal Day than to have an adoption drive, to enable our wonderful animals at SPCA to find their forever homes? This will be a great opportunity for potential pet owners to interact with the animals and bring home a lovely family member. Families that adopt animals from SPCA on World Animal Day will get attractive goodie bags, while stocks last.


Did you know that majority of the people that abandon or give up their pets do so because they underestimate the responsibilities that come with having a pet? At the Public Education Zone, we hope to change that. Our Animal Ambassadors stationed at this zone will enlighten visitors on the responsibilities of a pet owner and the requirements of various pets, with the hope of putting an end to the abandonment of animals.


Kids will have loads of fun at this station, we assure you. At the Colouring Corner, kids will get to colour on paper an animal of their choice – dog, cat, rabbit, hamster, guinea pig, or red-eared slider. If kids are spoilt for choice, they can colour more than one animal. And of course, they can bring home this lovely piece of art. 


Select from our wide array of bookmarks, notepads, t-shirts, stickers, car decals and more. If you want to take a look at our collection before coming over for World Animal Day, please visit our online store. There’s something for everyone – humans and animals – and what’s more, the proceeds from the sale will go towards helping the animals at SPCA. So, do your bit for the animals on World Animal Day. 


Did you know that SPCA is not funded by the government and that we require around $2.4 million to run SPCA every year? Yes, that’s a lot of money, but thanks to kind individuals like you, who donate to the SPCA, we are able to help the animals. We sincerely request you to become a GIRO donor so that we can continually help animals that pass our doors. Individuals that sign up as GIRO donors on World Animal Day will get attractive goodie bags.


In commemoration of SPCA's 70th anniversary, we will be conducting tours of SPCA premises. In the tour, you will get to learn more about our services and how SPCA has evolved over the years. Please do register for the tour when you drop by the SPCA on World Animal Day. We will be including animal interaction session in the tour too. Tours will be conducted approximately every 30 mins. Tours will start at 11am and end at 4pm.


The World Animal Day is educational in nature, no doubt, but it is also loads of fun. This year, let your imagination run wild. Think about the interesting designs that you would like painted on your face and our face painter will work her magic on you. All this for only $2, which will once again go towards helping the animals at our shelter.


It's time to unleash your wild side with a temporarily inked tattoo. It's only $2 per tattoo. Do take a look at the wonderful designs that the group has come up with and get them on your hands in minutes. All the proceeds from this booth will go towards helping the animals in our shelter.


Calling all kids between the ages of 2 and 8 - it is time to bounce and have some fun this World Animal Day, in our Bouncy Castle. It's only $5 per kid for 10 mins whirl of fun. All the proceeds from this booth will go towards helping the animals in our shelter.


Enjoy a scenic “country-side” ride around SPCA and nearby places on the backseat of a Harley-Davidson bike for a cool $10 per ride, per person. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who have been longing for a ride on Harley-Davidson or are planning to get a bike soon. All the proceeds from this booth will go towards helping the animals in our shelter.


If you are a collector of Barbie dolls, 12" Military Action figures and vehicles, and Star Wars, Star Trek and Spawn figurines, come on over to the Collectibles booth this World Animal Day and add a collectible to your existing collection. There are so many collectibles (the list above is not exhaustive) to choose from that you will simply be spoilt for choice. But remember, there is limited stock! So, hurry! All the proceeds from this booth will go towards helping the animals in our shelter.


What better way to learn about animals than to read about them? Expand your knowledge about animals, both great and small, this World Animal Day by purchasing books on stories about animals and animal care. There will be beautifully packaged books selling at $21, which is worth a lot more than that. And there will be a collection of books that are priced lower than retail stores. So, do stop by the booths selling animal books to learn as much as you can about our furry friends and, at the same time, help these wonderful friends of ours.


We all love a body massage now and then, and so do our dogs. So, this World Animal Day, bring your pet dogs over to the SPCA for a relaxing Canine Massage, carried out by Paws fur life. Canine massage increases blood circulation, relaxes the muscles, encourages the release of toxins from the body and so much more. And it's only $10 for a 10-min massage. Apart from massage therapy, Paws fur life will be selling premium organic treats, natural supplements and holistic pet products.
