SPCA S’pore in need of newspapers to line enclosures for abandoned pets & strays
Donate old newspapers, if you have them at home.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to the Animals (SPCA) is a non-profit organisation in Singapore that takes in abandoned pets or strays.
That also means they need the community’s support in any form.
Here’s a rather simple way you can contribute to the cause.
Calling for newspaper donation
In a Facebook post on July 10, SPCA Singapore appealed to members of the public for old newspapers.
The shelter uses newspapers to line the bottom of enclosures and play areas which have to be changed quite often when they get soiled.
The shelter takes in up to 200 abandoned pets every month, on top of those that they rescued.
A common reason owners gave was that they had “no time to look after them”.
Some of these unwanted pets include dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, and guinea pigs.
If you would like to donate old newspapers, you can deposit them at the reception counter.
SPCA is located at 50 Sungei Tengah Road, Singapore 699012.
Besides donating newspaper, you can find out how you can contribute to SPCA here.
