STRAY MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
It breaks our hearts to know there are tonnes of dogs and cats on our cold hard streets with no food, shelter or medical care. They succumb to a vicious cycle of breeding and suffering till they eventually pass on never knowing what a home is or what love means. Help us put an end to the suffering of all street animals.
The CAS Stray Management Programme involves Trapping Street dogs and Community cats that are unsterilized within the island.
We trap the dogs and cats using humane methods such as step traps, play pens and netting. The street animals are then brought to our partner clinic, Animal World Veterinary Clinic for overnight observation. They are sterilised the subsequent day, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and also placed on anti-tick medication. The animals are then given two days of recovery or longer, depending on surgical site recovery before they are returned to the area they live in. We do keep some of these animals for rehoming, based on their temperament.
The CAS Stray Management Programme is targeted at preventing further growth in the already ballooning stray population in Singapore. We also hope to prevent more litters of puppies and kittens being born as there are simply not enough homes for more animals.
The Stray Management Programme is run by CAS volunteers, private trappers we hire and our partner vet clinic. The Programme has been a woofing success as we have prevented more street animals being born and left suffering on our streets.
The Stray Management Programme is one we hold close to our heart as it brings us back to the streets where many of our rescues come from. We also met beautiful people who dedicate their nights to filling hungry bellies and workers who care more about street dogs than some locals would ever bother. To some foreign workers, the dogs are family. They are eager to help us when they learn we are trying to prevent unwanted litters and end the suffering of more street animals.
The CAS Stray Management Programme is an islandwide one and we respond to calls from feeders, work sites and factories who are able to bring these dogs in directly to our partner clinic. For those who are unable to do so and require help, we refer private trappers. There are a few sites we hold dear and work on them directly in our small team of four.
The Stray Management Programme has always been at work and with the Nation Wide TNRM Programme coming up soon, we forsee this being a long term solution towards a stray free Singapore.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The Stray Management Programme costs us an approximate $400 per dog with volunteer trappers. We need YOUR help to continue doing what we do. We cannot rehome as fast we want to as good homes are hard to come by. The only thing left to prevent a growing stray population in Singapore is sterilising the existing population so NO MORE puppies and kittens are born to our cold hard streets.
Management and use of all donations are in keeping with accepted accounting principles and the Charities Act, Singapore guidelines. We are determined to be known for our high ethical standards and our commitment to transparency and openness.
