CWS Second Chance Fundraising for a better future for all cats

  • Needs a location

  • Cat Welfare Society (CWS)  appeals to secure a better future for all cats.

    The power to save lives lies in your hands so please help us help them now.



      We believe in the power in all of us to transform the lives of cats and create the kind of society we want our children to grow up in – one that cares, one that saves lives instead of destroys them, one where the vulnerable and the abused are not deprived of a second chance.

    At times, it feels like we’re fighting a losing battle but yet we continue to persevere. After all, losing our cats and in turn our humanity is simply NOT an option. Some examples below highlight the challenges we face and this is why we need your help to continue to fund our work to save lives every day.

    We are currently trying to raise $300,000 which will see us through till 2017 to sustain our operations but we are only at 10% of our target goal. The power to save lives lies in your hands so please help us help them now.

    A little love can go a really long way…

    Braveheart and Yoda were amongst 39 cats hoarded, starved and living in filth in extreme hoarding conditions. We got involved and did our best. Some of them never really stood a chance but that didn’t stop all volunteers and our vet partners from doing their best to show them that there are people who care. 27 cats are on the road to recovery but we’ve had to say goodbye to 12 precious ones who eventually succumbed to organ failure. Yoda was one of them. Despite it all, they knew they were loved.

    Saved in the nick of time.

    Faith was surrendered to the AVA by her owner for no other reason than simply being outgrown by her family. They began by substituting food for affection. She had another companion at home but she was given away and Faith finally found herself at the AVA because it had taken too long to rehome a pudgy cat. Alerted to her plight, a community pulled together to provide her a safe foster home as she awaits a second chance at a loving home.  The alternative would have been unthinkable… Cat welfare isn’t just about helping cats.

    It is also about making human connections and rebuilding human lives to do right by them and their cats.

    That is why the Cat Welfare Society is on the frontline in every estate when there is a complaint, a feedback or issue about cats in Singapore. Our mediators are there to promote a humane solution and stop culling. They also play a vital role in assisting families with cats in need and to make critical human connections that change the way people see cats and animal welfare.

    We can’t do this without your help!

    The Second Chance Fund – Help us save lives   Many of you were surprised to learn that we are not funded by the government and all our funding over the years have been sourced on our own and through the kindness of our donors. This has not changed. We are still reliant on your kindness to help more cats and families.

    Our Second Chance Fund helps the thousands of lives human and feline that we impact every year through our sterilisation programme, medical special appeals, active mediation and assistance. Help us sustain this vital work so that we see the change we want in this world – that more lives can receive the second chance they have been waiting for.

    The power to change the way we approach animal welfare in Singapore is in your hands so help us pave the way for future generations. Let us stand united and continue to push boundaries to secure a safer future for all cats.

      We can help in many ways. CWS is managed by volunteeers & do not have a fixed office. Most cat volunteers independently help in one way another. If not by donating, most of us will either be care givers, going out to feed the strays by ensuring they have some clean food & water daily, rescue sick & injured cats by bringing for treatments, etc.

      hi kar et al, 1 of the questions that i would ask is if you're intending 2 adopt a cat, do u have any other pets in your house, even hamsters, or fish? When they go disappearing, don't blame the cat bec it's natural for him! When my mum was alive, we adopted 2 other cats off the street. The "permanent residences" to this house chased them away. Pretty sad bec i really dono what happened 2 them.

    good show SuAn. i too have 4 cats, 1 surviving 1 was adopted off the street, 3 were born in my house, the mother, who was adopted off the street, moved in with a neighbour. i think those of us who adopt pets in general have to look upon it as serious as adopting children. People who throw out their pets have more or less committed murder bec their pets don't hv the necessary survival skills to find food & shelter.
