    Default Help needed, Neighbour misused his house

    Hi there, i have a neighbour that has 4 dogs (one of it is a great dane) confine to a a space around the size of 1 parking lot. The dog *sh*it in that space and the owner just flushes it out of the house after that. (i lived in a terrace btw)
    the dogs are smelly, even me staying 3 doors away can smell it oo (suspected that the owner does not care for his dogs)
    i tried to call SPCA and they said they cannot do anything much.
    Now the owner uses his house as a warehouse. he stores used metal gates (outside) inside his house there are mattresses stack to the ceiling and cables all over.

    Anyone here can advise on where can tell me who can i report to?

    for mattresses can be a fire hazzard, call Civil Defense. who knows, the Civil Defence may call the rest in for u!

    oh, tell them there is more than 1 uncared for doggie inside, dun get bitten. a civil servant is hurt in line of duty? heheh...

    Look for MP might be the way out. Another alternative might be the Singapore Land Authority.

    You might want to refer to this for the change of use of the land
    Let's get rolling :)

    If he's not breaking the law, I don't see what can be done.

    Yea I'm also wondering what laws have been broken. The only thing which I think merits follow up is the whole smell from dog poo bit. There should be a nuisance provision somewhere. As for storing of gates or rearing of dogs, I'm not sure if you can do much about it.

    if you are concern about the dogs well-being, then you may refer to this; ANIMAL WELFARE & CONTROL DIVISION

    http://app.sgdi.gov.sg/listing.asp?a..._id=0000004126

    however, reckon that you are more troubled by the irritating stench

    for this, last resort, will be 前线追中

    As for the "gentle giant" Great Dane, you need to show n proof that the Great Dane is in distress.

    from http://gdcwpa.googlepages.com/adoptionprocess
    Considerations...
    1. Indoor living accommodations must be available. Great Danes are not “outside” dogs.
    2. You are required to have a fenced yard. Being chained in the yard is unacceptable.

    Too many dogs - can try to call AVA or the agency which issue licence to dogs ( don't know which is the one )

    Dog poo - AVA, NEA, BCA.

    Using house as a warehouse - CDF, FSB, BCA.

    Hopes it helps

    i think you should at least try talking to him first before going the "proper channel" way.

    his immediate neighour tried talking to him but it just got worst
    spca called me the other day and they too tried to talk to him but to no improvement

    as for the dog barking at random intervals, he now covers it up with canvas
    more like a jail for the dogs. not forgetting the sun is freaking hot now and the dog black in colour is under it



    Look at the pile of wood.... what if someone just throw a match onto it ?

    now you have 3 reasons (though not very favourable)
    cruelty to animal
    hazardous material at home
    unhygienically environment to neighbours
