    Default Calling Dog..Cat..Rabbit..Hamster Owners...27th Mar (Sun)

    Hi Pet Owners,

    All creatures great and small.....better still..if you have any equipment (Photography/Videography) to capture the moment.

    We could meet up this Sunday at East Coast Park..morning 11am....carpark.

    This event is organised by Classified Ads... The Straits Times (CATS).
    It's an annual event....probably one of the largest Pets Exhibition held outdoors.

    Please check Sat(26th Mar) Classified Ads for more details on the the different timings of the various events.

    I was told by my neighbour working at Singapore Press Holdings...the goodie bag is of GREAT value!! (but usually I give them to SPCA)



    I am personally working on a project for Mdm Wong's shelter for strays...and met a volunteer yesterday who had successfully adopted one from Mdm Wong's shelter.

    Recently, this shelter was highlighted in the New Paper regarding a stray called Wonder who had to be put to sleep because of her injuries and the public donated $30 000 for the care of the stray.

    I hope I can meet a few CS members at this gathering and for those who are interested in helping out in this project (if your time permits)...I would be more than happy if we could BRAINSTORM together to help voiceless animals who need our time, energy, skill but most of all our LOVE N CARE.

    So to all animal lovers....what are`you waiting for?

    Sorry kcuf2 for the late reply....the answer to your million dollar question : YES.

    But now...sob...sob...it would be next year...same time...same venue.

    Would you like to be a volunteer at Mdm Wong's Shelter for stray dogs?
