SPCA calls for public to report stray dog sightings in Ang Mo Kio, Bishan, Yio Chu Kang
This follows the dog attacks on multiple community cats in recent months.
Members of the public can now report sightings of stray dogs in Ang Mo Kio, Bishan, Yio Chu Kang through a form set up by the Cat Welfare Society. The form was shared by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) on its Instagram page on Sunday (Jan 29).
This follows the recent alleged dog attacks in the Ang Mo Kio, Seletar and Hougang area which resulted in the deaths of around 20 stray cats.
According to SPCA, the documentation of these sightings will allow for the authorities to “gather more data to help” the community dogs and cats.
The form includes questions to ascertain the location, timing and frequency of the sightings, distinctive features of the dogs, details of cats affected, and any other useful information for the Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS).
SPCA has identified at least four dogs in the roving pack with one black dog and three brown dogs.
The society advised those who spot any dogs attacks to maintain a safe distance before calling SPCA’s 24/7 emergency hotline at 6287 5355 Ext. 9, or, AVS’s 24/7 hotline at 1800 476 1600. Members of the public are also reminded not to approach or harm the cats and dogs.
On the Instagram post, several netizens raised concerns about the welfare and safety of the community dogs. Some requested for SPCA to provide more details of follow-up actions.
The SPCA has yet to issue a response.
