firstly, many pet shops i've seen, DISALLOW photos to be taken. In my opinion, it seems to be trying to get away with any possible misdeeds.

Secondly, AVA should be the one - advertise/call for volunteers. Then only the public can keep a look out for such cases when they go to pet shops.
And give them the right to take photos. Or at least, issue them the 'volunteer officer card' to get the right to take photos.

Waiting for AVA to do anything is an irony as they are the ones who have been failing to impose or enforce the neccesary regulations for the safeguard of animals in the 1st place.

If we are serious, we need to do our active parts. Our society has been too conditioned to always need 'official approval' before we dare to do anything, even if it's the right thing.

unfortunately, not having the rights from the gov, ppl don't give a damn to wat is being said even if it IS right. It's not dare or not dare, but rather, whether the effort put in would be gone to waste, w/o the gov's approval.

in that case, push for AVA to do that - recruiting volunteer.

I believe what the earlier poster means is that one can always start to be pro active already.

If the AVA volunteer scheme does come about, that's great. But why wait for it to happen first before we start doing anything. What happens if the scheme never comes about.

Twenty over caregivers and feeders met up with A.M.K. town council recently and a direct meeting with A.V.A. was mooted. C.W.S. was said to be liaison between them. No news so far. Hope many of us can attend when the date is set.

There was a public plea made at Hong Lim Park last Saturday by a local caregiver on this.

Things are really moving along. Even China has made a draft animal protection act but will take 10 years to become law.

Written Answer by Ministry of National Development on Animal Cruelty

LINK : AVA prosecutes 7 cases out 1000 complaints


Parliamentary Q&A

Written Answer by Ministry of National Development on Animal Cruelty

11 JANUARY 2010

Question No. 53
Question by: Dr Lam Pin Min

Dr Lam Pin Min asked the Minister for National Development (a) what is the number of abandoned pets in Singapore over the past 3 years and how are they managed; (b) what efforts has AVA taken to control the abandoning of pets; and (c) how many cases of cruelty to animals were reported and their perpetrators persecuted over the past 3 years.

.....................

AVA receives about 350 cases of feedback per year on alleged animal cruelty. AVA investigates all feedback and will prosecute an offender if there is sufficient evidence and witnesses are willing to testify in Court to the alleged offence. AVA has successfully prosecuted two cases and fined five other offenders in the last three years.

350 cases of feedback per year = 1000 cases over 3 years
Number of cases AVA prosecuted over 3 years = 7 (2 prosecuted, 5 fined)

That's great. Only if there are more people like you around.

tip: the ground staff, esp the area cleaners and supervisors are good people to touch base with.

Singapore dog breeder jailed for animal cruelty


SINGAPORE, Friday 23 July 2010 (AFP) - A Singaporean dog breeder convicted of cruelty to animals will have to serve a six-week jail sentence after failing to pay a fine, a government agency said Friday.

The Agri-Veterinary Authority (AVA), which safeguards food supply as well as the health of animals, said its investigations found that 43-year-old Ng Kok Ming had caused unnecessary suffering to six dogs he owned.

Ng was fined 30,000 Singapore dollars (21,850 US) after a court trial but was unable to pay the amount, so he has to serve time in prison.

The AVA said Ng had compromised the animals' welfare by failing to "provide adequate food and veterinary attention" to the dogs.

It said it began investigations in August after a routine inspection at a farm that housed three dogs Ng had given away after he ran into financial trouble.

Singapore, where pet ownwership is growing in popularity, has been cracking down on animal cruelty.

In February, a 41-year-old man was jailed for 10 weeks after he pleaded guilty to killing a cat by smashing it twice against a wall.

Two owners of a dog shown being beaten in a clip posted on video-sharing site YouTube have been issued a stern warning.
