Notice From AVA:

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) is the regulatory authority that safeguards animal welfare in Singapore. In this respect, one area under AVA’s purview is the display and sale of pets.

We would like to advise that the individuals who post advertisements to sell animals on forum page may be committing an offense under Section 48 of the Animals and Birds Act 2002 which states that no person shall keep in captivity for sale, export or exhibition any animal or bird in any place that has not been licensed.

The Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) would like to inform the public that the commercial breeding of animals can only be carried out on farms licensed by AVA. Pet owners who regularly breed and advertise to sell pets can be considered as commercial breeders. An individual convicted of breeding and selling animals from his premises without a license from AVA can be fined up to $5,000 upon conviction.

We seek your assistance to stop the illegal sale of animals over the Internet. You can assist us by deleting postings by net users who regularly advertise ornamental fishes, birds and rodents for sale in forums and providing us with their details.


You have been warning! Any posting of selling of live animals will be closed.

For adoption, contact:
