Responding to a parliamentary question of the founder of the animal welfare group, ACRES’ and Member of Parliament for Nee Soon GRC, Louis Ng, Minister for National Development Lawrence Wong said on Monday (Mar 14) that the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) euthanised almost 2,500 animals – 942 dogs, 888 cats and 623 monkeys – in 2015.
The Minister further confirmed that out of the estimated population of 60,000 stray cats, 7,000 stray dogs and 1,900 wild monkeys in Singapore, a further 265 dogs and 129 cats were rehomed in the same year. AVA has to act and impound strays when the public raises safety concerns, said Mr Wong.
Promising that AVA will “continue to work with animal welfare group to rehome stray animals,” Mr Wong said that animals which are not suitable to be rehomed because of issues of aggression or illnesses will be humanely euthanised as a “last resort”.
