The Purpose of Animal Welfare Organisations

Last year, Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary (NANAS) launched a new pilot program called the mobile Animal Birth Control (ABC) clinic to facilitate the sterilisation street cats, dogs and for owners who cannot afford the cost of sterilisation in Malaysia.

The cost of sterilisation is either at a subsidised rate or given free, depending on a case by case basis which will be assessed by Raymund Wee, founder of NANAS.

Through the continued efforts of goodwill and collaborations, Noah's Ark has also helped other animal welfare organizations such as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Johor Bahru. 

These three kittens were part of a street rescue that SPCA had conducted to reduce the number of strays through sterilisation. SPCA conducts street rescues when there is a sharp increase in the stray population or when a complaint is filed so that they can monitor the situation closely.

However, due to the high volume of rescues that SPCA JB conducts daily, the organization is also overwhelmed with the number of sick and injured animals that are in need of urgent treatment. This is where Noah's Ark comes in to lend its resources in helping SPCA JB with the temporary housing of these animals after medical treatment and sterilisation. With the ABC clinic, animals that cannot be treated at SPCA JB are brought into Noah's Ark for treatment and then returned.

By helping one another as organisations, more animals have the opportunity to find a second chance at getting a good owner and a loving home where they can live out the rest of their lives in safety and not on the streets.

At the sanctuary, these three kittens are brought in for a general health-screening and sterilisation. When the sterilisation is done, the kittens are then brought back to SPCA JB for adoption. These active collaborations between the two animal welfare organizations offer a glimpse of pooling together more resources and ways to help more animals. This will in turn give more animals the chance to lead better lives and to actively reduce the stray population through active partnerships and collaborations.

However, Raymund hopes that the many animal welfare organisations stay focus and are passionate in helping the animals whole-heartedly and not half-heartedly. He gives an analogy of an accident prone area where there is a high amount of accidents; there should be preventive measures to reduce the number of accidents by installing more lights and to address the issue thoroughly to prevent more casualties. It is necessary to sterilise all the strays and not only a certain portion.

He terms it as the “fire-engine syndrome” in animal welfare and it reflects on the attitude of animal welfare groups. He says, “When there is a siren, these groups will act, but they do not address the issue sufficiently to prevent it from happening again which is the problem.” He hopes that more proactive steps can be taken to address the stray problem at certain places which is to release, relocate or re-home them and nip the stray issue in the bud instead of giving up halfway.

Where there’s a pet, there’s a will

Have you ever wondered what will happen to your pet if you were incapacitated or die?

Mei visiting Uncle Lim
at the home.
As a volunteer at animal shelters, I have seen cats and dogs being left in shelters or euthanized after their owners have suffered a stroke, had an accident or passed on because the owners failed to make a provision for the pet’s future.

In May 2014 - my friend, Uncle Lim who had 30 cats, slipped while moping the floor and injured his spine. He has paralysis from shoulder down, unable to use his fingers, hands or legs. He is now completely dependent on nursing care. While he was in the hospital, my friends and I had to scramble to take turns to feed his cats, nurse the sick ones and clean his house. Like most of us, he never thought he would be physically unable to care for his animals and hence never planned how to provide for them.  

Whilst I already have a will for my pets (which will only take effect upon my death), I did not consider events such as accident or illness leading to long term hospital stay or incapacitation. After witnessing my friend’s condition, I need to plan ahead to ensure that my pets, which I love and depend on me to care for them, will continue to receive the same care that they are accustomed to.

Here are a few tips to help you in case of your incapacitation and eventual death.


  • Find at least 2 responsible animal loving friends to be temporary or emergency caregivers.  
    • Please seek their consent. 
    • Provide house keys, feeding & care instructions, veterinarian contact details and such other relevant information. 
    • Leave some money with them. 
    • Make sure these caregivers (i.e. your friends or neighbours or relatives) know the number of pets you have. 
    • Do this now before any mishap occurs.
  • Carry an “Alert Card” in your wallet listing the names and phone numbers of emergency caregivers.
  • Affix a notice in your house listing emergency contact persons, contact numbers and instructions for your pet (this is critical if your pet has special medical or dietary needs). This notice cannot be over emphasized as your pets need care and attention should you die or become incapacitated.
  • Have extra medication or special food on standby. This is one of the priorities for pets with special medical care (such renal failure or heart ailment) or dietary needs. It is not easy to think clearly during a crisis, make it convenient for the caregiver until things are more settled.
Permanent Caregiver
Firstly you need to decide whether you want your pets to go to one person or different pets to different people. If possible, pets which have bonded with each other should be together.

When you are selecting the caregivers, consider the people who have met your pet and their experience in caring for pets. Choose a person you trust and will do what is in the best interest of the pet. 

Consider more than one person, just in case your first choice predeceased you, unable or unwilling to take your pet.  Discuss your expectations with potential caregivers so they understand the responsibility and your expectations of caring for your animal. Your instructions should not be unrealistically restrictive.

Will, Trust Deed or Power of Attorney or Letter of Wishes
In the UK and USA, pet owners set up a trust or create a power of attorney to provide for the pet if the pet owner becomes ill or incapacitated. Pet owners draw up a will to provide for the pet which will take effect when the pet owner dies.

The comedian and television host, Joan Rivers who passed away in September 2014, purportedly left a USD$150 million fortune to her daughter, grandson and her 3 rescue dogs, with instructions for her dogs to be taken care of.  It was reported that "Those dogs are her family. They meant the world to her and Joan wanted to make sure that if anything happened to her that they would be taken care of."

Although not many of us are in the same financial league as Miss Rivers, a trust deed or a power of attorney (in case of illness or incapacitation) and/or a will (in case of death) still could be drawn up for our pets.  Or at the very least, a letter of wishes to a trusted and kindred spirit as to how to provide for your pet when the need arises. Needless to say, you should seek the person’s permission whether he/she is willing to carry out your instructions. Don’t just leave instructions, do also leave some money to him/her as a gift and sufficient sum of money (consider inflationary costs) to cover for your pet’s food, medical, grooming and all related costs for the expected duration of the pet’s life

Think carefully.  Write it down clearly. Make sure that the document is readily accessible. Also do ensure that the chosen people are aware of this document and its location.

My Will
My will is simple. The section relating to my cats reads as follows:

I give and bequeath <Person’s name> my cats, <name of pets e.g. Tinkerbell and Bello> (and their possessions) along with a sum of <$XXX>   as a love gift to care for <name of pets e.g. Tinkerbell and Bello> for the rest of their lives and <$XXX> to cover for their food, veterinary, grooming and related costs for the rest of their lives.

In the event that <Person #1> is deceased or unable or unwilling to care of <name of pets e.g. Tinkerbell and Bello>, then <Person #2> shall receive the same bequest.

If you are the “kiasu” type (i.e. worried) you may incorporate a third clause, just in case Person #1 and Person #2 are not available.

In the event Person #2 is deceased or unable or unwilling to care of Tinkerbell and Bello, then my executor shall find a good and loving home to place both Tinkerbell and Bello (preferably together, but if that is not possible, then separately). The party(ies) that adopts the cats shall receive the cats’ possessions and a love gift of <$XXX> to care for Tinkerbell and Bello for the rest of their lives and <$XXX>  to cover for their  food, veterinary, grooming and all related cost for the rest of their life.

There is no absolute guarantee that my cats will be protected after my passing, even with the provisions in the Will. The caregiver could take the cats in and then abandon them or drop them off in a shelter. However I trust the people I have named as caregivers to be responsible and devoted pet owners and will carry out my wishes and do the right thing for me and my cats.

This article is to create awareness about providing for your pets during life changing moments. To me, Tinkerbell and Bello are my children.  I must plan ahead in finding temporary and permanent caregivers who can take over their care immediately when the need arises. It will also give me the peace of mind.

Please consider making such provisions for your pets. It’s the best gift you can give to your pets if something happens to you. And of course, if you have a spouse, do the same for him or her.

News from Noah's Ark - November 2014

Dear Friends of Noah's Ark

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all our supporters for contributing towards "Noah's Ark Electricity Project" .

The total amount raised for the "Electricity Project " today stands at $16,600 - we havedefinitely achieved our target for the project. A big thank you once again, without your support this would not have been possible. 

In the light of Christmas giving, we hope that you will also consider helping us further in our newest initiative "Buy A Brick" goal of S$12,000 for the following repair works that the sanctuary needs:

  • S$3,000 to build an enclosure for Jerry, a rescued 150 kg wild boar that had been bought by someone believing he was a Vietnamese pot bellied pig.
  • S$5,000 to repair and rebuild the enclosure for Starbucks and Latte, residents of Noah's Ark and Mocha a newly rescued macaque that was a hit and run accident victim. To read about Mocha's rescue, please click here.

  • Last and not least S$4,000 to repair the leaking roofs.

To further our commitment to reducing unnecessary killing and to a stray free Singapore and Malaysia, we have introduced our Animal Birth Control (ABC) clinic to provide low cost sterilization of stray animals. We are happy to report that our decision to promote cheaper sterilization has met with wide public support as evidenced by the growing number of veterinarians that now visit our sanctuary to assist us in our sterilization programmes.

This professional assistance is most welcomed as we now see an increasing number of animal rescue cases at the sanctuary almost on a daily basis. We have therefore formally named this venture  "VetHelp@Noah's Ark" . We hope to encourage  professional and student veterinarians to come forward to lend their time in helping with the clinic at the sanctuary on a voluntary basis with the introduction of this program.

To date,veterinarians from Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong that have participated in  the "VetHelp@Noah's Ark" programme have been given the opportunity to witness and participate on some less common cases such as limb amputation, removal of kidney stones, eye enucleation and early age neutering. Such complicated cases gives the volunteer veterinarians the opportunity to finally apply their knowledge and expertise on needy patients.
We are most appreciative of the sacrifice our dedicated and passionate veterinarians whohave sacrificed their rest days to make a difference to these animals. Our animals at the sanctuary have benefited greatly from their expertise and commitment of our volunteer vets. We look forward to the continued success of this initiative which is a definite win - win situation for all participants.

In addition, we are now launching our campaign  the "Street is Not Their Home"., A program that highlights how imperative it is that we need to work on neutering so as to reduce the stray street population and the  unnecessary killing. We hope that our programmes will garner support from more willing veterinarians so that we will eventually see a slow and steady decline in the stray population through our combined efforts.

I would also like to make special mention of both Ms Susanna Gan for donating S$1,000 and Mr Yong Sze Nam for donating S$5,000 who despite their recent bereavements decided that in honour of their loved ones' memories a monetary tribute  to Noah's Ark was made.

So as the spirit of Christmas and giving sets upon the world, we do hope that you will consider giving to our deserved progammes: "Buy a Brick", "Vet Help@Noah's Ark" or "Sponsor a Pet".

Any form of donations are always welcomed. If however you would prefer to donate cash, please send a cheque to Noah's Ark CARES and mail it to 42 Cairnhill Road #02-01 Singapore 229661 or make a fund transfer to support us.

Happenings at Noah's Ark
Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) Cats

When one mentions Marina Barrage, Marina Financial Centre, Marina Coastal Expressway, Gardens By The Bay - what comes to our mind is a modern and developed Singapore. On this little red dot, a number of stray and community animals share the same space with us and sometimes, in the most unexpected places.

Sometime in October, our volunteer was alerted to an area with a number of unsterilized cats at a worker's dormitory off Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE). 

We had previously spayed and rehomed some of the dogs around the same area too when we were asked to help the cats as well. We were informed that the dormitory will be demolished at the end of November'14. After finding out that the cats will be shelter-less soon, the volunteers made a decision that the cats should not be returned to the site after sterilization. It would be inhumane to return the cats back to the site as the dormitory is in the middle of many other construction sites - they may be knocked down by heavy vehicles and their source of food would be gone too. 

Please help us to help the cats before they become shelter-less by helping to trap the cats, transport the cats to the vet for vaccination, micro chipping and boarding while we try to find homes for them. To read about their plight, click here

For more information, email to Noah's Ark CARES

Shasha's Broken Tail

The volunteers were on their usual rounds checking and feeding the dogs.  When they reached Shasha's factory, they noticed  that she had excessively licked her tail and the tail was infected and swollen. 

They checked with the security guard and a few workers and no one knew what had happened. We believed it could be an industrial accident, it looked like a forklift went over her tail.
Concern for her well being, we took her to the vet to have her tail treated.  To read about her plight, please click here.

Wildlife Rescue at Noah's Ark

On 4 November, a long tail marque was found clinging on to his dead mother on a busy street.  Obviously both were hit and run motor accident victims.  Mocha was lucky to survive and he had sustained a broken hind leg.  The macaque was brought to the sanctuary clinic in the morning by a farmer for treatment.  To read about Mocha's rescue, please click here

Kakato Food Donation Drive  

Buy a carton of Kakato Premium Pet Food at $77 and help us to feed the dogs and cats at Noah's Ark.

The food donation drive is organised by June's Pet House, to place an order, please contact June at email

Greeting Cards, Canvases and Luggage Tags by Meerkat Place
All the art pieces you see on Meerkat Place are original works by artists from all ages. Each has designated a charity to benefit from the sale of art products: Greeting cards, stretched canvases and luggage tags. 

By purchasing an art product, you are encouraging an artist and supporting a great cause, plus getting unique art to boot! 

Visit Meerkat Place and purchase as Christmas gifts.

The items sold will be matched by a generous donor to Noah's Ark CARES from now till Christmas day.  The proceeds will help us to feed the animals at the sanctuary. 

Huggy Boy's Enclosure

We would like to thank our main sponsors Linda, Andrew, Darren and all our well wishes for contributing towards the construction of Huggy Boy's enclosure.

Huggy Boy is very happy with his new home.  When he was transferred into his enclosure, it took him 2 days to discover that he could swing and everyday he is getting plenty of exercise.  

The enclosure was designed by Raymund Wee and the students from School of the Arts (SOTA) helped with the construction with our workers during their school vacation. 

Please click here to view a video of Huggy Boy in his new enclosure.

Starbucks,Latte and Mocha (both rescued macaques) have a Christmas wishlist that is to have a similar enclosure.  Please email to Noah's Ark CARES if you can make their dreams come true.

VetHelp@Noah’s Ark

The photographs below contain contents that is graphically disturbing, viewer's discretion is advised.

Dr Keisia and Dr Nicole performing a spay and neuter on a cat.
To assist in our ambitious project to spay as many strays we hope too, is no easy feat as each surgical procedure requires a lot of time and concentration to be done properly. As such, Noah’s Ark has opened its doors to both vet students and volunteer veterinarians from Singapore, Malaysia and other countries.  These vet students come in as part of their internship to assist Raymund in diagnosing the daily vet work and cases that pass through the clinic.  

Volunteer veterinarians donate their free time to assist in more complicated veterinarian procedures. We are very appreciative for both such contributions as their efforts have been most beneficial for our programs and to all our animals. We know that such hard work and dedication by both these groups is due to their common love and compassion for the animals.

Left: Dr Bernice performing a leg amputation on Lordy a rescued
German Shepherd with her colleagues from Allpets & Aqualife Clinic.

Kaylen and Wey Yin are such two intern veterinarians from Hong Kong and Penang. They believed that they have benefited from their internship with Noah’s Ark.  They were able to practice many of their skills on actual animals with guidance from both Raymund and other vets and they believed that they have grown in terms of skills, mindset and direction as young veterinarians.

From left vet interns: Kaylen and Wei Yin. 
Kaylen says, “Uncle Raymund is such a patient teacher not only in surgical skills but also in life.”  “I have learnt so much from him as he is both wise and inspiring.”  They are also determined in becoming better veterinarians so that they will apply the most appropriate procedure for the animals to minimize any discomfort.  Wey Yin says, “I admire how Uncle Raymund cares for animals as much as people. His life story shows that he knows without determination, one would never achieve or attain one’s goal.”

They appreciate Raymund for demonstrating to them the various spay techniques. He displayed much patience despite their sometimes clumsy attempts, encouraging them to persevere and rewarding their  hard work  by cooking delicious meals during their attachment.

From left vet interns: Cheryl and Ivan.

They believe that their experience at Noah’s Ark was extremely rewarding and do hope more people will be inspired to do what they have done. By partaking in the important job of sterilizing the stray population, they have been able to make a difference to the lives of these animals. 

Noah’s Ark Animal Birth Control (ABC) Clinic’s humble beginnings

Vets from Singapore volunteering their services and assistance
to help the animals at Noah's Ark..

When people are ill, we are able to visit the nearest polyclinic for good yet affordable treatment as the government subsidizes such medical costs.  Unfortunately, this avenue is not available to pet owners.  Sadly, many pet owners are not able to pay the veterinary charges and opt not to visit the vet when their animals are ill, as much as they would wish to have their animals treated.  Recognizing that there was a gap to be filled, Raymund Wee, the founder of Noah’s Ark Natural Animal Sanctuary (NANAS) started his low cost mobile clinic called Noah’s Ark Animal Birth Control Clinic (Noah’s Ark ABC Clinic) to service this need.

Raymund painstakingly converted an old caravan into a mobile spay shuttle that is fully equipped with a surgical suite and equipment. The services offered by the clinic are routine medical checks, simple surgical procedures and sterilization at subsidized rates. Despite the small space, the clinic even is able to house recovering animals that have been sterilized to monitor their recovery.

Pet owners that are dependent on financial assistance or government grants will have their medical fees waived. The objectives of the clinic is two fold. First to provide affordable pet care for owners who would otherwise not be able to treat their pets but also to encourage people to sterilize both their pets as well as strays that they are caregivers of.  Raymund has always believed that sterilization is the only humane way to reduce the stray population of both dogs and cats.  As such, Noah’s Ark offers TNR (Trap, Neuter and Release) for street cats and dogs.  As he feels that in many of the cases of these strays, the animals have been abandoned as the owners were not able to afford medical expenses to treat the animals.

As such, Noah’s Ark will continue to provide free or heavily subsidized spay services in its effort to reduce the stray population in both Singapore and Malaysia.

Mocha's Leg Amputation

The photographs below contain contents that is graphically disturbing, viewer's discretion is advised.

Monday, 17 November - Mocha a rescued long tail macaque and an accident road victim has been with us for 14 days and today we are getting him ready for his leg to be amputated by Dr Keisia a volunteer vet from Mount Pleasant East Coast.

This afternoon, the surgery was performed by Dr Kesia and it was a success without any complication and he is out off GA (general anaesthesia) and he is happily eating his banana.

Thank you to Dr Keisia a compassionate vet who came all the way from Singapore to volunteer her time and to help Mocha.

Getting Mocha ready for surgery.

Mocha having a banana after his surgery and he is doing well.

Visit by Lasalle Students


Two months ago, i brought my class of Year 2 Lasalle students to a paradise on earth known as Noah's Ark Nature Animal Sanctuary in JB, Malaysia. It was a brand new experience for many of my students. A few told me it's the first time they have touch a cat, for some it's the first time they've touched a dog and for others the first time they've touch a horse. Let's enjoy the photos taken by my students and hear their thoughts on their visit to Noah's Ark and how it has changed their perspective and overcame their fears.

"The main hut-building was constructed by the owner of this sanctuary with recycled wood and other materials. Very Impressive! I personally feel that this place is a place that “no matter how old or your past holds, you’re still welcome here” which very well relates to the animals being left here. Each animal has a story of their own." - Sally Teo

"I really love cats and dogs, but since I’m quite an introvert myself, I don’t really know how to play with them. Therefore, beside my excitement, I was also a little bit afraid. When we arrived, we were welcomed by a lot of excited dogs. To be honest, I was quite shocked. But they are very friendly, and Lynda, one of the volunteers, assured us that these dogs might look quite hyper but for sure they won’t bite. She always said: “what all these animals want is affection”. - Tran Vu Phuong Hoa

"Arriving there was definitely a different experience than from what I imagined. I was forewarned that the dogs are free-ranging, but never had I imagined we would be literally hounded by a welcoming committee of canines the moment we stepped through the gate. Now, personally I do not mind dogs but as a Muslim, I have never so much as taken a few steps towards one. So one can guess that suddenly being brought face to face with so many dogs in one go was admittedly overwhelming. Though apprehensive at first, I guess I was able to get my bearings after a good lunch and some time to take a breather and soak in the sights." - Adiba Binte Mohammed Mustafa

"Other than learning the functions on the camera and taking pictures of the surrounding and the animals, what I really enjoyed most was interacting with the animals. I am not a big fan of cats, because I of a bad childhood memory. But during this trip I actually held a cat in my arms, and that to most people is nothing much but I was just super happy." - Yap Lai Ye Genevieve

'One of the first dogs we met was Jasmine. According to the handler, she has pretty much lived in the cattery since she was a puppy so Jasmine actually think she is a cat. Indeed she is very silent and has a habit on jumping the table. She even sits like a very lady-like cat." - Adiba Binte Mohammed Mustafa

"Overall, I enjoyed myself much more than I actually anticipated. I have always fancied myself a cat person, but after today I think I am officially a dog person as well. It felt nice getting sincerely greeted by such friendly animals as compared to my own unenthusiastic cats who merely give a passing glance. However, that is beside the point. If ever I have a chance to visit the place again, I would go whole heartedly. I miss my new canine buddies. I hope they are doing well. " - Adiba Binte Mohammed Mustafa

"It was a brilliant rainy day. It was a spectacle to watch it, as the sanctuary was a home where one found solace not only for the animals but for us as well. We experienced oneness with nature, peace and the overwhelming excitement of the dogs that they never remained quiet. It appeared to be a greeting, inviting us to play with them. " - Jeffrey Joju

"All the dogs are too sweet to the point that I almost forgot to take pictures of them!" - Clara Kumarini Supeno

"All I could think of at the mention of cat house was, ” whoa cat house? i didn’t bring my battle armour.” I mean, in my defense, I’ve never interacted with cats prior to this. I was honestly really afraid of interacting with the cats." - Christabel Rae Mervyn   She later overcame her fears and cats were cuddling up to her. :)

"When we entered the stables, we were greeted with a welcoming grin from the youngest among the clan. He was so happy to see us. I have never seen a horse in such close prozimity and it was exciting thoroughly splendid moment for me. We were right in time for their meal and observed how calm and majestic they look. Initially, I was faintly scared but later gradually got close to them. " - Jeffrey Joju

"After the trip, I felt much closer to animals. I’ve learned a lot through the stories of their life, and it make me feel more responsible to them. A very big thank to Noah Ark for the great time with all the little friends! I’m really glad to have joined this trip, and I hope I can come again sometime soon." Tran Vu Phuong Hoa
