Don’t buy! Adopt!

In News flash on October 31, 2011 by Lock+Store

*DON’T BUY, ADOPT*
Tis’ the season of giving! Lock+Store, together with Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), is urging Singaporeans to consider adopting abandoned animals instead of buying them from local pet farms.

In 2010, SPCA took in 7,597 animals, which is an average of 600 unwanted animals each month. Last year, only about 100 abandoned animals were adopted each month.

To encourage more widespread animal adoption, Lock+Store has launched a series of postcards modelled by abandoned animals at SPCA. Each postcard features a dog, cat or a small animal currently at the shelter and their details are on the back of the postcard.

“Animals are not objects that you just store away. Buying more animals will only encourage animal breeders to increase the supply of puppies, kittens, hamsters, rabbits and guinea pigs on the market, while an ever growing numer of abandoned pets waste away from neglect. We want to get the community rethinking about animal adoption instead of buying,” says Ms Helen Ng, Chief Executive Officer of Lock+Store.

The photographs were taken by Lock+Store’s Manager and photography enthusiast Mr David Loo.

Help spread the word and give abandoned animals a new lease of life by purchasing a set of postcards at Lock+Store’s facilities in Chai Chee and Tanjong Pagar, and at selected retail outlets. A set of five postcards cost $5.

For bulk purchase, please _email us_ for more information.
