Singapore’s SPCA (The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals) started in the 1800’s, and was revived again in 1947.
HDB stands for Housing and Development Board, which manages public housing in Singapore. Eighty percent of residents live in HDB units. Prue Harrison mentions that HDB rules have prohibited cats, and have only allowed very small dogs, although Project ADORE has changed that to a degree.
Project ADORE (ADOption and REhoming of dogs) allows some
medium-sized dogs (15 kg in weight, 50 cm in height) to be adopted
in HDB housing under specific conditions.
Black dog syndrome - some studies have shown that black dogs get
adopted at less frequent rates than other color dogs, and this can
also lead to higher euthanasia rates.
Thank you Prue Harrison!
