Odee, a 7+yo GR up for adoption!

Look who we have here! A couple of weeks ago, we were appealing for a fosterer for a GR (Golden Retriever) who lives in a factory but was left behind when the factory vacated ( L was very kind to step up to foster Odee and has taken extremely good care of him meanwhile.

We know of Odee from a few years back. Our volunteers first saw him when we went to his factory to catch the female dogs for sterilization under PID (Project Industrial Dogs). When we asked about his limp, we were told by the workers that it was an old injury and that he has already seen a vet.

In April this year, we were alerted about him again. We went down to the now empty factory and searched around but he and the rest of the dogs were nowhere to be seen. As it was about to pour, we turned to leave and actually saw him standing behind us wagging, though he did not respond to us calling for him before that! We grabbed him and he went into the carrier quite willingly too. It was time for a new life. Unfortunately, we could not locate the other dogs that were previously with him.

Clean and comfortable and dozing off!

Odee is now ready for adoption and he is as cheerful as can be! We felt the serious looking photo does not do him justice, and the photo on the right is too cute not to be posted. :P Odee is looking for a place to call home, after having been on the streets for so long. He is both dog and child friendly. If you can look past the fact that he limps (he has four legs but walks on three), please email to enquire about this lovely boy. Thank you!

Newsletter June 2016: Noah's Ark CARES


Dear All
On 9 May 2016 Noah's Ark CARES was awarded charity status by Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY). This is indeed a great achievement to have attained this. It is positive affirmation that CARES has contributed significantly to the Singapore community through its work in animal welfare despite channeling most of its funds to help the sanctuary in Malaysia.

Following the change in status and the stricter regulations under the Charities Act, we were strongly advised by our accountants to ensure compliance and for good corporate governance - a clear separation of activities with funding of the Singapore and Malaysian activities should be made. As such, the sanctuary will be setting up a new entity to take over the running of the sanctuary in Malaysia. 
We will be redirecting all requests, donations and inquiries regarding to the sanctuary to the following email address
There has been much misperception and misinterpretation of this separation by many persons. It is a decision that was not taken lightly or without much deliberation. However with the increased regulations and requirements we were advised that this separation of accounts would be the neatest option. I will continue to head CARES and will highlight the work that has and continue to be done in Singapore. The CARES Facebook will now posts the community work that it has been doing in Singapore as well as feature the many dogs and cats that we have sterilized and that we deem adoptable. I do hope that you will consider them should you be considering a companion.
The new entity will be headed by a new team selected by Raymund Wee and I am sure you will continue to support his good work at the sanctuary.
I would also like to thank all our supporters and volunteers that have made this journey such a rewarding one - I know that we will never be able to save all the homeless animals but the many that we have been able to has made it all worthwhile. But more importantly it is because of all of you that we managed to achieve what we have been able to do.
CARES because we do and I do hope you will too. Do please continue to follow our work in Singapore as we start this new entity focusing on work done locally. It may not be on such a large scale but the work and the dedication is just as impressive.
I believe that everything happens for a reason and that is why I always look forward to every new challenge that comes our way. I just hope that you will also come for the ride.
Thank you.
