Overview

As Singapore moves towards becoming a City in Nature, people and animals are increasingly sharing a common space. Community animals such as cats are a part of our urban ecosystem and a key component of caring is managing their populations humanely.

Programmes such as the Stray Cat Sterilisation Programme (SCSP) involving multiple stakeholders including government agencies and Animal Welfare Groups (AWGs), along with initiatives such as public education on responsible feeding and responsible pet ownership and enforcement against pet abandonment would sustainably reduce the number of stray cats on our streets.

Apart from educating the public on how to interact with cats, there is a need to develop a professional, competent and core group of animal management specialists who are often called in to mitigate human-cat conflict. This programme aims to equip animal management specialists with the skills to perform their work while ensuring public and personnel safety, and animal welfare. In particular, this intermediate elective module wil focus on humane capture and handling of cats.

Programme Objectives

  • Understand cat behavioural ecology, suffering and animal welfare;
  • Humane capture and handling of cats while ensuring public safety, personnel safety and animal welfare.

Facilitators

Programme facilitators are locally-based industry professionals with knowledge and experience in animal management.
