NParks' Pets’ Day Out Brings Together Pet-Lovers And Promotes Rehoming Of Animals

Pets’ Day Out, organised by the NParks’ Animal and Veterinary Service, is a monthly event that brings together animal welfare groups, pet businesses, veterinarians and pet lovers through pet-related activities.

The first Pets’ Day Out was organised on Saturday, 17 August 2019, and was held at HortPark alongside NPark’s signature Gardeners’ Day Out event.

Earlier this year, NParks took over as the lead agency for the animal and wildlife management from the former Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority.

This zone was aligned with Pets’ Day Out’s aim at promoting the rehoming of shelter animals.

Engaging the Pet Community

Pets’ Day Out is part of NParks’ efforts to engage the community of pet owners in Singapore in relation to pet-related issues. Through these community events, NParks aims to gain feedback to shape and strengthen animal health and welfare standards in Singapore, including traceability of animals.

Said Ms Sun Xueling, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Home Affairs and National Development and Guest-of-Honour at the inaugural event, “To truly safeguard animal health and welfare, we must ensure responsibility and a duty of care along the value chain for which our pets and community animals come into contact with. So we need to work with breeders, boarders, pet associations, pet businesses, veterinarians, AWGs and the public to decide on those common standards to adhere to and to leverage technology where possible.”
