About Cat Welfare Society and NANAS

Cat Welfare Society
Its mission: "To Save Lives Through Sterilisation".

"The Cat Welfare Society is a charity dedicated to promoting the effective and humane management of the community (stray) cat population in Singapore.

It recognizes that the presence of a large community cat population can be a source of problems, but believes that the best way of keeping the population in check is not by trapping and killing them but by sterilising them.

Michelle Lee is the current president of the Society and has been with the Society since 2003, first as a volunteer and subsequently as a committee member.

Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary (NANAS)
Their mission is to provide a safe and secure home for the animal residents where they can live out their lives in happiness and eventually, die with dignity. To this end many of the animals are allowed to free run, and we create a natural settings for the others, more often than not resorting to using natural materials around us for example, bamboo stalks and attap.

Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary (NANAS) is one of the few private animal sanctuary which started in Singapore in 1995. It moved to Johore located in Pekan Nanas in June 2000 to an area with 10 hectares of land.

Noah's Ark CARES (Companion Animals Rescued & Education Society) was established in June 2005 to continue its work in Singapore. It runs educational program for schools, Project Catsnip and Project Industrial Dogs to help manage the population of stray dogs and cats.
