22 Puppies For Adoption in AVA Singapore

Saw this in my Facebook wall's friend. If you're in Singapore and a dog lover, are you going to let this opportunity pass you by?

Help!! Puppies for Adoption

Please help to pass the email below around to your friends and anyone interested. These puppies need a home. Damn those smugglers. And AVA is not making things easier by slapping a 6 mth quarantine and an exorbitant fee. The most urgent case is the Golden Retriever. She will be out of quarantine in June. I do not want to think of what AVA would do if no one adopts her. I have someone who is willing to sponsor the $3200 fee for the Goldie if the person can give the doggie a home. (She already has many dogs and cannot take another one.) ___________________ Dear Sir/Mdm, Thank you for your interest in adopting the puppies that were smuggled into Singapore. We have 22 puppies that are currently looking for homes. Details of the puppies are as follows :

1. Golden Retriever Female Date of quarantine release: 22 June 2011 Approx age at time of release: 10 months Pug (tan) (1 female, 1 male) Date of quarantine release:29 July 2011 Approx age at time of release: 7 months Shih Tzu (white & brown) (2 female, 1 male) Date of quarantine release: 29 July 2011 Approx age at time of release: 7 months Poodle (red) (3 female, 2 male) 29 July 2011 7 months British Bulldog (white & brown) (2 female, 2 male) 29 July 2011 7 months Poodle (red) (2 female, 1 male) 10 September 2011 7 months Japanese Spitz (3 female, 1 male) 10 September 2011 7 months

2 . The puppies have to undergo a 6 month quarantine to ensure that they are free from rabies. In addition, the puppies will be sterilised, microchipped and licensed before they are released from quarantine. The new owners for the puppies will be required to pay the quarantine fees which will include the costs of all vaccinations (such as puppy vaccinations and rabies vaccinations), rabies antibody titre testing, de-worming, external parasite treatment, feed and care for the 6 month quarantine period, sterilisation, microchipping and licensing. The total estimated quarantine fees is approximately $3,200 and will be billed progressively to the successful adopters during the quarantine period.

3. Members of the public who are interested in adopting the puppies are required to go through interview at AVA, during which they will be able to interact with the puppies. If you are interested in adopting any of the puppies, please send an email to

Sheikh Adra Bux, (Manager, Sembawang Animal Quarantine Station) at ;

4. Please indicate the breed and sex of puppy you would like to adopt in your email and send it to Mr Bux or Dr Kaur at the above email addresses by 23 May 2011.
