Appeal from ACRES
Just got this email from ACRES :-
SAVE OUR SOCIETY!
ACRES IS ON THE BRINK OF CLOSING DOWN.
We need your fast and immediate action to prevent Acres from closing
down due to serious financial problems. We have only S$2000 left in the
bank and unfortunately we are unable to carry on at this rate.
We have been trying our best to raise funds but we need your help to
tide over the next few months.
This work year has seen Acres take on several campaigns. Our recent
undercover investigations into the illegal pet trade in Singapore
revealed that one in five local pet shops sold illegal species of
wildlife. This led to a raid on 20 pet shops with numerous animals
confiscated. Our Wildlife Rescue Team's work has also led to the rescue
of more than 140 animals from the illegal wildlife trade, in a period of
only 10 months. We're also working on establishing the first wildlife
rescue centre in Singapore. More details of our work are enclosed below.
Currently, for this work year, we've spent S$87,000, with more than 82%
spent on our animal protection programmes. As always, majority of the
money we raise goes towards helping the animals.
I've attached the Acres brochure to this email with the donation form.
I've also attached the giro form. Please help us continue our important
work in ending the exploitation of all animals. I'm confident that with
your support and donation, we will be able to continue to make a real
difference for animals.
We are also working hard towards setting up an Acres animal rescue
centre in Pulau Ubin which has approved in principle by the governmental
PLEASE DON'T LET ALL OUR EFFORTS, ACHIEVEMENTS AND HARD WORK OVER THE
LAST FOUR YEARS FOR THE ANIMALS GO TO WASTE!
I can't attach their forms, but ACRES website is at www.acres.org.sg and all their donation information is there.
