If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. Mark Twain

Spay & Neuter Month in conjunction with World Animal Day (4 October 2010)


• To celebrate animal life in all its forms

• To celebrate humankind’s relationship with the animal kingdom

• To acknowledge the diverse roles that animals play in our lives – from being our companions, supporting and helping us, to bringing a sense of wonder into our lives

• To acknowledge and be thankful for the way in which animals enrich our lives

Zeus Communications launches its Spay & Neuter month for October 2010

Do you often feel sorry for the stray dogs and cats wandering around factories or on the streets, without a home or proper food? Are you one of the kind souls who brings dinner for the stray puppies and kittens in the industrial estates?

Puppies born in construction sites

Aren't they adorable? Little do they know they have a lifetime of pain and suffering ahead of them.

No matter how cute or adorable, these poor strays will most probably never experience love and a family to call their own

All safe with mommy now. How long will they remain safe for? Away from traffic and people abusing them?

 Kind workers built a hutch for the puppies. Is it really going to protect them from the sun & rain? Do you think the puppies would stay in the hutch, by the side of a busy road?

The number of these homeless and unwanted strays will continue to grow due to uncontrolled breeding. Sterilization is a solution to control their population. This is a more humane alternative, as compared to the unnecessary culling of innocent strays.

In conjunction with World Animal Day (4 October 2010), Zeus Communications is sponsoring 10 dogs and 10 cats to be spayed. Our way of showing our love for the street dogs and cats. Just follow the instructions below to do your part.

1) Write to us by 10 October 2010 (Sunday).

2) After receiving the confirmation letter from us, spaying of animals can be done throughout the entire month of October.

* Email us at dogstalk@starhub.net.sg.

* Please include the following information on the dog / cat

* Where can we find it (factory address)?

* Is it a male or a female?

* What is the breed and colour (attach photo if possible)

* How old is it? (estimated)

* What is your full name and address? (so we can contact you)

* Please also email us a scanned copy of your identification card, OR give the vet clinic a copy when you bring the animal in for spaying.

* After we receive your email, we will send you a letter by post, stating the date and time of the vet appointment.

* Do not give the dog / cat food or water the night before the appointment.

* Take the letter and the dog / cat to the vet on the appointed date and time.

* Collect the dog / cat in the evening on the same day.

Note: The dog / cat will be ear-tipped and given one vaccination.

World Animal Day is intended as a day of celebration for anyone in the world who cares about animals. Play your part and show the animals that you care. Go vegetarian for a day as a sign of respect to your animals.

Hurry and help the street dogs and cats today – the free Spay & Neuter project is limited to 10 dogs and 10 cats only!

From May to September 2010, we have sterilized a total of 22 cats and 21 dogs - that's a lot of catching that we had to do but we don't mind the hard work, as long as you continue supporting us like you have! Together, we CAN make the world a slightly better place for the street animals. 

The Spay & Neuter project would cost Zeus Communications a total of $2000 to sponsor 10 dogs and 10 cats for sterilization. 

1) Ms Mona read our article and immediately wrote in to offer to contribute $500 towards this project. She also pledged that she would go vegetarian on World Animal Day as a sign of respect for all these animals we love so dearly. 

2) Mount Pleasant Animal Medical Centre will kindly sponsor the spaying of 2 dogs and 2 cats for our Spay & Neuter month in October 2010. 

Thank you everyone, for caring.
