Policy and Legislation
LSPCA strives to promote the Protection of Animals Act 0f 1970, Cap 66:01, section 3(1) which (a) clearly prohibits any person to cruelly beat, kick, ill-treat, overload, override, torture, infuriate, terrify or cause to procure or permit unnecessary suffering to any animal. Section 3(1) (b) forbids carrying or conveying, or permitting in a manner or position as to cause unnecessary suffering to any animal.
Animal welfare and law enforcement encompasses our daily work with pet owners, livestock keepers, canine security firms, vendors, the police, animal transporters, community leaders, schools and children. We believe that improved animal welfare contributes to the wellbeing of people, animals and our environment as a whole.
