Singapore, 19 October 2010 –
For the 1st time multiply players in the pet scene in Singapore are joining hands to do their bit for animal community as part of the World Animals’ Day (WAD) celebrations. WAD is a month-long event celebrated round the world in October every year to remind us of the myraid of animals whom we share the planet with and to reflect on the ways that make our world a better place in which to co-exist with.
A pet wellness centre, pet food supplier, veterinary clinic and canine trainer have teamed up to raise funds for Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (ACRES), an animal protection charity, and also to promote the adoption of homeless animals in shelters, through a theatre screening of “earthlings”, an award-winning documentary film about the suffering of animlas for food, fashion, pets, entertainment and medical research.
Powerful, informative and thought-provoking, Earthlings is by far the most comprehensive documentary produced on the relationship between nature, animals and human economic interests. The film, directed by Shaun Monson, is narrated by two time Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix and features music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby. More about the movie at http:://www.earthlings.com/.
Supported by Shaw Organisation, a vegan dinner reception followed by a charity screening will be held from 6 pm on 1 November at Shaw Cineplex Bugis where fund raised will be donated to ACRES
In conjuction with the event, multilateral initiative involving various players in the pet industry will be launched to promote the adoption of homeless animals in shelters here. Pet wellness cetre Petopia, pet food distributor Link2Link, Acacia Veterinary Clinic and Aristomilago Pawzllywood Academy of DogSports (APawz) will be annoucing their assistance to adoptive families of shelter animals to aid them in rehabiliating these animals and giving them a new lease of life.
