3241. INTERN. Nimbus goes to Noah's Ark in NANAS. Animal Activism in Singapore

Singapore is a small city of around 6 million residents. Around 80% of them live in high rise apartments in townships like Ang Mo Kio and Toa Payoh.  Many of the younger generation volunteer at the animal welfare shelters to care for the stray dogs, cats and the homeless.

The licence issued is valid for 7 days. If the licence has expired, there may be "requests" for the vet to issue another valid one without physical examination of the dog on compassionate grounds or expediency.  This is dishonest professional misconduct. The dog needs to be examined again.
