About Us

Be the Voice for the Voiceless.

Through organising community service and awareness programmes, SMU PAW wants to bring across a simple message which is to treat animals humanely, with respect, kindness and compassion.

We want to be able to contribute to a world where humans and animals can coexist peacefully and respect their space as we share this world together. 

As proud advocates for causes such as Adopt Don’t Shop, SMU PAW is on a constant journey to be the voice for the voiceless. 

We hope to instill a shared passion for animal welfare within the community, nurturing all-inclusive, activist attitudes towards animals and humans alike.

Mission, Vision, Values

4 Key Values



We believe demonstrating proper care and kindness towards animals is the foundation of animal welfare.


Causes We Stand With

Adopt Don’t Shop

Adopting a pet at the shelter will not only save its life, but also the life of another animal in need by freeing up space and giving it a chance to find a forever home too.

Against Animal Cruelty
No animal should be allowed to suffer under the hand of cruelty, which can range from neglect to abuse, to malicious killing. As living creatures who also possess emotional intelligence, animals should be treated with empathy and compassion.
Against Animal Discrimination
Regardless of colour, breed or size, all domestic animals deserve the chance to be in a loving home, and be treated with the same respect and care.
Responsible Pet Ownership
By being a responsible pet owner, it is important to research and understand what it takes to better care for your pet. Owning a pet is a long-term commitment and at no time should neglecting or abandoning it be an option.
Mindful Consumption Habits

Food, clothes, or beauty, have hidden costs. Animal testing, inhumane farming, unsustainable resource depletion etc. are pertinent issues that affect animals. We spread awareness to encourage conscious decisions that can help mitigate detrimental impacts.

Wildlife Conservation
The practice of protecting plant and animal species and their habitats in order to maintain a healthy wildlife species or populations.
