Shelter Programme

SMU PAW Shelter Programme is a year-long programme whereby SMU students embark on a hands-on volunteering experience at our partner animal shelters. On top of enjoying greater insights into the local animal welfare scene and adoption, students get to interact with and develop precious bonds with both animal and human friends! 


Students selected to be part of the programme may fulfil their Community Service requirements subject to certain conditions.
