How can I help?

The team of independent volunteers behind Saving the Siameses are currently grateful and overwhelmed by the support of Singaporeans in this rescue mission.

Currently, none of the cats have yet been opened for adoption or visitation as they must be thoroughly cleaned, tested for disease and vaccinated if their conditions permit, so that they do not infect a human household or d ‘other cats. They also need time to settle down.

If you would like to see if there is another way you can help, or if you have any questions, you can send a private message to their Facebook page. You may need to be patient as they have received a lot of messages.

And this cutie in particular.
