We had a great time imparting knowledge on how to be responsible beings by co-existing with our wildlife, and we hope you had fun too!
Kudos to all the kids who have won the goodie bags by taking part in the games; not only do you have cool items to bring home, but you now can help to spread the word about treating animals, whether cute or scary-looking, with compassion and respect!
Thanks again to everyone who made last weekend a success!

MCDONALD’S TO EGG INDUSTRY: NO MORE CAGES! 10th September 2015
McDonald’s is saying no to cages! The company just announced that it will move to sourcing 100% cage-free eggs throughout Canada and the United States. This move will spare nearly 8 million animals from life inside cramped cages. This decision makes it clear that keeping hens in cramped cages has no place in the future of food production.
While cage-free doesn’t equal cruelty-free, getting birds out of cages is a major improvement. There are plant-based alternatives to eggs (which ACRES continues to promote), but for those who eat (or sell) eggs, cage-free is a big step in the right direction.
We hope that McDonald’s in Singapore and throughout Asia will follow this example set by McDonald’s in North America, and switch to cage-free eggs!
For as little as $1 a day, you can be directly responsible for giving a rescued animal a chance at a happy and healthy life. Among the many residents we have at the AWRC, choose to sponsor between Spongebob the Star Tortoise, Cyclops the Pig-Nosed Turtle, Stubby the Ball Python or Kanmani the Green Iguana!
