ACRES CARNIVAL 2014: A BIG THANK YOU TO ONE AND ALL!
On behalf of the Animals and all of us at ACRES, we would like to thank all our supporters, vendors, and volunteers who have been a part of the first ever ACRES Carnival 2014! Without your dedication and support for the animals, and our cause to end animal cruelty in Singapore, the carnival would never have been as fun as it was!
Specifically, thanks to NYC for sponsoring the event venue.
BOUNCY CASTLES for sponsoring the bouncy castles.
MUNCH, GREENZILLA, and VEGAN BURG for the awesome spread of vegan food!
BAR4RENT for their quaint, animal themed mocktails.
APOSTROPHE, for pulling lattes!
SOYATO AND POPAGANDA for beating the heat with their great tasting soy ice creams and all-natural fruit popsicles, respectively.
ENMASSIVE for enlivening the party with emcee and decks!
ANIMAL MERCHANDISE for sponsoring a generous amount of merchandise to ACRES! Much love!
BUBBLY PETZ for promoting animal-cruelty free products, and raising funds during the Carnival!
Lastly, thanks to the amazing mascots: Mr Mozilla Firefox, Captain America, Spiderman, and Power Ranger who weathered the heat and stay a little longer just to bring more smiles on the faces of kids and adults alike!
As for our dedicated volunteers, who braved the rain, wind and sun, our heart-shaped thanks go out to you too!
WILDLIFE WARRIORS WILL BE RUNNING AND RAISING FUNDS FOR ACRES!
On the 27th of April 2014, 5 representatives from ACRES channelled their passion for running towards a good cause at the RUN350 event. Sabrina, Zhi Wei and Samuel took part in the 21km Half Marathon while Jocelyn and Kelvin ran the 10km race. Together they ran to help fundraise for ACRES.
Running is a metaphor of life. Runners run for various reasons and causes. And there is no better way to provide the animals with a voice by helping to create awareness. We are all one community – us , environment and animals.
Even though the run is over, show your support and appreciation for our 5 runners who have raced through different running categories. Help us to help the animals in need by donating to this cause!

SAL, THE MONITOR LIZARD
Thanks to the Nparks officers at Sungei Buloh Nature Reserve, who spotted a fully grown Water Monitor lizard, with a fishing line dangling from the mouth, the hook lodged inside the mouth. "Sal", as we named him or her was handed over to us by the park officers to attempt and remove the hook. Upon examination, we found that the hook was too deep, slightly lodged further down the throat.
The routine methods of removal failed to work, and any further probing may threaten Sal's survival in the wild. The line was fully removed to prevent inflammation to the jaws and we handed Sal back to the officers for release.We hope like our resident Pig-nosed turtle Captain Hook whose hook was also impossible to remove, was passed out after 2 years at ACRES! We wish all the best for Sal!
