Breaking News from DaphneyLand...
I am Michael, a copywriter from Singapore, working for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, (SPCA Singapore). An animal welfare shelter and organization.
As you know, for the past 50 years, folks have grown up singing “How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?” A song that has inspired so, so many uninformed visits to pet stores – and so much support for unethical puppy mills.
But together, we can change this. We could get our children to sing “Do You See That Doggie in the Shelter?” instead.
Before the late Patti Page, the singer of “How Much Is That Doggie In the Window”, passed away in 2013, she actually recorded a version that was about the shelter instead. In her own words: “I am changing my tune. I want ‘Doggie in the Shelter’ to become an anthem for homeless animals everywhere”.
Today, we want to help materialize Patti Page’s vision. To teach her new lyrics to children everywhere, and make them more popular than the original ones. So children will grow up knowing about and planning for adoption, and choose not to buy from pet stores.
But first, we really need your help.
Over the past one year, we have created an animated sing-along music video, starring real Singapore shelter doggies and kitties: www.youtube.com/watch?v=qa4quLuIfl4
If you like what you see and it’s not too much to ask, could we get your help to share our video on your Facebook page on World Animal Day, October 4?
We are hoping for 100 shelters and welfare organisations around the world to share the video on the same day. As a statement of solidarity against pet stores and puppy mills.
Together, we can make “Do You See That Doggie in the Shelter” the ‘doggie song’ of our next generation. We could help many more homeless doggies and kitties to find a home.
And one day, puppy mills could become a thing of the past.

Happy Gotcha Day to the Hound formerly known as Theo (now Bentley); From his adoptive family: "We are ecstatic the arrival of our new furbaby - Bentley! Aunt Dawn has been getting him ready for us and today was Bentley Gottacha Day!!! So far Bentley's favorite activities are marking everything in the backyard, drooling, and sharing his Dad's lap with his his Basset sister Daisy (she isn't totally on board with that one yet). Bentley has a super butt-waggling tail and appears to love everything and everyone.
Like all proud new parents, we will be cluttering your feed with pictures of our adorable new furbaby so fair warning! ;) " ... See MoreSee Less
