    The operator of a controversial pet boarding facility has been arrested and is “assisting with investigations on alleged animal welfare-related offences”, said Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Home Affairs and National Development Sun Xueling in a Facebook post on Monday (7 January). The operator of Platinium Dogs Club, a 30-year-old woman, was arrested on Sunday, said the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) in response to media queries. Sun said that the AVA is continuing investigations into Platinium, including making further inspections. “Investigations will be comprehensively carried out, and we will take enforcement action on any animal welfare infringements,” the MP for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC added. “Several” pet owners have been reunited with their dogs that were being previously boarded with Platinium, said Sun, who did not mention how many. The AVA had previously taken 18 dogs and one rabbit into temporary custody after raiding the facility’s premises, a private semi-detached house at 7 Galistan Avenue, on 29 and 31 December. “Let’s stay calm and let the authorities investigate the case thoroughly and fairly,” added Sun, echoing the views of Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam who posted about the saga surrounding the facility on Facebook two days ago. “Singaporeans can rest assured: there will be thorough investigations and there will be due process. Anyone who has engaged in illegal acts will face the consequences,” Shanmugam said in the post. A Google search showed that a number listed on Platinium’s website – now defunct – was listed on the websites of two other businesses: flower delivery service LaFrenchRoses and Raffles Tuition Centre. According to Domain Big Data, platiniumdogsclub.com was registered by a Charlotte Liew on 18 April last year. The name was also linked to the sites rafflestuitioncentre.com and lafrenchroses.com. When asked if Liew was the woman arrested, the AVA declined to comment. Checks by Yahoo News Singapore on the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority’s Bizfile+ system showed that LaFrenchRoses was registered by a sole-proprietor, a Singaporean of the same name, on 4 January last year. Liew’s address was listed as 7 Galistan Avenue on the document, while the location of LaFrenchRoses was listed under another address. Platinium, which was billed on its website as “fully air-conditioned daily”, “cage-free” with staff having “more than 20 years of experience in handling dogs”, was not registered. The Urban Redevelopment Authority prohibits the provision of commercial pet boarding services in private residential properties. Yahoo News Singapore understands that only farms that board and breed dogs can apply for a licence from the AVA. “Commercial pet boarding facilities should be located in suitable farm areas or on commercial premises as they may cause dis-amenities to the surrounding residents. They should not be located on private residential premises where they are approved primarily for residential purposes,” said a URA spokesperson on 31 December last year. Prince the shetland sheepdog still missing Several allegations of negligence made by dog owners who left their pets at Platinium earlier last month had prompted an investigation by the AVA on the facility. One dog owner told Yahoo News Singapore that QQ, her 14-year-old Jack Russell Terrier, died after a stay at Platinium. Separately, a worker at Mobile Pet Cremation Services, a pet cremation company, told Yahoo News Singapore on 31 December last year that he had handled requests from a woman associated with Platinium in December. The worker said three dogs were taken from the premises on separate occasions for cremation, with one mass cremated. On 2 January, the police turned up at the Platinium premises after a group of people gathered outside the facility at Galistan Avenue, demanding information on Prince, a seven-year-old shetland sheepdog which went missing under Platinium’s care. The dog remains missing as of Monday night.

The dog remains missing as of Monday night. Ad: “Preliminary investigations revealed that a 40-year-old man from the group had alleged that he was hit by the vehicle that was reversing out of the compound of the unit. The man was subsequently conveyed to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital in a conscious state,” said the police later on the same day. A 33-year-old driver of the vehicle and the group of people comprising seven women and four men, including the 40-year-old man, are assisting with police investigations. In a joint statement issued on 5 January, the AVA and police advised the public not to take matters into their own hands or engage in any actions that may violate the law or cause harm to themselves and others. “The public should also refrain from speculation, and let the investigations take their course,” the authorities added. The saga has also sparked an online petition calling for stiffer penalties against animal abusers on Change.org, which has gathered close to 58,000 signatures since it started on 3 January. Under the Animal & Birds Act, a person who is convicted of failing to care for animals in the course of conducting an animal-related business may be fined up to $40,000, jailed up to two years, or both. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/operator-platinium-dogs-club-arrested-mp-sun-xueling-145500113.html

    Dear members and guests who are joining our professionally maintained community forums. Every since we've asked you to help us keeping this community forums alive, it's been full of life with so many professional and amazing members contributing towards it. However, our budget is almost over, and we are running out of time. You guys know we've never stopped anyone from using adblockers, but by many users are not whitelisting, it doesn't make any income to the servers cost, domains renewal, and other maintenance costs. You can start the fundraiser by private messaging me. Click here to drop me a PM IBanking Details : DBS Savings 0110054642 Paypal link https://www.paypal.me/edmwsg Thank you so much in advanced. Donations FAQs: Why this donation campaign. The ads do not generate enough revenue to pay for the server costs. Why do ads do not cover for the costs, I already whitelisted and sometimes click on them. We really thank you for whitelisting us. It's still a lot. Unfortunately, not everyone has whitelisted us and block ads, affecting the revenues. Why do I make a donation. We keep getting messages about how people really love the edmw . We love it too. While donation are not compulsory, it means that the server gets paid for and the you can continue to use the site you are fond of. What do I get in return to make a donations. The running of edmw. Think about how much edmw gives you back, updates, news, discussions, help, knowledge, friends, family, community, edmw if part of a life for many. What makes edmw different from others, I already have other sites to look at. In addition to the things already mentioned above, we at edmw prefer quality over quantity, this is done at the administrative level, something that not many sites do out there. What does edmw get out of this and what do you guys do with the funds. Each dollar and penny, everything goes into the server costs, other running costs and maintenance of edmw and fapfapfap I have some problems / issues with site not related to the server issues, why should I donate. Have you ever let staff know about it, we can always sort it out. If the issues cannot be fixed by the staff and or are really important, then feel free to contact the admins. You can always contact me to get faster replies. If something is not fixed yet, does not mean it will not be fixed later. Why should I donate if the site is not working properly - it's slow and had uptime issues. This is the part of the many reasons the donation campaign is started. The site is ever growing with users and visitors. Due to this reason, the server we are on is not enough to serve you all. We need to get on a faster server, which is not possible without more money. There are some other questions / suggestions not mentioned in this FAQ. Feel free to ask or suggest about it. If it is completely unrelated to the donations, you can make a new topic in Site / Forum Feedback about it.
