HELP FUND SINGAPORE’S FIRST PET CAFE HIRING PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES & SPECIAL NEEDS
Back in 2016, I've had an idea and a dream to start a PET CAFE with a catch - hiring people with disabilities and special needs in Singapore.
Starting a Pet Cafe in Singapore requires a HUGE FUNDING. Roping in investors will mean that this idea gets commercialise, which deviates from its original intent - LOVE, HOPE & COMPASSION.
As such, I am turning into CROWD FUNDING as a source of funds generation.
WHY HIRE PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES & SPECIAL NEEDS?
The Social Stigma against persons with disabilities & Special needs is very real. INTEGRATION back into society & ACCEPTANCE is key to providing them with HOPE, ACCEPTANCE & INCOME.
WHAT WILL THE EMPLOYEES DO IF THIS FUNDRAISER IS SUCCESSFUL?
We want to create job opportunities for the Disabled and Special Needs. They have been long forgotten and also been looked at differently by others.
Customers will have to clean up after their pets defecate. Employees are meant to work happily in a good working environment.
The employees will do things that we all usually do. Such as serving food, taking orders, cashiering roles and also food preparation roles depending on which they are comfortable with.
WHY A PET CAFE?
I have a profound love for dogs, having a Jack Russell Terrier myself that was purchased before the farm could use her for breeding & a Shih Tzu that was adopted after spending 6 years in a toilet by the previous owner.
A CENTRE FOR ADOPTION AND EDUCATION
It has always been my dream to do more for the animals. If successful, the Pet Cafe will be used as a Centre for Adoption Drives & Education.
More strays and abandoned dogs will be able to be matched and adopted into good homes. Prospective and existing owners can also learn more and then do more for their pets.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The funds collected will be used towards the setup of the Pet Cafe and assist us in steering it to a profit making Pet Cafe that is sustainable in the long run.
GIVING BACK TO THE SOCIETY
A percentage of the profits monthly will be Donated towards ANIMAL SHELTERS, helping to fund them through their operations. In the process, opening up MORE HOPE for the STRAY & ABANDONED DOGS population in Singapore.
