If you haven’t heard, there has been a revision in dog size criteria and you can now can now own bigger dogs in your HDB flat. But here’s the catch: this change is only applicable to local mixed-breed canines that are up for adoption.
According to the Animal & Veterinary Service, this type of dogs can now be up to 55cm tall, with no weight limit. Previously, only dogs under 50cm and up to 15kg could be rehomed to HDB flats
This scheme is part of Project Adore, which was launched in 2012 and allows HDB dwellers to adopt a local mixed-breed dog, typically larger in size than HDB’s approved breeds. Under Project Adore, these dogs cannot be bought from shops or breeders and must be adopted from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Action for Singapore Dogs, Save Our Street Dogs, Exclusively Mongrels and Causes for Animals. Potential adopters will be screened and must abide by stringent ownership regulations.
However, if for whatever reason you’re not eligible for this scheme, you can still own dogs of the 12 breeds featured below in your HDB flat.
