Do You See That Doggie in the Shelter?



For the last 50 years children all over the world have sung, “How Much is That Doggie in the Window”. This song, while catchy, is about a puppy in a pet-store and encourages a culture of puppy-mills and backyard breeders, which all too often includes terrible animal abuse and neglect. SPCA Singapore partnered with SPCA International to promote a new version of this Patti Page classic. “Do You See That Doggie in the Shelter” speaks about the homeless dogs and cats all over the world, the animals that have so much love to give and in need of a home. The video made by SPCA Singapore features caricatures of real dogs available for adoption from their shelter. It is our hope that is version of the song becomes the new anthem of animal welfare organizations all over the world, and that all people move away from pet-stores and puppy mills and opt to adopt furry shelter animals. SPCA International has been able to help SPCA Singapore place a children's book similar to this video in pre-school and elementary classrooms throughout the U.S. and Canada. If you know a pre-school or elementary school that would like to add this book to their library, please contact us at [email protected].
