4 Marmosets, a species of monkey that are often the victim of illegal wildlife trade, were found abandoned on the doorstep of our pet hospital in Serangoon, Singapore on 19thApril 2018. Our Singapore team contacted ACRES (Animal Concerns Research & Education Society) who responded immediately and brought them back to their rescue centre, where they were observed overnight before being taken to the Singapore Zoo.
Hopefully they will be able to live out the rest of their lives there. These victims of illegal wildlife trade in Singapore are left on our doorstep. Although we are thankful that their previous owners left them with us to take appropriate action to rescue them instead of releasing them into the wild.
Marmosets are not native species in Singapore and may not have survived in the wild after being kept as pets.
