"He has also taken up a commercial unit which had been previously allocated to him at The Animal Lodge, a facility for pet farms and animal shelters managed by NParks at Sungei Tengah, allowing him to continue with his pet boarding business, they said."JTC and NParks had suggested other sites for the tenant to tender for the petting farm but they were assessed by the tenant to be unsuitable.
JTC Corporation is the incoming landlord for the area while NParks manages the land occupied by the farm, located at 81 Seletar West Farmway 5. The farm announced on Wednesday that it will shut its doors on Jan 10 as the area it sits on has been earmarked for redevelopment.
Home to several animals including a horse, marabou stork and cassowary, the place is popular among families with young children.
The family is now making preparations to rehome its 50 or so animals to other farms in Lim Chu Kang and Sungei Tengah, and even Malaysia.
