It was started in 1982 by Dr Sing Kong Yuen to provide a more personalised boutique service to Singapore pet owners and to do clinical research and education of Singapore pet owners.

Since 1997, Toa Payoh Vets have been making corporate social responsibility as part of its operations. Employees and associate vets participate actively in the main project, Be Kind To Pets commenced since 1997 when the internet was at its infancy and when web pages were grey.

Now in 2015, the world wide web has enabled Be Kind To Pets to share veterinary information to more people.
