Happy Endings  
 

Here are some of the many successful adoptions we have had at the SPCA.

If you have adopted from us before and have a story to share with us, please email us at education@spca.org.sg, along with a short write-up of your life with the new member of the family and photos to go with the story.

** One of our adopted pet cats Gandalf has played an important role in the life of Gina Ho and family. We thank her for sharing how Gandalf has helped her husband Edgar Lu cope better in his illness. It is another testament to the fact that pets are a wonderful comfort and good stress relievers.

Pepper, Adding Spice To Our Lives

I had always thought of having a dog as a companion, but did not want to buy from a pet farm or shop. Hence, I started looking into dog adoptions. On 13 August 2017, I chanced upon an adoption drive on SPCA's website and decided to submit an application to adopt one of the dogs, Oscar.

I was elated when my application was approved! On 19 August, my family and I took a trip down to SPCA to interact with Oscar and realised he was such a shy sweetheart. We brought him home and renamed him Pepper. We are proud to share that Pepper has passed his basic obedience training course and has brought great joy to my family every day that he is with us. He is definitely well-loved and is such a happy boy!

Thanks SPCA!

Randy, The Fortunate One

A while ago, we read a newspaper article about animals being abused and could not understand how people could do horrible things to these innocent animals. We decided that as members of this society, we needed to help animals which have been abused or abandoned.

We visited SPCA to look at the animals available for adoption, and came across Randy the rabbit. When we first met him, he was very scared of us and would run to hide if we tried to pat him. Despite so, we were patient and continued to stay with him. Gradually, he shuffled out of his hiding spot and began sniffing our hands. We fell in love with his gentle demeanour and there and then, decided to give him a forever home with us. Once he came home, he started to show a little of his mischievous side! We found out that he loves vegetables, cuddles, and squeezing between our knees if we are kneeling near him. We love him so dearly and are so happy we adopted him!

A note for those who are looking to adopt an animal: To be a responsible pet owner, you must ensure that you are financially stable and able to afford necessities like food, a play pen with proper accessories, and medical care for visits to the vet. A pet is for life!

Mungo, The Lucky Traveller

We adopted Mungo (previously known as Tommy) in January 2017. He was about 6 months old when we adopted him.  

Mungo moved to the UK with us when we relocated a few months ago and he is now living in Devon, which is probably the most dog-friendly part of the UK, and the UK is already a very dog friendly country. He comes with us to cafes for breakfast where dogs are welcome indoors, gets hours of walk every day across fields and woods, or even down to the beach where he can run for kilometres off his leash. He will always be a little nervous around strangers but that's OK.

He has discovered that he loves nothing more than chasing rabbits across the fields, fortunately rabbits are faster than him so he never catches them. He has also seen snow, which he doesn't know what to do with but loves racing around in and trying to eat. The climate here suits his thick fur, but the only downside is that without the Singapore's heat and humidity, he will require a lot more exercise before he is ready to settle down.

Although it is not always fun and games, but he is loved and well looked after by the whole family and very, very happy with his life in the UK. We thank SPCA Singapore for rescuing him off the streets and allowing us to have a chance to give him a forever home.

Rover, The Good Boy

My wife and I brought Rover home in April 2018, and we have grown to love him so much. We learned that he had been at SPCA for the past six years, so he seemed quite scared on our first drive home from the shelter.

We had prepared a whole range of toys for him at home, including food puzzles. However, he was not interested in strong, durable plastic toys. He preferred cloth/fabric toys which he could play with and destroy in a matter of hours. So, my wife and I handmade him toys from old blankets, clothes, and socks to keep him entertained for hours on end. We found out that he is an avid lover of food and he is sure to approach us with very soulful eyes whenever we snack on the couch. As tough as it is to say no to those puppy eyes, we try our best to control his food intake as he does not exercise much. Despite a controlled diet, we notice that he still generates a considerable amount of poop. Hence, our nickname for him is “The Poop Factory”.

When going for walks, he is the happiest and most comfortable when both my wife and I are with him. Every weekend, we will make it a point to go on long-distance walks together. We tried to bring him to the beach but he does not seem to like swimming much.

Rover will probably need more time before becoming fully comfortable with the world, but we will be there with him every step of the way. We are grateful to SPCA for not losing faith in him and his chance of getting adopted. We hope that he will live a good life with us moving forward.

Snowy, A Loving Sibling

We finally decided to get our very first cat and we decided on adopting one from animal shelter in Novermber 2016. Snowy (previously know as Apollo) was 7 months when we first met him. He was placed in the largest cage at the front of where all the cats are. At that time, he was just taking a catnap but he caught our attention at once. We immediately started working on meshing our windows and adopted him two days later.

Snowy was described as a sociable cat on the SPCA website so it was no surprised that he settled in his new home very easily. He became the center of attention since the day he arrived as everyone doted on him and gave him all our love.

6 months later, we got another cat from The Cat Museum in hopes that he would enjoy another furry companion. Things did not go the way we expected and on the first two days his new Sisfur Pumpkin (previously known as Simone) came back, all he did was hissed at her until finally one day we caught them hugging and sleeping together and they soon grew closer.

Since then, he has been living the luxurious life he never thought he could have of being showered with love, treats and catnip everyday. The best part is having a sisfur lick his unreachable spots for him!
