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 communications@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.

Furballs Fur Life

Our first foray into adoption helped us fall in love with the idea of giving abandoned animals a forever home. 

We visited SPCA in Dec 2016 with the intention of providing our eldest daughter (who's crazy about animals) an exposure to SPCA's mission and the plight of abandoned animals. We went home that day, unintentionally, with an adorable 6-month-old Winter White Dwarf Hamster we named Snowball. Nicknamed Hammie, she became part of our family for the next two years until she eventually passed away on 24 Oct 2018. 

A couple of months of missing her much ensued and eventually, in Dec 2018, we brought our daughter, this time with younger sister in tow, back to SPCA to choose our next pet. We ended up falling in love with a 6-month-old brown Syrian Hamster we named Meatball. With each passing day, this shy furry new addition to our family still manages to put a smile on our face with each discovery we make of her.

- She loves burrowing away from us and we love trying to lure her out to meet us.

- She loves stuffing her entire mouth with food all at once and bringing them to her hidden cosy spot, so that she can minimise her trips out to the food bowl.

- She hangs on for dear life from the side of her food bowl on the second level of her cage as she eats, instead of going the "proper" way up the slope. Great core strength there!

Adopting a pet has made having a pet so much more meaningful as it's not only about a new addition to the family, but it's about providing an abandoned animal a new lease of life and a second chance to be loved.

Have A Pita My Heart

I would like to share about how Pita is doing now that he is home with us. Firstly, he is so cute! He has got a big appetite and has gained some weight in the short time he has been with us. I love searching for healthy cat food recipes and cooking for him so he gets his dose of real food and vitamins. Perhaps that explains the weight gain!

When he first came home, I had no idea he was already toilet trained. He knows how to pee in the litter tray and poop in the bathroom. Our family adores Pita, and he sure knows how to reciprocate the love by being his adorable self. He is also highly intelligent as he has figured out how to open our wardrobe doors all by himself.

An important thing to note for fellow cat owners – mesh your windows and gates for your cat’s safety! I worked closely with my contractor to ensure that this was done as soon as possible to ensure a safe environment for Pita, and in the spirit of neighbourliness.

Rocca Our World

We have had three pet dogs before, and they passed away of old age (~17 year old). We were hesitant about getting another dog as we went through so much heartache losing three of our previous dogs. Our last dog, Shiro, passed away in March 2018 and it was such a terrible loss for us.

In May 2018, my brother and l decided to visit SPCA. We mutually agreed that we were not going to adopt another dog yet, but when we saw Rocca’s face on the adoption gallery of SPCA’s website, we knew we had to “take a closer look”. We arrived at SPCA and a helpful staff member brought Rocca out to meet us. Even though the area was crowded with many people, Rocca ran straight up to my brother and started playing with him. It felt like there was already a bond! However, we had to stick to our agreement. It was tough leaving Rocca behind, and we spent the entire week thinking about him.

The following week, my best friend was in Singapore so we all decided to visit Rocca. The moment we saw him, he ran straight up to my brother again. We felt this warmth in our hearts as it seemed like he sincerely wanted us to bring him home. The bond was so real that we would be equally heartbroken to walk away from him again… So we decided to adopt him!

The first day home, we brought him to the vet for his medical checks and vaccinations. We then brought him to a groomer the next day. During this time, he was quite temperamental. However, we did not give up or even think of returning him to SPCA. We decided to start some basic obedience training for him. Nine months later, Rocca is now a wonderful and well-behaved dog. Contrary to his behaviour when he first came back, he no longer destroys things at home. He knows the house rules by heart, and brings so much joy and laughter to our household with his adorable looks and personality!

Hence, l would like to tell the people who are considering a pet: Please give these shelter babies a chance to live in a forever home filled with warmth and love! All they want is our love, and in turn, they will love us back even more. Take the time to bring them for walks and play, and see the joy and gratitude in their faces every single day.

All in all, we are so lucky to have Rocca in our lives. Thank you, SPCA! You gave us a dog so special, that is more than we could ask for. We will love him until the very end.

Merry Mochi & a Happy New Year

We met Mochi when she was about two years old back in November 2008 at SPCA. At that time, we were thinking of getting a dog. She was one of four huskies that was up for adoption in the shelter. She was the smallest and only female husky. We bonded as soon as we entered her enclosure - she offered us her favourite orange rugby ball toy, and we fell in love with her immediately. We brought her home a week later.

In early 2010, we had to relocate to Shenzhen, China for work. My wife, Patricia, who is also Mochi’s guardian angel, made arrangements for us to move overseas together. Since then, Mochi has been happily living with us in Shenzhen.

Fossil, Forever My #1

SPCA is an animal shelter and like all shelters, have limited resources. Unfortunately, this is the reality of life. The shelter staff members at SPCA were very helpful when I was looking to adopt a cat. They were able to recommend a cat with a personality that I, a first-time cat owner, was able to provide for to the best of my abilities. 

Fossil was six years old when he entered SPCA in 2016, and is now eight years old. It has been a wonderful two months having him at home with me, since I adopted him. I have sent a collection of photos over for the shelter staff members who have diligently cared for him, before he became my very own.

Older cats may not be popular but in fact, due to their calmer personality, they make great pets even for an inexperienced owner like myself. Fossil will always be my number 1 cat!
