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.

Sylvester, The Beloved Cat

Update in Feb 2018:

I adopted a cat from SPCA back in September 2007 – his name is Sylvester. When I first saw him, he was so friendly and seemed pleased to have visitors. I just had to adopt him! He fit right in the family and everyone who has met him over the years love him.

More than 10 years later, I am still living in Singapore and Sylvester is as wonderful as ever. I would like to thank SPCA for the work they do, and for providing me with the opportunity to adopt such a lovely cat.

1. He loves to jump into any open drawers.
2. He has a special box which he loves to hide in.
3. He is a natural when his picture is being taken.
4. He loves chilling on his perch, where he has a nice view to keep an eye on what is going on outside.

Update in Sep 2018:

Sylvester, myself, and my wife have moved from Singapore to the UK and we have all arrived safely in Glasgow.

When we first put him in his travel carrier, he seemed to be wondering about what was going on. We were sad to be parted from him, but he arrived safely and we were so happy to see him! He accustomed quickly to his new environment and has settled in very well. We are beyond grateful to have him in our lives.

A Soft Spot For Tofu

We knew we wanted to adopt a dog, so we always looked at SPCA’s website or shelter for updates. When we visited the shelter, we heard that there was a HDB-approved dog which was about to be available for adoption so we immediately indicated our interest. When we saw Tofu, it felt like Prince Charming had arrived.

We heard about how he was found with his tail chopped off, and were amazed that he could still trust and remain loyal to humans, such as his fosterer. The fosterer shared that he never once demonstrated any form of aggression even when his wound, ears and paws were being cleaned despite his ordeal. After a very quick family discussion, we made the decision to adopt him.

He is doing very well now! Put on a quite a bit of weight, enjoys hanging out at dog cafés, and going to East Coast Park for walks (he loves sitting in the middle of the road to greet everyone – we always joke that he is collecting toll in the form of praises and scratches). He is still a work-in-progress because he is a little too excitable and needs to learn how to socialise with other dogs. We love him so much and are so happy he is in our lives!

We have renamed him Lucky as it was truly lucky that he was found by kind members of the public and given medical care promptly by the SPCA.

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.
