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.

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!

Tomi, The Cheeky Boy

We visited SPCA on Children's Day 2017 to search for a suitable cat as we have 2 young kids in our household. Upon looking around, we spotted Tomi and it was love at first sight. 

He was so approachable and simply loved the presence of humans. He was very cheeky as he tried to play with the other cats while interacting with us. After catproofing our home, we took him home and he settled into our house in no time, but he caught a bad bout of cat flu. After a long battle with the flu, his immune system is much stronger now and he is now the king of our household. We love him to bits

Nero, A Black Charmer

As an expat, I knew that I will have to accept the potential cost of moving a cat with us if I ever were to leave Singapore, but we decided to take a look at what cats were available in the SPCA in August 2016. I let my kids and husband, who'd never had a cat, select a kitten. They decided on Nero, a quiet black Tom cat who wasn't pawing or grabbing fingers. When we first took him home, he was so timid and scared! He hid under our beds and furniture, and we had to coax him out for three days. He soon warmed up to us, adapting to the noisy kids who carried him like a baby, even till now!

Nero's grown into a handsome but talkative boy who prowls around the house, asking for food, pats and snacks. He even reprimands us for not going to bed! Over the cooler period in January, we were amazed that he sat on my husband's lap and snuggled up to him! He is like a child of our own that we love dearly!

Coco, Beauty With Brains

7 months ago we adopted Coco (previously known as Ellie). I would say that we are very lucky to have Coco, she is giving us so much joy. I remember when Coco first came to our family she was so shy but now she is so playful and so sweet.

We sent Coco to obedience class every week for 2.5 months, she performed very well in the class and she passed her test with the highest score in the class! We are so proud of her! Thank you SPCA for letting us adopt Coco and bring our family so much joy and happiness.
