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. You may wish to read Mr Lu's blog here.

 

Squishy the Sprinter

I adopted Flora, a local black rabbit in April 2015. The moment I saw her in her cage, I fell in love with her. She was quietly chewing on hay and seemed unfazed about people trying to pet her. I remember how she hopped onto my lap for comfort in the car ride back to my home. Ever since that day I brought her home, she has been a bundle of joy with her silly antics, especially when she does sudden sprints around the house and when she gets up on her hind legs whenever she sees food! She loves head rubs and attention from everybody in my family and even from visitors! Flora (we've named her Squishy now) has been a lovely addition to our family along with our other dwarf rabbit.

A Lucky Family

We adopted our cat Lucky on 1 July 2013. It was our first adoption with SPCA and it was one of the best decisions we have made. Lucky has brought nothing but joy to our family, a companionship and a listening ear. Lucky has been with us for more than 4 years now, enjoying his warm bed with us every night. I still remember the first time I brought him home, he was scared of us as it was a new environment for him, but now he is enjoying every moment he spends with us, always wanting us to rub his big tummy. Thank you, SPCA, for letting our family adopt Lucky and for letting him bring joy and happiness into our lives.

Love at First Sight

"To a poor and lonely stray, I’d give my happy home; my bowl and cozy bed, soft pillow and all my toys; the lap, which I loved so much; the hand that stroked my fur; and the sweet voice that spoke my name. I’d will to the sad, scared shelter dog the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds. So, when I die, please do not say, 'I will never have a pet again, for the loss and the pain is more than I can stand'. Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope, and give my place to him. This is the only thing I can give... The love I left behind." - A Dog's Last Will and Testament, author unknown

When our English springer spaniel Flash died of old age in June 2015, we could think of no better way to honour his memory than to welcome another dog into our lives. A few months later, we started looking at SPCA's adoption gallery daily. One Wednesday afternoon, we came across a sombre little face, a shih tzu mix named Tango said to be seven and a half who was found tied behind a shophouse. Somehow, we knew he would be The One. We headed down first thing on Friday (the adoption centre, located at Mount Vernon then, was closed on Thursdays), armed with a blanket. It was Oct 16 - it's been 365 days since and we just celebrated our first Gotcha Day with him. 

Tango is playful, cheeky, stubborn, mostly sweet, extremely smart and makes us laugh all the time. Overall, he's a very good boy. He follows us around the house like a personal stalker but is very independent when left alone at home. He has a protective streak and will bark at strangers, but his bushy tail will be wagging furiously at the same time. If you dare to take a chance, he will reward you with the greatest affection because all this furry baby wants is to be loved.

Thank you for rescuing him, SPCA, so he could rescue us!

Frosty - A Perfect Fit for the Chew Family

We adopted Frosty (previously known as Rick), our lop ear rabbit, from SPCA just before Christmas of 2015. Initially he was jittery like most prey animals and would nip us if we tried to carry him. Over time he had settled down, relaxed and gotten used to our noisy family! Being litter trained, he roams free in our living room and is often lounging around next to the window, enjoying his spot in the sun. He doesn't mind even if we smother him with kisses. He entertains us at dinner time by darting around the house and doing the occasional binkie. Recently, we managed to train him to run to us for treats! My daughter is especially fond of him - she brushes him and talks to him daily, even counselling him after he had gotten into mischief (like chewing the wires). Our lives are enriched, because of this little creature we welcomed into our home and we hope that his is too!

A Bond Beyond Words

Eight years ago in 2008, my mom adopted "Debu", who we renamed "Marcus"... He was then a 4-year-old silky terrier/mini schnauzer mix. After being abandoned by his original owner, he ended up at the SPCA, where he was adopted but then returned after a few weeks for being too barky.

Indeed, Marcus had terrible separation anxiety when we brought him home; if any of us were to leave his sight, he would whine and bark incessantly. However, a few months after my mom took him in, she sold off her apartment to rent a room instead, and because the landlord did not permit pets, Marcus came to permanently live with me and my family.

I felt very bad for Marcus, given his already existing insecurity. During the initial months, I talked and spent time frequently with him, to reassure him. Our bond grew deeper, and he soon learned to be away from my side when I was out working. He was also extremely close and friendly with my kids, but he and I were to forever retain our "connection"... Eventually he grew more secure and settled, displaying a cheeky, loyal, loving, spunky personality.

Marcus crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge nearly 2 weeks ago. I was devastated and cried daily the first week. I still miss him so very much and dearly... he really was my bestie. He passed peacefully after he suffered a seizure and was taken ill overnight. I am glad he went fast with no prolonged suffering -- hours before he passed, he was calm and quiet, with not a single whine. I had wanted to bring him to the vet, but Marcus "communicated" to me that he was ready to go, and I wanted him to die at home, surrounded by family, instead of being put down in the cold sterile environment of a veterinary hospital. This was the last thing I could do for my friend. He was 12 years old approximately.

Run free Marcus! We love you.
