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.

 

Scooby-Doobeedoo!

Dear SPCA,
I would just like to thank you for letting us adopt Scooby last june 2010. He has just become such a joy in our family, it's beyond words. When we first saw Scooby's picture on your adoption gallery website, he was literally love at first sight.

We were warned that he would be a difficult dog to handle because of his energy levels. Being a first time dog owner, i was a bit weary. But surprisingly, scooby has been so easy to be with. We bring him almost everywhere we go, including sailing! My daily morning runs are never the same, he runs with me for my whole 10km route without complaining!!

My parents love scooby so much they keep attempting to "kidnap" him from us, almost like he's our son.

We also have a cat, Uss. They do not get along at all, but it all adds to the never ending entertainment at home. Never a dull moment! Of course, we try not to show favouritism.

Our lives have changed with Scooby. We feel so lucky to have him. Thank you SPCA!

Best,
Jennifer and Guz Wilkinson

   
 
   

Hiyo Milo

This is 'Max', although my new owners decided I was more of a 'Milo' after seeing my personality. I seem to like it - my ears perk up whenever they say my name. It was certainly better than 'Chairman Meow'.

I am adapting well to my new home, and pretty much have the run of the place. Although I'm still a little thin, I'm eating well and enjoy both wet and dry food. Both are a good idea for my digestion.

I never need to use my claws, and I love to be around everyone that lives here and comes to visit. I feel so calm and happy in my new home, and I can totally relax now. I like to play with my owners and my toys - I've become quite the athelete. I'm a real jumper, in fact.

I've attached a couple of pictures for you to see. One is showing my new chair that I've commandeered. Although I share it, it's pretty much mine now. The other is when I got into the act with one of my owner's Halloween shenanigans. I was disappointed I couldn't find any candy.

My owners are easy to train and I've got them wrapped around my little paw. We're all so very happy to have each other.

Thank you all for taking such good care of me when I was needing help. With your love and support, I was able to survive and find a new home!

Love, Milo
Thank you all again - we are so happy! Frank, Jennise and Sophia Marton

   
 
   

Pretty and Chelsea

We lost "Pretty" suddenly. She vomited and had diarrhoea at night. We rushed her to a veterinary at 2am but at about 8am the next morning Pretty had left us for good.

It was difficult to cope without her presence. No words could console or fill the vacuum within our home.

Pretty literally walked herself into our lives and was a source of joy to all of us at home.

I saw a poster that resembled Pretty at the SPCA. Thanks to the kind understanding and empathy extended to me by the staff, I managed to bring home one of the posters. This poster continues to take pride of place in our home.

Several weeks later, I received an unexpected call from SPCA. They asked if I was keen to adopt a young pup that was up for adoption at the SPCA.

Still carrying the pain of losing Pretty, we found ourselves unable to rush into saying yes. We however, decided to view the potential pup at least.

Honestly, what we saw of the Shih Tzu pup was that she looked like a small mop, almost a ball of fur.

There was something about her, perhaps her big eyes or her need for care and love captured our hearts immediately.

Perhaps Pretty's unconditional love and care for us made us want another to replace her in our home.

We took the pup home and named her "Chelsea".

Today, Chelsea is a happy, lively and lovable 10-year-old furry member of our family. She is very much a big part of our lives just like Pretty was. Chelsea's big eyes, demeanour and zest for life bring much joy to everyone at home.

Almost every night, Chelsea repeats her sprints after dinner as the rest of the family watches the television. This is likely a daily episode of a live programme at home.

Whilst we still continue to carry the fond memories of Pretty, we are most grateful to SPCA for introducing Chelsea into our lives.

Thank you SPCA for allowing us to adopt this special bundle of joy.

Of course, we cannot help but say "Thank you, Chelsea for your ability to show us the way to optimism, love, care, and the bundle of joy you are to us and for adopting us as your family."

There can never be any doubt that animals do bring that special joy, love and take a very special place in our home and hearts.

So, please adopt rather than buy!

Welcome Peppermint!

Ever since our pet hamster died of old age, it was our plan to adopt another hamster from SPCA.

When my eldest son and I arrived at the SPCA shelter, we saw quite a lot to choose from, more than 10! After some indecision I spotted a small and young female Winter White. The SPCA staff were really friendly and knowledgeable about the animals in the shelter and helped us with the paperwork.

Her name was listed as "Birdie" which I thought was an odd name for a hamster! So we brought her home and discussed names. "Pepper" was one of them and when my second son said Peppermint, nothing else sounded as right.

So far, she's quite cautious and is still getting used to us. But she seems quite happy in her Habitrail Ovo home and has been exploring it, eating food, running in the wheel etc.

So Peppermint she is! I've already started pampering her with some hamster herb/grass from the pet shop (in addition to her grains) and a salt lick cube. We hope she'll have a long and happy life with us and our thanks to SPCA!

Say Hi! To Sunny Jinx

Hey everybody!

My family adopted Peanut (now re-named to Jinx :D ) back in March 2010. Its a day i will never forget!

Jinx was abandoned on the road-side along with her four other siblings just a month prior to her adoption. The minute I saw her I knew she was going to be mine. We had looked all over Singapore at the different dog kennels but the cute little face of baby Jinx with her joyous, wagging tail kept drifting back into my memory...

In the morning of March 6th me, my mom and my dad packed our car with some doggie treats and a couple of towels (in case of an accident!) and set off to the SPCA- It was time to sign the papers.

Jinx was ecstatic to see me again so soon and she jumped all around our legs as if to say "Ooooh, thank you thank you THANK you for picking me!" Soon enough we had another addition to the family :)

As the months flew by Jinx grew, in size and in personality as well! She's a naughty little girl, knowing exactly how and when she will be able to get some cuddles and kisses from us. She can be brilliant and obeys all commands - when bribed with a treat! My family and I try to train her a little every day so that she never forget her manners!

Now we live in sunny Phuket where we have a nice big garden for Jinx to run around in. She LOVES it! If it was up to her she would probably sunbathe all day. She's more of a people person but loves playing around with other friendly dogs! She's a big eater and will jealously sniff anything we're munching on. Sometimes I think she would much rather eat pizzas and hamburgers than her boring old dog food! But we treat her once in a while to some apple or a bowl of milk when she looks at us with those big puppy dog eyes that are so irresistible!

There's never a minute of boredom when you're around Jinx! She's always on the move! Either she wants to prance around a soccer ball or run around and around the house until we're both so dizzy we fall to the grass laughing! In the evening times she likes to curl up in a ball right next to us, she's too big to fit in my lap now!

Jinx has brought my family so much love and happy memories over the last year, now we can't even imagine life without her!

Rati, Vikram and Renu
