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.

 

Playful Polly

In December 2014, we adopted Polly, a shy and quiet young puppy to our family. She started out relying on our older dogs to show her the ropes and I don't think Sandie was all too impressed with a needy puppy. Now, she has grown in an athletic and intelligent young dog.

She enjoys running around with other dogs as well as cuddling up on the couch. She is a loving young girl and I hope she lives a long life, so she can accompany me on my adventures of the world. My favourite moments were when she would crawl into my lap when she was small, but she's a bit too big for that now!

Jumping Jojo

I was interested in adopting a dog from the SPCA while I also volunteered as a dog walker. Jojo was brought out to the adoption area whilst we were filling out the adoption form to be on the waiting list for another dog but fate was with us, and hence, we got to adopt her instead. She has been with us for a year now. We decided to use her adoption date, 13 July as her birthday. 

Although stubborn at times, she is a very sweet and loving dog. My life revolves around her and I always look forward to going home, because she will be there at the door waiting for me. She is the best dog that anyone could ever have. She is not picky at all, and eats anything that you give her. She loves food.

She is also a very thoughtful dog. Whenever I practise the piano in my room, which could go on for many hours every day, she would wait very patiently in the living room. She would look out for pauses and walk in with a big smile to see if I am done. If she sees that I still want to continue practising, she would walk out quietly and continue waiting.

Though she is not the fastest learner, I managed to train her to walk with me most of the time. She can now also listen to commands, like 'sit', 'down', paw paw', 'high-five', 'heel', 'roll over', 'carry', 'wait', 'stay', 'let's go', 'walk', 'ok', 'stop', 'no', 'bath', and 'touch'. Teaching her all these tricks has been very fun indeed!

I am truly blessed to have her in my life!

Motherly Mrs. Chang

We adopted Mrs. Chang from SPCA in 2012. My husband and I were living in Singapore for a few years by then. We adopted Mrs. Chang, a tiny cat with scars in her head and open wounds due to animal abuse so she was quite a hostile little cat who was not friendly at first. 

When I became pregnant a few months later, I was afraid she would hurt my newborn baby. To our surprise though, she turned into a motherly feline figure for my daughter. Now they play and fight all day. They sleep together and Mrs. Chang is always following Maia around. She even stands in front of Maia when she is about to do something dangerous.

We relocated to Chile recently and brought Mrs. Chang in our 27 hour flight. It was a long and hard flight for all of us but we made it. Mrs. Chang seems to love the dry weather, the new apartment and all its visitors.   

Mrs. Chang is quite the attraction, being a Singa-purr-ean street cat in Latin America.  She is definitely the star of the house and a world traveller, having travelled in three continents.

Tenacious Tom

On 12 April 2014, sadness came upon the Rosli family when our dear cat, Tiger departed. My sister and I cried because Tiger was like the family's baby. He was the reason we all rushed home after school and work. It never occurred to us that the loss of the family pet would leave such a gaping hole in our hearts. 

Although my father doesn't show it, I am sure he felt very sad too. On 16 April 2014, he brought me to SPCA to immerse myself into the company of cats for awhile. Back then, my sister and I felt that we can never love another cat the same way we loved Tiger. I didn't think my parents would allow another cat in the household but my dad had a change of heart after seeing Tom.

Tom was one of the naughtiest kittens on display on that day. He was full of energy and kept nibbling my fingers when I tried to touch him. My dad was taken with Tom's charm, so the decision was made. We took Tom home on 18 April together with his carrier and toys.

Tom was a skinny little thing but his curiosity was overwhelming. He wasn't scared at all when he took his first car ride with us. In fact, he tried to look out the window! Life improved drastically since then. Tom was the medicine that healed all our hearts. He is a darling and has grown into a fat puffball. Besides healing our hearts, Tom was like an angel sent from heaven because he stayed with us through the loss of my grandfather in June last year.

Before my grandfather passed on, Tom kept him company everyday to the point of waiting outside the washroom doors when my grandfather took baths and I am very sure my grandfather loved Tom too because he often called out to Tom to talk to him. Tom is the life of the household.

Magnificent Marko

Marko Benji Chua was adopted in December 2010, when he was about 5 months old. He has transformed from a shy, wiry haired puppy to this beautiful and much loved scruffy dog that always gets strangers admiration. He is an intelligent and intuitive dog that has protected the littlest family member from the day of her arrival.
