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.

 

Smoochy Smooch

Smoochy was incredibly timid when we first brought her home and it took her more than a week to feel comfortable with her new surroundings. Smoochy is very much a part of our family. She is so sweet and charming that she even managed to turn our domestic helper, who was initially hesitant about cats into a cat lover. Smoochy loves to play badminton with us and will sometimes play with the shuttlecock all by herself too. Smoochy even has her own Instagram account: smoochyeo.

When I work from home, she keeps me company by sitting on top of my printer or on my work desk. Although she will occasionally disappear onto cupboard tops and underneath beds, she will reappear quite innocently once she is called.  When she does this, she makes us all melt. She’s got such a sweet innocent face. Thank you SPCA for rescuing Smoochy! If you didn't rescue her, we wouldn't have been able to adopt her as part of our family.

Love Trapper

My family and I wanted to let you know Trapper the cat is doing great. We adopted him from the SPCA a couple of weeks ago and he now has four people who he bosses around for feeds and treats. He even refuses to lie on the floor preferring only cushions, sofas and beds! Although it’s only been a short time, we already can't imagine not having him around.

I'd like to say a personal thanks to Jen who stayed with me for over an hour while I got to know the cats in the shelter. She'll be happy to know Trapper's family adores him. We hope he likes living with us because we sure love living with him. He is getting loads of cuddles and love every day and will continue to receive it from us for the rest of his life. Thank you S.P.C.A

Noble Nicky

My husband and I got Nicky when she was only three months old back in February 2012 at SPCA. At that time, her kennel was labelled “pending” so we thought she had already been adopted. When we clarified again with a staff member, we were pleasantly surprised that the “pending” was meant for her sibling. I guess we were fated to adopt Nicky.

As you can see, she has grown up to be a fine lady and a big girl now. She loves to eat and will automatically sit down whenever she sniffs a yummy treat. She is always very happy to see us and she is still greeting us with the same enthusiasm and happiness that she has had for the past two years. She loves going to parks and beaches to sniff the surroundings and to swim. She has brought us a lot of joy and laughter since then, completing our lives in many ways. 

Adopting a dog is a lifetime commitment but the joy and companionship that they bring has no limits. They don’t want anything more than your love.

Totally Tabby (Part 2)

On the 26 May 2014, Tabby celebrated her 13th birthday. I adopted Tabby from the SPCA a little over ten years ago on 27 Apr 2004.  Her name then was ‘Baby’. Tabby had been recently diagnosed with the early stages of diabetes. One day, she started showing signs of sickness so I brought her to the vet only to find that she had high glucose levels in her blood. After more tests and examinations, she was given a prescription of tablets from a human pharmacy. Tabby needed to take half a tablet in the morning and half a tablet in the evening mixed with food but this clever girl took the tablet directly from her plate when she was given her dry food for the evening.

The tablet medication however did not result in any signs of improvement so she switched to an insulin injection just like human diabetic patients get (but with a lower dosage). I could see Tabby’s condition improving after a few sessions.  I probably have to send her back to the vet to check her blood glucose level every now and then.

Honestly, once you adopt a pet,  it is a lifelong commitment. Tabby gave me her wonderful company all these years and I cannot just let her health deteriorate if there is treatment available. I understand that the treatment is costly but seeing her health deteriorating is painful to see. The cost is not an issue!  Having said that, I have no idea how many more years Tabby has left.  I just want to do my very best for her so that the rest of her days are the happiest.

Nelly

We adopted Nelly in early March 2014. Nelly spent the first two-three weeks huddled in the bedroom cupboard amongst my pashminas. She was very timid and frightened of noises and did not like being picked up. However, overtime, this lovely two-year-old tabby started to relax, explore the house and got to know her new family. Fast forward to three months later, and Nelly is not only a bit heavier but she is the center of the household. She is chatty and playful and adores playing ball with our two sons, aged six and seven. She loves to sit and watch them play TV games and she’s always keen for company and snuggles. Nelly is a truly a loving and affectionate family member! We all adore our Nelly!
