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.

 

Elegant Elly

Elly was adopted in August 2013. As I did not want to support one of those breeding mills I had heard so many sad stories about, I made the decision to adopt a dog from a shelter. I had never had a pet before but I wanted to take a leap of faith for my family and I who had just moved here from Germany.

When we visited the SPCA, we decided on Delia, a local-mixed-breed dog of about three-years-old, who grew up in the shelter. The staff at the SPCA were very helpful and sensitive with our search for our perfect companion so  when we chose Delia, they were also very honest about her.  They assured us that she is a real sweetheart, once you have earned her trust.  When we finally took Delia home, we renamed her Elly to signify a new chapter in her life. The first four days were very hard, she hid under the bed and would not come out at all, not for food and not even for a pee. So one step at a time, with a lot of patience, we managed to give her courage. It took us four weeks to just get beyond the condo barrier and after four months, we went to dog training for resocialising. Today, Elly is like family, the best friend you possibly can have. She still is not an outgoing dog, but it seems she does appreciate every single bit of attention that we give to her.

Mars, the Monkey Boy

My husband and I adopted Tom from the SPCA in June 2012. We have since renamed him Mars with the nickname, Monkey Boy because he is so energetic! We were appalled and saddened by Mars' terrible and skinny state when we first adopted him. However, we are glad that after a few months of taking care of Mars, he managed to put on a significant amount of weight. His fur also grew silky and beautiful. Big thanks to our groomers! Now two years on, Mars has grown to be a protective dog and he takes it upon himself to be the guard dog at home. He is so well-loved by everyone!

Noble Non Chan

I adopted Hoel the dog from SPCA last October and we have renamed him Non Chan. Non Chan is adapting well to us. Thanks to Dr Kang Nee's support, he has become a very confident and obedient dog. Since nobody knows his actual date of birth, we decided that his birthday should fall on 9 August 2012. We therefore celebrated his 2nd birthday on the 9 August 2014 with a wonderfully homemade dog cake.

Ling-girl And Jing-girl

Ling-girl and Jing-girl were both adopted from the SPCA on the Easter Sunday of 2014. While we were at the shelter, a grey bunny (Ling-girl) caught my eye and a white bunny(Jing-girl) caught my husband's. When he bent over to pick her up (Jing-girl), she peed on him, so we knew that she was the one for us. In the end, we adopted both of them.

It has taken a while for us to get to know these bunnies but we can happily say that both girls are very well mannered and very easy to litter-train. When it comes to food these girls are very pampered and they can even pose for photos. They are just that vain. 

Ling-girl is very independent. She loves to move all her rugs and pile them into the middle of her large play-pen in our kitchen. Jing-girl loves to be pampered and is very attached to my hubby. It is only he who is able to carry her. These girls both add a lot of fun to our lives and we are truly blessed having adopted them.

Totally Tabby (Part 3)

The saga of Tabby continues as she now goes through remission. Earlier in this story, Tabby was discovered to have contracted the early stages of diabetes. Although tablet medication did not suffice, I did not lose hope and continued to press on. I then started giving her insulin injections in the hope that this would be a solution and it was. Now, two months later, Tabby has healed and is no longer in need of insulin injections according to her vet. Tabby’s diet has been changed as well and her urine is being closely monitored. If she is diabetes free for three months, will she hopefully then be fully discharged of her illness.

I was full of uncertainty during this perilous time and no one knew whether she would recover. Only when she finally did, did the sigh of relief come. In spite of what has happened, one must remember that a pet is for life through thick and thin and I have done just that. I have no regrets taking her through this journey and want to thank Dr Phua Siew Sian of Vet Practice Pte Ltd for being so patient and putting Tabby on such a fast path to her recovery.
