Please note the following:

  • As the whole process of adoption takes about an hour to complete, we regret that we are not able to process any adoption within less than 30 minutes to the stated closing time. On weekends and public holidays, interested adopters have to express their interest to our staff in person at least one hour before closing to guarantee that their adoption can be processed.
  • No animal can be reserved over the telephone or via email.
  • The SPCA reserves the right not to approve an adoption.
  • The SPCA may need to check the premises of the potential adopter before giving approval.
  • As a pet is a lifetime commitment with considerable responsibilities involved, the SPCA may request family members and/or domestic helpers to come and view/interact/approve the animal to be adopted.
  • Adoption of an SPCA animal cannot be processed for anyone who is below the age of 18.
  • All potential adopters must produce their NRIC cards for local and permanent residents or the passport or FIN card for foreigners.
  • To process dog adoptions, foreigners, as well as locals whose address on their identity card is different from the address where the dog will be kept, will need to bring one of the following supporting documents for licensing purposes:

- A copy of the tenancy agreement letter or
- A copy of the latest Power Supply bill

  • If you have an existing dog(s) at home, the adoption will only be approved following an interaction session with the existing pet(s) at the SPCA. 

    Adopters of cats from the SPCA who stay in high rise ( second storey upwards) need to have  wire mesh etc. in place.

  • No family with children under 13 years of age will be able to adopt a large breed category "B" dog (above the age of 6 months) or their crosses (e.g. Neapolitan Mastiff, Bull Mastiff, Bull Terrier, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Great Danes etc), even if the potential adopters have experience in keeping any of these breeds. As the animal's history is not known, the SPCA cannot take the risk of exposing children to the uncertain consequences if they were to unknowingly provoke these animals.
