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 communications@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.

Rocca Our World

We have had three pet dogs before, and they passed away of old age (~17 year old). We were hesitant about getting another dog as we went through so much heartache losing three of our previous dogs. Our last dog, Shiro, passed away in March 2018 and it was such a terrible loss for us.

In May 2018, my brother and l decided to visit SPCA. We mutually agreed that we were not going to adopt another dog yet, but when we saw Rocca’s face on the adoption gallery of SPCA’s website, we knew we had to “take a closer look”. We arrived at SPCA and a helpful staff member brought Rocca out to meet us. Even though the area was crowded with many people, Rocca ran straight up to my brother and started playing with him. It felt like there was already a bond! However, we had to stick to our agreement. It was tough leaving Rocca behind, and we spent the entire week thinking about him.

The following week, my best friend was in Singapore so we all decided to visit Rocca. The moment we saw him, he ran straight up to my brother again. We felt this warmth in our hearts as it seemed like he sincerely wanted us to bring him home. The bond was so real that we would be equally heartbroken to walk away from him again… So we decided to adopt him!

The first day home, we brought him to the vet for his medical checks and vaccinations. We then brought him to a groomer the next day. During this time, he was quite temperamental. However, we did not give up or even think of returning him to SPCA. We decided to start some basic obedience training for him. Nine months later, Rocca is now a wonderful and well-behaved dog. Contrary to his behaviour when he first came back, he no longer destroys things at home. He knows the house rules by heart, and brings so much joy and laughter to our household with his adorable looks and personality!

Hence, l would like to tell the people who are considering a pet: Please give these shelter babies a chance to live in a forever home filled with warmth and love! All they want is our love, and in turn, they will love us back even more. Take the time to bring them for walks and play, and see the joy and gratitude in their faces every single day.

All in all, we are so lucky to have Rocca in our lives. Thank you, SPCA! You gave us a dog so special, that is more than we could ask for. We will love him until the very end.

Merry Mochi & a Happy New Year

We met Mochi when she was about two years old back in November 2008 at SPCA. At that time, we were thinking of getting a dog. She was one of four huskies that was up for adoption in the shelter. She was the smallest and only female husky. We bonded as soon as we entered her enclosure - she offered us her favourite orange rugby ball toy, and we fell in love with her immediately. We brought her home a week later.

In early 2010, we had to relocate to Shenzhen, China for work. My wife, Patricia, who is also Mochi’s guardian angel, made arrangements for us to move overseas together. Since then, Mochi has been happily living with us in Shenzhen.

Fossil, Forever My #1

SPCA is an animal shelter and like all shelters, have limited resources. Unfortunately, this is the reality of life. The shelter staff members at SPCA were very helpful when I was looking to adopt a cat. They were able to recommend a cat with a personality that I, a first-time cat owner, was able to provide for to the best of my abilities. 

Fossil was six years old when he entered SPCA in 2016, and is now eight years old. It has been a wonderful two months having him at home with me, since I adopted him. I have sent a collection of photos over for the shelter staff members who have diligently cared for him, before he became my very own.

Older cats may not be popular but in fact, due to their calmer personality, they make great pets even for an inexperienced owner like myself. Fossil will always be my number 1 cat!

Sylvester, The Beloved Cat

Update in Feb 2018:

I adopted a cat from SPCA back in September 2007 – his name is Sylvester. When I first saw him, he was so friendly and seemed pleased to have visitors. I just had to adopt him! He fit right in the family and everyone who has met him over the years love him.

More than 10 years later, I am still living in Singapore and Sylvester is as wonderful as ever. I would like to thank SPCA for the work they do, and for providing me with the opportunity to adopt such a lovely cat.

1. He loves to jump into any open drawers.
2. He has a special box which he loves to hide in.
3. He is a natural when his picture is being taken.
4. He loves chilling on his perch, where he has a nice view to keep an eye on what is going on outside.

Update in Sep 2018:

Sylvester, myself, and my wife have moved from Singapore to the UK and we have all arrived safely in Glasgow.

When we first put him in his travel carrier, he seemed to be wondering about what was going on. We were sad to be parted from him, but he arrived safely and we were so happy to see him! He accustomed quickly to his new environment and has settled in very well. We are beyond grateful to have him in our lives.

A Soft Spot For Tofu

We knew we wanted to adopt a dog, so we always looked at SPCA’s website or shelter for updates. When we visited the shelter, we heard that there was a HDB-approved dog which was about to be available for adoption so we immediately indicated our interest. When we saw Tofu, it felt like Prince Charming had arrived.

We heard about how he was found with his tail chopped off, and were amazed that he could still trust and remain loyal to humans, such as his fosterer. The fosterer shared that he never once demonstrated any form of aggression even when his wound, ears and paws were being cleaned despite his ordeal. After a very quick family discussion, we made the decision to adopt him.

He is doing very well now! Put on a quite a bit of weight, enjoys hanging out at dog cafés, and going to East Coast Park for walks (he loves sitting in the middle of the road to greet everyone – we always joke that he is collecting toll in the form of praises and scratches). He is still a work-in-progress because he is a little too excitable and needs to learn how to socialise with other dogs. We love him so much and are so happy he is in our lives!

We have renamed him Lucky as it was truly lucky that he was found by kind members of the public and given medical care promptly by the SPCA.
