[rehomed!] ADOPT: Kress - 6mo male kitten, sweet, friendly, rather talkative

Named Kress, male, about 6 months old with a very sweet temperament. He uses the litter box and is rather talkative. He was found, seemingly lost in the River Valley area and sat under the same bush overnight. Believe he used to be a home cat as he's really friendly and not streetsmart at all.

ADOPT: 2 abandoned cats, dumped out of carrier

I rescued five cats two nights ago as they were being abandoned in Woodlands area by three youngsters. They are two tiger striped cats (a male and female, about 6-10 months old) a black male Tom cat about a year old and two grey and white tabbies (female looks like she's about 6 -10 months old and the male looks like he's about a year old).

What happened:

On my way home, I sat to chat with some friends and these three kids - 2 boys and a girl - walked up and began dumping cats out of a cat carrier. The cats were obviously traumatised and confused as it was evident they are not familiar with being outdoors. Rather than run off and hide like wild cats would, they all huddled in a bunch and meowed loudly.

When I asked one of the boys what they were doing, I was rudely told to mind my own business. So when they left, I went to take a closer look and the cats ran up to me and would not leave my side. I called a friend who lived close by and asked her to bring me a couple of cat carriers and as soon as arrived, she could see they were not strays and really hungered for human contact and affection. However, she isn't able to take in any more cats and asked me to bring them home with me.

The problem is, I can't keep them. Not only do I live in HDB...I am also allergic to them. Whenever i am around them, I sneeze a lot and when they knead me with their paws, I tend to break out into massive rashes. I really do not want them to be sent to be euthanized because they are very gentle, loving cats. They love to be around people, love to be stroked and purr so loudly.

Could you please help me try to find them homes. I have uploaded their pictures to my FB page and made the album public so everyone can see them. The link is:

Anything you can do to help will certainly help. It's so important to find these cats a good home because they've already been so badly traumatised, I really don't want them to have to go through another bad experience with humans. They just don't deserve to be so badly treated.

ADOPT: Missy the alert, intelligent dog who loves to jog

Missy was a bit shy at first but was quick to warm up with affection, Once she settles, she is so lovely to have around the house!

Always eager to please, she will always greet you with a nice wag of tail and lots of affection. She is very friendly with all of us in the family including my young 4-yr old nephew and also gets along fine with my other 2 dogs well.

When we found her at Sembawang Park on 11 Feb 2010 before CNY, she came running up to us looking for a good pack to settle in with. After a brief interaction, she was ready to follow me and my dogs home.

She has some boxer blood (black mouth with white stripe down the front of her head) and looks like a cross between that and a hound or something from the sporting group of dogs as she is always alert and an active sniffer.

Her health is excellent (no external parasite problems), clean ears and skin. I also had her microchipped and dewormed. The vet suggests that she is less than a year old and I have made arrangements to have her sterilise on 30 March. She is eating well, and is lean, and getting very muscular as I do run and exercise her everyday.

She is intelligent and is learning basic commands very fast (sit, stay, come, down, and responding to her name "Missy"). On the leash, she is a real joy to walk with.

Since then she has settled right in front of my house and is always alert (in a non-aggressive way) when there are visitors or passerbys.

I think she will make a good house and family dog if you are looking to have one around the house.

There is no special needs. But she is a fairly big and energetic dog so will require the new owner to take her out for the usual walkies and runs, and have time to have her socialise with other dogs and humans. We walk her twice everyday ( she walks very well on the leash) and she is an excellent runner i.e. if you love to jog, this one is for you.

We brought her to SPCA but was informed that she could be put down within 24 hrs, so we decided to do this adoption programme ourselves.

If you are keen to adopt her, pls contact me at 98221251 or 92368616. There is no adoption fee whatsoever eventhough I have paid for her deworming and microchipping. All we want is for her to go to a nice home. I can't keep her as I have already 2 fast growing dogs at home.

Please let us know as well your experience with dogs as she is energetic and will need to be walked or run and plenty of affection everyday.

Update Fri 26 Mar
We found Missy lost and hungry on 11 Feb 2010 at Sembawang Park and have been fostering her since. Due to a change in family situation (one of the primary caregivers will be leaving Singapore in a month's time), we are urgently in need of help of any kind person who can adopt or foster Missy. There are already 2 fast growing dogs at home so Missy is adding to the pressure and we can't cope. The family decision is to surrender her to the SPCA in 2 weeks time if unadopted and we really do not want to resort to this as they may have to euthanise her if they deem her not suitable.

Missy is a very affectionate and intelligent dog and looks like a cross between a boxer and a hound. She can definitely run well and if you love to jog, she will make a lovely running companion.

I had her microchipped and dewormed already and she is a very healthy and fit dog.

Please contact us at 98221251 if you can help.

Update Wed 21 Apr
A potential adopter backed out at the last minute. Andy has decided to keep Missy and work out among the family on how to care for her.

update tue 6 jul
missy is up for adoption again.

[rehomed!] ADOPT: Junior - energetic, playful, loving male Lab x Local

Hello! My name is Junior. Have you heard about the story of Hachiko? Well, my story is one of my love and loyalty to my canine sister.

I was rescued from the perils of the dangerous roads. When my sister was mercilessly knocked down by a car and sent to AVA, I loitered by that very road, wishing to
see her again. However, I never heard from her since.

Knowing how dangerous it is for me, I was brought to Gentle Paws & Friends where I found shelter and love.

I have since recovered from the tragic loss of my sister and regain my playful and friendly nature. I am bustling with energy and love to play.

I have a sad past and I really hope someone will give me a home. Fairy tails (tales) always have a happy ever after ending. Will you be the lead in my future happy tale of everlasting love and loyalty?

more details in link below.
