Give these animals a second chance at life
With some Instagram handles dedicated solely to dogs, cats and even the exotic animals, it is only natural for one's yearning of having a furry family member be increased by tenfold. And if you ever decid to make this big step of welcoming a pet into your life, take the time to consider that purchasing one isn't your only option. Why not adopt? For starters, look to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Singapore, where it takes in about 200 strays and abandoned every month. If there's no luck there, here are 10 other animal welfare organisations filled with sweet and adorable furry critters, all needing of a forever home.

Not all strays were abused and abandoned, some animals you see on the streets may have unknowingly left their homes and were never lucky enough to be reunited with their owners. Dedicated to helping abandoned animals find a home and lost pets reunite with their owners, LostPaws wants to strengthen the fragmented efforts of animal welfare groups in Singapore by bringing together multiple groups, involving local businesses to create a one-stop pets portal. Adopting from LostPaws is relatively simple with the site working almost like a “Carousell” for pets available for adoption. Current pet owners who are no longer able to care for their pets can put up an ‘ad’ of their pets inclusive of short descriptions and vital information like whether the animal is neutered and vaccinated. The owner’s contact details are available too so if you can contact them if you come across a dog or cat you truly like!
