SPCA accepts walk-ins for adoption services again from 1 March

by Natalie Lim

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Singapore is accepting walk-ins again for their adoption services, and this means more hope for our homeless furkids.

The circuit-breaker measures imposed on us in 2020 were harsh. Besides having to adapt to home confinement, people struggled with limited social interaction as well.

But perhaps, these were trivial problems. As compared to our buddies at the shelter, we at least had a family to talk to, or friends we could mingle with online.

In April 2020, SPCA announced that critical and essential services would continue to run. However, all adoption services were to be halted until further notice. 

Although adoption services resumed after three months, it ran on an appointment-only basis, which greatly lowered the opportunity for our furry friends to be adopted.

Now, prospective adopters no longer need an appointment to head down.

Walk-ins are allowed on weekdays from 11am to 3pm, except for Thursdays, but weekend visits are still subjected to an appointment basis.

SPCA will release appointment slots 7 days in advance, and the slots can be reserved here

Due to the overwhelming response, upcoming weekend slots have been fully booked.

The news may have got you excited, but do remember that getting a pet should not be an impulsive decision. 

Pets available for adoption can be found on SPCA’s website gallery, but if you’re unable to find a suitable companion at the time of viewing, don’t be disheartened—the site is updated frequently, and you can follow SPCA on Instagram and Facebook for adoption spotlights.

Getting a pet is a family decision, so on your appointment day, all members of your household (4 pax max), and the main caregiver should be present. If you are ready to adopt, you may also bring along a carrier / leash / harness.

For the public’s safety, safety measures will still be taken via TraceTogether-only SafeEntry and temperature taking. There will also be a queue system for safe distancing.
