Things I Wish I Knew Before Adopting a Dog
dailydoseoftalia・September 22, 2020
When my husband and I were moving into our new home, we both knew that our home will not be complete without a dog; He had grown up with one while I have always wanted one.

Our Adopted Cats Have Separation Anxiety..No More
sonnoirxdaddyblanc・September 18, 2020
We hear the phrase all too often; ‘Adopt, don’t shop.’ Out of all the posts for adoption I encountered, one of them deeply caught my attention. An owner looking in desperation to re-home her cats or they will be handed over to the shelters. Behind that cute fluffy faces and mighty paws, a touching story began to unfold as we got to know the cats better.

There were not much time to fully prepare for their arrivals but hey, I remembered how excited and nervous we were!

Pawsanova / Kobe.sg・September 12, 2020

mayothedogo・September 07, 2020
Around November 2019, we felt ready for a new addition to our family. Being first-time owners, we had a lengthy discussion and started doing our homework on costs, training and responsibilities, pros/cons of adopting vs buying and etc. It was then we started scrolling through the websites of various shelters and that’s where we came across Mayo’s profile on Save our Street Dogs (SOSD). To be completely honest, we were still in the initial phases of looking around.. And so we decided to join SOSD’s bi-monthly shelter tour to learn more about the street dogs and the work they do.
