Where To Adopt Pets In Singapore?

Dogs, Cats and More!

Adopt Pets in Singapore

Having a pet in your life is one of the most rewarding things a family can do. The unconditional love, snuggles on the couch,  strolls in the park, and that warm welcome you receive when you come home after a long day. But which pet is the right one for you? Dogs? Cats? Rabbits or Fish? Just head down to pet shops in your neighborhood malls or inquire at the animal charitable organizations around town. Check out our Little Steps’ guide on where to get dogs, cats, bunnies, and more in Singapore!

 

  • Where-To-Buy-Dogs-In-Singapore

    They say a house is not a home until you have a dog and we're inclined to agree. A dog's love is like no other. Loyal and caring they will be by your side for eternity. There are many dogs in Singapore that need a good home, from puppies to younger dogs and more senior ones that have been abandoned. There are lots of charities and groups that adopt dogs. So, if you're looking for a four-legged friend, take a trip to one of their charity days and find the right pooch for your home.

  • Where-To-Buy-Cats-In-Singapore

    Compared to dogs, cats are a little easier to look after. They don't need walking and are a lot less maintenance. If you have a small apartment but want a furry friend, a cat can be a good option. There are some lovely cat charities and groups in Singapore that will help you to find your feline friend. With kittens, young cats and older moggies that need a forever home, there's one that will suit your family to a tea.

  • Pet-Relocation-In-Singapore

    Relocating your pet can be costly, timely and quite traumatic. They need to be fit and well and have extensive tests depending on which country you are relocating to. It can take anything from one month to six months too, so start to prepare as early as you can. There are several companies that can help to take the stress out of it all.

  • Rabbits or hamsters are easy to look after. A good clean of the cage once a week and daily feeding and they're ready to go. The SPCA is a great place to find a furry friend. They have a good selection of bunnies ready to hop their way into you and your little one's lives. Get ready to find your very own Peter Rabbit!

  • Birds are a popular choice of pet. From cockatiels to parakeets and parrots, they are a colorful addition to any home. Keep them in a large cage so they can fly around, they're perfect if you have a house. Keep them in the garden and listen to them chirping away with their fellow birds in the neighborhood. Check out local Chinese pet shops too for their selections.

  • If you've never had a pet before, owning fish is a great place to start. Get a good-sized tank, some pebbles and maybe a bridge or two, it's a good way for kids to learn the responsibility of feeding and cleaning out the tank. You can get fish from most local pet shops. They come in all shapes, colors, and sizes. Finding Nemo here we come!

  • Some kids like lizards and snakes as pets! Most local pet shops will have frogs, turtles, lizards, and tarantulas, oh my. These clearly aren't the furry sorts of pets many kids like, but they can be quite cool to watch. Check out your local pet shop or the SPCA to see what they have in store for you.

  • If you're out all day working 9-5, it's important you get a dog walker so your furry friend can stretch their legs and have a much-needed bathroom break. It's vital they have a couple of good walks a day and get plenty of fresh air. There are lots of agencies and one-off dog walkers that will happily take your pooch for a stroll. Here are our favorites.

  • Often, rescue animals need a temporary home and fostering is one way you can help. In many cases, pets will have an injury and need someone at home who can help to take care of them. Sometimes they have lost a parent and need feeding like a mama would do. Fostering is a rewarding way of looking after an animal in need without taking on all the responsibility 24/7.
