Pet Care Tips: How to help a cat adjust to a new home

You're keen to adopt a cat but have heard of horror stories where the newly adopted cat escapes from the house and never make his way back. Or, the cat perpetually hides in a corner and never comes out after a looong time. How can you help your cat adjust to your home? This video may be helpful. Cat Welfare Society and SPCA Singapore will have cats up for adoption at our The Pawfect Match adoption drive at Pet Expo. Do come down and check them out this 20 to 22 March!

Beat the Monday Blues: Who's the cleverest Budgie of all?

Budgerigars (known as parakeets in the United States) may be small in size but they're definitely no bird brain! They can learn up to 200 hundred words and a variety of tricks! Watch this budgie in action to see just how clever these little birds can be!

If you're hoping to get another pet, it is important that you commit yourself to training your pet. As the video has proven, a good owner-pet relationship truly rewards. Do spend time teaching new tricks to your parakeet. Who knows, you might just be grooming your parakeet to pet superstardom!

Pet Care Tips: How to teach an old dog new tricks

Most people have this impression that in order to be able to better bond and train their new dog, they must get a puppy. Well, that's far from the truth. Older pets are usually less boisterous and will adapt to a new home faster and more easily. They are also as adept as picking up new tricks as long as their physical condition allows them to do so. Many of the Animal Welfare Groups have adult and older dogs waiting for new homes, so why not give them a chance to move their way into your heart? If you're looking for a canine companion, do sign up for our speed-dating encounter with the dogs at Pet Expo this 20 to 22 March. Find out more at our Events Page!

Beat the Monday Blues: Excuse me, may I have your carrot?

It's not every day you get to see a hamster taking off with an entire carrot, much less belonging to a rabbit. Well, today is one such day.

As much as it's adorable to see two different animals coming together, remember to always be on site to supervise to prevent any accidents. Make sure introduction is done properly between the animals. Here's a link that may be able to help you with introduction.
