Sugar HDB-Approved (Under Project Adore)

* Female
* Local crossbreed
* 7 months old
* Sweet temperament
* Good with human & good with other dogs

Sugar and spice and all things nice - that's what Baby Sugar is made of! She is one sweet treat that is good for your heart, mind and soul. 

Sweet in temperament as the name she is given, Baby Sugar is good with people and loves being with other dogs (and taking them for walks). What makes this an even sweeter deal is that she is HDB-approved! She is estimated to be around 4 months of age. Still a puppy, and one recovering from a severe injury, her new family should not leave her alone for long hours at this time. She needs 5 small meals a day and at least 2 walks. Her new family will also need to keep up with her hydrotherapy sessions for at least 3 months until the vet signs off on her recovery.

Adora HDB-Approved (Under Project Adore)

* Female
* Local crossbreed
* 2 years old
* Pee pad & grass trained
* Calm, good on leash

Adora is an absolute darling to take care of and she loves her food. She even takes her medicines without qualms! She has food aggression, due to being starved at one point in her life, but we are confident that time and trust will resolve this.

Adora is an independent girl with no separation anxiety. She loves the company of humans and most dogs.

This is her story.

You might not be able to tell from her smiley face that Adora has actually gone through alot. We hope that after all she had suffered, she can find a place she can call home soon.
Alyssa HDB-Approved (Under Project Adore)

*Female
*Local crossbreed
*1 year old
*Healthy, vaccinated

Little Alyssa is little no more but she is just as lovable as the day we got her. Her leg has healed nicely but she will need to continue her hydrotherapy for a while. And since she has taken to the water, she would love to continue to go for leisure swims after the required therapy ends. 

Alyssa still has all her puppy energy and will need a family who can spend more time with her to nurture and guide her and help her grow in confidence. She should not be left alone for too long in her young age and her new mommy and daddy will need to sign up with HOPE's assigned dog trainer for basic obedience classes. This will help her build character and confidence and become a good canine citizen that other young puppies can look up to! An existing doggy sibling would be a bonus to help show her how to dog! 

Alyssa was under-nourished when we rescued her and we are still trying to build her weight up gradually so she needs to be fed 3 times a day with nutritious home-cooked food.

Blake (Not HDB-Approved)

*Male
*Local crossbreed
*3.5 years old
*Sweet natured, gets along well with other dogs and teenage. 
*Moderate energy, timid, slow to warm up.

An act of human cruelty, Blake was found with two huge fish hooks deeply embedded in his legs, causing his legs to swell from a severe infection. That was when he was 6 months old.

He has now been living in a boarding facility for the past 5 mths. Blake is extremely shy and timid, thus he is not coping well with the stress of being in a small shop with so many other dogs. He has lost a lot of weight and now has developed skin problems. 

Blake is a gorgeous dog and extremely sweet natured. He will take time to trust but once he opens up, you can be assured he'll be your best friend for life!

Brandy HDB-approved (Under Project ADORE) 

*Female
*Local crossbreed
*7 years old

Brandy is one tough cookie. First discovered as part of a litter of 4 pups in 2009, she is now the only one left on the streets. If not for her accident, this girl will still be roaming the streets as she pleased. Unfortunately, as is the fate of most strays, she found herself in a face-off with a vehicle and came out on the losing end. Read her story here. We got to her in time and Brandy is now looking for a new lease of life in someone's home. 

Brandy is an older dog, around 7 years old. She is a very sweet-natured dog with no signs of aggression and is quick to warm up to the humans she recognizes. She is very laid-back and loves her home-cooked meals. Her sling has been removed and she is walking normally, though the injured leg tires easily from lack of use while it was recovering. She will need to have her leg massaged for 20min twice daily to help strengthen it. She is also being treated for heartworm and coughs occasonally so her new mommy or daddy will need to keep up with her medications as required. Brandy gets on with dogs and people. 


Charlie (Not HDB-approved)

* Male
* Golden Retriever
* 13 years old

Poor Charlie was clearly a victim of abandonment. He was found leashed to a lamp post for hours - he must have felt really scared and helpless as his gums and mouth were bleeding from biting at the leash. A kind soul took him home before we managed to pick him up and rushed him to the vet. Read more on his rescue here.  

Charlie is relatively healthy and is estimated to be 12 years old. He has, however, shown early signs of cataract and would need to be on supplements for his kidney, liver and joints. Charlie is on two home cooked meals a day - with 600 g of meat plus a serving of vegetables and fruits per meal. He also needs a minimum of two walks per day and due to his skin condition, he needs air conditioning or fan at home.

Perhaps due to the trauma, Charlie has mild separation anxiety and will bark for a while when there’s no one around. He also has a fear of rain/thunder/loud noise. Bearing in mind that Charlie is a senior dog, it's important that his future family is aware of the physical and financial needs to adopt him.

Will you provide this poor abandoned boy a forever home again?

Chester (Not HDB-approved)

*Male
*Local crossbreed
*3-4 years old
*Sweet temperament
*Excellent running buddy, keeps pace
*Gets along with humans and other dogs

It has been a heartbreaking December for our latest rescue, Chester, who was found with maggots crawling out of the wounds on his head and ears. He was found to be shaking his head from the discomfort and pain he was experiencing. Thankfully, our volunteers were able to gain his trust and were able to bring him to the vet to get his wounds checked and cleaned.
We are happy to say that Chester is now on the road to recovery and is looking for a home to call his own. Chester is a very sweet boy who is good with people and loves jogging. He is so impressive, he even manages to keep pace!

He is estimated to be about 2 to 3 years of age and is sterilized. He loves his food, goats milk and gets along with humans and calm dogs.
We hope to find him a good home soon so that we can help two of his other friends get off the streets before the authorities get to them. As we head into 2017 and prepare our New Year’s resolution, let’s all create a resolution to help give Chester a better 2017.

Cody (Not HDB-approved)

* Local Male crossbreed
* 3+ years old
* Strong, tall and handsome boy
* Calm and moderate energy
* Walks extremely well on leash
* Outdoor-trained
* Good with dogs, but needs time to warm up
* Still getting used to human contact, not tested with children

Looking for someone tall, dark and handsome? Well, 2 out of 3 ain't bad. Cody isn't dark, but he is definitely tall and handsome!

Cody is a local crossbreed, approximately 2-3 years old. He is calm and of moderate energy. He can be a bit timid around people he does not know and is still getting used to human contact, but he is otherwise very sweet. Despite his wariness of people, he loves walks and adventures! He is outdoor trained and walks very well on leash. He does not tug or lag behind, but will let you set the pace and follow alongside you quietly. 

Cody needs a patient owner who can help him overcome his shyness in his own time. If you would like to take this shy but dashing boy home, email hopedogrescue@singnet.com.sg.

Happy (Not HDB-approved) 

* Local crossbreed, Female, 3+ years old
* Sterilised, Vaccinated, Microchipped
* Moderate energy, grass trained 
* Good with children
* Good with dogs

Happy was a victim of abandonment. She was tied to a bench on a very short leash before a passerby informed us of her predicament.
Happy is healthy and well. She loves her food and is walking much better on leash. 

Happy is rather comfortable living in a home with a garden, playing on her own and being the occasionalel gardener.  She has been waiting for a home for almost 2 years now.

Vera (Not HDB-approved)

* Local Female crossbreed
* 3 yrs old
* Sterilized, Vaccinated & Microchipped
* Sweet and docile 
* Love being patted and adores affection from human
* Slight separation anxiety
* Love walks and suntanning 
* Good with dogs

I was found with two gaping holes on my leg, which explains why I'm wearing the pink bandage (and totally rocking the look). My wounds are healing well now and I am a very healthy lass with no other issues to concern myself (or the volunteers) over. 

Some have said that I look like a police dog, well built and strong. Not just in looks, but I also have the intelligence and the endurance of a working dog. Do you like running early in the morning or at night? Not only will I be able to keep up with you, with me by your side, you can be sure I will keep you safe just by looking like a police dog. But don't be fooled by my looks. I am hardly as intimidating as a police dog. I am actually super friendly and affectionate. I'm more likely to attack people with kisses than with bites but shhhhh, don't tell anyone that! I am also super calm and walk really well on leash, if running is not your thing, and I adore kids. 

I am looking for my furever home. If you would like a running buddy, I am the dog for you! I am a healthy 22kg though, so am not HDB-approved. To hire me as your running buddy , email hopedogrescue@singnet.com.sg.

Harper HDB-Approved (Under Project Adore)
*Special Needs Dog

* Local crossbreed, Female, 4 years old (born with a broken spine)
* Vaccinated 

* Moves about with her wheelchair, incontinent
* Good with children
* Good with dogs


Born with a severe handicap in her lower spine that cripples her from the waist down, six-week-old Harper was crawling on her chest and dragging her hind legs painfully over rough gravel when she was first spotted in a construction site on Jurong Island. It was so hard for her to search for food, that she had to swallow gravel and metal pins to alleviate the gnawing hunger in her stomach sometimes. Such was the hard life that baby Harper had.


Her fate changed for the better when Mr. Aziz, a kind Muslim man who worked in that area, brought her to HOPE’s attention. With the fosterers and volunteers’ love and patience, Harper is now a changed dog. She is much happier and clearly enjoys the new lease of life given to her. After the rescue, Harper went through two more unfortunate episodes that threatened to take her away from us – a chest infection due to the haze, and a blockage in her stomach, but she braved them all, valiantly and admirably, just like a warrior. Since then, her health condition has improved a lot, though she is still wobbly and unable to control her pee and poo. She has been attending regular hydrotherapy and acupuncture sessions to help build muscles and stimulate her nerves. She is now able to walk for a few minutes unaided.
She is a year old, and is a bundle of joy to all those who have had the good fortune to meet her. She is sweet-natured, fun-loving and as playful as can be. We hope to find someone who can give her a loving home and the proper care that she deserves. Would you be that someone?

Kopi (Not HDB-Approved)

* 3-4 years old
* Male
* Local crossbreed
* Sterilized, microchipped, and vaccinated
* Extremely loyal and determined
* Good with humans

Kopi is tall and suave. Because he looks very much like Audi and Vera, we suspect that he might be their sibling. He spent years of his life being bounced from home to home, before finally being kicked out for good. Despite this, Kopi is an extremely loyal boy with dogged determination. He's a dog that was born to love and be loved. He is sweet, affectionate, intelligent, and handsome. You will never run out of Kopi at home with him around!

Matilda HDB-Approved (Under Project Adore)

* Local crossbreed, female, 3 years old
* Sterilised, vaccinated, microchipped
* Pee pad trained
* Affectionate, playful
* Good with calm and older children
* Good with dogs

Matilda had a rough start in life, living in a vacated factory that used to deal with heavy metals. She was picked up for a bloated tummy and was also later discovered to be suffering from lead poisoning.  She has now recovered and is very healthy, except for a slightly elevated level of lead in her blood as her body is slowly expelling it naturally.

Matilda has a unique brindle coat, and at 7 months old, already weighs 18kg. She is very sweet, playful, goofy and affectionate. She gets along well with children and other dogs. She is a food enthusiast and has an extremely healthy appetite! She is learning to walk on leash, but is easily startled by loud noises, so will require a patient family to help her gain confidence and be more assured around noise. 

Will you open your heart and home to this gentle sweetheart?

Matthieu HDB-Approved (Under Project Adore)
*Special Needs Dog

* Local crossbreed, Male, 14 years old (doesn't have the use of his hinds legs)
* Sterilised, Vaccinated
* Able to walk short distances slowly
* Good with calm and older children
* Good with dogs


Matthieu’s story touched, and broke, many hearts. His perseverance to survive was seen when he was injured and paralyzed from the waist down and yet survived by hiding under a lorry for two weeks before Mr Aziz informed us of his plight.
Since his rescue till now, everyone has been working hard to help Matthieu regain muscle tone in his hind legs. Matthieu requires many hydrotherapy  and acupuncture sessions to build up his muscles and stimulate his nerve sensations.  He can now walk on his own, unaided for a few minutes and that’s a true miracle.

Matthieu has suffered 10 long years, living his life as a stray, not knowing what tomorrow had in store for him. He doesn’t ask for much, just a garden to move about without hurting himself and a family to show him that his 10 years of waiting and struggling is finally over. Would you give Matthieu a home?

SiDa HDB-Approved (Under Project Adore)
*Special Needs Dog

* Local crossbreed, Female, 4-5 years old
* Sterilised, Vaccinated

* Moves about with her wheelchair, incontinent
* Good with children
* Only good with certain dogs

From being a victim of a hit-and-run incident, Sida has come a long way in her recovery. Even though the incident left her incontinent & paralyzed waist down, Sida has kept her positive outlook to life. She is strongly loyal and affectionate to humans and absolutely loves being pat and getting belly rubs! 

Even in her condition, Sida is no pushover and she is often dubbed the Queen by the volunteers. :) Yet, Sida can be very tolerant to other doggies and can even make friends with them! She has now even learned how to play with the other doggies despite her condition!

catS FOR ADOPTION

Currently, we are looking for homes for some of Uncle Seng's cats. Click here to read his story. When we first took in these cats, they were very afraid and unfriendly. They had lived their whole lives in a secluded factory, and Uncle Seng was the only human they ever knew. We thought they were semi-feral at first. But over time, as they got used to human interaction, they have become more friendly, and even trusting.

Right now, all these cats are living at a boarding facility. However, they're all old and sick, and desperately need a real home. We understand that they are not ideal pets for a lot of people, but we are hoping that there is a cat lover out there, who will have the kindness to share his/her home with these needy senior cats.
