EVENT: "Carousell's Another Day in Pawradise"
A heartfelt story of how our Toby found his forever home.
“We adopted Toby in Nov this year when we went to the ALL adoption drive at One North. Adopting Toby was not initially planned since we just wanted to see the animals first there. But after seeing the dogs and speaking to the volunteers from the various shelters there, we understood the good work done by the shelters and how much it meant to find suitable homes for these animals.
Toby was not the first dog that caught our attention at the event. However we soon noticed a friendly charming looking black dog that many people wanted to walk with. We then tried walking Toby and instantly felt a connection with him. After enquiring more about his story to understand how he ended up at the shelter, we began to seriously consider adopting Toby. After making another trip to the shelter the next day to see and walk him, we confirmed that we wanted to adopt Toby.
During his homestay with us, we had to learn to share our space with Toby and getting him used to our daily routine. At the same time, we also had to adjust our routine to give him his walks, attention and play time. It has not always been easy but the rewards of having Toby as a loyal companion with us has been rewarding. It is still a learning process for us and Catherine from ALL has been most helpful in sharing her advice with us (together with her husband).
Toby has brought much joy to our lives and we thank ALL for making this possible."
