Emporium Pet-a-Porter 2009

Here is a little background: We are a family of dog lovers. Daddy and Mommy used to volunteer at the SPCA in Singapore, even before my siblings were born. Not long after, Mommy became too distraught, when she discovered that the SPCA had to put down some 90% of the animals they rescued because of space constraint. It was necessary but painful nonetheless, especially when it happened to animals they nursed and babysat.

They left to help out at a private animal shelter, Noah's Ark, which was a no kill zone. In fact, Mommy only found out that she was pregnant with Janelle, when she bled while cycling on the way home from Noah's Ark. No more cycling or strenuous chores after that but off and on, whenever they could, they still visited to spend time with their four-legged pals.

That's sweet.
I admire people that work for animal shelters and help out wherever they can!
I've seen quite a few sad things animal related over the last few Expat travel years.

Aren't they so cute all dolled up!

I for one adopted a stray cat who was caught in between some barb wires. And I am loving her.

Noah's Ark is a wonderful organization. It's amazing that you have time to help dogs having a baby. Bless you. I love the photos!

Awwww, what sweet friends! I too am an animal lover, I can't imagine how hard it was to have to say goodbye to the ones that were put to sleep...
