"A great friendship starts with a paw shake - reach out!"

The highly successful speed-dating for dogs by the Agri-Food & Veterinary (AVA) and its animal welfare partners is back for the second year at Pet Expo! Whether you're looking for a canine friend to bring home or just need some puppy love for the day, come and visit us!

Each speed-dating with dogs is 10 minutes and you get to walk away with an instant photo print with your dates (approximately three dogs in a park), a gift bag and probably lots of sloppy kisses!

Pet Care Tips: How to care for a pet gerbile

Recently, one of our RPO animal ambassadors, Winston the gerbil, passed away from cancer (and old age). Gerbils are wonderful animals but they are not so much known here. Today's video shows you how to care for a gerbil and we go "woah" at their gorgeous living arrangement with this owner.

When you need a friend, I'll be there

Animals make great friends. In good times and bad, they're always there.

Although we don't allow tortoises to be kept as pets in Singapore, we have people keeping and loving their terrapins. They too, may turn 'turtle'. Be sure to be a good owner to help them turn over. :)

Pet Adoption Friday: Bobby from Noah's Ark CARES


Name: Bobby
Age: 8-9 years old (estimated)
Sex: Male
Breed: JRT
Sterilised: Yes
Personality: Bobby was kept in a cage while growing up so now he loves his newly-attained freedom but yet, not too hyper. He is very motivated by food and affection. He gets along well with other dogs.

Bobby had a huge growth under his chin removed, and is still waiting for his forever home. We believe good things come to those who wait. Will you be the one for this happy-go-lucky boy? Read about his rescue at

Please email if you are able to give him a permanent home.

Pet Care Tips: How to prepare Critical Care for your rabbit

Critical Care is a highly nutritious powdered mix and is normally given when your rabbit is unwell and needs to be force fed. Today's video teaches you how to prepare Critical Care and syringe feed your bunny with it. For any further questions, please consult your rabbit's veterinarian.

Beat The Monday Blues: Bunny gets kissed by... raspberries!

Animals are such stress relievers. They do the simplest of things and we just melt instantly. Today's BTMB is one of such - a bunny eating raspberries!

Talking about rabbits and their diet, it's important to feed them lots of hay. Fruits are like snacks to them, so give them sparingly and remember to record them down so you can smile the next time you're down!
