Yes or no, right or wrong, one year on, this bunch of volunteers have shown the world that they have managed to change the lives of 85 dogs, once viewed as nothing more than mere puppy-producing machines.
A whopping 75 dogs got adopted. 6 unfortunately passed away. 4 remain up for adoption.
This is nothing short of an incredible feat and we are filled with the greatest admiration for the people who made this happen.
One year on, these former puppy mill breeding dogs are coming back together. Except under very different circumstances. Their lives are no longer bleak. They are no longer malnourished, diseased and on the brink of death. Their eyes are no longer dull and lifeless.
They are just beginning to find out what a dog's life ought really to be like, that us humans can and do care.
Gentle Paws is grateful to have been invited to be part of the festivities. We hereby cordially invite YOU (yes you!) to drop by our booth at the Dogmillrehomers 1st Anniversary Reunion.
A whole array of items will be awaiting your purchase! This includes (but is not limited to)...
Our exclusive Gentle Paws tee that is made for all occasions. Never underestimate the level of comfort a plain ol' t-shirt can give you. You can wear it to go for a run, to grab lunch downstairs, to sleep and of course, to get down and dirty at the shelter.
Or what about our limited edition handmade Gentle Paws keychains? Need something to remember your favourite furkid by? These key chains are light-weight, colourful and made with lots of love.
Pardon our French!
Not interested in much shopping? In conjunction with other shelters, we'll also be involved in the adoption drive. A few of our friendly furkids will be joining us at our booth to meet new faces and possibly, potential adopters. If you're interested to meet our dogs or know more about our adoption processes, do drop by for a chat! We'll be more than pleased to talk to you.
Want to make this weekend a little different? Then please do consider dropping by Mutts and Mittens from 11AM-5PM at 11 Pasir Ris Farmway 2.
We will see you there!
