For my photography class' final assignment, I wanted to talk about a serious issue - pet abandonment.
Personally, I don't own a pet (unless you count fishes as pets). I'm dying to have one, but my whole family are dead against the idea. I don't blame them. Getting a pet is a commitment, but we're all too busy with our own lives. If we ever had a pet, my maid would probably be the one taking care of it in the end (just like what many families do WHICH I THINK IS WRONG!)
Pet abandonment is a huge problem that is increasing year after year. I've been dying to visit the SPCA Singapore (never been there before, living under the rock T-T) to see what the place was like, how the pets lived and how the volunteers were coping. I looked up the website before I went down because I wanted to understand the stories behind the cute and furry little creatures first.
You can view this photo essay and play it to this song. I love P!nk, her songs are so relatable.
It was quite upsetting to see the surroundings under construction to build bigger and better homes, and then there's the SPCA in the middle of it that looks rundown.
Taking pictures of the pets at the animal shelter is bloody difficult! They kept moving about! But I think I did a pretty decent job, nonetheless. If you're looking for a companion, please choose to adopt instead!
