SPCA’s New Initiative Turns Your Backgrounds Into Virtual Homes For Pets

We have all been affected by the current state of the world one way or another, and no one has been spared. While we’re busy trying to go on with our regular lives, we have to remind ourselves to be aware of a group that relies on all of us for support — animals.

The Circuit Breaker has resulted in the suspension of adoption drives and fundraising events, which is why the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Singapore (SPCA) has launched the Background Homes initiative.

The Background Homes initiative displays animals up for adoption in home settings, and these images can be downloaded and used as backgrounds during your virtual meetings. By using these background images, users automatically become advocates for these animals — the SPCA hopes that this will bring about more awareness to both the animals and the organisation’s adoption drives. On top of discovering more virtual homes, their website also provides more information on adopting, fostering or how members of the public can contribute to the cause.

While these animals look adorable in these background homes, hopefully they’ll be able to find their forever homes too.

Download your own Background Home at backgroundhomes.spca.org.sg, and help spread the word with #BackgroundHomes. Potential adopters can sign up for first-hand updates when adoptions resume after the Circuit Breaker is lifted. To donate to the SPCA, click here.
