While some animals are lucky to have found loving and caring owners, there are still many abandoned and stray animals living in harsh conditions on the streets of Hong Kong. According to The Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD), they are handling between 5,000-7,000 stray dogs annually, but the majority of stray animals are put down if homes cannot be found for them.

Everyone can play a part to help these animals to find a safe and affectionate home - Here are 4 organisations that you can support by volunteering or donating!

Paws Hero is dedicated to improving the lives of animals and they believe that education can create immense value by changing the mindset and behaviours of our future generation. With that in mind, they offer a Public Education Programme where they host interactive storytelling with kindergarten students, aiming to teach them the proper attitude to treat animals and to adopt, don’t shop.

They also have an educational hub, a space where they host various activities such as adoption day, training and more. They have hosted Water Fun Day with furry friends and Dog Massage previously, super adorable!

Sai Kung Stray Friends Foundation

Sai Kung Stray Friends Foundation is run by a group of volunteers who spend their free time rescuing stray, sick or injured dogs and providing them with medical care. The group tries to provide each animal with any necessary emergency surgeries, along with the basic health checkup, vaccinations, and de-sexing surgery. Since medical care is expensive, the group relies largely on donations. After medical care, the foundation helps to find these dogs loving permanent homes with a generous new owner!

TAILS Lantau (Team for Animals)

TAIL3

Team for Animals in Lantau South (TAILS) is a nonprofit organisation run by volunteers and the generous donations of donors and sponsors. Their goal is to create a world where animal welfare is the norm, and not just the expectation. You can either adopt or foster a cat or dog from TAILS, and they run several partnerships with organisations such as PetProject HK and Hot Tails Salon. Fun fact - Our team member, Annissa, adopted her cat from them 1.5 years ago!
