Background

As Covid restrictions are no longer in place, HK is open and sadly adoption rate has dropped to an all-time low. SPCA is seeking a new pool of foster parents to help look after animals in need as our homing center is at capacity.

What we have

Briefing, orientation, pet care supplies, training, or medical expenses can be provided.

Why this is important

With your help as foster parents, this will enable the SPCA to help more animals in need and to keep up our capacity in our rescue mission. You will also help animals to be nurtured in a home environment which will help increase their chance of adoption by integration with humans at an early age.

What we do

Our mission is to promote kindness to animals, to protect their health and welfare and to prevent cruelty to animals. We also endeavor to cultivate a deep respect for life in the community through humane education, as we believe this will benefit personal growth and the development of our society. Although we are the first charity in Hong Kong to deal with all aspects of animal welfare, we obtain around only 1% of our funding from the government. The rest of our funding comes from the generosity of the general public, for which we are extremely grateful. It is a constant challenge to raise the funds necessary to continue our work. We believe that animals are living creatures which like humans, are able to feel pain, hunger and thirst. We should not inflict any suffering upon our fellow creatures just because they can't speak. The SPCA believes that animals deserve our protection, compassion and respect. We aim to prevent their suffering wherever we can through: Rescue of abandoned, sick and injured animals. 1. Operating an Inspectorate to rescue animals including wildlife, help enforce animal welfare laws and initiate prosecution of offenders. 2. Providing of low-cost desexing for cats and dogs to prevent unwanted litters. 3. Rehoming abandoned and rescued animals. 4. Hospitalisation of homeless animals whenever possible, providing necessary basic veterinary care, treatment of disease or major surgery. 5. Helping to control the animal population by working within the community on programmes to desex loosely owned and feral animals, territory wide. 6. Monitoring of food animal welfare standards. 7. Lobbying and working with government to bring about improved animal welfare legislation. 8. Public education on responsible pet ownership and animal welfare concepts.
