About Hong Kong Dog Rescue: HKDR was founded in 2003 for the specific purpose of saving dogs and puppies from the Hong Kong Government’s Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) Animal Management Centres, where thousands of dogs and puppies are destroyed every year. They are homeless and unwanted, and have just four days to live unless they are chosen for rehoming.

Although almost all HKDR dogs and puppies are still rescued from AFCD, these days many of our dogs are also ex-breeding dogs, those that are no longer useful for the purpose of producing puppies for the pet trade. These dogs are inevitably in poor health and condition due to their previous hard lives, and they need extensive veterinary treatment.

Only a small percentage of these dogs and puppies are lucky enough to be rescued by HKDR, after which the larger ones will be taken care of at our main Tai Po Homing Centre, while smaller dogs awaiting re-homing will stay at the Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre. Puppies usually live at the HKDR base on Lamma Island or stay in foster homes, and they are taken to Whiskers N Paws at Horizon Plaza, Ap Lei Chau, every Sunday from 2pm to 5pm where potential adopters can meet them and hopefully take them home.

As much as possible, puppies and smaller dogs are placed in temporary foster care where they can live in a home environment before being permanently adopted. HKDR’s foster network plays a vital role in helping dogs overcome the trauma of being abandoned or their previous unhappy circumstances, such as those that are rescued from breeding farms.

Alongside the rescue and re-homing efforts, education is also an important part of HKDR’s mission, and as part of that, the Education & Training Centre was opened on July 2013, directly opposite their Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre. This small venue is used for a variety of workshops and classes, all of which are designed to help improve dog-human understanding and so reduce the number of pets being abandoned. Whiskers N Paws also hosts the HKDR ‘Positive Partners’ Training Courses, which are designed to promote responsible pet ownership as well as reward-based training methods.

Hong Kong Dog Rescue Needs Flag Day Volunteers

18 Jul

What is a Flag Day Appeal? A number of days each year are allocated by the Lotteries Fund Advisory Committee (LFAC) allowing various nonprofit organizations meeting the eligibility criteria to raise funds through the sale of ‘flags’.

Why are they called flags? Before stickers were invented the ‘flags’ consisted of a small piece of paper printed with the logo of the nonprofit that would be pinned to the donor’s shirt with a pin, looking like a little flag.

hkdr 2Hong Kong Dog Rescue will be holding their Flag Day Appeal on 27 July and needs about 50 volunteers to help them sell flags on the day.

Date: Wednesday, 27 July 2016

Time: 6:30am – 12:30pm

Place: Central

hkdrAbout Hong Kong Dog Rescue: HKDR was founded in 2003 for the specific purpose of saving dogs and puppies from the Hong Kong Government’s Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) Animal Management Centres, where around 7,000 dogs and puppies are destroyed every year. A lot them of were family pets that had been abandoned on the street or in country parks, while others have been directly surrendered. Many are puppies that are the result of irresponsible owners not desexing their pets, or are those born to abandoned or stray dogs. They all have one thing in common and that is that they are homeless and unwanted, and have just four days to live unless they are chosen for re-homing.

Only a small percentage of these dogs and puppies are lucky enough to be rescued by HKDR, after which the larger ones will be taken care of at their main Tai Po Homing Centre, while smaller dogs awaiting re-homing will stay at the Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre.
