Pet adoption event to be held on May 25 and 26
Friday, May 17, 2019
A two-day pet adoption event themed "Pets with Love" will be held at 3/F, iSQUARE, Tsim Sha Tsui, from noon to 7pm on May 25 and 26. Admission is free. Members of the public are welcome to join.
Organised by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD), and co-organised by the Hong Kong Rabbit Society, the Hong Kong Society of Herpetology Foundation, the Lifelong Animal Protection Charity, the Society for Abandoned Animals and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the event aims to encourage people to adopt abandoned or unclaimed animals and promote responsible pet ownership.
At the event, members of the public can meet rabbits and reptiles available for adoption, view photos or videos of cats that are up for adoption, and learn more about keeping animals and pet adoption. Other programmes include an educational exhibition, game booths, workshop, photo corner, speed sketching booth, and sharing by guests. To avoid causing stress to the small animals, dogs are not allowed to enter the venue.
The AFCD encourages members of the public who are interested in keeping a pet to adopt animals through animal welfare organisations. Currently, abandoned pets or unclaimed animals with a friendly temperament and good health will be sent to partner animal welfare organisations for adoption. Free desexing operations will be offered for dogs, cats and rabbits when they are adopted.
