We have written about Hong Kong Dog Rescue on here before and the fact that they need to leave their current site in Pokfulam. Unfortunately their new location did not work out which means that at the end of the month many dogs will be homeless. Below is a letter from HKDR founder Sally Anderson and we ask you to please spread the word if you know of anyone that is looking to adpot a dog or even foster one until they find a new home.
This cause is very close to my heart as I adopted my cat here in Hong Kong and I hate to think what would have happened to her if we didn’t give her a good home. HKDR will also be having a “Howl at the Moon” Party on April 28th to help support HKDR and we will post all the details in the next week or so.
If you have read my recent blog posts or today’s SCMP story on HKDR’s current situation, you will be aware that the land near Tung Chung that we had been planning to move to has turned out not to be suitable for use as a kennel.
All of our focus and efforts over the past few months have been on building a new Homing Centre there, and now we are left with nowhere to go. Swire Properties have confirmed that 30th April is the final deadline for us to leave our current Pokfulam Kennels site, which means that as from the end of this month HKDR – and that means all of the dogs – will be homeless.
We need help, and urgently. If you are thinking about adopting a dog, please come to our kennels and have a look at those that are waiting there. If you can foster until we sort a new site out (and we don’t know how long that will take), please offer a temporary home to one of our dogs. If you can donate money to help us pay for private boarding, or sponsor a particular dog’s boarding costs, please let us know.
We have just two weeks to find a place for our dogs. Please, please HELP. Send out this message to all of your friends, work colleagues or database if you have one.
We also need a place to build our planned Homing Centre. There must be someone who knows of a suitable site, so help us get the word out across Hong Kong.
PLEASE HELP! and thank you.
Sally Andersen (Founder, Hong Kong Dog Rescue)
