Weekly Pupdates: Animals in need of a fur-ever home

By Kopal Manglik 4 May 2021

If you are thinking about getting a furry companion of your own, you may want to consider adopting from a rescue shelter before hitting the pet shop. Not only are you helping to sustain these charities by adopting from their shelters, but since they are run by animal welfare advocates, you can also be sure that they will be able to match the right rescue animal to cater to your lifestyle, ensuring a long-lasting and harmonious relationship.

To help make things easier for you, we’ve put together a weekly round-up of the most adorable companion animals available for adoption across Hong Kong. But before you proceed, have you considered what it takes to adopt a rescue animal? Are you able to afford the cost? Is your home safe enough for a dog? Don’t worry, you can find all the answers you need in our guide to everything you need to consider before adopting a dog in Hong Kong.

Breed: Domestic shorthair

Tanah

Age: 5 years old

She was found with a litter of kittens, but has been neutered since. Thankfully, she is no longer in pain and is slowly loving life as a gentle lap cat. She is looking for a fur-ever home where she can share all the love she has, in return for pets and scritches, of course!
