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

By Kopal Manglik 7 April 2021

If you are thinking about getting a furry companion of your own, you may want to consider adopting from one of these rescue shelters 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 roundup of the most adorable companion animals available for adoption across Hong Kong.

Before you proceed, have you considered what it takes to adopt a rescue animal? Are you able to afford the cost of taking care of an animal? 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.

Cats

🐾

Baxter

Age: 3 years old

Gender: Male

Breed: Domestic shorthair

Description: Baxter has turned a corner in his foster home and although it may have taken longer than we hoped, it has indeed been worth it. He’s taking treats from his foster mother’s fingers now and reminds her by meowing quite loudly when it’s mealtime—as if she could forget. Baxter loves his food and it’s certainly is the way to his heart. He has a way to go—he wants to trust and he’s almost there.

Best suited for: A person or a couple.

Notes: To adopt from Kirsten’s Zoo, please fill in their cat adoption form.

Fang & Celeste

Age: 3 and 5 years old respectively

Gender: Male and female respectively

Breed: Devon Rex and Domestic shorthair respectively

Description: Fang and Celeste are best friends. They are friendly and affectionate and love to play with everyone around them. Sadly, their owner passed away and so they are looking for a new home. Celeste is confident and friendly, also loves children. Fang is a little nervous and takes a bit longer to gain confidence, but will then be very attached, too. These two must be adopted together.

Best suited for: Families—they do not like to be left alone for too long.

Kuro

Age: 1 year old

Although she hasn’t lived with children before, she is quite comfortable, as long as they’re not toddlers.

Best suited for: A couple or a family with older kids.

Dogs

🐾

Elise & Evan

Age: 8 and 9 years old respectively

Description: Elise is friendly by nature. She loves to play, especially with her friend Evan. Evan is inquisitive by nature and good friends with Elise. Sadly, these dogs have not been fed dog food or taken for walks for two years. Their circumstances have changed dramatically and they are about to lose the home they have known since being young puppies! Thankfully, they have had each other, and we are determined to see them have their much-deserved happy ending in a home with food, walks, and love.

Best suited for: A person, couple or family who will give the dogs regular walks and lots of love.

Notes: To adopt from Kirsten’s Zoo, please fill in the dog adoption form.

HaHa (哈哈)

Age: 5.5 years old

Sex: Male

Breed: Mixed breed

Description: Gorgeous boy HaHa was found in a plastic box with two other newborn puppies and was sent to SAA by a kind passer-by. Over the last five years, he has grown up to be a warm and friendly dog who loves human companionship. He does need a little extra TLC as he suffers from sensitive skin and dry-eye, and will therefore require medication and regular check-ups. But otherwise, he’s just like any other dog, looking to be someone’s best friend.

Katie

Age: 2 years old

Breed: Mixed breed

Gender: Female

Description: Katie was found in a house that had two adult desexed dogs, but one female somehow became pregnant... surprise, surprise! She had three puppies, including Katie. Both her siblings are adopted and now it’s time that Katie finds a real home of her own! Katie is a sweet, affectionate and loving girl. Loves to be fussed over. When she’s curious about a noise, her ears point straight up and together similar to a German Shepard—so cute!

Best suited for: Any family with or without a dog. Katie can be shy at first (not always the case) so the family should be willing to spend time with her to build a stronger relationship before taking her home.

Notes: If you are interested to foster or adopt Katie from SKSFF, please email [email protected]

🐾

Lin Mui

Age: 9 years old

Gender: Female

Breed: Mixed breed

Description: Although Lin Mui is a one-eyed dog, it does not stop her from being a super friendly and gentle granny. She loves standing next to the window or up onto the door edge on her hind legs, which is indeed her way to seek attention and hope for a pat on the head. However, due to nervousness, Lin Mui needs to be fed from time to time when in a new environment.

Best suited for: Anyone!
