Weekly Pupdates: Animals in need of adoption in Hong Kong

By Kopal Manglik 18 January 2022

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 have 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.

Wan Wan

Age: 3 years old

Gender: Female

Breed: Domestic shorthair

Description: Wan Wan has gone through quite the adventure before coming to HKSCDA. She used to live with a group of other stray cats and was fed by locals on a daily basis. However, wild dogs began to hunt the strays, and one was even killed. Fortunately, a volunteer called HKSCDA, and since then, the group of cats has been with the shelter. It is hard for wild cats to become comfortable in the home environment—that’s why Wan Wan requires an experienced adopter. She is still in fight or flight mode, so needs someone who can make her feel at home.

Best suited for: An experienced adopter.

Notes: To adopt from Hong Kong Saving Cats & Dogs, please fill out their cat adoption form.

Tigger (小啡)

Age: 8 years old

Gender: Male

Breed: Mixed breed

Description: Tigger (小啡) was abandoned at the SAA entrance when he was just a newborn puppy. He has since been wary and afraid of humans and can get stressed out when he sees a stranger approaching. However, he is slowly becoming comfortable with the regular volunteers and staff. He does have a number of health issues and ailments, so he needs a patient and caring adopter. As Tigger is prone to ear infections, he will need to live in an indoor area. He also has joint issues and requires regular injections and supplements. Still, this beautiful dog wants what we all do—love, care, plenty of cuddles, and a warm home.

Best suited for: Anyone with the patience to help Tigger come out of his shell.

Notes: To adopt from SAA, please read their terms and conditions.

She does have a couple of health issues, which have made it harder for her to get adopted. She requires regular medication and vet consultations for her skin and ears, but otherwise, Lotus is a happy and bouncy pup, always ready to play and loves giving lots of kisses.

Best suited for: Anyone!

Notes: To adopt from SAA, please read their terms and conditions.
