Weekly Pupdates: Animals in need of adoption in Hong Kong

By Kopal Manglik 26 October 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.

Cats

🐾

Gilbert & Gavin

Age: 3 and 9 years old

Gender: Males

Breed: Domestic shorthair

Description: Gilbert and Gavin are loving the space and all the climbing apparatus provided, and their life is quiet and relaxing, where feeding is on-demand and they receive lots of love and attention. It’s so very different from the life they had before they were rescued. Gavin loves his chin rubs and the treats offered, and will gladly take them. Gilbert is far more comfortable and clearly happy, though not yet as confident as his buddy Gavin. Gilbert and Gavin are very attached and would love a home together!

Best suited for: Any family!

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

Kiwi

Age: 6 years old

Gender: Male

Breed: Domestic shorthair

Description: This adorable boy is super gentle and well-behaved. He interacts well with everyone—humans and animals alike. He has an elegant quality about him, and the way he sits and talks is very gentlemanly. He will fit right into any home, so do come and adopt him if you’re interested.

Best suited for: Anyone!

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

Dogs

🐾

Small dogs

Age: All ages

Gender: Male and female

Breed: Mixed breeds

Description: Hong Kong Dog Rescue has taken in over 30 small dogs this weekend from a number of sources, of all ages and breeds with a variety of temperaments. Some of the dogs taken in are breeder rejects, including an adult Shiba Inu with a twitch caused by neurological damage. Another two sad cases include a Shiba Inu puppy with no back legs and a Pomeranian puppy suffering from a pneumonia-related collapsed lung and a heart problem—a stark reminder of why you should adopt instead of buying a pup from a breeder.

Best suited for: Anyone!

Notes: To adopt from Hong Kong Dog Rescue, please fill out their adoption form.

🐾

McNugget

Age: 9 months old

Gender: Female

Breed: Mixed breed

Description: From being a doggie who will jump up when meeting people to now a more mature dog who will quietly wait for you to approach, McNugget has definitely improved loads on her behaviour! However, her passion for food and playfulness remain. She always gets super excited when seeing toys. While grabbing them in her mouth, McNugget will shake the toys in her mouth and will also follow you when you have treats in hand.

Best suited for: Family with no puppies.

Notes: If you are interested in adopting McNugget from SPCA, please contact the SPCA Wan Chai Headquarters at (+852) 2232 5529 and mention her number (PN: 503767) while speaking with their representatives.

Big Boy

Age: 9 months old

Gender: Male

Breed: Great Dane Cross

Description: At only nine months old, Big Boy currently weighs over 100 pounds and is over 5.5 feet tall. Despite having such an enormous physique, Big Boy is indeed a kid at heart; he loves to be around people. Once someone accompanies him, he will stick close to you and not let you go. As all kids love to play, Big Boy is no exception to the rule. He can basically have fun with everything.

Best suited for: Family with a relatively large living space.

Notes: If you are interested in adopting Big Boy from SPCA, please contact the SPCA Wan Chai Headquarters at (+852) 2232 5529 and mention her number (PN: 507926) while speaking with their representatives.

🐾

Oreo

Age: 8 years old

Gender: Female

Breed: Mixed breed

Description: What a gorgeous and chubby character Oreo is! She is doing great in her foster home and has started losing the vet-recommended weight—already one kilogramme down. Great with dogs and people alike, she would be happiest with a dog or access to dogs that she can hang out with. Such a happy character and impossible not to love, she’s always been around dogs and children. Oreo loves her new life, going to the beach, and visiting restaurants and friends’ homes for play dates—she is ready for her fur-ever home.

Best suited for: Any family!

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

🐾

Cooper

Age: 4 years old

Gender: Male

Breed: Mixed breed

Description: Cooper is an adorable young dog who was found during a trap-neuter-rescue mission. Although some people would give food, his pack of dogs would sometimes trample or bite Cooper to get to the food. The area where he lived was also very dangerous with lots of speeding cars. With his gentle nature, the volunteers didn’t have the heart to return him after neutering and are hoping Cooper can find a lovely fur-ever home!

Best suited for: Anyone!

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

Mochi

Age: 7 years old

Gender: Male

Breed: Poodle Mix

Description: This poor little beauty has been through so much—he has lost function in his hind legs presumably because he was kicked, although it is not certain. He is still a happy-go-lucky little pup, he’s had his required surgeries, and has a wheelchair which he loves. Please give this little boy another chance at a happy home!

Best suited for: Anyone willing and able to put in the time and effort required.

Notes: To adopt from LAP, please fill in their dog adoption form.

🐾

Sadie

Age: 4 months old

Gender: Female

Breed: Mixed breed

Description: Adorable little Sadie was surrendered to LAP due to an emergency! She had a knife-sharp piece of plastic stuck in her throat and her tongue was cut, but with the care of wonderful vets and volunteers, she has recovered well. She is truly an angelic dog with a calm and patient personality—great with kids and adults alike. Despite being a young pup, and a beautiful one at that, she does not have as much of the crazy zoomies, and instead will come and sit with you while asking for cuddles.

Best suited for: Anyone!

Notes: To adopt from LAP, please fill in their dog adoption form.

🐾

Puppy

Age: 2 months old

Gender: Male

Breed: Sharpei Mix

Description: His sister has been adopted and this adorable male puppy is left all alone with his mummy! Rescued on 15 September, the family has been eating and sleeping tons, growing up to be gorgeous with wrinkly cute faces. As with all puppies, he loves to eat, sleep, and play! Puppy and mummy have both had their medical checks and are healthy, and will soon receive their vaccinations. Mummy is also neutered and ready to be adopted. Both do not have names yet, so reach out to reserve them and give them their forever name.

Best suited for: Anyone!

Notes: Please email to adopt from SKSFF.
