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

By Stephanie Lown 25 February 2020

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.
