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

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 | Dogs | Small Animals


Cats

Name: Val (F)
Age: 8 years old
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Description: Our friendly (when she knows you) sanctuary cat! Val gets on well with the other cats. For a treat or a tin of Kakato tuna, she’s yours. She’s a fun, playful, and affectionate cat and she deserves to be someone’s best friend.
Best suited for… A home with a person(s) who is patient and will give her the time she needs to slowly adapt to a home where she is either the cat or one of a couple of cats.
Notes: URGENT—Val is in urgent need of a foster by this Saturday—can you help? To meet Val, contact Kirsten’s Zoo Charity below.

To adopt Val, fill out this adoption questionnaire or email [email protected] for more information.

Name: Lucky (M)
Age: 3 months old
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Description: At eight weeks old, Lucky was found with a damaged skull bone, exposing the lining of his brain.

Lucky’s injury healed under the love and care of our team and now he is ready to receive love in a forever home. This loveable little guy enjoys human interaction and is very vocal. Please note that due to Lucky’s head injury, it would be better for him to be your only pet, as he should avoid playing with other animals. Are you willing to make Lucky even luckier by giving him a forever home?
Best suited for… A loving family.

Name: Jade (F)
Age: 5 years old
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
