Hong Kong Dog Rescue

Hi all!
As most of you may know, I am in Hong Kong for the week and today I got to go to the Hong Kong Dog Rescue on the big island.
It was a long drive to it, but it was totally worth it.
I only have two pictures, and they’re of the front of the building, which I’ll upload when I get home.

Hong Kong Dog Rescue is a no-kill organization that houses dogs until they find homes.
All the dogs looked very healthy, and were very happy. It was a mostly outdoor facility but they are in the process of remodeling as we speak.

HKDR has 7 full time employees (their dog trainer is from San Francisco!), and about 150-200 dedicated volunteers who mainly take care of walking the dogs, but also have a big whiteboard they can write anything weird they notice about the dogs on. The dogs also have their own little forest-y area to run around and play.

The facility is split into two sides, one for the more playful dogs and one for the slightly “aggressive” dogs. But, the man I talked to says they rarely see this. During the day, all the dogs healthy enough to come out and play are allowed too. And there is a bathing schedule for everyone as well.

I’m sure you’re wondering by now…how many dogs are there??
Well…there’s 200! No joke!
They also have several smaller dogs in foster programs because they cannot handle the stress of the barking of the other dogs in the shelter.

If you’d like to learn more, the website is www.hongkongdogrescue.com or you can email me at vhs_animalcare_assistant@yahoo.com

I’m glad I got to learn about this organization, and I am so glad that these dogs will find their forever homes. Last week, they had 6 adoptions, and they are trying to up these numbers all the times.

Thanks!
