Organization: Hong Kong Dog Rescue
Introduction: Prior to 2002, when HKDR was established, one of the only recourses for stray and unwanted dogs and puppies was the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD), which would euthanize many animals only a few days after receiving them. HKDR was founded specifically to prevent this course of action and to instead rescue, rehabilitate and re-house as many of these animals as possible. In order to prepare dogs and puppies for adoption into local homes, HKDR uses positive reinforcement in the entirety of its animal training and rehabilitation work. Furthermore, dogs that stay at the organization’s Tai Po or Ap Lei Chau premises are fed, cleaned and walked daily, as well as regularly taken for vet checkups and vaccinations.
