The “Pets with Love” Dog Adoption Carnival will be held at the Soccer Pitch of Lai Chi Kok Park Phase I from noon to 6:00 pm this weekend 20-21 January. Admission is free.
The carnival aims to encourage people to adopt abandoned or unclaimed animals, and promote responsible pet ownership. The event is jointly organised by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD), Cheung Chau Animal Care, the Conservation of Earth and Animal Association, the Hong Kong Saving Cat and Dog Association, the Hong Kong Society of Herpetology Foundation, Lifelong Animal Protection, the Society for Abandoned Animals and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The AFCD always encourages the public to adopt animals through animal welfare organisations. Currently, abandoned pets or unclaimed animals with a friendly temperament and good health will be sent to 19 partner animal welfare organisations for adoption. Free desexing operations will be offered for cats, dogs and rabbits when they are adopted.
An array of informative and entertaining activities will be held at the carnival, including sharing sessions by guests, demonstrations by the AFCD’s quarantine detector dogs, game booths, a dogs’ playground, an educational exhibition, handicraft workshops and dog adoption and dog licensing services, as well as basic vet consultation services. Visitors can also meet some of the dogs that are up for adoption.
Participants are welcome to take their dogs to the event. All dogs entering the venue should be under proper control, in addition to being licensed, vaccinated against rabies and microchipped. Participants with dogs shall use the Pet Pathway for scanning their dogs’ microchips.
