     The Hong Kong Police Dog Unit and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Hong Kong) (SPCA) will jointly host the Police Dog Trial at the Tseung Kwan O Sports Ground on November 3 (Sunday) from 12.30pm to 5pm.

     The tickets for the trial, a charitable event with all proceeds going to the SPCA and Operation Santa Claus, are now available on sale.

     ˇ§Apart from raising money for good causes, the event also aims to promote the unique work of the Police Dog Unit and at the same time raise public awareness on animal care issues. We hope that the community will support this meaningful event,ˇ¨ the Chief Inspector of Police (Police Dog Unit), Mr Lee Cheuk-wai, said.

     ˇ§Police Dog Trial is a good opportunity for members of the public to meet with police dogs that are professionally trained and dedicated to protect the community. In the trial held in 2010, people were impressed seeing the high standards demonstrated by police dogs during the competition,ˇ¨ the Executive Director of SPCA, Mr Sandy Macalister, said.

     In the past, the Police Dog Unit held internal dog trials, which showcased the wide variety of tasks and skills which police dogs were able to perform. In 2010, members of the public were invited to attend the trial for the first time in order to open it to a wide audience of animal lovers.

     Three years on, new generation of police dogs have been trained and it is about time for them to compete for various titles in the 13th Police Dog Trial.

     This year, in addition to raising money for SPCA and Operation Santa Claus, about 800 free tickets will also be distributed to underprivileged families to uphold social responsibility.

     In addition to the performances by police dogs and Police Band, there will be guest appearances from celebrities including comedian Mr Jim Chim. Games stalls will also be set and there will be photo opportunities for the audience with police dogs.

     Tickets at $130 are now available at SPCA centres (except Mui Wo, Cheung Chau and Stanley Centres). Online booking and purchase order forms are available at the SPCA website ( Completed forms can be forwarded to the SPCA by mail.
