Pet adoption event to be held this weekend (with photos)
     A two-day pet adoption event will be held at the Atrium, Level 1, D‧PARK, Tsuen Wan, from noon to 7pm this weekend (June 9 and 10). Admission is free.

     Jointly organised by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD), Cheung Chau Animal Care, the Hong Kong Rabbit Society, the Hong Kong Society of Herpetology Foundation, Lifelong Animal Protection Charity, the Society for Abandoned Animals and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the event seeks to encourage people to adopt abandoned or unclaimed animals and promote responsible pet ownership.

     At the event, members of the public can meet rabbits and reptiles available for adoption, view photos or videos of cats that are up for adoption, and learn more about keeping such animals. Other activities include game booths, educational exhibitions and sharing sessions. To avoid causing stress to small animals, dogs are not allowed to enter the venue.

     The AFCD encourages members of the public who are interested in keeping a pet to adopt animals through animal welfare organisations. Currently, abandoned pets or unclaimed animals with a friendly temperament and good health will be sent to partner animal welfare organisations for adoption. Free desexing operations will be offered for dogs, cats and rabbits when they are adopted.

     For details of the event, please read the attached poster or visit www.petswithlove.com.hk/en/index.html.
