Hong Kong's SPCA

I've always wondered how the SPCA in other countries looked like, and if they are in as bad a condition as the one in Singapore (that's according to HC - luckily I have never been there).

Came across this blog's article written by a famous HongKong actor, Louis Koo. We're not a fan of his cos we hardly watch chinese movies (unless it's free-on-t.v.) , but we enjoyed reading about his dog. This time, I admired him (the actor - not the dog) for reminding the public/his fans that one should think before adopting a pet, as pet is for life. (I don't think he is paid to do this)

Most interestingly, the pictures attached showed the clean and conducive environment of their SPCA. The dogs even got their own bed! If Hong Kong can maintained such a nice environment, why can't ours? Lack of funding or government support?

(HC would like to add that she could never get lost when she visits SPCA cos she can smell the stench from far. )

However, despite the difference in the living conditions of animals in SPCA - one thing remains clear. These dogs need a permanent home and a committed owner.

For those readers who does not have a dog/pet, or those of you who are contemplating having another dog - please think twice. Like what the famous actor said - these pets are not simply a toy or product. Can you provide for them for the next 15-20 years?If the answer is "maybe" then please don't get one.

I agree with what you say here Joey. Everyone should think if they can commit first before they get any pets

wow, their SPCA really looks nice, compared to ours here (according to my M anyway)! Not that I want to live there of course.

I hope all these doggies will find a furever home soon.
