Carers and SPCA Cooperation

CCCP: the Process - Carers and SPCA work together for cats

REGISTERED CARERS DEVOTED TO CARING FOR CCCP CATS
  • Hundreds of cat lovers across Hong Kong have become Registered Carers with SPCA.
  • Registered carers commit hours of their time and money to feed their colonies of cats, waiting until the cats finish eating before clearing up the leftovers - literally a labour of love.
  • This bond enables them to successfully trap these cats for desexing, as well as monitor the well being of cats after their return.
Trapping cats takes planning!
  • Due to the popularity of the CCCP , registered carers book desexing appointments at the SPCA a month in advance to ensure they get their desired dates.
  • The day before the appointment, they trap and transport the cats to their nearest SPCA Centre.
  • They returning the next day to collect and release them back to the original colony area in their community.

The ultimate goal of our CCCP carers is to stop the breeding of street cats so no more cats have to live on the street.

SPCA PROVIDES FREE DESEXING AND MEDICAL CHECK UP FOR EACH CCCP STREET CAT
  • The SPCA runs a daily desexing clinic exclusively for CCCP street cats.
  • Veterinary surgeons and vet assistants desex street cats 5 days a week, 9 hours a day - for free.
  • When CCCP cats are brought in for surgery, our vets also provide a health check and preventative treatment e.g. worming, micro chipping, vaccinations, ear mite and flea treatment.
  • Friendly kittens and adults are placed in our adoption programme.
  • Those deemed not suitable for domestication are returned to their respective colonies to pick up their lives again under the watchful eye of their registered carers.
  • Street cats suffering from a serious illness or severe injury, may have to be euthanised.
