Activity Guide for the Furry Friends

Tsuen Wan Park Pet Garden is not the largest but it's spacious. The oval-shaped garden is geared with double safety gate, where owners can let their dogs run freely and watch out for them while sitting down. Convenience is another advantage of it. Located at the Tai Ho Road entrance of Tsuen Wan Park, it is easily accessible by taxi with a stop at the nearby Tsuen Wan West MTR Station. The opening hours is from 7am to 11pm daily. It's also equipped with pet latrines, pet excrete collection bins, drinking fountain and benches with rain shelters.

A New Year's Dream

Gung hay fat choy! My name is Celine, as a child actress I have worked with animals in many TV drama series, and I always fell in love with them! My New Year’s wish is to help stray, injured or sick animals find a loving home! Will you support my wish? These unfortunate animals cannot speak for themselves to ask for help, so I am asking on their behalf, please give a red packet to help brighten their lives!




Help Us Improve “Dog Accessibility” in Hong Kong: By Monitoring Dog Access Policy Consultations in Your Community

Let's work hand in hand to make Hong Kong a truly dog-friendly city! The SPCA recognises that dogs are our faithful companions and this strong relationship should not be broken by facilities and management companies that follow a “no dogs allowed" policy.

In mid-2015, we visited the West Kowloon Cultural District and met with its management to share our views towards dog access in their Pet Zone and the Nursery Park. We really appreciate their forward-thinking attitude that allows dogs in both these zones, with the proviso they are kept on-leash in the Nursery Park.

We also attended a series of public consultations, sharing our views on how dogs can interact politely with other citizens while accompanying their owners in public facilities such as the new harbour front extending from Wan Chai North to North Point, and the boardwalk underneath the Island Eastern Corridor.

We are working hard to share our views with different stakeholders hoping to convince them to make their facilities more “dog-inclusive”. If you know of any up-coming policy consultations concerning the welfare of dogs, please let us know by emailing to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our animal welfare magazine Pawprint #102 is out now. In the cover story we expose the damages caused by "mercy release" activities, illustrating with our inspectors' recent rescues of hundreds of poor terrapins followed by medical treatments and rehoming efforts provided by different teams. Other interesting reads include our vet's tips for hiking with dogs, the Society's support for a full ban of ivory trading in Hong Kong, as well as engaging interviews with our volunteer physiotherapist, grooming supervisor, kennel keeper and new vet in the house! Captain, the single-eyed mongrel who'd suffered a lot before rescued by us, has found a loving home and you can read about his new life. Besides, there are lots of promotions and sweet discounts for members, go find out the details!

To help us save both the animals and the environment, shoot us an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
