The opening of the new SPCA Jockey Club Centennial Centre in Tsing Yi represents the next milestone in the SPCA’s century-long involvement with Hong Kong’s advancement in animal welfare and pet inclusivity.

The new Centre will serve as one of the largest animal welfare and education centres in the region.

Increase the number of animals treated and rehabilitated by 50% each year
Shorten the response time of rescue calls to New Territories
Desex an additional 8,000 animals per year
Rehome an additional 1,200 animals per year

Additionally, a new immersive classroom – the first of its kind promoting animal welfare education in Hong Kong – will integrate technology with the educational experience which will leave a lasting impact on the younger generation.

With increased boarding facilities and its convenient location close to the airport, it’s never been easier to drop off your cat or dog at our Tsing Yi Centre for boarding before heading off for your travels. Rest assured that your cat or dog will benefit from the care of our devoted animal care teams and medical support during their stay. Our one-stop service can also arrange for a grooming session so that your pet is fresh and clean for their trip home.

Bespoke pet mosaics and murals, such as the one seen above, comprise some of the pet-inspired art in the new Centre. (Artists’ IG: @simplebao, @devil030 & @cynthiaomi_tattoo)
