The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (HK)
The SPCA (HK) was formed in 1921 by a group of volunteers. Throughout the decades, the SPCA (HK) has been working for the humane treatment and protection of animals. It has fought animal abuse, and through public education, has promoted humane understanding and a community responsibility to protect and co-exist with animals. Its message continues to be that RESPECT FOR LIFE BEGINS WITH CONCERN FOR ANIMALS.
The SPCA (HK) has introduced a number of programmes to help the community to improve animal welfare. Besides finding caring owners for the stray and abandoned animals, the SPCA (HK) promotes animal birth control through various programmes that allow the owned, loosely-owned and stray animals to be desexed. The SPCA (HK) also operates eight animal clinics, several of them equipped with surgical facilities, to provide welfare for animals throughout Hong Kong.
The SPCA (HK) continues its efforts to ensure that people and all animals can co-exist in harmony.
