The Pets Central Animal Welfare Foundation has been a Hong Kong registered charity since 2007. It is dedicated to promoting the welfare of companion animals and the educational benefits pets have on children and their parents. The Foundation works and supports with major animal welfare groups that are not registered charities.

The Foundation’s focus is Hong Kong and Greater China. PCAWF achieves this goal by working directly through its network of highly qualified veterinarians, launching and funding innovative programs that educate people on the importance of pet parenting and animal welfare. Dr. Pauline Taylor, a co-founder of the Pets Central veterinary network and PCAWF, is the former Executive Director of the Hong Kong SPCA and has led many animal welfare initiatives.

The Foundation will support best practices in pet parenting and animal welfare that have proven successful in North America and Europe but have not yet been implemented in Greater China. These may include educational audio-visual programs for parents and children, disseminating and publicizing the growing body of research on the benefits to children who grow up with pets, programs for abused animals, animal adoption initiatives, and emergency relief in the event of man-made and natural disasters. The PCAWF works to complement other Hong Kong-based animal charities and collaborates wherever possible with all those who seek to foster and promote animal welfare in Greater China and around the world.

We just love this interview with Narelle Pamuk, the founder of Sai Kung Stray Friends.

As Narelle explains, the facility now serves all of Hong Kong, far and beyond Sai Kung, catering to between 100 and 130 dogs on any given day.

“All the dogs in our shelter are available for adoption,” Narelle notes. “And you are guaranteed when you adopt from Sai Kung Stray Friends that you are going to get a healthy dog, a dog that’s socialized. We are there for the adopter, not just the day you adopt the dog but going forward.”

Construction workers this week brought in a black tong gau mixed-breed dog to our Pets Central Sai Kung hospital. Unfortunately, the dog has deep wounds that became infected with maggots. This is not unusual in cases of severe neglect.

We named him Blackjack. ❤ The workers couldn’t afford to cover his treatment, so the Pets Central Animal Welfare Foundation has taken on his case, and is treating the dog for Sai Kung Stray Friends.

This is Linda. She is a stray dog who helps protect her village from wild boars. One night, she was attacked by a wild boar.

The village residents tried to help her but she ran away. After a few days, they finally caught her (Tuesday, 1 August 2017), with her wound already being eaten by maggots.
