There are quite a few venue options when it comes to adopting, with our Tai Po Homing Centre being by far the biggest and with the most dogs. There are always around four hundred hopefuls staying with us at any given time, so be be chosen is like winning the Mark 6 or the lottery, as you can imagine. Today's lucky winner was Kasey, who started her HKDR life as a puppy at Ap Lei Chau, before moving to Tai Po as a doglet, and then becoming an adult. She's waited a long time for this day to come, so her adoption is really a cause for celebration. Thank you to Kasey's adopters for giving her this longed-for opportunity of a real family life and home.
We knew that dachshund Gertie wouldn't have the same long wait, and she left our Kennedy Town North Street Centre today to start her new life. She's going to have a great time, I know.
Penny and Paula were very popular after featuring on a Facebook post, and there were a lot of enquiries about them. However they're now off the available puppy list as they'll be going to their new home together straight from their foster home, the best possible outcome.
As I mentioned yesterday, shy puppies Aaron and Austin weren't sent to Whiskers N Paws to sit behind a rock for two hours, but that doesn't mean that they're unhomeable. It just means that they need to be in a home with another dog, a more confident one who can teach them how to trust humans and to be able to enjoy life to the full.
