More and more dogs needing help

With the sizzling hot summer weather back for the season keeping our dogs cool and safe is a top priority, as heatstroke is a killer that takes too many pets every year.  I had a good reminder of that today when walking my dogs, because even though I stayed in the woods where the shade of the trees keeps the temperature a good few degrees lower, I ended up having to carry one of my dogs half the way back when he started panting too hard for comfort. Apart from the basic rules about staying inside during the middle of the day and having water with you at all times, remember that when the ground is hot enough to fry an egg on your dog's paws are directly in contact with that surface, and the heat that radiates from it is very close to a small dog's body. Never keep a dog on a roof without adequate shade, and even then try to avoid doing so for too long as even without direct sunlight the temperature can reach dangerous levels, and it goes without saying that dogs must never be left in cars.  
 
Due to the lack of a website and the jittery financial markets adoptions have been slower so far than in previous years, although we have seen an upturn since our website was restored.   Still, from January to May we found homes for 140 dogs and puppies which directly translates to 140 precious lives saved, and we are grateful to all of those who chose to take home one or two of our wonderful Hong Kong Dog Rescue dogs. 
 
There could be some big news coming up in the last few months of this year, but I'll keep that under my hat until we have everything confirmed.  Until then we are always in need of volunteers of all kinds, both dog walkers and those who can help with repair and maintenance at our Tai Po Homing Centre as the site has a lot of quite urgent work that needs doing.  If you can help on that front please get in touch with our Tai Po Homing Centre Manager, May Chow, at may@hongkongdogrescue.com
 
Thanks as always for your support.
