The three new dogs were picked up from AFCD Sheung Shui in the morning and taken straight to Concordia Pet Care for a check-up and vaccination, and for Ava, the six year-old pom, it was just in time as she was found to have pyometra. This is a life-threatening condition which would almost inevitably result in death if not treated, and that means surgically removing the infected uterus. Thank goodness we got her out in time, and especially as she had already had to wait until after the weekend.
The other two dogs, both small-sized poodles, are healthy enough given their seven years, and they're now at our Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre. They will still need to have their teeth sorted out and one of them, Mia, seems to have some mange, but these are all things which can easily be dealt with.
During COVID-19, we continue to remain open at both of our Homing Centres every day as usual as the dogs need looking after and to be available for adoption. However we are asking that only those who have already completed the adoption questionnaire and received an invitation to visit come to meet the dogs. The questionnaire is at www.hongkongdogrescue.com/adopt/adoption-questionnaire/
We are also really in need of already-registered volunteers at our big Tai Po Homing Centre where there are literally hundreds of dogs needing to be fed, watered and walked, as well as all of the other things that have to be done every day. If you are a volunteer and currently have time to help out, PLEASE do come.
