Animal Friends Community Animal Desexing 2022
In 2022, we desexed a total of 1,032 cats and dogs, with over 700 females. This achievement was not easy, and we thank the clinics, medical staff, volunteers, and donors who supported us. Animal Friends remains dedicated to desexing to solve the problem of stray animals at the source. We have been desexing cats and dogs in the villages and communities for over 10 years, with over 16,500 animals desexed. We hope to see more cats and dogs in these areas neutered and well-treated in the coming year. Thank you for supporting our efforts to desex cats and dogs in the villages. "Desex to reduce abandonment!"
為從源頭解決流浪動物問題，動物朋友一直堅持為倉地和村落的貓狗絕育，自2010年成立至今，已為 18,000+ 隻貓狗提供免費絕育，避免數以十萬計的流浪動物被遺棄和人道毁滅，也改善了小動物的待遇和福利。
Animal Friends is a Hong Kong charity committed to neutering cats and dogs in villages and communities to prevent abandonment and improve animal welfare. We have provided free neutering to over 18,000 animals since 2010, relying solely on public donations for funding. Join us in reducing animal suffering.
在動物福利而言亦是更有成本效益。為一隻動物絕育的成本平均$1000-＄2000， 相比生育後為後代尋找領養所花費的金錢和時間，或在收容所生活一輩子，更大為化算， 資源更有效地運用。
所以， 如果閣下有放養/流浪的貓狗， 請多行一步，盡早安排絕育。
Why does Animal Friends offer Free Neutering?
The cost of neutering ranges from $1,000 to $3,000, which not everyone can afford. Stray cats and dogs in villages and communities are often numerous, and not neutering them will only worsen the problem, leading to neglect, hunger, accidents, and even death. Encouraging feeders to bring their cats and dogs to clinics for free neutering can improve animal health and prevent thousands of unwanted births. If you have stray cats and dogs, please take the extra step to neuter them. Spread the message and donate to Animal Friends if you support neutering. Thank you!"

至今(2023）已為超過18,000隻貓狗絕育，當中75%為雌性， 若以每年生產10小貓小狗計算，已成功避免了幾十萬多個小生命誕生, 減少悲劇的延續。
Mission in Action
Since 2010, we have been educating and persuading pet owners in northwest New Territories villages and communities to neuter their cats and dogs.
Since 2010, we have neutered over 18,000 cats and dogs, 75% of which were females. This has prevented hundreds of thousands of unwanted births, reducing tragic outcomes.
We instill in animal owners the correct ways to care for their cats and dogs, so that the animals' lives are treated with dignity and their suffering is reduced.
Hong Kong Semi-stray Animals
In the villages and communities of the New Territories, merchants and villagers keep cats and dogs to control rodents and guard their homes, allowing them to roam freely, a practice known as 'free-roaming.'
However, most of these animals receive inadequate care, eating cold leftovers and drinking from mossy water dishes. They scavenge for food in garbage dumps, and if tied up or trapped, they may go hungry for life.
Due to a lack of awareness or financial constraints, owners do not neuter their animals, leading to continuous breeding and the suffering of innocent lives. These animals face hunger, illness, injury, abandonment, and death, trapped in a cycle of tragedy.
Some are given away to unsuitable owners, perpetuating the cycle and subjecting more lives to misfortune.
貓狗約5個月大時已可絕育，絕育除了是最有效和人道方法去控制動物數目外，對動物健康和社區也有不少好處。Cats and dogs can be neutered at around 5 months old. Neutering is the most effective and humane way to control animal populations, and it also has many benefits for animal health and the community."
雌性貓狗絕育後再沒有發情和懷孕時引起的不安, 也減低罹患生殖器官疾病的機會, 身體會更強壯。雄性貓狗絕育後更專心看門口, 不會出外流連、打交, 減少受傷的機會， 對社區做成的滋擾亦相應減少。Neutering reduces anxiety and reproductive disease in female pets and makes them physically stronger. Neutered male pets are more focused on guarding their homes and less likely to roam or fight, reducing injuries and community disturbances.
<< 狗狗繁殖無止的原因 >>
雌狗6個月大已可生小狗，每年生兩次，每次 6 - 10 隻。
<< The Endless Cycle of Dog Breeding >>
These are all familiar stories, have you encountered them?
Female dogs can give birth at 6 months old, twice a year, with 6-10 puppies each time.
To reduce the number of stray animals, please have your dogs neutered."
Despite being a small international city, Hong Kong has many villages and communities in the northwest New Territories where most cats and dogs are not pets and become stray animals due to lack of protection and care.
