Keeping or ruining them?
Still, many selfish people in Hong Kong are making use of cats' and dogs' instincts to serve their own needs e.g. pest control and guarding properties. Sadly, these innocent lives receive no care nor basic treatment in return.
Some people claiming themselves as "experienced dog/cat owners" but having no basic concept of animal welfare at all.
Their animals suffer both physically and mentally, some may even die painfully. Disgraceful keepers usually have no pity or regrets about them.
Animals are being kept without proper food, medical care, shelter nor freedom. So, " keeping" or " ruining"?
Keepers feed the animals with dirty and already turned bad left-over food from their own plate/lunch box or collect from the restaurants. When the food supply is barely enough to share among the pack,
the animals will have to dig in the rubbish dips to look for other food.
Being chained-up or locked-up for 7/24 365days a year in order to guard the properties without enough food and clean water. Their duty position will be replaced by another dog soon after they die.
Breed and breed
The number of animals multiplied quickly if the keeper refuses to desex the animals. Animals are mistreated, abandoned or given to "anyone" without considering animals' welfare.
Zero medical care
Keepers do not want to take responsibility when the animals fall ill or injured, even caused by neglect.
They are just a toy
小貓小狗細細隻好可愛，有些人會貪得意飼養，但從沒有打算負起對生命的責任。 Young pups and kittens are small and adorable. They are not "just" a toy but many people seem to ignore the responsibility when taking them in.
No shelter in the industrial lands to protect the animals from sun, rain and storm
村民、貨倉、車場會搬走/ 結業/ 被收地 - 人去樓空，留下一堆又一堆無辜的貓貓狗狗。
When the villagers or buiness close down/land being taken back or any reason, keepers leave but leave the innocent animals behind.
Stop and Think
keep an animal only if you can afford
Keep an cat/dog only if you are able to take up the responsiblily, provide food/medical care and permanent home for it's whole life.
