How We Give Back

Hong Kong Animal Adoption Centre (HKACC) rely on donations. In Hong Kong over 10,000 animals are abandoned annually and often the excuse is that the animal is too old, or too ill. For those that have little chance of adoption, sponsorship is a way to help cover their medical expenses. On a monthly basis, we sponsor two dogs, Natasha, a 10 year old one eyed Golden Retriever and Maggie, a one eyed Shitsu. Over the years we’ve sponsored others who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We have been sponsoring dogs with special needs since 2013.

The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust do an amazing job raising orphaned elephants and nurturing them back into the wild. We previously fostered Ithumbah, a sweet girl who has re-integrated into the wild and living with ex-orphans and Ashaka, who unfortunately didn’t make it through the trauma of being orphaned. We now foster Mbegu, a matriach in the making, this girl was orphaned due to a human and elephant conflict, and Quanza, a timid girl who witnessed her mother and 2 sisters being killed by poachers for their tusks. Sadly many elephants are orphaned due to the cruelty of poaching – all to fuel the ivory trade in China and other parts of Asia. We have been fostering elephants since 2013.

Kirsten’s Zoo Limited is a non profit, volunteer run animal rescue organisation. They provide safe shelter and medical care to abandoned, surrendered, neglected and often abused animals.

They place the rescued animals in foster homes until they are adopted. We maintain their website and support them with the technical aspects of running a website.
