In response to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, we kindly ask volunteers to refrain from volunteering if you have traveled overseas in the past 14 days, and if you or a family member is experiencing flu-like symptoms.
To all the volunteers who are helping out at the Homing Centres for the dogs despite these changing times and lack of manpower for kennel work, thank you so much!
We depend on our dedicated volunteers to exercise and socialize the 600 dogs waiting in our Tai Po and Ap Lei Chau Homing Centres. We especially need help on weekdays to walk the dogs.
No experience is necessary. All you need is a love of dogs, a good sense of responsibility and the willingness to get your hands (and clothes) dirty!
You must be 18 years old or above to volunteer as a dog-walker. All dog-walking volunteers are required to attend a 3-hour orientation and subsequently serve a supervised first shift at the homing centre of their choice. An administration fee of HK$100 will be applied to each successful dog-walker application. Upon completion of the supervised first shift, you will receive a HKDR Volunteer T-shirt.
Due to the current social-distancing measures, all upcoming orientations and first shifts will be cancelled until further notice.
