Hong Kong Paws Foundation (HK Paws) is operated on a 100% voluntary basis by dedicated volunteers. HK Paws aims to raise awareness of animal welfare issues and to reduce the large number of dogs and cats that are abused, abandoned or destroyed everyday. Our Foundation believes that the current laws on animal welfare and their implementation are insufficient to fully protect animals in Hong Kong. We understand that for many people animal welfare is a secondary priority in our busy lives. However we feel that every member of our society has a responsibility to alleviate animal cruelty. We hope that through our work in Hong Kong we can also raise awareness of animal welfare in China.


The work of Hong Kong Paws dates back to 2005, however our Foundation was formally established and registered as an animal welfare society in March 2011.  

From early 2005 we have been working closely with local animal shelters to provide financial aid, animal care consultation and rehoming services. With a strong network of volunteers and partner organizations, we feel that HK Paws is ready to take our services to higher level and to the wider community. 

In October 2011, HK Paws has been formally endorsed as Hong Kong charity organization by Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department, our charity number is 91/11168. Donation made to us of HK$100 or over will be tax deductable.
