Frequently Asked Questions

Adoption
What are the basic requirements for dog adoption?

To start the process, you will be asked to fill in an online questionnaire for us to assess your conditions whether you would be a good fit. These include:

  • Applicant must be age 25+
  • Your residence building must be dog-friendly and have adequate space for the size of a dog
  • The dog must have its own indoor space to rest and sleep
  • The dog must not be left alone in the house for long hours
  • Your family/co-live partner are supportive and suitable with dogs
  • The other pet(s) (if there are) are suitable with dogs
How do I decide if this is the dog I want to adopt?

We offer the opportunity for a trial that can go up to 2 weeks before you decide to adopt. This is to ensure that you and the dog are the best possible match!

What is the adoption cost?

We do not make any profit out of animal rescues; dog adoption cost ranges from HKD1,500 to HKD2,500 on average to cover basic vaccinations and medical costs prior to the adoption.

What expenses are involved in fostering?

HKPAWS often cover veterinary costs, food, food bowls, leashes, litter box and toys, while you may need to provide other supplies.

Can I pick which pet I want to foster?

In many cases, when you decide to adopt a dog/cat, you may have some input or preference in selecting the specific dog/cat you want to care for. We often consider factors like your living situation, experience, and the needs of the animal when matching you with a dog/cat.

I only have a few days of holidays, can I foster?

Fostering a dog typically requires a longer time commitment than just a few days, as animals need stability and time to adjust to a new environment. If you have only a few days of holidays, it might be challenging to provide the necessary care and attention a foster pet requires. Consider other ways to support animal welfare, such as volunteering at Bow Wow Inn or cat shelter.

How long is fostering?

The duration of fostering can vary from a few weeks to several months, depending on factors like the dog/cat's needs, age, temperament, and how long it takes for the dog/cat to be rehomed. It's essential to discuss the expected duration with us before committing to a foster placement.

Can I keep the foster pet or find them a home?

We very much appreciate your willingness to help with the rehoming process of the foster dog/cat, by either spreading the words or considering adopting the dog/cat yourself! The specific arrangements can vary, so it's best to discuss your preferences and bring it forward with us as the final decision resides with HKPAWS.

What if I have questions after I get the foster pet home?

If you have questions or need support after bringing a foster pet home, we are readily available to provide guidance and assistance. We value open communications, so seek help when needed to ensure the well-being of the animal in your care.
