I made one of my rare treks out to Central today, to the China Club to be exact where we were invited to give a talk at a Rotary Club lunch. I was happy to be able to hand over speaking duties to Cactus, our Education Manager, while I sat and enjoyed lunch and meeting a very nice group of people. Getting the word out about HKDR and what we do is vitally important and I’m happy to know that Cactus’s schedule for June is looking pretty full. We’re available for talks anywhere if you’re interested, whether it’s groups such as the Rotary Club, colleges and schools, or anywhere that has a genuine interest in our work.
We’ve been waiting for the right home for Snowball, the young Japanese spitz at our Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre. There have been a lot of enquiries but none that have been quite right – until today – for a very active youngster, however sweet. Now Snowball has gone, and that’s one more happy ending to add to the long list of satisfied customers.
Here’s another lovely happy ending, this time for a senior called Rocket, one of those cases where the dog was so depressed after having been abandoned at AFCD that I thought it was the end for her. How (happily) wrong I was and look at her now!
I don’t know how it was arranged or managed, but on Sunday what seemed to be the entire volunteer force turned up at the Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre to take all the dogs to the nearby dog park for a photo session. How many of them will be left by the 28th June when we are having a real clear-out (for the day) so the volunteers from Morgan Stanley can give the place a new coat of paint?
