Companion Animal Federation -animal welfare: Private Shelter Care and Support

There are private shelters keeping stray companion animals in Hong Kong; but are incapable of providing them with enough daily life maintenance , basic medical care or even desex operation to stop unwanted litters.

Animals feel pain, have emotions, and they can suffer. We all have a responsibility to combat cruetly to animals where-ever we find it. CAF is missioned to help those less previleged animals with the provision of food and arrangement of veterinary care. CAF also works on veterinary science research in the notion to promote animal welfare.
