About SPCA (Hong Kong)
The SPCA was founded in 1903 and started out as an informal animal welfare group formed by volunteers. In 1921 the association was formally incorporated and became the RSPCA before dropping the “Royal” prefix following news of the handover in 1997. The SPCA is Hong Kong’s oldest animal welfare organisation.
Our principles have remained unchanged throughout the decades:
- To promote kindness to animals,
- To protect their health and welfare,
- To prevent cruelty and through education,
- To inspire in the community a deep respect for life so that all living creatures may live together in harmony.
Our work can be divided into six areas: Animal Rescue and Cruelty Prevention, Animal Birth Control, Animal Adoption, Pet Health Promotion, Animal Welfare Education and Animal Welfare Advocacy–Lobbying for legislative and policy change.
