Small animals always give people a very warm and comforting feeling. In Hong Kong, one in every five families is raising small animals, and the ones responsible for caring for small animals are many of the parents of young people who have bought small animals on impulse, today's green age. Because small animals can provide companionship, many people who have retired have come to enjoy raising pets at home, especially kittens and puppies.
Pets don't say that they can raise them. First of all, they need to measure whether they have a strong sense of responsibility for them. After all, they are also living things, and they can't just be recruited. In addition, the number of cats and dogs is constantly multiplying, and we must consider their future before we raise pets, including sterilization for them.
In Hong Kong, dogs five months or older must obtain a dog license for microchip identification and be vaccinated for rabies. These are available at any animal management centres under the AFCD. The application can be processed together with the licensing centre. You can also apply through a registered private veterinary clinic or the Animal Care Association. If the address of a dog or a keeper is changed, the dog owner must notify the AFCD within five days.
Before deciding to get a pet it is necessary to first ask whether your building allows tenants to raise small pets. The public housing estates only allow small family that will not cause environmental hygiene problems. However, if a tenant needs to have a service dog, such as a guide dog to assist visually impaired and hearing impaired persons, or residents have a recommendation by a doctor for a companion dog, you can apply to the Housing Authority.
You can do some research to understand the level of care and cost required to keep different pets, and decide which kind of pet to keep according to your ability.
Before bringing the animals home, you should prepare the necessary food and cleaning supplies, especially a suitable small comb, create a reasonable space for them. Put a little water and food within reach to create a feeling of relaxation and to help them adapt to their new environment as soon as possible.
