Student Sharing:  

Today’s experience at Ping’s Pet Club was completely different from what I expected. As a regular volunteer at Dog Rescue, I realized that there are many smaller animal protection charities existing which are still developing and is of a smaller scale. It has made me realize that the owner whom decided to give up her house and time to all these dogs really is something. If more people or organizations are willing to help this charity, I believe that there will be higher chances for those dogs to find a home.

第一次去到萍姐貓狗場知道被遺棄動物的生活情況,相比在家中的寵物,牠們生活在比較窄的寵裡,最重要的是牠們被遺棄後的心情,人和動物一樣,當被主人遺棄,那種失落會一直在牠們的心中。今次的服務目的最重要未必是做一天半天義工,而是深深體會到養貓狗一生的責任,主人就是寵物的一生,所以負上了養寵物的責任就不要輕易遺棄他們。
