Say hello to Hong Kong’s furry friends! Over 20 Disney VoluntEARs from Hong Kong Disneyland Resort recently visited a number of dog shelters in the city’s district of Yuen Long, including House of Joy and Mercy – an organization that helps take care of abandoned, injured and sick animals regardless of their breed, age or health conditions. During the visits, our Disney VoluntEARs helped clean the animals’ living areas, walked and bathed the dogs, prepared their dinners and learned more about the hard work that goes into taking care of abandoned animals.
Ivy Tse, the shelter’s owner, shared how the center is almost full due to the increasing number of abandoned animals, which is why volunteer support is so important. “The help from Disney VoluntEARs means a lot to us. I was worried that they may get tired and struggle in the challenging environment, but they were so willing to do all the tasks one after another and worked tirelessly for four hours. I am so touched to see their love and care for the animals.”
Anna, a Facility Services cast member and a frequent Disney VoluntEAR shared, “I am so happy that we were able to organize our first activity for abandoned animals. It’s allowed us to give some care to the animals that need it the most, reminding us to adopt instead of shop.”
