You can understand that once an animals goes into the "system", it's almost virtually impossible for them to come out alive.
The AFCD are working hard to improve their image with the recent you-tube video showing inspectors rounding up two dogs. In order to improve their public image, they want to increase their rehoming numbers. In doing this, this puts a lot of pressure on the 11 animal welfare groups that are only authorised to take out animals.
It's amazing to me the amount of animals who are saved and the ones who were marked down unsuitable for rehoming are given another chance and are living happy lives. Hopefully HK will sort itself out soon, space is a luxury and you need space for animals. It's not rocket science, why would you want to allow breeders to come to HK is beyond me, but then that is just my personal view, but we are the ones who have seen the hundreds of animals killed each year and have seen their faces and horror in their eyes as their fate is sealed once they are rounded up. This is the reality of it all.
