Helping Our Four-legged Friends
18 alumni volunteers will visit the Tai Po Homing Centre of Hong Kong Dog Rescue to spend time with the animals living there. We will take the dogs on walks, giving them much-needed social interaction while learning more about the centre’s efforts to help abandoned pets. Afterwards, alumni will relax over a dim-sum lunch. No experience is necessary. All you need is a love of dogs and the willingness to get your hands and clothes dirty! If you are interested in joining this trip, read more details here or register online here.
