The 108 Respect Life and Anti-Animal Abuse March was successfully concluded with much better response than anticipated. We set a new record of number of participants in the local history of fighting for animal rights. The 108 Action Group is truly overjoyed by the turnout. It is now proven that Hong Kong people are compassionate and long for justice. We would like to thank Hon Wong Kwok Hing, Hon James To, Hon Kwok Ka Ki, Hon Choy So Yuk, Mr. Chan Siu Tong, Miss Rashidah Mottee and Miss Lee San San for taking part in the event.
We are grateful for the assistance provided by the Hong Kong St John Ambulance and the police.
We also want to thank Dr. Grace Li for taking up the task as our volunteer veterinary surgeon. Special thanks to all members of the media whose reports on our event have attracted much attention and aroused discussion in the community.
All the selfless and hard working volunteers are certainly not forgotten. We thank you for upholding your faith in protecting life and equal treatment at the march. You have truly made a difference and all your efforts are much appreciated.
Last but not least, we would like to thank all the 5000 participants and more than 1000 animals who have joined us on 8 Jan 2006. Your courtesy and spirit of mutual help led to an orderly event. Your tolerance with the police decision to change the exit route made the march a great success. Your contribution shows that Hong Kong is indeed a civilized city.
Sylvia and Chop Chop may seem like any other kittens today, but they went through a lot of suffering and torture a few months ago. They, however, never gave up on themselves and, on the contrary, struggled to stay alive. Their experience gives us the opportunity to reflect on ourselves.
There are countless animals in Hong Kong that are suffering from starvation and sickness. Many of them die unnoticed. Their lives reveal certain facts of the city we are living in. Their homelessness represents our indifference. We urge you to show more concern over the lives around you. The help you render to cats, dogs, rabbits, birds or other human beings will eventually make you a better person.
We could not have made the 108 Respect Life and Anti-Animal Abuse March a success without your participation and contribution. We look forward to receiving positive response from the government. Only with updated and improved animal protection laws can we offer the helpless and voiceless a chance to better lives. We hope our Chief Executive will extend his love from his own fish to all the sheltered or homeless animals in Hong Kong so as to promote harmonious co-existence between humans and animals.
The march is over but we are only at the starting point of a very long journey to protect life. Many lives still await our help. Many misunderstandings remain unresolved. Our children need us to create a compassionate and civilized environment which is conducive to their healthy growth. We believe that you will all continue to work with us so that our society will be more just, warm, loving, compassionate. Only then will Hong Kong deserve to be an international city.

Our Signature Campaign
ended on 31 Oct 2005. Please stay tuned for upcoming news and progress.
*** HELP NEEDED *** Sylvia and ChopChop have to go back to clinic every 3 days to 7 days to have their bandages changed. Sylvia will also need another surgery to take the bone pins out, so we are unsure how much the final bill will be until they fully recover.
After the first surgeries, the medical expenses for Sylvia and ChopChop have already exceeded $HK15,000.

Toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by a coccidian parasite called Toxoplasma gondii. The media often mentions the risk of humans (in particular pregnant women) acquiring this disease from contact with cats. When we examine the known facts on transmission of this parasite we can learn that it is wrong to imply cats are a major source of infection and that cat owners have little to fear from their pets!

Headline: Cat abuser in Mongkok brutalizing small kittens
A cat abuser has allegedly been breaking the limbs of small kittens in the streets of Mongkok. Three similar cases have occurred in the past year but we are not sure if one single person is responsible for the acts. SPCA urges the public to notify them or the police in case of any cruelty against animals is identified or suspected.
According to Miss Mui, who feeds stray cats in the area, she found a 4-month-old kitten in a back alley near Sai Yeung Choy Street and Nullah Road. “When I found her, her left forearm and right leg were already broken. She was limping around ….,” said the lady. The vet also confirmed that trauma was caused to the kitten’s spine. Fearing that the SPCA would destroy the kitten, Miss Mui is appealing to others in the community to save the kitten.
