Be one of us with our advocacy to promote responsible cat ownership.
Hong Kong Alley Cat Watch is an organization founded and funded by cat lovers out there. The goal is simply not to be on watch of stray cats roaming the streets, but also ensure that they are not posing any danger to the society.
Cats As Important Part of the Society
Cats are known to be good pets. Their kind is considered to be one of the most common species found in a household. They could be really low-maintenance at times which is good especially for owners who are always engaged with work and other extra-curricular activities. If trained right, they could just be left behind to fend on their own.
This is why cats are so lovable creatures. In fact, tracing the history back to the ancient Egypt, cats are not just well-loved, but are treated highly as well. Their well-being is prioritized, being placed above all material things in the world – even human lives. Cats have been depicted as Gods, and to kill one is punishable by death.
This is why, it’s extremely saddening how people turned from regarding cats highly to being the ones to push their execution. The main reason? Their growing number which is now considered as a menace to the society; the demand for them to be a special ingredient to some delicacies; and their ability to multiply fast.
But is this really the best action plan?
Hong Kong Alley Cat Watch is an organization that helps in rescuing stray cats and finding them the right home. We are composed of individuals who are cat lovers and animal right advocates. We don’t believe in killing them. We believe in nurturing them through responsible “cat parenting” and controlled cat breeding.
Hong Kong Alley Cat Watch houses newly saved cats at their facility in Madison, WI. We have a comfortable housing there where cats could roam around freely and receive the care they deserve. Our garage door in Madison, WI are made with the highest quality of insulation that helps in providing the right temperature for the shelter. Plus, we have volunteer workers who come everyday on a shifting schedule just to ensure that nothing about the health of the cats are compromised.
In our facility, we also have an in-house vet that monitors the cats’ activities. We help them integrate in the group especially those who have exhibited trauma due to the abuse they experienced from their past owners. We treat wounds, and other diseases and nurse them back to good health.
How do we manage?
Simple. We are not alone. Since the founding of Hong Kong Alley Cat Watch, we have been receiving generous sponsorships, donations, and aid during our most difficult time. This is what kept us afloat – what gave us hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. At the end of the day, the labor is worth it. We get to see our beloved cats have their homes, and homes have another lively spirit to make it whole.
