Sally Anderson founded Hong Kong Dog Rescue (HKDR) in 2003 with the specific purpose of saving abandoned dogs and puppies from being killed by Government kennels. HKDR rehabilitates and re-homes stray dogs.

A British citizen, Sally came to Hong Kong for tourism in 1984 on a cruise from Taiwan, but has stayed in the city ever since for her love for dogs.  She has spent the better part of her 35 years supporting the local canine community.

HKDR has two centers in Hong Kong.  The older larger ones are taken care of at the main Tai Po Homing Centre, while smaller dogs await re-homing at the Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre.  Puppies usually live at the HKDR base on Lamma Island or stay in foster homes.

Education is also an important part of HKDRโ€™s mission.  HKDR organizes a variety of workshops and classes to help improve dog-human understanding and promote responsible pet ownership.
