Guide Dog Puppies Seek Foster Families

Hong Kong Guide Dogs Association (HKGDA) is calling on the people of Hong Kong to apply for the ultimate job… Raising Guide Dog puppies!

Several puppies will be needing temporary homes with people who are willing to care for them in the early stages of their very important career.

With the support of HKGDA’s highly trained staff, volunteer puppy raisers will help the young pups socialize until they are about 12 – 14 months of age. While living with the foster family, these pups will be house trained and learn how to walk correctly on a leash. While also providing the young pups with a wide range of social experiences they are likely to encounter during training and subsequent work as a Guide Dog. Socialization includes visiting shopping areas, train stations and city centers (like Mongkok, Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay) so that they can become accustomed to everyday life.

HKGDA covers all veterinary and food costs.

導盲幼犬尋找寄養家庭

香港導盲犬協會現正尋找香港熱心家庭進行特別任務 – 就是“湊大一隻導盲犬BB!”

幾頭導盲幼犬將會到港,現尋求願意照顧牠們在職業生涯中最重要的頭一年 – 寄養家庭。

協會會安排一名在澳洲接受過專業訓練的寄養家庭督導員去協助寄養家庭的義工,為導盲幼犬作一些社會化訓練,直至幼犬12至14個月大。在幼犬與寄養家庭間期,牠們要學懂在家及外出時應有的行為及態度。寄養家庭亦需要給予不同環境和事物予導盲幼犬去經歷及接觸,令牠們能有資格成為真正的導盲犬。社會化訓練包括但不限於:到商場,乘坐交通工具及到繁忙的區域(如旺角、尖沙咀及銅鑼灣)等,這些訓練都能令牠們習慣香港人的日常生活。

協會將會承擔大部份費用(如醫療費及食物等)。
