參選照片的小貼士

由Coco及Sparky Hotung為大家示範

當提交寵物正面照片時,請確保可以清楚看到寵物的眼睛、雙耳、下巴以及整個頭部。

照片不應

這是一張很可愛的照片,可惜我們看不見Sparky的雙眼。此外,雖然你也很上鏡,但照片中最好只有寵物。

我們看不見Coco的眼睛及耳朵。照片應該是從正面拍攝而非側面。

照片應該

這張Sparky的照片很適合,因為我們能夠看見牠的雙眼、耳朵、下巴以及整個頭部。 

這張Coco的照片有點暗,請盡量為你的寵物打燈。但我們依然能夠看到寵物的特徵,包括雙眼、雙耳、下巴及頭部。

我們很期待見到你的寵物以及閱讀牠們的故事!

Sophia, Sparky, Coco以及愛護動物協會團隊上

Tips for Your Photo

with Coco and Sparky Hotung

When submitting a front-facing photo, please make sure we can see both your pet's eyes, both their ears, their chin, and the top of their head.

What not to do

This is a cute photo, but we can't see both of Sparky's eyes. Furthermore, while we're sure you're photogenic too, a pic of only your pet is preferred.

Again, we can't see both of Coco's eyes and ears. This photo would be better if it were taken not from the side, but from the front.

What to do

This photo of Sparky works, because we can see both her eyes, ears, her chin, and the top of her head.

This photo of Coco is a little dark — so make sure the lighting shows off your pet as much as possible — but it still gives us a sense of all her features — both eyes, both ears, chin, and head.

We're very excited to see your pets and read their tales.

Love, Sophia, Sparky, Coco, and the SPCA team

關於香港愛護動物協會

香港愛護動物協會在 1921 年正式成立,是區內歷史最悠久及香港最具規模的獨立動物福利慈善機構。協會的宗旨是提倡愛護動物、保障牠們的健康及福利,以及防止動物受到虐待。我們亦致力推廣「善待動物及關愛生命」的人道教育,深信有關實踐能為個人成長及社會發展帶來莫大裨益。   
  
協會99%的營運經費來自大眾捐款,以及獸醫部及會員部的收入。縱然資源緊拙,我們多年來均不斷推出嶄新計劃,以提升本地的動物福祉,包括營運多個動物復康和領養中心,以及透過動物生育控制計劃為流浪、自由放養及有主人飼養的動物,提供價格相宜甚至免費的絕育服務。此外,愛協於香港各區共有八間固定獸醫診所,以及一所提供絕育手術服務的流動診所。除了提供診症服務外,部份診所亦設有手術治療,而動物福利車更助我們深入偏遠地區,照料所有有需要的伴侶動物。   
  
位於青衣的愛護動物協會賽馬會百周年中心是以教育及福利為主題的新設施,我們會繼續開拓更多嶄新服務。

About the SPCA (HK)

Officially registered in 1921, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Hong Kong), also known as the SPCA, is the region’s longest standing and Hong Kong’s largest independent animal welfare charity. The organisation’s mission is to promote kindness to animals, to protect their health and welfare and to prevent cruelty to animals. We also endeavour to cultivate a deep respect for life in the community through education, as we believe this will benefit personal growth and the development of our society. 

 

Despite limited resources, we continue to launch new initiatives to improve and enhance animal welfare, including managing well-run rehabilitation and rehoming centres throughout the territory where our rescued animals await adoption. We are also active in controlling animal population by operating programmes that allow owned, loosely-owned, and stray animals to be de-sexed at an affordable price or even for free. In addition, the SPCA (HK) comprises eight veterinary clinics, and a spay-neuter animal welfare vehicle which are all equipped with surgical facilities to provide care for companion animals throughout Hong Kong, especially in more remote areas. The work of the SPCA impacts over 16,000 animals annually, including supporting other animal welfare organisations along the way with rescue missions.
