Can you find all 103 hidden elements in

Where's Wags?

 

In early 2024, with the help of the Pangolin Society funding, Sophia agreed to the SPCA’s commission of a pet-inclusive painting for the new SPCA Jockey Club Centennial Centre in Tsing Yi. 


For many years, the SPCA has been working towards building a pet-inclusive Hong Kong by collaborating with the LCSD on pet-inclusive design, helping with staff training, and developing programmes such as Bring Your Dog to Work. 


The ‘Where’s Wags?’ painting depicts a fun, pet-inclusive utopia in Hong Kong. 


We hope that one day, pets in Hong Kong can enjoy a truly pet-inclusive community and have better access to public transportation, housing, restaurants, and essential services, and in turn increase adoption rates. 


We hope visitors to the new SPCA Centre will enjoy spotting the 103 elements embedded in the painting, including the SPCA's comprehensive animal welfare services. The 103 elements are designed to celebrate the SPCA's 103rd anniversary of its founding in Hong Kong.

About the project

Sophia Hotung and the SPCA are launching a series of fundraising projects including Where's Wags? to raise awareness on the benefits of having a companion animal — best through adoption — in addition to celebrating the opening of the new SPCA Jockey Club Centennial Centre in Tsing Yi, and raise funds for the daily and medical expenses of their rescue animals.

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 new SPCA Jockey Club Centennial Centre in Tsing Yi focuses on education and animal welfare which will allow us to diversify and better support existing services.
