A Centenary Worth Celebrating


There is a lot of bally hoo  at the moment about the 100th anniversary of a certain organisation, but we won't talk about that.  Meanshile there is a local centenary which many Hongkongers may perhaps consider more worthy of celebration.

Three times in my life I have found stray animals and handed them in to the SPCA - a rabbit roaming in, of all places, the Academy of Performing Arts garden; a puppy unable to escape from a concrete drainage channel in Jardine's Lookout; and a desperately sick kitten, its eyes two pools of pus, dumped in an alley in Kowloon Tong.  Without the SPCA, life for these, and many thousands more lost, sick and abandoned animals every year, would be immeasurably worse.  Their valuable work costs money - why not become a member and give them your support?
