Dogs on the Mid-Levels Escalator

We usually post on very light-hearted subjects here at Sassy, but we also very much feel part of the Hong Kong community and often want to draw attention to more serious issues. There was a very bad accident on the Mid-Levels escalator yesterday where a dog was severely injured due to its paw becoming trapped. We would really like to remind everyone who uses the escalator (tens of thousands each day) to please always carry your dogs, or to take the stairs if you have a big dog. Make sure that if someone else is caring for your dog during the day, they also know to do this.

One of our favourite Sassy charities is the Hong Kong Dog Rescue, who do wonderful work to care for and re-home abandoned dogs in Hong Kong. They will be holding an Dog Adoption Day this Sunday from 12-6pm at Little Princess, at 1-2 St. Stephen's Lane in Mid-Levels.

If you are not able to adopt a dog, then please take a look at the Hong Kong Dog Rescue website for other ways you can help and get involved!

  1. I believe everything published made a great deal of sense.
    But, consider this, what if you added a little content?
    I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added a headline to maybe get people's attention?

    I mean "Dogs on the Mid-Levels Escalator" is a little boring.
    You might look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about what you've
    got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
