      Deliveroo Partners with the “Hong Kong Saving Cats and Dogs Association” on International Homeless Animals Day to Find Furry Friends a Forever Home!

      Whether rescued from breeding farms or abandoned by their owners, stray dogs and cats share a common wish: to find a caring owner and a happy forever home where they will be loved. In Hong Kong, according to the figures from SPCA 2019 annual review, about 5,000 animals are rescued each year but only less than 2,000 of them are adopted. With International Homeless Animals Day being on 15 August, Deliveroo will partner with the Hong Kong Saving Cats and Dogs Association (HKSCDA) to help spread awareness about the importance of supporting adoption to save lives.

      International Homeless Animals Day was created to spread awareness about pet overpopulation and has done significant work since, including saving the lives of millions of animals. To do their part to support this meaningful cause, Deliveroo will produce a variety of stickers with photos and information of the animals who are up for adoption, and have riders display them on their delivery bags between 10-23 August.

      As Deliveroo riders are a common sight on Hong Kong streets, their rider bags have ample opportunity to provide more visibility to cats and dogs in need of adoption. Deliveroo riders are eager to do their part to ensure that Hong Kong’s stray dogs and cats can find a new and loving home in the neighbourhood.


      In addition to the friendly pet faces for adoption, the stickers also include the names, genders, and personality types of each animal. Smartphone users can scan the QR code displayed on the stickers to learn more about the adoption information, or simply how to support HKSCDA via online donations. Over200 riders have registered to-date for this heartfelt charity campaign.

      Linda Tse, Chairman of HKSCDA, said, “We were delighted when Deliveroo approached us with this partnership opportunity. It is a completely new model for us to work with, and with their food delivery network throughout Hong Kong, it increases the exposure of the animals to be adopted. It will also allow more people to learn about our adoption services and convey the message of 'Support Adoption to Save Lives'. We are very pleased to have the support of Deliveroo and its riders, and hope to see more support from the public after this initiative.”

      Brian Lo, General Manager, Deliveroo Hong Kong, said, “We are honoured to partner with HKSCDA on this meaningful campaign. Just two weeks after the announcement, hundreds of riders have already shown their support, and we are so encouraged by their enthusiastic participation! As a dog and cat lover myself, I can’t wait to see how the event plays out, and to help create a better society for our lovely friends, with the help of our riders.”

      Mandy Lou, a Deliveroo walker who participated in this initiative, said, “I have a soft spot for dogs, so I raised my hand immediately when Deliveroo informed us about their plans to partner with the HKSCDA. I am a student and I work as a Deliveroo walker in Tseung Kwan O – I’m hoping my presence with the new adoption stickers will inspire my friends in the district to take action, whether it’s to adopt or just donate. Mostly, I’m just glad that Deliveroo shares the same values as me, and really puts in the effort to make these initiatives happen.”
