Police arrested a 19-year-old teenager yesterday who was involved in a ‘4-cats-killed’ case in Hong Kong. The case drew the public’s attention towards animal rights. Still, many people in Hong Kong would like to own a pet dog without giving serious thought to the consequences(后果).
We are concerned（关注） that some owners will drive away the pets once they have become useless. Homeless dogs and cats run here and there in the parks and streets. Many owners send their pets away for three reasons. Firstly, they have got diseases. Secondly, they are noisy and annoying（烦人）. Thirdly, they have broken the vase bought by a boyfriend. Because of these silly reasons, many pets lose their homes . More pets will be saved if we think twice before buying them.
We must pay attention to pets’ health. To have them injected(注射) with different types of vaccines(疫苗) at the correct age is necessary. You should always keep an eye on your pet. If they behave strangely, take them to an animal hospital at once. It’s dangerous for dogs to eat chocolate. Never leave your pets at home alone for a long time. Pets will show better behavior once they have developed good habits. Owners can take them to some training courses or teach them patiently at home.
Animal experts say that Hong Kong is not an ideal place for keeping pets at home. Hong Kong people are too busy and the flat spaces are limited. Above all, animals are an important part of nature. They should not be locked in cages. So, if you do not have the time and ability to keep them well, do not take them home. Please think twice before you pay.

Some students from the UK will come to our school to have a study tour. They are interested in Chinese culture. We’re looking for some volunteers to help us.
Can you introduce yourself (English ability and personality)?
Can you plan an activity about Chinese culture and explain your purpose?
If you are interested, please email us at Andrew@163.com.
