Director of Leisure and Cultural Services,

When Quarry Bay Promenade Park was opened in December of 2012, there was hope that the pet zone would become a new go-to place for dogs. However, although the waterfront park has always been very popular, the pet zone has received on-going criticism for its poor planning.

The current pet zone has limited space and restricts the movement of pets. It is easy for them to bump into runners and pedestrians. We recommend relocating the park to the nearby government site and turning the existing pet zone into a harbor promenade.

Furthermore, the pet zone is on Hoi Yu Street with an exit at both ends of the park (A and B). Gateway A allows pedestrians to enter Hoi Yu Street through Java Road. However, Gateway B leads either to the promenade park, where dogs are not allowed, or to a dead end (a car park entrance at the far end of Hoi Yu Street). As a result, most pet-owners (except for drivers) enter the park through gateway A and have to take the same route back after walking their dogs, which is very time-consuming. It is also contrary to the original intention of having one-way traffic.

The gateway B is closely linked to the Quarry Bay Park in Sai Wan Ho. To facilitate the traffic of pets and their owners, we recommend that the Department construct a pet passage at the waterfront, allowing owners to walk their dogs along the promenade of Sai Wan Ho waterfront and to enter the pet zone this way.

To Director of Leisure and Cultural Services,

  1. Relocate the pet zone inside the Quarry Bay Promenade Park to the government site nearby for pedestrian ‘use.
  2. Set up a pet passage in line with the waterfront entrance at Lei King Wan in Sai Wan Ho as a direct link to the pet zone.
  3. The pet passage should not be separated by railings, but rather signs should be put up to show the directions at the waterfront and facilitate pet owners to walk their dogs through the pet zone.

本港飼養寵物的市民眾多,但政府於動物權益的政策未有與時並進,多年來未有提供足夠資源帶頭教育及推動人與動物的友善政策,未有參考外地先進國家相關的動物政策去作社區規劃、建設及配套,沒有恰當發展便利人與動物的公共生活空間,導致衝突發生,近年虐待動物事件日趨嚴重,更有人肆意毒害流浪狗隻,引起各界關注保護動物權益的問題。因此,近年民間有不少自發組織成立,向政府表達爭取動物權益的訴求,但受限於資源及人手,在政府制定相關政策過程未能具有影響力,眼見當未有細心聆聽,相反制定不利於動物的政策,如「自家繁殖豁免權」、「野豬狩獵隊」、「出售熊膽汁藥物」等等。

希望集合各方有志爭取動物友善政策的組織

有見及此,我和我的團隊希望集合各方有志爭取動物友善政策的組織,集結力量組成,在爭取動物友善政策這個議題上可以更具代表性。

長遠而言,本會希望為動物爭取更多動物友善政策,例如在不對市民構成極大不便的情況下可以使用公共交通工具,使用公共設施(例如:公園,沙灘,商場等),更希望政府可容許公屋/居屋居民飼養狗隻,令毛孩不必再擔驚受怕。
