Team for Animal in Lantau South (TAILS) is a non-profit organization that depends on the dedication and passion of volunteers and the kindness and generosity of donors and sponsors to continue working toward a world in which animal welfare is the norm, not the exception.
At TAILS we believe that each and every animal has a right to the five freedoms of animal welfare:
Freedom from hunger and thirst
Freedom from discomfort
Freedom from preventable pain, injury or disease
Freedom to express normal behaviour
Freedom from fear and distress
For this purpose, we offer education to encourage responsible animal handling and care, and provide medical attention, protection and nurture to animals in need, who have often been abandoned, neglected and abused. We are committed to de-sexing (spay/neuter) which aids in reducing the numbers of unwanted animals and their unnecessary suffering. Beyond animal rescue, TAILS further provides talks on animal welfare and behaviour.
TAILS is exempt from needing to hold an Animal Trader License as per Regulation 5A(1) of Cap. 139B Public Health (Animals and Birds) (Trading and Breeding) Regulations with exemption number IND-00098.
