Hong Kong people love to keep pets, both to adjust to the heavy pressure of life, but also to have company, but also many Hong Kong people regard pets as part of the family. According to the Census and Statistics Department (2019), the proportion of households surveyed with cats and dogs was 9.4%, while the proportion of those who considered abandoning their pets whilst relocation was only about 5%, which shows that many Hong Kong people are still willing to take their pets with them. But what if a family chooses to immigrate and keep their pets? Pet immigrants come in handy at this point.
