Swimming Pool for Dogs
Dog for a swim
The dog swimming pool was originally a rehabilitation centre for drug addicts. Now Sai Kung New Being Oasis is a popular place for Sai Kung’s pet friendly community at large to take their furry friends for a swim. On weekends when Sai Kung is a real dog walker’s hotspot, it can get busy.
The current director-general, Brother Fung Duxin, was inspired by God’s gospel to overcome his battle with drugs. When he quit, he formed the gospel detoxification ministry, a Christian Fellowship. The non-profit has been around for 30 years and continues to reach out to drug addicts. Dogs can be a great asset in this process: their companionship provides unconditional comradery, teaches responsibility, ensures exercise, and relieves stress.
