The tropical cyclone "Compasses" will begin to affect the coast of Guangdong later today (12th). The weather will deteriorate significantly with heavy rain and squally winds. The Observatory will consider issuing the No. 8 gale or storm signal later in the afternoon.
A group of citizens began to prepare for the typhoon yesterday (11th) and store enough food for their homes.
However, for animals, in addition to food, they need a safe place to temporarily shelter from wind and rain.
An animal shelter urgently launched a typhoon temporary shelter last night. I hope that people who are interested can help the shelter provide a safe place for the dogs and help them survive the typhoon.
The Dog Rescue House of the Animal Shelter posted on Facebook that because of the imminent typhoon, they need to find temporary homes for the dogs in the Tai Po shelter to help them survive the typhoon in a safer place.

Eva, a spokesman for the Dog Rescue House, said that the shelter in Tai Po is located on a mountain and most of the locations are outdoors.
In the past, typhoons caused branches and tents for dogs to fall down. Although they did not cause harm at the time, they still pose a danger.
Now that the typhoon is raging, Eva hopes to find a suitable temporary home as soon as possible to help the dog shelter from the wind and rain in a safer place.
Prioritize experienced families
There are as many as 400 dogs in the shelter, mainly large dogs.
As some of them have never lived at home and are timid, they are less suitable for temporary care. Therefore, the current shelter hopes to find a temporary home for about 130 dogs, and the type of dog will be arranged by the shelter according to the situation.
Eva said that citizens who intend to become temporary support families must be at least 18 years old and ensure that their families can provide support. Experienced families will also be preferred.
If there are other animals in the family, you need to make sure there is enough space to separate them.
She mentioned that since the typhoon is approaching, it is necessary for someone to register on the form and pick up the dogs in person at the shelter in Tai Po before 5 o'clock today.
At that time, the volunteers will provide the materials needed by the dogs, such as dog food and dog ropes, and the holding period will be about one week.
Eva also urges dog owners, especially those who are accustomed to keeping their dogs outdoors, to allow them to enter the house or take shelter in a safe place during typhoon or rainy days.
Because the wind will threaten their safety, the sound of wind and rain will also frighten them.
