Ms. Jia suddenly passed away on Feb. 21st and has left behind over 200 dogs that need our urgent care and attention. Lets join forces and help these animals in need!!!

Please pass this along as we need all the help we can get, many dogs are in critical conditions and the shelter needs alot of work. We need to also start finding adoptive home for these animals !!!

Animal People article

While Merritt Clifton (reporter for Animal People Magazine) came to Taiwan in January, the Taiwan SPCA took him around to visit various shelters in Taipei city and Taipei county. Based on Animal People's shelter check and points list, 5 different shelters were rated based on shelter conditions, adoption rates, state of the animals, etc. It is an important step for Taiwan to start assessing and improving shelter environments for stray animals as currently we are not yet up to international standards.
