2005.02.20 Taiwan

by Carolyn (A Canadian In Taiwan)

There is a growing problem with stray dogs in Taiwan. These dogs are certainly not the problem, but those unloving and cruel people who abandon these poor creatures when they are no longer cute puppies, or are too much trouble for them to handle and feed anymore.

The government needs to look at Taiwan's problem in a proactive sense, not a retroactive sense. How do we prevent all these poor dogs from being homeless, unloved and at risk of dying on the streets? Through educating the public, and sponsoring no-kill shelters.

My husband and I, since moving to Taiwan from Canada almost six years ago, have saved one stray dog from a wire chokehold and three stray cats. They have given us soooo much love in return for their lives. God blessed us the hearts to care for animals and to take mercy on those who are at a great disadvantage. Everyday we go around the town we live in and feed as many strays (dogs and cats) as we can find. We know that these animals will have a full belly and at least a few hours of content and rest from not having to search for food.

I ask that all those reading this take a moment to contemplate the necessity of helping this problem of strays in Taiwan. Each one of you sees stray dogs/cats on a daily basis. Feed them. Talk nice to them. Appeal to your government to come up with uncruel and humane ways to deal with this problem. Open your heart and your home to a little one today. We all need love --
