Sanchong ‘Shelter’ Finally on the Mayor’s Radar!
Remember the Sanchong animal shelter outside Taipei, where PETA Asia-Pacific found suffering dogs kept in horrific conditions? Well, thanks to all your calls and e-mails, the city’s mayor is going to meet with PETA Asia-Pacific. He wants to discuss reforms like fixing the shelter’s floor and developing SOPs for caring for the sick and injured animals. But we want more—much, much more—and we need your help!
Conditions at the shelter are so bad that redoing the concrete floor and putting up a tarp to help keep out torrential rain isn’t going to do it. So long as the same lazy louts are still in charge—people who stand around joking while dogs convulse at their feet—we’d like the place to be closed down and the money to be used to move strays straight from the street into veterinary care. Please tell Sanchong to use the shelter for something else, to reassign the callous workers, and to send dogs straight to the vet for treatment or euthanasia if they are pain.
PETA Asia-Pacific’s Coco and local volunteers held a great demo (see below).
