亮亮的故事 Bright story:
In December, Taiwan SPCA received a call for help. The informant said that a mentally-ill man had kept two dogs and a cat but did not provide them with food. It was reported that one dog had already died of starvation, while the remaining dog and cat were being starved.
Considering the urgency of the situation, Taiwan SPCA referred the informant to directly contact the Animal Protection Office (APO) and submit all information to them for emergency handling. Animal protection officers were dispatched, and they indeed found a dog and cat on site, both in poor condition. The two animals were immediately confiscated.
Later during follow-up investigation, we found that the two dogs and cat had been adopted by the mentally-ill man from Banqiao animal shelter. These animals were meant to live a happy life after leaving the shelter. Who would have thought that they would be put through hell and ultimately returned to the shelter again.
Due to limited space at Taiwan SPCA’s temporary shelter, we could only provide accommodation for Liang-Liang the black cat first. The rescued dog is currently being housed at Zhonghe shelter. We sincerely welcome anyone interested to visit the shelter and see if the dog can become a new family member.
Although a little tense and timid, Liang-Liang is well-behaved and friendly. He never meowed in protest or hissed at us when being transported to the vet, and stayed quiet the entire time.
Sweet Liang-Liang is currently at our adoption corner, located inside Pet Park Neihu Wende Branch. He is looking forward to greeting you with his big, bright eyes!
