A family decided to devote their entire attention to providing care for as many dogs as they could in a nation that was overrun with stray animals. Mrs. Hsu’s Sanctuary is a family-run shelter in Taiwan with more than 3,000 dogs of diverse shapes, sizes, and colors. The stray animal population at the shelter has been steadily increasing since it first opened five years ago.
Then a kind person intervened and gave a sizable building that could accommodate all the dogs. To manage its population, Taiwan became the first nation to outlaw the execution of stray dogs. As a result, such shelters are now giving spaying and neutering programs more attention. The intention is to increase public awareness of the negative effects of breeding.
The shelter employs devoted builders who create affordable custom wheelchairs for puppies who require them because it has several puppies who are either limbless or paralyzed on their rear legs. When a dog with a severe enough injury shows up, it is sent to the neighborhood veterinary clinic.
A veterinarian clinic, a sizable dog grooming facility, and a cozy night room are all part of Mrs. Hsu’s Sanctuary. Cats have their own space, too. The stray animals spend the day outside in the park area where they may run about and interact with one another. Additionally, volunteers lead them on daily walks!
A volunteer at the shelter named Angel Wang enjoys spending time with each dog individually. She consequently made her best buddy. The shaggy gray dog that followed her around all day caught her attention, and the months they spent together at her shelter evolved into years. Huei Huei was finally adopted by Angel at an official ceremony!
People work around the clock to care for stray animals since there are many more dogs than there are shelter employees. Donations from locals who support their work provide them with all of their funding. Families, employees, and volunteers enjoy caring for and witnessing the happiness of these stray animals. Every effort is justified by the 3,000 smiles they see each day.
What a wonderful location with wonderful people! Make sure to follow the shelter on Facebook if you want to see more. Here is the video, too! Look at this!
