ACT is the only registered charity performing animal rescue in northern Taiwan around the clock—and often in very difficult situations. As a result, we save the lives of animals who had almost no hope and give them the best life we can. Because the bulk of our expenses are in Taiwan, we are able to make funds go a lot further and help more animals in distress, meaning ACT is a great animal charity to donate to.
When a stray dog is hit by a car, an injured monkey is trapped in a tree, or a puppy is stuck in a drain, ACT goes to the rescue. If a kitten is heard crying in a dark and filthy back alley, or a neglected dog like Macy here just needs the chance of a better life, ACT won’t give up until that animal is rescued and receiving the best veterinary care available—no matter what situation or hour of day or night.
The majority of the dogs that ACT rescues are maimed by poachers’ illegal leg-hold traps and wire snares. As a result, we probably care for the largest number of amputee dogs in the world: currently 52. After they recover from surgery, our rehoming team endeavours to find loving homes for all the adoptable dogs and cats. However, not all rescued strays are adoptable, so ACT also provides lifelong, quality sanctuary care when needed. Always, we consider every dog, cat, or wild animal as an individual, which means we do the very best we can for each and every one who passes through our care.
Macy was spotted in terrible condition, both back legs buckled, her long fur matted and soaked in her own urine, malnourished, and with a lung infection. Thankfully, the sweet stray was easy to rescue, and she is now enjoying a new life free of pain and suffering and full of pampering and love.
Naturally, when you give to a charity, you want to see what your money can achieve. And there are so many good things your kindness can make happen for the animals that ACT rescues. For instance:
£5 vaccinates a recently rescued dog or cat against ten life-threatening diseases
£10 feeds a rescued dog healthy food for a month or a cat for two months
£25 pays for life-saving oral medicine for a sick animal
£50 covers half a day’s costs for our team to rescue a stray or wild animal in distress
£75 sponsors the entire monthly care for a dog or cat at one of our sanctuaries
£100 ensures a sick or injured animal gets vital blood tests and x-rays
£250 to £500 means an injured dog or cat can undergo life-saving surgery
Yes! Suffering animals like Macy must get the urgent treatment they need, and I want to donate to help make this happen.
Your donation is important, as it will help give a suffering animal in Taiwan the best chance possible of rescue, recovery and a bright, happy future.
