Saving Taiwan's Suffering Stray & Wild Animals

ACT provides 24-hour emergency response and urgent veterinary attention to stricken stray and wild animals all over Taiwan—thanks only to the kindness of people like you who ensure these suffering animals can have the best chance possible of having their lives transformed.

Recurring donations change lives—again and again

Every donation ACT receives is greatly appreciated and put to immediate good use for the animals. Recurring donations help make our animal-rescue work more sustainable and enable us to spend less time finding funds and more time saving lives.

6 Easy Ways to Help Strays in Taiwan


Whether you have time, energy, skills, or knowledge to share, ACT would love to put you to good use for the animals.


Not in a position to commit to adopting? No problem! Temporarily fostering a dog or cat can be incredibly rewarding.

Fundraise—COMING SOON!

You can soon raise funds for ACT through peer-to-peer or team fundraising—just like crowdfunding but with more of the money going directly to the animals.


If you're in Taiwan and looking to adopt, we probably have the perfect dog or cat for you!

Very sick or badly injured stray or wild animals in Taiwan rely on the kindness of people like you to be saved.

Please don’t look away.
She needs you.

This is a typical rescue for ACT: a stray dog who has fallen victim to one of the millions of illegal wire snares that plague the Taiwan countryside. We care for more amputee dogs than any other charity we know of: 53 and counting. We can only save them with your kind support. Really. Please help us save these poor innocent strays from this horrific cruelty. If your dog was in a dire situation like this, wouldn't you want them to be saved?

We can judge the heart of a person by their treatment of animals

ACT rescues hundreds of stray dogs and cats and wild animals from horrific cruelty at the hands of people who know better—around a quarter of our sanctuary dogs have lost at least one limb to cruel trapping devices that are illegal, yet we must keep pushing authorities to stop them. Our teams work tirelessly to catch and identify the perpetrators so that they can finally be put out of business.

We will never give up acting on behalf of the animals who need us—because kindness and compassion are what make the world a better place for us all. It’s a tough battle, but one we can win when good people stand behind us. Wherever you are, you can pledge to take action to improve the lives of suffering animals.
