Transforming the lives of Taiwan's suffering animals

Your kindness can transform the life of a suffering Taiwan stray

The ACT team work tirelessly to rescue suffering animals around the clock, get them the emergency medical treatment they need, provide them with quality care, and find them the very best loving homes—just like we did for Baboon, here, found at the side of a quiet mountain road in a terrible condition.

And it’s only possible thanks to the kindness of people like you who give what you can to ensure this vital work can continue, day in, day out, 365 days a year. Please help the next stray like Baboon get the lifesaving help they need and deserve.

You may be a suffering stray's only hope

Round-the-clock Animal Rescue

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 from inside a wall down a filthy back alley, or a neglected dog like Baboon here needs expensive emergency treatment, 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.

Transforming Animals' Lives

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 each dog, cat, or wild animal as an important individual, which means we do the very best we can for each and every one who passes through our care.

Baboon was spotted by a kind passerby lying in the rain at the side of a quiet mountain road, his skin missing from his muzzle and legs, his nails extremely overgrown, and so weak he was unable to stand. The kind man who found Baboon put his own umbrella over the stricken dog and waited with him for several hours until our rescue team arrived after a long journey Thankfully, the sweet Baboon was easy to rescue and care for, and he is now enjoying a new life free of pain and suffering—and full of pampering and love.
