Hongkong Couple in Taiwan for 3 Years Gives Feedback on Caring Animals to Society
A couple from Hongkong, Meng Yufen and Deng Yingchang who has moved to Taiwan for nearly three years likes Taiwan very much and has always wanted to contribute to this land. They served as volunteers at the Ruifang Animal Shelter before retiring and now serve at the Tamsui Animal Shelter. Not only do they enrich their life after retiring but they also contribute to society.
Meng Yufen states that she hadn't touched a dog before moving to Taiwan and just sometimes paid attention to the issues of stray cats. After settling in Taiwan four years ago, she found that the problems of stray cats and dogs are serious. Hence, she has started to join the volunteering team to serve as an animal protection volunteer. After being a volunteer, her life has got busier than before, and if she saw any information about placing pets out for adoption, she would post it on Facebook right away because puppies are at the easiest stage to be adopted. She is in a race against time every day and afraid of missing the golden period of puppies' adoption. The volunteer service over the years has brought a great benefit for Meng Yufen. Seeing those animals run, bask in the sun, and play with their companions is also great satisfaction for her. If those adorable animals can meet the owners who would love them, she will also feel happy, and it is the best news for her as a volunteer.
The Tamsui Animal Shelter states that there is always a group of volunteers from all walks of life that spares no time to take care of those animals during the holidays to increase animals' familiarity and confidence with people. The Tamsui Animal Shelter's location is near the seaside and has beautiful sceneries. It is suitable for the family to visit and go on a picnic together. Through interaction, those cute animals can get along well with humans and be socialized, and humans also understand how to protect animals. It also provides a life education for the family and improves people's self-perspectives.
