I think I'll be doing this shortly... by my gf's house, there's always a dog on a short chain outside of a nearby building. The dog is always there no matter if it's the day or night and even during rain (albeit, not heavy rain, but still).

Glad I came across this thread so I know where to start.

Animal abusing is a widespread phenomena in Taiwan. One of my customers in central Taiwan told me her neighbor raise dog because he wants to abuse them. He will starve them or beat them. I live in North, but still the situation isn't better enough.

I have a diabetes dog, who needs some exercise everyday. An old lady in the neighborhood yell at me today because my dog "standing rest" on the street which happen to be in front of her house. She said she knows my dog is sick, but my sick dog doesn't make her feel good. I was so furious, and start shouting back, then her son and husband came out shouting at me.. saying I don't respect her.

This country is a humiliation.

If you're aware of such heinous animal abuse, why don't you report it?
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet.

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

First, I learnt that animal abuse 2 days ago, and I didn't know till now there is a way to report them. So my friend and I were plotting to rescue the dogs. I will be the one to beat up the owner.

I found a puppy not larger than the size of a shoe stuffed and tied in several bags and left to hang out on a scooter on WenChang street near Xinyi road (there's a dead pig lying on a cart there every morning). When I took the puppy out it was shivering horribly and looked in terrible condition from being left bagged up hanging out in the rain. I found the lady who lives in the house where the scooter is parked and asked her if it was hers and she said no and asked me if I wanted it. I said no and didn't take the puppy but I feel like maybe I should have. I've reported this case to the contact listed in this thread. Is there anything that can be done for the puppy? I'm afraid it's going to get bagged up again!

Not too long ago in a local FB cycling group, there was a post about how a cyclist saw an old lady on a scooter abandoning a little dog and got it all on video.

The video shows, her speeding off and the dog ran after her. The cyclist (probably doing 30-40kph while holding a phone recorded the whole thing. After she noticed that she was being recorded, she stopped and let the dog back onto the scooter and sped off. However, not fast enough, the cyclist sprinted up to her on his bike and recorded him asking her if she just abandoned a dog on the side of the road. She kept denying, but it was so clear that she did not intend to pick the dog back up, but only did so when she saw at the corner of her eye that someone was recording her.

It's people like this...

The post got thousands of likes and shares and everyone praised the cyclist and also was considered a beast for riding so fast and still being able to have a steady hand to record.
