Everlasting Love – Photography exhibition at New Taipei City Pet Education Campus

【New Taipei City】New Taipei City Government Animal Protection and Health Inspection Office worked with Taiwan Animal Protection Monitor Network for “Everlasting Love” – photography exhibition at the New Taipei Pet Education Campus to promote the care for and adoption of old and disabled animals. The photos and stories of old and disabled animals adopted from 8 animal shelters of New Taipei City and their 6 owners were displayed at the exhibition as an attempt to focus public attention on the love for these old and disabled animals and, thus, encourage more people to visit the shelters and adopt these animals that are in need of our love.
The Office added additional areas in the campus, such as food DIY area, beauty spa, display and hands-on area, multimedia classroom and VR interaction area, in addition to the original sheltering space and worked together with several schools and organizations to organize pet life education programs and build the “Smart life education campus.” Today (Jul 30), the “Everlasting Love” photography exhibition is a subsequent event after the publication of the book “Post the end of Animal Slaughter Act-EVERLASTING LOVE” by the Taiwan Administrative Alliance for Animal Protection that showcases the touching stories of 6 pet animals that were adopted from the animal shelters of New Taipei City. Along with the exhibition, there were a series of activities, such as old dog care workshop and how to prepare fresh food for your loved pets, showing pet owners how to take care of their old and disabled pets and develop the ideas of their pets’ daily care.
In the book “Post the end of Animal Slaughter Act-EVERLASTING LOVE,” there is a Chihuahua “Doudou” which was once abandoned and became a stray dog. He was very easily intimidated possibly because of previous terrible experiences, as a loud noise or sudden hand gesture would make him shiver violently, and that’s why Xiaojuan, a shelter volunteer worker, named him “Doudou,” meaning shivering literally. Xiaojuan, a Chihuahua lover, has been a volunteer worker at Banqiao Animal Shelter for 6 years and seen her fair share of dramas. She could not bear watching the timid Doudou get scared and shiver because other dogs were barking at the shelter and, therefore, was determined to find him a home. Like every volunteer worker at Banqiao Animal Shelter, Xiaojuan works every hard every day trying to find a suitable home for every sheltered animal, hoping one day the animals that have been staying in shelters or are old or disabled will go to a loving family and regain their smiles.
The Office said that this exhibition is just a simple effort to raise public attention that these old and disabled animals need our attention and love and encourage people to learn how beautiful and happy they are. Old dogs are mentally mature, sterilized and vaccinated. They are suitably socialized and ready for a loving family to change their fates with a little bit of love. Let’s help these old and disabled animals find a family that will love them to the very end and give them nothing but good memories. We need to reach out and pass on this everlasting love.
