Our Work: Why We Work So Hard to Save These Doggies!
Adopt a Doggie is an international rescue organization. We are a group of dedicated, animal-loving individuals and we believe every dog should have a home and the chance to be loved. We rescue homeless, abused, neglected, and abandoned dogs that are living in horrible conditions and often forgotten about. We particularly work with overseas rescue groups in Taiwan, where there are millions of street dogs dying inhumanely. All of Adopt a Doggie’s dogs are placed in experienced and reputable foster homes where they are evaluated for temperament and trained to our best abilities before being available for adoption. We believe the best way to ensure a successful adoption is when we know the dog’s temperament and can then match the dog with the right family. Through our outstanding adoptions - we are able to save lives and educate people around the world on the importance of spaying and neutering pets, as well as responsible pet ownership. Please give all our doggies a chance to have a wonderful and fulfilling life by adopting one today!
Taiwan Stray Situations
Taiwan is a small island in Asia with 20 million people. Unlike most developed countries, Taiwan has a high population of unwanted street dogs which causes needless suffering and death each day. Due to cultural differences dogs are viewed as creatures without much worth and are not treated as beloved family members. Street dogs are often thought of as expendable and are never been given a chance to have a home and a loving family.

The Collared Scholar – Poway, CA – In an interview with Fox 5 news San Diego, The Collard Scholar president Megan Karnes says of the Taiwanese dogs – “To stay in our shelters would be like staying in the Hilton compared to where they are coming from.”
Dogs that are caught and sent to local government shelters are given only 12 days before they are put down. Some die humanely but most have suffered tremendously before dying. However, some dogs are rescued and brought to no-kill shelters. Unfortunately, most of these no-killed shelters are overcrowded with hundreds and even thousands of dogs, all of which are independently run by a single loving owner. These shelters do not have enough resources to take care of all of the dogs in need. Most of these dogs are locked in cages in deplorable conditions their entire lives.
We at Adopt a Doggie, extend our resources in order to help, educate and save the lives of many deserving dogs.
