Life May Fade Away, but Love Will Stay the Same

Life May Fade Away, but Love Will Stay the Same—
A Donation in the Name of a Beloved One Pays the Love Forward Far Across the Sea

Two months ago, far across the sea from the United States there’s a message sent to the mailbox of L.C.O., Animal 119 in Taiwan. The letter was sent by a lady of a company in California, and she was very humble to inform us that they were interested in making a donation to L.C.O. and would like to give it on behalf of a beloved grandmother who just passed away. 
This was certainly an encouraging and exciting message to L.C.O. The news was soon reported back to the Headquarter and became a hit discussion among all the staffs. Everyone all felt admiration and respect for the donator.
Based on the spirit of “Love in Human Beings; Affection in Cats& and Dogs,” we were more happy than receiving a donation in the name of a beloved one because we understand the yearning for spreading the love. Therefore, we replied to the lady and informed them that we’d like to write this donation into our monthly magazine, and share this boundless love with all of our dear readers.
Throughout the two months of diligent correspondence and communication, we were happy to have assisted the lady to accomplish the overseas donation process, and learn a slightly more about this deeply missed grandmother:
Lady Hsien-O Sun Yang was the grandmother of a valued employee in a company in California. Ms. Yang loved animals very much and had always kept an eye on the stray cat situation in her homeland, Taiwan. Therefore, after Ms. Yang passed away, the people who cherished her a lot decided to make an overseas donation to our flurry friends in Taiwan on behalf of Ms. Yang’s name, hoping to remember this warm and passionate grandmother and extend her love far across the sea back to the many little lives in Taiwan.
This is the loving story attached along with the donation. Let us share it with you.
Donation in Memory of Ms. Hsien-O Sun Yang
We are both honored and humbled to be able to make this donation in the name of Hsien-O Sun Yang. Ms. Yang was a beloved grandmother to one of our valued employees. We have chosen this organization as Ms. Yang loved all animals, but especially cats. When Ms. Yang became too ill to take care of her cat, her family had to find a home that would take good care of the cat for her. We know that Ms. Yang is still be keeping an eye on this cat in her own way, and we think she would be pleased with our choice regarding this donation.
We L.C.O. would like to express our profound gratitude and respect to Ms. Hsien-O Sun Yang and the ladies and gentlemen who have assisted to accomplish this donation. Thank you for your support, and thank you for the love you spread on our animals!
L.C.O. currently is working on expend the overseas window, including English Official Website and English blog. Moreover, we are actively discussing the matter of cooperation and donation with many of the animal protection organizations or companies overseas. Hope by doing so, we could gradually extend our spirit and love to the world, increase the adoption and donation rate, and share the stories of our animals and rescue experiences with more and more people. We will continue on our mission of loving animals because we firmly believe that: Love will not be limited by languages, nor will it be separated by nationality.

Accompany Dog Program on the Go!

In the view of our founding missions and goals “Love in Human Beings, Affection in Cat & Dogs,” which aims to spread the love to all kinds, we firmly believe that taking care of every life is an inevitable social responsibility that L.C.O needs to take. Therefore, it is curtained that on facing the problem of aging population and low fertility in the coming future, we will strive to put more focus on the welfare of senior citizens.

Nowadays in Taiwan, it is reported that instead of the need of material life, it is the mental support and the need of company that many senior citizens are lack of. Hence, L.C.O. Alliance has demanded the New Taipei Branch and Taipei City Branch to cooperate on the training of the accompany dogs, hoping to help provide the senior citizens a warm company in the future.

When taking care of the accompany dogs, giving the dogs a sense of belonging, the elders can also enjoy a hearty and secure feeling from the company of the dogs. Based the above consideration, L.C.O. wishes to establish a mutual care between human and animals and solve the problems caused by the stray dogs.

Therefore, the head quarter asked of the Director General, Mrs. Hong and the member of Interior Department, A-hon for a prompt help. On capturing the wounded dog, the rescue car immediately rushed to Shan-Qin Animal Hospital which we've long cooperated with. The dog was taken back to the head quarter on the later night of that day.

Shiba Inu: 3 Years Wandering Away from Home because the Animal Shelter did not Scan the Microchip

[Latest News] of Animal Welfare  

Shiba Inu: 3 Years Wandering Away from Home because the Animal Shelter did not Scan the Microchip

Found its way back home on doing the rescan for being dumped by the second owner

Published: March 12, 2012, by Apple Daily
NEW TAIPEI CITY— Three years ago, Ms. Liang’s dog went missing. The female Shiba Inu was captured by the dog squads and taken back to the Chunghe Animal Shelter. However, the animal shelter didn’t follow the procedures to scan the microchip for the captured dogs; instead, they treated all of them as stray dogs and soon found the Shiba Inu two new adopters right away. It was not until few days ago when the Shiba Inu got dumped again could it have chance to receive a rescan and thus find its way back to its original family miraculously.
The story was revealed later by an animal protection volunteer on the Internet, describing the tear-moving moment of the reunion and even referring its journey to the Japanese legend, Tale of Hachiko. The story has aroused high attention among the animal lovers and pet keepers, and they are desperately appealing the government to take actions on this issue.

【Sharing from Ms. Hong】Stand for TNR- Handmade Catnip Pillow, Cushion, and Tunnel

On the moment of receiving the package from Ms. Hong, I was too excited that I couldn't wait to open the box until I reach home.
So I happily opened the box right at the parking lot of the convenient store. 
How I enjoyed the moment!!! \(^O^)/

This was how my package looked like!
What an environmental friendly package! 
In order to make the best use of everything and not causing waste, Ms. Hong used tap to fix all the holes on the old paper box.
The tunnel I ordered was put neatly in the plastic bags.
