January 17, 2010- Joey rescued a black dog that had been hit by a car on Dadu Road.
The dog was taken to the vet, who performed an emergency operation to stop internal bleeding. Unfortunately, the arterial damage was beyond repair. All we could do for the dog was put him to sleep and end his suffering. On January 18, we took his body to the crematorium.
We felt terrible that we couldn't save him. It’s heartbreaking to think that accidents like this are all too common in Taiwan.
I'm glad I work at Animals Taiwan, where we do our utmost to save animals and educate the public. If we can convince people not to abandon their pets, then we can stop tragedies like this from happening.
