Many places in Taiwan have a serious stray-animal problem, and excessive stray animals often result in conflict with humans. The source of this problem is large numbers of abandoned, badly raised, and free-ranging cats and dogs. Heart of Taiwan Animal Care (HOTAC) discovered that “free-ranging domestic dogs and cats” make up the main proportion of stray animals.

To solve the stray-animal problem directly at the source and assist rural areas with scarce medical resources, Heart of Taiwan Animal Care Association initiated Rural Area Neuter Action (RANA). RANA sets up temporary medical stations in different locations to offer people a free neutering service for free-ranging domestic dogs and cats.

下鄉絕育行動 從源頭减少動物流浪

在台灣,有許多地方都存在嚴重的流浪動物問題,而流浪動物過多就容易和人類起衝突,其源頭通常是被棄養、流浪,或是放養的犬貓大量繁衍而產生。台灣之心愛護動物協會發現其中的「放養型家犬貓」就是流浪動物最大宗的源頭。

為了直接從源頭解決流浪動物問題,以及幫助醫療資源匱乏的偏鄉地區,台灣之心愛護動物協會在鄉下舉辦「下鄉絕育行動」,定期在不同地點設置臨時醫療站,讓偏鄉地區的民眾能免費報名參加,為放養型家犬貓進行絕育。
