About PACK Taiwan
We give a home and hope for Taiwan's forgotten dogs.
We dream of a Taiwan where every dog finds a loving home.
PACK Taiwan is the guardian of forgotten dogs. Our center, PACK HQ, is both sanctuary and shelter and offers them a high quality home and the best hope for a fulfilling life.
In 2013, a group of animal lovers banded together to create PACK (People for Animal Care and Kindness). In the early days, PACK rescued and provided care for all kinds of animals, including dogs, cats, pigs, sheep, duck and more.
In 2016, PACK was officially registered as a non-government, non-profit organization. With the revision of the Animal Protection Act in 2017 to ban the euthanasia of stray animals, PACK gradually shifted its focus to decreasing the number of homeless dogs in Taiwan. Today, PACK Taiwan focuses on providing homeless dogs with a high quality home and the best chance of finding a forever home.
PACK actively works to increase the Taiwan public’s acceptance of forgotten dogs and encourages people to take action by adopting, fostering or donating.

Echo, Chief Executive Officer
Echo has been devoted to non-profit organizations for a long time, and is also familiar with various social issues. She has also worked for a corporate company where she helped figure out the best way to accomplish Corporate Social Responsibility, and fulfill the value of the enterprise. There are a lot of animal lovers in Taiwan, but also a lot of people who choose to ignore the stray animal issue. Many stray dogs live in filthy shelters, but no one cares. Echo wishes PACK can lead the way, to increase the awareness of stray animals to people in Taiwan. As Mahatma Gandhi said: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
