TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- English news aggregator Taiwan Observer has compiled an extensive list of animal shelters across Taiwan on July 18, after its Facebook page was flooded with requests about shelters following a media report on July 14 stating that less than half of the Animal Protection Monitor Network's stray dogs in shelters are regularly walked because of the shortage of volunteers

The following list is still in progress, members of the public who are aware of other animal shelters not included on the list are welcome to submit them to Taiwan News at taiwan@taiwannews.com.tw or our Facebook page.
