New Taipei City mobile vet stations are established to provide medical service for our furry friends across 10 districts of New Taipei City

【New Taipei City】 In order to improve the basic medical service for the pets throughout New Taipei City, the Agriculture Department has come up with the mobile veterinary stations in 10 districts of the City without a vet clinic. The New Taipei City Veterinary Medical Association provides its cooperation in recruiting veterinarians on board of the mobile veterinarian vans for veterinary service in these districts. The “press conference for the initiation of New Taipei City mobile veterinary stations” was held today (the 2nd) at the 2nd Activity Center of Jinshan. Mr. Hou, Yu-Ih, Mayor of New Taipei City hosted the initiation ceremony for the stations. Honored guests, such as Mr. Huang, Kuo-Ching, Director of Chinese Cross-Straits Veterinary Industry Interchange Association; Dr. Chen, Pei-Chung, Director of Taiwan Veterinary Medical Association; Dr. Wang, Wen-Tien, Director of New Taipei City Veterinary Medical Association; Mr. Yu, Kuang-Hua, the signer; Yulau Yukan, Atayal singer and the veterinarian representatives of mobile veterinary stations, were invited for the participation in the mobile governance. In addition, Dr. Huang is also a consultant of the Taiwan Veterinary Medical Association and, therefore, presented microscopes as support for the establishment of the stations, a joined effort of public and private sectors to improve the medical welfare of animals across New Taipei City through the veterinary medical service tours in the 10 districts.
New Taipei City launched the “New Taipei City Animal Protection Online - A Home for Them” as a part of the animal protection policy series for the implementation of mobile governance and the establishment of animal protection network. Apart from the dedicated Line account “@0585net,” the opening ceremony was held on May 17 for the animal protection hospital and city-wide veterinary hospitals were invited to build the rescue reporting network for the animal protection hospital as an effort to improve the ability of vet clinics in New Taipei City to examine abused animals and establish a reporting mechanism for animal abuse. For the 10 districts of the city where there is no veterinary clinic, APHIO plans to establish mobile veterinary stations at Wanli, Jinshan, Shimen, Shiding, Pingxi, Shuangxi, Gongliao, Pinglin, Wulai and Sanzhi. Today at the press conference held at the Wulai 2nd Activity Center for the initiation of New Taipei City mobile veterinary stations, Mayor Hou and honored guests celebrated the initiation of the mobile veterinary stations for the improvement of accessibility to animal medical service as well as the medical welfare of animals in New Taipei City.

 New Taipei City has been promoting animal protection policies for a very long time, hoping to spread the concept of “adoption, no abandoning” across the mind of citizens. Local medical welfare is one of the focal points of Mayor Hou, as he puts his attention on not only the medical resources for the elderly but also for pet animals throughout the city. This time, the mobile veterinarian vans are established as the mobile medical stations for pets in New Taipei City in conjunction with citizen service centers and district offices to provide pet-friendly service for the medical needs of the beloved pets. Mr. Chou, Shou-Yi, Executive of Wulai District, says that they work with APHIO this time for the New Taipei City mobile veterinary stations in the hope to promote the idea of pet-friendliness in New Taipei City and encourage the interaction among different groups of citizens. On the wall of the Wulai 2nd Activity Center that is selected as a New Taipei City mobile veterinary station, there is an Atayal totem symbolizing the “eyes of ancient spirits,” and the event starts with traditional Atayal dancing. Mr. Chou hopes that the establishment of a mobile veterinary station will bring energy to the local tribal culture and improve the medical welfare of animals.
Mayor Hou says that New Taipei City is planning to launch a series of pet-friendly services through the improvement of policies after the zero-euthanasia policy. This year, the “New Taipei City Animal Protection Online - A Home for Them” animal protection policy series is launched. Following the establishment of an animal protection hospital rescue and reporting network in May and the mobile veterinary stations in July, there will be the establishment of the life education center and furry friend long-term care facilities to complete the animal protection network and improve animal welfare.
