『Posting for Animal Advocacy Movement』

Taiwan Animal Equality Association(TAEA)has promoted “animal advocacy activities for migrant workers” for three years, by taking precautionary actions, like posting, to make migrant workers understand animal laws in Taiwan. Because of the amendment to the Animal Protection Act in 2017, where regulations become more compatible with Taiwan’s culture, we decide to put more efforts to publicize the newly amended law, with an aim to prevent dogs from being killed by migrant workers, and further to avoid social conflicts. In this advocacy movement, we spread ideas of animal protection with brochures and flyers that migrant workers can read and understand, invite everyone to take part in the movement, and reach the goal of treating migrant workers’ human right and animals’ right to live in a friendly way.

Qing Yuan Takes On a Mission

This video was filmed in a live show approach. Following two foreign colleague students from Vietnam and a dog to places where Vietnamese labours gather on weekends and seeing how they promote the laws of “No killing or eating cats and dog.”

Ruan Qing Yuan

Qing Yuan once kept a cat in hometown, so she have experiences of living with animals. Since she knows TAEA in her first grade in college, she has kept helping the promotion of “No killing or eating cats and dog” to foreign labours. She has dedicated to this volunteering activity for three and half years. Qing Yuan is out-going and eye-catching, so she’s quite popular and welcome when she’s doing promotions. In this video she’s the protagonist, and accompanied by one of her Vietnamese classmate, Lan Ying.

A Dai Gu

A Dai Gu’s is a medium sized dog, which mixed with yellow and black hair. He is the photographer’s 5-year-old dog. He’s active and energetic. However, as he was once a stray dog, he becomes more to with his owner in unfamiliar places. The timid look is ideal to present the theme of this video.

  • Anne ( 印尼版配音員 )

    “Everyone needs to give love and care to animals. You are allowed to eat dogs, cats, and rabbits in your country, but in Taiwan, the act is illegal; we need to respect different cultures and customs.”
  • Gunawan Praswanto ( 印尼版配音員 )

    “Cats are adorable and mellow animals. They are also good friends for humans. Animals are companions to our lives, and that is why I like keeping them.”
  • 李天志 ( 泰國版配音員 )

    “My dog is called Hongbao, whom I have kept for six years. Hongbao’s mom once fainted due to difficult labor, and I performed CPR on her to save her life. Thanks to that, my friend gave one of her babies to me. When I come to Taiwan, I dream and miss Hongbao very much.”
  • 吳巧儂 ( 泰國版配音員 )

    “I like animals, and keep eights dogs in Thailand. There was once that I went to Maokong for tea, seeing a shop owner’s cat and getting to play with the cat.”
  • Oliver Lapera Dangculos ( 男配音 , 菲律賓籍漁工 )

    “Dog is the fast learner animals and friendly to human.! Thats why dont eat or cook dog!!”
  • Asmin Sanchez Ruas ( 女配音, 菲律賓籍家庭看護工 )

    “As a migrant worker i will support, abide and respect the animal protection act. First ever expirienced as a vocal dubber in this video, and it happened in taiwan...great expirienced! Thanks for the opportunity~”
  • Aliw Bueno Abasola ( 菲律賓籍養護機構看護工 )

    “Same as the child in the video said that dog's are man's bestfriend,they are useful in some ways too.So they have the right to live as free as human.”
  • 呂越雄( 飾演廚師 )   陳理揚 ( 飾演動保人員 )

    “I was born in Vietnam, where eating dog meat is very common, just like eating chicken, duck, pork and beef. In Taiwan, however, it is illegal to kill dogs and cats for any reason and people there cannot tolerate eating dogs and cats, which they consider it barbarous. Because many migrant workers are not familiar with Taiwan’s laws and regulations, and miss the taste of home very much, they kill dogs and cats illegally, which stirs up controversies in Taiwan’s society. I’ve lived here for nearly ten years, understand how difficult it is to miss the taste of home aboard, and know the reasons why Taiwanese people don’t put up with killing dogs and cats. When the crew contacted and invited me to make an animal protection film, I accepted their invitation when I’d finished reading the scripts. We hope more and more people, especially friends in Vietnam, see the film, work together to keep dogs and cats in Taiwan safe, and respect mutually. ”
