Good Place (好汪角) is a private dog shelter created by Ms. Lin.
Ms. Lin started this journey of dog rescue because of her first rescue dog. In 2010, she saved a stray dog from a life of abuse and opened her eyes to the extremely tough lives of stray dogs in Taiwan. She decided then to sell her house and moved to the mountain region to start her own shelter – Good Place, and has been living there with the dogs she’s saved since.
Ms. Lin has not only been rescuing and rehabilitating strayed and abandoned dogs, she also has been doing the best she to spay and neuter the ones that were roaming the mountains. Because of her hard work, the remote area close to her shelter has a much more manageable stray dog population (Note: Taiwan has an overwhelming number of stray animals due to zero euthanasia law but the lack of willingness or education regarding spay and neuter). In the past 10 years, she has saved countless dogs and found homes for many of them. Ms. Lin tried as much possible to bring stray dogs back to her shelter, and nursed them back to health. She currently has about 200+ dogs in Good Place. Many dogs in her shelter, due to abuse, neglect, accidents and other factors, many of them lost limbs or have life-long illnesses – and many are terrified of people. Because of her loving care, a good number of the dogs she saved are ready for adoption.
End of 2019, the member of Life of Hope (LHF) met Ms. Lin, and to our surprise, with 200+ dogs in Good Place, the dogs get to enjoy freedom on the shelter premises. By herself, she kept the place very clean. She knows the names of every single dog, and can tell you every one of their stories. Her dedication and love moved the founders of LHF.
In early 2020, Good Place officially became LHF’s rescue partner. For us at LHF, it’s an honor to be able to provide support to Ms. Lin and her hard work, even though we are a small non-profit organization.
