Long read: Six months into the no-kill policy, we look inside Taiwan's shelters

Kao Chen-Chun said he had proposed to the Council of Agriculture to put animal hospitals on the front line of animal protection because most owners take their pets to animal hospitals at some point.

Kao proposed having vets take the initiative to implant a microchip if the animal does not seem to have one.

But for the proposal to become reality, the government has to take some action, Kao said.

Non-government organizations are all making a huge effort to push forward on animal population control, holding educational programs and organizing lectures.

At the end of the day, however, it still isn't enough.

"To be honest, I feel powerless," Kao said.
