Responding to the drop in locally-transmitted Covid-19 cases and the Central Epidemic Command Center's relaxing of nationwide Level 3 restrictions, Taichung City's Houli Park Animal Shelter branch has been conditionally opened to public visits since July 15. Because of construction work at the Animal Shelter's Nantun Park branch, that branch will continue to be closed to the public. The following admission conditions and disease prevention measures are currently in force at the Houli Park shelter:
(1) The shelter is open for visits and dog/cat adoption every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Open hours are from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.; admission ends at 3:50 p.m.
(2) Please cooperate with temperature measurement and real-name registration when entering the shelter.
(3) Please wear a face mask within the shelter; food and drink are prohibited.
(4) Group guide service is currently not available.
(5) Admission is limited to a total of 30 members of the public at any one time; no more than 5 members of the public may be in large dog pens and independent cat house areas at any one time.
(6) Taichung City Animal Protection and Health Inspection Office may adjust the foregoing admission regulations without prior notice.
The Houli Park Animal Shelter branch will continue to implement reinforced cleaning and disinfection measures in key areas, including personnel/vehicle entrances and exits, offices, public counters, animal acceptance buildings, and peripheral footpaths. The branch will conduct disinfection spraying throughout the shelter's grounds on a weekly basis. In response to the easing of pandemic restrictions, the shelter will continue block all opportunities for virus transmission through disease prevention measures meeting the highest standards.
Taichung City Animal Protection and Health Inspection Office urges members of the public entering the shelter on business to cooperate with the real-name registration system and temperature measurements, wash their hands, wear a face mask at all times, and maintain social distancing. If it is found that a long line of people is waiting to enter the shelter, the Health Inspection Office may provisionally adjust entry regulations. When necessary to prevent overcrowding, visitors are asked to obey commands from shelter personnel to leave the area. Please help us maintain a high level of vigilance and protect your own personal safety.
