MANILA – Three of the dogs that have been rescued from the eruption of the Taal volcano were brought to Manila, and received a surprise visit from Heart Evangelista.
The actress went to Instagram to share photos of her visit and requested donations from the Animal Welfare Society of the Philippines (PAWS), where she currently serves as a spokesperson.
“Heartbreaking but moving to see these dogs that were rescued from Taal. Thank you, PAWS Philippines, for putting them safe, ”said Evangelist.
“There are still so many dogs, cows and other animals that need our love. For those of you who want to help, the PAWS team will need cow food, chicken food, dog food, cat food, water bottles and pet bowls to help our furry friends. You can leave your donations or send them to the PAWS Animal Shelter so the team can take them to Tagaytay, ”he added.
In a Facebook post, PAWS revealed that Evangelist also left donations at the organization’s shelter in Quezon City.
Referring to the three rescued dogs, he said: “Buster, Aya and Ashes want to thank everyone who sent pet food, livestock feed, water and bowls for the #PAWSTaalRescue operations. The relief efforts will continue throughout the week, so continue sending your donations to the shelter. “
Evangelista, a well-known animal lover, recently worked with the Pawssion Project dog rescue group to provide shelter for a homeless man who looks after stray dogs.
The actress has advocated the adoption of pets and is working to install an animal welfare center in Sorsogon.
