From @pawssionproject – 30 impounded dogs in San Jose Del Monte Bulacan, all scheduled to be euthanized today but luckily, our contact was able to make an appeal to extend it till Wednesday. Our contacts were able to find a temporary shelter at a farm in Norzagaray with water supply, which will be rented for 2k monthly. But we would need help for the adoption fees. Bulacan City requires 500 pesos adoption fee per dog and all 30 dogs would amount to 15,000 unless you know people from there who can adopt the dog themselves and pay for the 500 per dog. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Time is running and we need to save these poor dogs. Donations may be made through: • Paypal [email protected] • BPI savings 3349032421 • Gcash 09778210271 •Go Fund Me – https://www.gofundme.com/pawssion-project?member=1217580 THANK YOU 🙏🏼Adoption papers and receipts will be given to donors for reference.
The organization mentioned that they have already secured a temporary shelter for the dogs but adoption fees are another story.
“Bulacan City requires 500 pesos adoption fee per dog and all 30 dogs would amount to 15,000 unless you know people from there who can adopt the dog themselves and pay for the 500 per dog,” an excerpt of their post reads.
Pawssion Foundation founder Malou Perez shared in an interview that the government has “very improper,” but not illegal, means of euthanasia if a dog is not adopted.
“One very traumatic experience for me happened during our second or third rescue operation here in Bacolod where upon our arrival at the pound, there were already police officers ready to shoot the dogs. There was already a [dug up] hole in the area,” she said.
Euthanasia of animals through shooting is legal in the Philippines, provided that they are performed by the Philippine National Police, Armed Forces of the Philippines or any other law enforcement agencies.
