Pacio had a successful surgery early February to replace his shattered lower jaw with titanium plates. His caretakers' latest post in Facebook reported that Pacio now seems dapper” but still needs medication and vitamins. They were happy to report that he no longer needs to wear a protective pet cone.
The signature drive was started by one Sofia Alcazaren who alleged that the perpetrator is supposedly someone from Lasang, Davao City, has “connections” and has killed other dogs in the past.
“He has a caretaker who buries the animals for him...He has a brother who is a fiscal and nephew lawyer,” Alcazaren wrote.
Volunteer lawyers are working on Pacio's case and witnesses have already filed a case in Davao City. Donations for Pacio's medical bills are still welcome and can be sent to the Animal Welfare Coalition. – MetroPets
