In Filipino, "alaga" is someone or something that a person takes care of. It could be a child, a grandparent, an animal or, better yet, a pet. MetroPets is adopting this word to advance awareness and care for animals that could be good pets if only they are not being neglected or abused.
A.L.A.G.A. is short for About Little Animals Getting Abused, a MetroPets media-driven campaign to give voice to the voiceless, the scared and forgotten, hungry and destitute animals around the country. Please help us help the unlucky ones by posting their photos and details in our social medium.
It's been said that it takes a village to raise a child, perhaps we should do the same for the little animals crying out for help and hoping to become somebody's alaga.
