I first spotted Ellen sitting alone on top of a grave in a Pasay cemetery, staring up at me with her huge puppy eyes. Because of a bad case of sarcoptic mange (or galis), Ellen was almost totally hairless, and she was also malnourished and riddled with parasites. I asked around, but everyone said that she had no owner. It's been more than three weeks since I found her and took her home, and now she's flourishing. Her hair has grown back, she's gained weight, and she's been vaccinated. She's ready for her forever home! Are you the guardian she's been waiting for?
You don't have to start a project like this one in order to improve animal welfare. You could educate your friends and neighbors about the importance of spaying and neutering animals, walk chained dogs in your neighborhood and offer them water, or adopt a cat or dog from the streets. Always speak up if you see an animal being abused.
To learn more about the work of the Pasay Pups, check out its Facebook page. I hope you'll join Pasay Pups in improving animals' lives by being a voice for animals in your own community. And if you'd like to welcome Ellen into your family, please e-mail Info@PETAAsiaPacific.com. Homes in which Ellen would be kept caged or chained will not be considered.
