There are lots to report since the launch of our e-newsletter in February.
We have been busy with animal rescue and rehabilitation at the PAWS shelter,
attending ongoing cruelty case hearings and filing of new cases, on top of the humane education program which are part of our day to day activities.
One good news is that Barbara, the dog featured in this issue's shelter update has been adopted out to a loving family and many or our rescued dogs have been physically rehabilitated and waiting to be rehomed.
Santino, shown in the photos below is one of the dogs saved from an animal hoarder who believed she was "rescuing" dogs. The six emaciated dogs - literally skin and bones - were taken from her custody and put into the PAWS shelter on December 13, 2010.

Less than a month later, with intensive care and physical rehabilitation efforts, Santino and his other housemates - has bounced back to health - fur has grown back, body condition now fair. Click here for the full story of Santino.
Like Barbara and Santino, all the other 55 dogs and 240 cats in our shelter today have benefited from your contribution.
There is still a lot more to be done and your continued support will go a long way in helping PAWS perform its mandate of fighting for the welfare and humane treatment
Your pledge of P300, P500 or P1,000 a month, will help us continue our passion of helping abused and neglected animals in need and file legal cases against those who wrongly treat animals.
Please visit our website at www.paws.org.ph to know more about our advocacy and what we do to help the animals.
PAWS is a volunteer-based organization that relies a lot on the help it gets from volunteers and donors like you.
Again, thank you very much for your support and your concern for the animals.
