Project Updates
The Big Move

The Laguna Pit Bulls were rescued from dogfighting syndicate back in 2011.  Come March 2012, they were transferred to Batangas where they had their temporary shelter.  Last December 09, 2012, we started transporting the dogs to their new shelter.  God was kind to us giving us fair weather during the days we had to finish the process.  All the core members were there to support and help with the transfer during the first day.

Everything went well according to plan.  Cages were loaded on the truck. Transport kennels were cleaned and ready.

It was a matter of conditioning the dogs for the travel.  CARA and SLPB President, Ms. Nancy Cu Unjieng started to condition one of her favorite, Andy.

    greetings to CARA people. not many people likes dogs particularly the responsibility that goes with owning a dog. it’s heartwarming to note that there are “humans” like you who really have a heart for man’s best friend. i got teary eyed as i read on some stories of those rescued dogs. by the way, i am from Cabanatuan City and i also work here in this same city. my province is Nueva Ecija. i am also a dog owner and i treated them as members of my human family. may your tribe increase for the sake and welfare of our lovable companions. thanks.
