Project Updates

First Open House at the Pit Bull Center

CARA Welfare Philippines recently held its first open house at the Pit Bull Rehabilitation Center in Batangas.

Around 30 volunteers came out to show their support for the Pit Bull Project–a major undertaking that began in April when CARA, in cooperation with several animal welfare advocates, took on the responsibility of caring for nearly 200 Pit Bulls and mixed breed dogs rescued from an illegal dog fighting operation in Laguna.

The event was also a good opportunity for new volunteers to meet and greet the dogs and to spend quality time at the center. Volunteers were also briefed on the strict adoption policies that will be put in place for dogs that are ready to be adopted.

“Our hope is that they will be given the chance to live out their lives in a safe and loving home,” said CARA’s Maria Parsons.

    Wow, you’ve done an excellent job! The dogs are a far cry from their date of rescue. I believe they have become lovely because you have shown them a lot of love. Ganda ni Merry-go-round & Goldie!

  • Alex Mari says:

    Where exactly in Batangas is the center? I want to visit and possibly adopt a dog or two.

  • Karen says:

    I am very happy to know that an organization dedicated for Pits was established. This breed has been misunderstood for so long that they don’t deserve it! Contrary to what a lot of people believe, Pit Bulls are loyal, loving, playful, very tolerant to people and most of all, intelligent. I know ‘coz I have one at home and there is no doubt that you will fall in love with the breed once you get to know them better. Keep up the the good work and God bless.

      Totoo ito. Mabait ang mga pitbull. Kung sumama man sila ay dahil sa kagagawan lang ng amo nila. Kamamatay lang ng unang pitbull namin. Isa siyang napakabait at napakagiliw na aso. Siya na ang pinakamabait na asong nakita at nakasama ko. Hindi niya kailan man ninais na manakit ng tao. Kung kakayanin ko rin lang, pitbull ulit ang nais kong maging kasamang aso. Sana ay makakita ng tamang mag-aalaga ang mga asong iyan.

    Very thankful po ako sa pagrescue niyo sa mga pitbull. And i am thinking of adopting a pitbull to be a companion. I am currently with a Pug, but i am a pet lover. And i think this is one way of helping you guys save pitbulls here in the philippines. Pwede po ba malaman ang process for adopting a new friend?

  • Gellie says:
