All of the expenses were supported by a generous sponsor. Our present organizer Mariglo Laririt in her post of secretary and her very effective team of secretaries, catchers of animals, driver struggled to bring to a successful conclusion this outstanding activity.

Cattery :

Fifteen kittens abandoned, found in the street have been sheltered by PAWFI. Unfortunately, too young, they did not survive.

Animal Pound :



Catching decreased but yet we were able to count more or less 232 dogs impounded this quarter.

On June 25th we had a meeting with the city veterinarian, the president of PAWFI and the person in charge of the pound in the department of the Interior. We suggested participating in all the campaigns of sterilization organized by the City Veterinarians to sterilize females and tattoo all the dogs. As counterpart, we receive all the dogs of the pound like that passed with no problem at all during 7 last years.

We received, at first, the last surviving puppy while the mother was dying. Our president was made an enjoyment adopt him. From now we are authorized to enter the pound, the president and the founder are nourishing the dogs.

Being at the end of live, certain dogs refused to eat.


2. Farm animals.

Slaughterhouse :

No change as far.

Carabaos :

This time it seems that we take the right direction towards a return to normal grace (favor) has the intervention of the coastguards. We met the person in charge of the shipping company who refused to submit himself to the law, encouraged by the veterinarian of the province. It is not made yet but there is a severe hope. This quarter, to our knowledge, at least 1.297 (!) carabaos were sent from Palawan to Manila. The reports of the slaughterhouse incomplete but slaughter are rare there.

Our carabaos :

All our carabaos are in good shape. Most of them rest while waiting for the harvest of the rice

3. Wildlife .
