Newsletter of Fourth Quarter 2018.
1. Companion animals .
|Oliver, found with a broken paw on an island off Port Barton finally joined his family in Norway. We prepared him for export and his owner came to pick him up on December 4.|
He’s enjoying happy days
playing in the snow and
even watching Cinderella on TV !
An excellent year for dog and cat sterilizations! A total of 574 bitches and 333 queens were completed with only 3 mortalities resulting from the surgery.
We also supported the sterilization campaign organized by Dr. Ian Jagmis (Pets United) in Roxas offering 7 ampoules of anaesthetics and 50 anti rabies vaccines.
On October 14 we participated in a sterilization campaign organized by the Office of the City Veterinarians in Puerto Princesa on the occasion of the visit of a tourist who came to pick up the cat she had adopted a few months earlier.
Abuse Incidents :
In addition to a litter of 5 abandoned kittens plus another two, we also collected two paralyzed dogs, one brought to us by tourists in cooperation with concerned residents of Coron and the other which was reported to us on our Facebook page by tourists shocked by the way dogs are abused. We picked him up in Sabang on December 27.
The dog from Coron had his left back leg amputated, as a hip fracture was detected by Dr. Danilo Hiceta (My Veterinary Clinic); X-ray by Dr. Ian Jagmis of Pets United revealed no fractures to the dog from Sabang and so we are trying to help him to recover the use of his legs through medical treatment. Both animals are in our recovery space.
Sadly the cattery fills and empties through abandonment and death …
Animal Pound :
The puppy adopted by the president is doing well and has become a magnificent 7 month old dog. There are still a few points relating to the trapping which are in need of clarification.
2. Farm animals.
Pigs crammed into corrals
And here’s the job ! Hundreds of lives wiped out in one night to satisfy the gluttony of humans !
This year, to our knowledge, more than 4,740 carabaos were exported from Palawan to Manila. This provisional figure includes animals arriving in Manila. There have been a lot of permits granted and the number of arrivals often doesn’t match. The slaughterhouse report is incomplete, but slaughtering of carabaos is rare.
Animals under 7 years of age
Our carabaos :
Our Julie bought by Martine Wernert left us on December 18 at the early age of 18. Samantha disappeared on November 7 and despite our efforts she was not found.
