Newsletter of Second Trimester 2017.

Thanks to the generosity of our friends, members, sponsors,
we were able to acquire a new small van
necessary for the transport of dogs, cats, food.


1. Companions .

A fate not as the others

In the end of November, 2016 some tourists dropped us a dog and its three puppies of month old found in a pitiful condition. They asked us to prepare them for the export towards Europe. On this June 17th it is the great departure. They arrived well in their new home and we wish them a long life of happiness. Both females were sterilized before the departure and the males upon their arrival in Europe.

Ready for a long journey on June 17, 2017

Boarding to an enviable fate


Sterilizations : 

Due to the deficiency of the pound and the absence of a dozen days of the essential assistant, we sterilized in quite 108 animals against 291 in the first quarter.

We were invited for insufficient one a day to Cabayugan in exceptional collaboration with the veterinarians of the mean. The leader of the village decided to reschedule the activity for 2 for days at a later date.

Cattery :

Some tourists reported the presence of several cats, particularly females and kittens in the pension where they stay. We brought them to the cattery to sterilize them and return them.

Dog Control Facility :

No activity since March 25th unfortunately.

2. Farm animals.

Slaughterhouse :

No notable improvement.

Carabaos :

A moment of comfort with Ayten




We had the visit for a few days of a volunteer of exception. Ayten, Australian helped us in our daily tasks.




Unfortunately, one more time our hopes of improvement were disappointed: when we reported an unnecessarily early loading of carabaos in vans to the person in charge of the Animal Health and Welfare Department, the answer we received was not up to our expectations. It appeared that our report was not believed and the official documents were actually false while the employees of the government remain perfections of credibility …

The answer was not at the level of our expectations. In the limit we lie, the submitted official documents are false and the employees of the government are perfections of credibility …

A last moment to be well often refused



The early load in vans can be avoided seen the possibility of grazing while waiting for the departure on the ground of the shipping company Oceanic.



This quarter, to our knowledge, at least 828 carabaos were exported from Palawan towards Manila. 

The report of the slaughterhouse and the municipalities of the North and the South are incomplete for June.

Our carabaos :

All our carabaos are well. It was an important cape for Obama, Arthur and Api who were castrated in “good care “of the city veterinarians in the presence of the founder. We naturally supplied the anesthetics, the antibiotics, the anti tetanus and anti inflammatory.

Spectacular but without any brutality nor pain

Madam Paulette Begon purchased Merapi, a female of 4 years. We look for another carabao to complete the assigned sum. One very thank you to this generous donor who is also our voluntary translator.
