Saving Lives, One Paw at a Time

As the pandemic continues to inflict damages to the country, we do see a ray of light in our fellow’s selfless commitment to help one another. However, this pandemic also hits one of the most vulnerable facets of the society which unfortunately includes animal shelters and rescue centers, and beings in need of help but cannot speak for themselves. As an academic organization that strive to bring to light the current state of animal welfare in the country, the UP Society for the Advancement of Veterinary Education and Research (UP SAVER) has initiated a donation drive entitled “STRAY With Me: Alalay kina Muning at Bantay” to raise funds for our three (3) chosen beneficiaries: Strays Worth Saving (SWS), MBY Pet Rescue and Sanctuary, and Halas Shelter. They are currently in need of financial aid to be used for food, rescue operations, medicines, and maintenance. These beneficiaries attempt to raise awareness for stray and abandoned animals. The target money pool as of the moment is set at Php 15, 000 and will be distributed equally. This donation drive will run from October 29 up until November 19, 2020.


Strays Worth Saving (SWS) is a non-profit organization who is dedicated to help stray dogs and cats especially those who are in pain that needs urgent medical interventions. MBY Pet Rescue and Sanctuary is also a non-profit organization that currently houses hundreds of rescues and needs help for food, medicine and rescue bills.  Halas Shelter hosts more than 30 dogs and serves as their temporary homes of rescues or strays who were either abandoned or never been owned.

Help us make a voice for animals. Let us stay for the strays, saving lives, one paw at a time.
