Time is racing. We only have just a few days to save the 31 remaining pups at the Los Banos dog pound. This January, the local government, in compliance with ordinance No. 2015-1455, will be putting impounded dogs to sleep as they have stayed beyond the four-day holding period of captured strays. A group of animal welfare volunteers, the Los Baños Advocates of Animal Welfare, Inc. (LBAAW), is calling on the public for help to save the pups. These volunteers have been taking care of the dogs since 2015, shouldering the expenses for food and medical care as, reportedly, the LGU has not released any budget at all for all these years to cover the cost of feeding the dogs.
There were originally a total of 58 dogs to be euthanized. With the public’s help, the volunteers were able to rehome 27. But there are still 31 left at the pound. If they are not adopted now, they will be put to sleep.
LB-AAW had exhausted all efforts of delaying the implementation of the ordinance but we had come to the point where compassion meets the law. Help us keep these dogs from being to sleep. May they find a home in you. #AdoptDontShop
