What we consider a “man’s best friend” is apparently scheduled to be euthanized on February 15, 2016, shares DUDE PH. According to the video uploaded in their Facebook page, the Baguio City Dog pound originally had 30 dogs. Fortunately, the video was picked up by several dog lovers and animal rights advocates and decided to adopt some of them.
They were reported taken from the streets of Baguio because of their irresponsible owners.
With a quick online chat with Jeff, one of the publishers of DUDE PH, he mentioned that his team will go to the pound today to check the current status of the dogs.
He also added, “currently I was told more than 15 were adopted already!”
In addition, I also read all the comments on the post and indeed, some of them were adopted by concerned netizens.
As per my cousin who lives in Baguio, the owners are given seven (7) days to get their dog back. In fact, a netizen also shared that the fee is 200 plus P20/day of stay at the impound. If unclaimed, the dog is automatically up for adoption.
What is Animal Euthanasia?
Animal euthanasia is the act of putting an animal to death or allowing it to die due to the following reasons:
- Extreme medical measures
- Incurable (and especially painful) diseases
- Lack of resources to continue supporting the animal
As defined by multiple websites, euthanasia is different from animal slaughter, although, in some cases, the procedure is the same.
Hopefully, this will serve as a warning to people who are considering getting a dog. If you are still in doubt, DON’T get one yet. Dogs are like children, you must nurture them like your own.
Unless you are ready to be a parent or carry a huge responsibility, you may adopt one. Please see below details.
Here’s the video shared by DUDE PH:
We still have TWO days left and that’s still a lot of time if you want to save one – if not- #SaveAll!
