Stray Dog Rescue. Dog Rehabilitation. PAWS Philippines.



Chase's story is just one of the many rescue stories that come out of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). The rescue team from PAWS came out on August 22, 2012 to rescue a dog reportedly stranded on an island along a very busy highway. That dog turned out to be lost alright, but the owner was found after some effort. All was well and good until, on closer inspection of the area, the team discovered this dog cowering in fear. That was Chase. 

As you can see from his admission photo, Chase was covered with mange and open wounds. The team took Chase to the Philippine Animal Rehabilitation Center (PARC) where he received immediate attention and treatment. You can see Chase's greatly improved condition in the photos. Chase still has a long way to go until adoption, but he certainly is on his way.

 I am providing pertinent information below for any of you who want to help PAWS help animals like Chase. All amounts, large or small, will be appreciated.

I am from Gingoog City, Misamis Oriental Philippines. Our city officials are rounding up dogs on the streets and gassing them until they die. Please help us prosecute these officials. They should have launched spay/neuter program. The mayor there is Ruthie Guingona, the wife of Teddy Guingona. It is hard to go against a political powerhouse like this couple.

Northern New Jersey. Dog for Adoption. Simba. Pomeranian.

Here's a dog I want you to meet, Simba. He's an energetic little fellow who literally leaps in joy when it's time for a walk. I mean, Simba leaps vertically like he's on a pogo stick. He's very amusing. Simba was rescued from a pound down in West Virginia, and he's now with us in northern New Jersey. I love small dogs, and he's become my most recent favorite. Simba certainly qualifies as a lap dog. Last Sunday, after walking him, we sat in our patio area at the shelter and I gave him tummy rubs and back massages while he laid like a pillow on my lap. I've been told that Simba doesn't like having a collar put around his neck, and so he wears a harness instead. Interestingly, Simba is microchipped. So, he belonged to someone who cared for him. He's a good boy and only two years old. All predict that Simba will get adopted quickly, like most toy dogs do.

Poem. Captivity, Longing. Cruelty. Misery. Free the Animals.

Thumbing through some Robert Frost poems, I was led to this one by Maya Angelou . I don't know if Frost ever had an influence on Angelou, but certainly any American poet living today would be familiar with Frost's work. Frost and Whitman are my favorite poets, and the romantic poets ( Keats, Byron, and Shelley ) I can't bear. I find their work dense, abstruse and impenetrable. It's just a matter of taste and connectivity. I am no expert on verse, but I will accept the opinion of those who are. They warn us that Frost's poetry is deceivingly simple. If we were to try our hand at it, to put complicated emotions into simple verse, we would be tied up in knots.

Anyway, Angelou's poem below, Caged Bird, touches on the plaintive cries, the longing for better things, that captive individuals must go through. You can apply the core meaning or sentiment of this poem to any situation involving imprisonment or captivity, human or animal. Think of the dog in a dank, dark ba…

Hiking. Protection Against Snake Bites. Gaiters.

You might wonder what on Earth are these? They are called, "gaiters," and fashion has nothing to do with them. Gaiters act like shin guards against briars and other thorny plants, worn by those who work outdoors like forestry rangers, ranchers, and farmers. Gaiters come in different styles and material, but they normally protect the ankles up to the knees.

This pair provides protection against snake bites. New material called SuperFabric makes protection possible without putting on the usual thick, cumbersome gaiters with polycarbonate sheets embedded in them. This pair is flexible and light, made by Whitewater. I got this pair from http://www.forestry-suppliers.com/

I believe that such protection is necessary for hikers considering that rattlesnakes, copperheads, and cottonmouths are not rare along the trails, and they can be difficult to spot on the ground. I am willing to accept the prevailing theory that snakes, like most wild animals, will avoid hikers if given enough tim…
