Here's one of our new arrivals. His name is Ashton. Described as a Blue Pitbull, Ashton has energy! I think he's less than two years old, and knows the sit command. You'll have to show Ashton who's the boss because he will become your boss if you are not mindful. Pits have strong personalities. Ashton needs a human who is strong and can keep up with him. Nice dog. You can see him at the Bloomingdale Animal Shelter Society .
Because I belong to an group of animal welfare advocates in the Philippines, I can read the numerous discussions between group members and people who, seems to me, just signed up to make an urgent plea for help. There were two this week who begged for assistance concerning two dogs who were tied up under rain and sun with no food nor water. One was described to be on the verge of a heat stroke. The images that filled my mind disturbed me immensely, but I am also encouraged at the same time. There is a growing number of animal welfare advocates in the Philippines and ordinary citizens are beginning to reject animal cruelty, willing to take personal action against it. Just from this website, I can see from the visitor data that many are seeking information on how to report animal cruelty in the Philippines. You can find my previous post on the subject HERE . Keep in mind that your complaint has legal standing via the Philippine Animal Welfare Act which is also known as the RA 8485 .
