Volunteer Orientation on March 1... and other shelter news!

Your voice is their voice.

There will be a volunteer orientation on March 1, 2008, Saturday, 10:00 AM, at the PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center (PARC).

What can you do as a volunteer? There are a bunch of them.

You can either do animal shelter work, help in fund-raising events to help pay the bills, help raise the spirits of hospital patients with our Dr. Dogs, visit schools to teach children kindness, or adopt!

Here's a little secret: I decided on volunteering for the selfish reason of just wanting to be near animals. I was kind of deprived of that privilege when I was growing up because folks at home aren't too crazy about them.

Now, two years after I attended my orientation, I have a companion cat that actually sleeps on my bed! She's a little hyperactive but she has managed to grow on everyone that even my 78 year old grandfather can't resist playing with her almost everyday...

See you at the shelter in 1 month!


Adoption Update:

There have been 5 adoptions at the shelter so far this year (as of January 26, 2008):

4 cats, namely, Goldie, Garfield, Ngay and an unnamed kitten are homeless no more!

1 dog named New York has also been adopted.

Celine has already been adopted even before I posted about her on this blog! Celine found home last December!
Jaya, the shelter dog
Jaya, a dog that used to be included in the sidebar adoption gallery, passed away due to sickness. Rest easy, little friend.

    I think there's P200 fee for the ID and the orientation materials that PAWS will hand out. Other orientation dates haven't been announced yet. Thanks, whitelight! Hope to see you at the shelter! :)

    May I ask when will the next orientation be? It's so unfortunate for me to browse your website after the orientation date.

Please do not leave your email or contact numbers in the comments. Email me directly at sherwin @ if you have concerns or questions. This blog is increasingly attracting breeders/pet sellers trying to advertise their business through the comments and I don't want that. The blog seems to also be becoming a bulletin board of sorts for people who wish to abandon their pets. allows no way to edit your comments so there I have no other option but to delete comments that I deem inappropriate in this regard. I apologize for the inconvenience. Again, if you have any questions/concerns, better to email me at sherwin @ than to comment here. Thank you very much!
