PAWS Orientation for Volunteer Applicants - Aug. 22, 2009

Posted by siyerwin on Wednesday, August 19, 2009 at 4:29 PM

For advocates who have been waiting, here's your chance to learn more what you can do to help out in the Philippine animal welfare cause. Attend the volunteer applicant orientation on Saturday, August 22, 2009 from 10 AM to 1 PM. Venue will be at the PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center in Quezon City (Map Here)

For those who have not mailed in their PAWS volunteer application form, kindly download it, fill it up and hand-carry it to the venue.

This will be a good chance for you to meet the cats and dogs up for adoption at the PAWS shelter. We have over 200 rescue cats and dogs currently at the shelter and it is not easy to find homes for them. We need more people to help spread the word and educate people that pets are a lifetime commitment, not a passing fancy or something that you discard when things go a little rough.

Unfortunately, I've been receiving a number of correspondences from people that view animal shelters as places where they can abandon their pets. You may see such requests in the comments section of this blog. If you see some of them and can count them, you multiply that number by 5 and you can see how much email and comments I get (I don't publish all of them) from people trying to get rid of their pets. Multiply that by another 5 and you could probably have a rough estimate of how much PAWS is getting.

I will be making a rant/post about this in upcoming days/week.

CARA Cat Adoption Event - Aug. 22, 2009

Compassion and Responsibility for Animals (CARA) will be putting up a cat adoption booth at the Bonifacio High Street, The Fort, in front Coffee Bean Cafe from 4 to 9 PM. For those who are interested in adopting homeless animals and are near (or even far) the area, you may want to check out that event. Hope you bring home a kitty or two.
