Bacolod Animal Chance and Hope (BACH) Project PH, a non-profit organization on animal welfare, is calling the citizens to help with its adoption drive.
In a Facebook post, the group announced that it will hold a “Clear the Pound” adoption drive on November 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. “to save innocent lives.”
They said, “we need to empty the pound before the scheduled euthanasia which is November 15th, the day after the adoption event.” (Read: Dogs on death row need help)
“We are calling the attention of all the different animal rescue organizations and individual advocates here in Bacolod to please join us. We may belong to different groups but still, our hearts beat to the same beat – to advocate and save the voiceless and most neglected unit of our society,” the group said.
They also urged all veterinarians across the island to join them in the initiative, “your professional help would be a big contribution during the adoption day. We want to make sure that the dogs will be given immediate medical attention right after their adoption as well as to give professional advice to the new fur parents,” they added.
The group stressed that the lives of these dogs do matter. “If they don’t get adopted, they will end up in mass graves and will never see sunshine again. We need your help to make sure that all of them will have another chance in life. That all of them will find their ‘furever’ homes,” BACH said.*
