IFAW informed PAWS that the body conditions of the surviving dogs will start to deteriorate at least 3 to 4 weeks after the disaster, when the animals have finished up eating whatever food can be foraged in the vicinity. True enough, when our 4th and 5th teams visited the same area last November 29th, no animal refused the dry food that our team gave them.
Much to the amusement of onlookers, the duck, panicked and squawked, when Doc Dave picked the dog up to vaccinate him. The owner of the dog and the duck explained that the pair were inseparable ever since the duck – as an orphaned duckling – “chose” the dog as its mother and companion.
Dr. Karen Golong – volunteer physician for the PAWS-LAF Team – was able to also give free check-ups to 656 people as the veterinary team of Dr. David Arceo working with Tacloban-based veterinarians Dr. Nikki Oppus, Dr. Marlon Conde and veterinary students Sarah Lago, Benzon Jadoc, Teresita Labra and Richie Gamas attended to 706 companion animals. Dogs and cats received much needed vitamin supplements on top of rabies vaccinations and dewormers. Dogs with mange were also given treatment..

PAWS-IFAW worked with World Vets and the Armed Forces of the Philippines Vet Corps to render service to 368 animals in San Jose, Tacloban City and municipalities of Marabut, Giuan, Giporlos, and Balangga in Eastern Samar. These animals were vaccinated and tagged with new collars to identify them. Aside from pet food, relief goods were also given to their owners.
The PAWS-IFAW team had proposed the idea of coordinating all international animal welfare groups' efforts to the Bureau of Animal Industry so that all resources will be effectively spread out.
We are pleased to announce that PAWS-IFAW was among the first teams recognized by the Animal Relief & Rehabilitation Philippines (ARRPh) of Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI). The ARRPh logo is designed by PAWS Director Heidi Guzon.
