Dubbed the country’s Megastar, Cuneta has signed up with the Philippine Animal Welfare Society, or Paws, to pitch for its pet adoption campaign.
May Angela Felix, Paws campaigns specialist, told the Inquirer: “We chose Sharon because she’s a true animal lover. She’s sympathetic to the plight of abused animals.”
Felix met Mega when Paws was featured on her old TV5 show “Sharon: Kasama Mo Kapatid.”
Felix said that when Mega visited the Paws shelter in Quezon City, she instantly fell in love with a maltreated Chow that she has since adopted and named Rosie.
When Rosie was first brought to the shelter, “she can’t even be walked around the compound because of all her wounds (due to) skin infection,” Cuneta recalled.
