The petlover’s spirit never wavers, never dies.
Just as there were so many Pinoys who gave freely of themselves and their resources at the height of the floods caused by the habagat, so were there many animal welfare groups that went out of their way to rescue pets that had been trapped in the floods.
It was heartwarming to see just how many folks took their loving pets with them as them moved to higher ground.
Still, there were pets, mostly dogs, that got separated from their loving humans during the height of the flood, or worse, others that couldn’t escape the flood because they were in a cage or tied in the house as the flood waters rose.
I recall reading a tweet that asked pet owners that if they couldn’t take their dogs with them as they escaped the floods, then the best thing to do would be to untie them or let them out of their cages so that these dogs would be able to fend for themselves.
