Animal welfare advocates called on the Quezon City government “to put in black and white” the reported scrapping of an animal control ordinance limiting the number of pets per household to four.
On December 29, 2012, the Ecowaste Coalition and PAWS, together with other animal welfare groups CARA, AKF and Pets for Peace, rallied against the use of firecrackers for the New Year.
All the groups appealed to the public not to use firecrackers which are harmful to the environment and pose a risk both to humans and animals. The loud noise emanating from firecrackers also causes undue stress on our animal companions.

It is sad that the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) granted an animal welfare permit to the traveling dolphin show, which is set to perform in Araneta Center soon.
In reaction to this, conservationists and animal welfare groups led by PAWS and Earth Island Institute picketed the BAI office in Visayas Avenue, Quezon City, last Dec. 7.
A dolphin show or any traveling show with animals is not good for the animals. Often the animals are made to live under harsh conditions so that they can perform for the crowds that come out to watch.
It is cruel and truly sad.

They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning. No one you see, is smarter than he. And we know Flipper lives in a world full of wonder. Lying there under, under the sea!
If you grew up watching the TV series Flipper, the American TV program which had its debut on Sept. 18, 1964, then you will remember this lovable dolphin that captured every kid’s hearts then.
I watched the reruns. I was but a tiny baby in 1964.
Flipper was the bottle-nosed dolphin companion of Porter Ricks, chief warden at fictional Coral Key Park and Marine Preserve in southern Florida, and his two young sons Sandy and Bud.
