This coming Sunday, me and my Yorkie, Cairo, will be at Bonifacio High Street (in front of Hobbes and Landes) for Dog Wash Weekend. I’ll be doing some hosting duties around 3pm, then Cairo will be washed and groomed as well. Then, we’ll have our picture taken, after he’s all cleaned and groomed. I heard fellow RX jock Gelli Victor and her Pomeranian, Colette will also be there. So I’d like to extend the invitation to you all in case you’d like to join us. We’ll be there by 3pm, but the event is a whole day thing, starting at 10am and ending at 6pm. If you’re an animal lover, you’d might want to have your dog groomed. Or if you’re pet-less, you might want to just look at some amazing dogs who would probably be there with their humans.
Why join us when you can just bring your dog to your regular groomer? The money you’ll pay for services rendered will go to a good cause. Proceeds will be donated to Animal Kingdom Foundation in their efforts of rescuing and rehabilitating dogs bound for the slaughterhouse. As described in their website, “AKF’s mission is to support, protect and promote welfare and the rights of animals; to eliminate the practice of illegal slaughter of dogs for human consumption and to introduce legislations or amendments in the existing animal-welfare laws of the Philippines.” If you have pets you love like your own family, or any person with a modicum of love for animals will surely be disgusted at what people still do to dogs in this day and age.
Please learn more, check out their website: Animal Kingdom Foundation.
So if you’re free on Sunday, do try to check it out! Even if you’re not inclined to be a freedom fighter for animals, you might enjoy even just being around all those wonderful dogs. I also heard that the day before, Saturday, May 22, CARA Welfare Phils will be having an adoption booth for rescued animals also at Bonifacio High Street, at the same location opposite Hobbes & Landes, 4pm – 9pm. You might also want to check that one out. I know I will!
