You’ve heard about the 300 pit bulls who were rescued from a dogfighting syndicate in San Pablo, Laguna. The dogs are safe, but they need our help. We got this note from Alya Honasan, who’s been helping the dogs adjust to their new lives.
Right now the people working on the pit bulls need cement, cyclone wire, old towels, dog food, and of course, money to help set them up in the new site they’re transferring to. In charge of the animals right now are the Cebu-based Island Rescue Organization (IRO), who also took over the Cavite pit bulls, and Compassion and Responsibility for Animals (CARA), led by Nancy Cu-Unjieng. The site is in Bgy San Gregorio, San Pablo, Laguna. There are 216 surviving pit bulls.

Momma: a pit bull at the site. Note the heavy chains and the drums they have to live in. ( I just named her that, because she has obviously given birth recently. Actually I’d love to adopt her, she’s the sweetest thing, but she’s got some rehab, medical and psychological, to go through first. -Alya)
