In March 2012, an estimated 266 pit bulls were rescued from a dog-fighting syndicate.
The 266 rescued Laguna pit bulls presented overwhelming challenges for the rescuers. Many of the animals were found in very poor health. They were cruelly chained to posts buried in filthy mud with nothing more than cut-out steel drums for shelter. They were terribly malnourished, many with wounds inflicted during dog-fighting and were suffering from exposure to the elements. Despite medical care, a lot of dogs perished or had to be put to sleep to end their sufferings, a result of the poor living conditions and lack of medical care in the hands of the syndicate.
CARA Welfare Philippines (www.caraphil.org
) has been taking care of the pit bulls since their rescue. With some borrowed funds and volunteers who put in a lot of hard work, CARA was able to relocate the surviving animals to a sanctuary just a few hours’ drive from Manila. Today, 92 remain and we continue to care for them daily to keep them healthy
CARA also needs to nurture the sick ones back to health. After their rehabilitation, we aim to find suitable individuals or families to adopt them. So far, thirty six of the dogs have been adopted and are now living much happier lives.
The Laguna pit bulls, or LPBs, need help. All the volunteers have taken time off from their regular jobs to care for the animals. The LPBs are innocent victims of human cruelty–our priority is to ensure the survival of the dogs.
