Stray dogs and cats are a problem all around the country. They live on a day-to-day basis, always vulnerable to physical abuse, vehicular accidents, animal fights, illnesses and subject to starvation. They also make the streets unsafe for pedestrians because they may be carriers of rabies and may attack or bite pedestrians unpredictably. As a consequence, people tend to abuse, kill or throw away stray (or domesticated) dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, which is against the Animal Welfare Act (RA 8485).
To address one root cause of the growing number of stray cats and dogs and instances of animal abuse, BARK Mission actively promotes the #spayandneutersaveslives and #kaponditapon advocacies. Although kapon is a humane way to control the stray animal population, the surgery is expensive and may range anywhere from PHP 600 to PHP 15,000 per animal. This makes it unattractive or undoable for many citizens, who would otherwise want to have their animal spayed/neutered.
The funds from this campaign will be used for BARK Mission's regular “Kapon Missions” which benefit indigent dog and cat owners, and stray cats and dogs. The funds will be used to cover the costs of the transportation, surgery and take home medicines after the surgery.
You can extend your hand to them by SHARING YOUR TREASURE WHILE STAYING AT HOME. Treasure Volunteering allows you to donate either via Paypal or with your credit/debit card so you can inspire hope. Your act of generosity could ripple into more acts of love by saving lives of our furry friends.
