Back in March 2012, an estimated 230 pit bulls were rescued from a dog-fighting syndicate operating in Laguna. This syndicate was operated by Korean nationals who had been previously arrested for the same offense in Cavite.
After their release in December 2011, the Koreans quickly posted bail and proceeded to arrange for the acquisition of more dogs for their illegal and barbaric online betting business which they relocated to Laguna. This is where they were arrested again.
More than 200 pit bulls and other breeds are chained to their respective steel drum cages.
The 230 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 with wounds inflicted during dog-fighting. Many were suffering from exposure to the elements.
Despite medical care, many dogs perished or had to be euthanized to end their suffering. Today, 170 remain and the volunteers continues to medicate them daily because of their ill health from the poor living conditions in Laguna.
CARA Welfare Philippines (Compassion and Responsibility for Animals) and IRO (Island Rescue Organization) have been in the forefront of 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 in Batangas. It cost about Php 2 million to set up the sanctuary: clearing the land, providing electricity and water, putting up a perimeter fence, building cages, paying for medical and vet bills and hiring caretakers.
The projected cost of running the sanctuary is Php230,000 a month. The major portion of this budget is for food. Four (4) large sacks of dog food mixed with rice and vegetables are being consumed daily. We, your Pet Partners at Pet Warehouse Philippines are teaming up with CARA Welfare Philippines (Compassion and Responsibility for Animals) and Vitality Philippines in an effort to raise dog food, your Php 250 will be a huge help to feed these fur babies.
