Join us tonight as we interview Ms. Nancy Cu-Unjieng, president of CARA (Compassion and Responsibility for Animals) Welfare in the Philippines, one of the few national animal rescue organizations in that country.
Founded in 2000, CARA rescues dogs and cats from the streets and situations of abuse and/or neglect, and brings them into their foster program. They received global attention in 2012 when they took in nearly 230 pit bulls from what is believed to be the largest dogfighting raid in the world to date. Known as the Laguna Pit Bulls, only about 175 of them survived in the subsequent months, with many dying from their wounds and illnesses. The remaining are now being cared for by CARA's dedicated volunteers in shelter and rehabilitation facilities while they await adoption.
CARA Welfare receives all of its funding from donors and supporters from around the world, and they have an active Facebook page where they regularly post updates on the dogs and cats in their care and the often-dramatic rescues that their volunteers perform.
Hope you can join us!
