The Guardians of the Fur took the time and effort to bring to safety some animals in the area. The volunteers went around Talisay, Batangas to search for animals that were left behind by their owners during the evacuation.

The Guardians of the Fur, which has over 73,000 members on their Facebook group, went patrolling around Batangas to save and rescue the poor animals. It broke their hearts to see a lot of animals left behind. Some dogs were even left tied to the gate or inside cages.

The group was able to rescue a total of 20 dogs and 2 rabbits in Talisay, Batangas. On their second trip, they rescued more dogs and cats. But they are not stopping yet as they continue their rescue missions. Ya-Chang Paala-Suico, one of the rescuers, shared how the group braved tremors and ashfall to save as many animals as they could.

She wrote, “As you can see ‘di kmi namili ng nirescue lahat po ng pwede naman makuha dinala na po namin. Hindi lang puro may breed kinuha namin nauna lang po sila nakuha kasi nakiusap sa amin may-ari noon. Wala kaming ma-rescue na madali lahat po sobrang hirap.”
