Cel­e­brat­ing Na­tional Dog Day at the beach

Animal Scene - - SCENE ZONE - By MAX­INE LOUISE LAG­MAN

Pups and hoomans had a fur-tas­tic day at the beach in cel­e­bra­tion of the Na­tional Dog Day at Acuaverde Beach Re­sort on Au­gust 25.

Hav­ing de­clared their re­sort as pet-friendly in 2016, in part be­cause of their Pet Loy­alty Club pro­gram, Acuaverde Beach Re­sort con­tin­ues its ad­vo­cacy to share with the pub­lic the role of dogs in the com­mu­nity by pro­vid­ing an­i­mal-friendly events.

Mae Domingo, event or­ga­nizer and co-founder of Pet Sum­mit Philip­pines, said

the event high­lighted dogs in need of res­cue from pub­lic or pri­vate shel­ters. “Na­tional Dog Day also pays trib­ute to fam­ily dogs for their loy­alty and . . . abil­ity to pos­i­tively af­fect peo­ple’s lives. This spe­cial day honors work­ing dogs as well for self­lessly risk­ing their lives to save [oth­ers].”

The event paid trib­ute to the hard­work­ing dogs of the Up-mmda-van­guard K9 Search & Res­cue, a joint project be­tween Uni­ver­sity of the Philip­pines Dil­i­man and Met­ro­pol­i­tan Manila De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity that trains dogs on dis­as­ter pre­pared­ness.
