InterAksyon.com’s Abigail Kwok reports: "At least 70 pit bulls subjected to inhumane treatment in a dogfighting arena will be put down on Tuesday, April 3, as animal welfare groups struggled to find appropriate housing and shelter for the abused dogs."

 

Kwok quoted Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), who saidin a phone interview that "there is no available shelter big enough to handle these dogs and provide them with food, water, and therapy." PAWS also added that "out of the 246 rescued pit bulls and pit bull mixes from a South Korean syndicate, only a maximum of 50 will be adopted by a private citizen. The rest will be put down in batches and the first batch, about 70 of them, will be put down Tuesday."

 

Cabrera pointed out that "euthanasia will be humane and will save the dogs from the risk of being ’recycled’ [for] the arena again." She also confirmed that "several of the dogs rescued from the San Pablo farm were the same ones rescued from a dogfighting arena in Indang, Cavite last year." As it turns out, according to the report, "the dogs were ’adopted’ but those who took them eventually turned them over to the Korean syndicate again."
