Advocacy: Adopt Stray Cats & Dogs

Oct 10, 2014

        I was reminded of the PAWS Volunteer Orientation when I used the hashtag #AdoptStrayCats a few minutes ago because I posted this photo of Barako/Mingming in my Instagram account.
        I've always wanted to volunteer however, Quezon City is a bit too far for me and before, I didn't have enough time. But now, I'm decided to attend and really volunteer. I want to officially advocate the adoption of stray cats & dogs.
        I'm looking for interested individuals or group of people who wants to volunteer too. If you're interested, below are the details for the volunteer orientation.
Share your talent, skill and passion for the animals. Volunteer for PAWS.


WHEN: November 8, 2014 (Saturday), 10:00 AM - 1:30 PM
WHERE: PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center (PARC), Aurora Blvd. Katipunan Valley, Loyola Heights Quezon City.

1. Please hand carry your accomplished volunteer application form to PARC (during office hours of 10am to 5pm, Mon to Sat except holidays), ON OR BEFORE OCTOBER 31.

By personally submitting your volunteer application form to us, you will a) know where PARC is so you won't get lost or be late on the day of the orientation, b) be reminded of the things to bring at the orientation by our office personnel who will be accepting your application, and c) you can see what assignment can best suit you.

Interested volunteers who live within Metro Manila and nearby areas of Cainta, Rizal, Antipolo are encouraged to personally submit their application forms at the PARC Office.

Only those who are outside the said areas may send their volunteer application forms through courier or snail mail - please make sure it reaches us by October 31 and address to:
Philippine Animal Welfare Society

Horseshoe Village,
New Manila, Quezon City 1112

Please download and print the volunteer application form ( on 1 sheet of paper only (back to back) as we are saving on filing space.

Please do not email or fax your volunteer application forms, these will not be accepted.

2. Please bring P50 for the photocopied materials on the day of the orientation.

3. Please bring 1 tall can of cat food or dog food as a donation for our shelter animals ("orientation fee") on the day of the orientation.

4. Please bring your own snack and/or drinking water as there are no food stores in the area.

5. PLEASE BE ON TIME. Those who come in late (after 10am) and leave early (before 1:30pm) for the orientation shall be asked to attend the next orientation so that they get complete information on the policies for volunteers and Shelter rules.


Volunteers must be prepared to render at least eight (8) hours a month doing work at the shelter or outside the shelter for animal welfare to be in our active volunteer database.

Those who will not be able to render 8 hours of volunteer work a month need not apply as volunteers. They can be Supporting Members instead and click on the monthly donation button at Supporting members are also considered active volunteers and receive monthly updates from PAWS via e-mail. Please consider being a Supporting Member. Supporting members give monthly financial support to help keep the shelter running.
