The AARRC dogs awaiting your sponsorship
Tina: Well, I’m Tina and I arrived here just a few weeks ago. I cannot walk at all because of my spinal injury, but the nice AARRC people have given me a wheelchair so now I RUN, RUN, RUN!!! I’m a really sweet-natured dog and I love the attention I get here. The only problem is now that I need to learn how to drive
Luningning: I came to AARRC last year and I’m a really playful character, very sweet-natured too and I just want to play with everyone. It wasn’t always like that because I lost my two sons last year and that made me very sad for a while. My friends here look after me though.

Urbanz: Well, when they asked me to tell a bit about myself I said I ehhh, well, ehhhh I’m bit shy you see. I’m a good guard dog but you do have to get to know me over a long time. When I’m on the beach with my friends, I forget my shyness and we all run like mad hahahaha!
Hatchi: I’m the sweetest little dog around here (sorry Snowy!) and I like walking and sleeping a lot. I like the beach and, wait for this, SWIMMING! Probably because the AARRC folks found me on the beach.

Tita: I used to live just around the corner when I was little, but nobody was interested in me. I had eye infection and a little mange. Now that I’ve grown up into a real sweetheart that everybody loves, I feel very happy to be here with my friends. I just love the beach and play in the water.
Arwen: Hi there! I’m the queen around here! Yes, that’t right, I run things when the people aren’t looking hahaha. Seriously, I’m also a very sweet dog and there’s nothing I like better than to greet the humans when they arrive and show them I can dance and do “Gimme 5!”. Oh, and running is one of my specialities.

Ino: If you would notice me (but not many dogs and people do) then you would find that I’m really sweet and adventurous in a way. But then, I got used to hiding in corners away from all those bullies. Fortunately, I have many friends here now and I feel a lot better.
Bella: I really miss my Mummy Stephanie, the nice girl that looked after me before. But because she had to move and because I am disabled just like Tina, she gave me to AARRC to be looked after. Guess what? Now I have a wheelchair too and I can play with my friend Bantay. Yihaaa!!!
Oprah: Hmmm I’m one of the shy ones too. I’m very sweet and good natured, but when I don’t know you I tend to hide away. Fortunately Nicky of AARRC has helped me a lot and now I’m already much and much happier. I love sunning myself in a quiet little corner.

Falco: Hello folks! I’m Falco and I’m Chief of Security around here. That is because I can be really dominant. But hey, I’m the guard so what do you expect? Once I get to know you I’m sure we’ll get along fine. Just give me time. I enjoy walking on the beach and splashing around in the water.
Snowy: Ahh queen eh? (Sorry Arwen!) Well yes, but if I were bigger there would be no contest Seriously folks, I’m an expert rat hunter and an excellent guard dog. Nothing even comes close, literally! I love running on the beach and lazing around the humans. Given half a chance I’ll sleep in a bed, as queens do of course.

Viper: Thanks for listening to me, I’m <<ahem>> a real gentleman of age. Together with my friend Oprah, we’ve been through some really tough times and to top it all off, I not only list an eye but also my fur. The nice people here at AARRC are doing what they can to restore me to my former glory, but it’s taking time. In the mean time, I just take it easy and enjoy my pension for a change!
[Sponsor: Mr. Joep Thijssen]
GM: When I was found I was scared and had no fur to shelter me from the rain or cold. I felt really miserable, but now after almost a year, my fur is slowly coming back and I feel a lot better. One day I will be beautiful again! I like to look after the puppies here and they are my real friends.
Soldier: After having lived with another family, I was assigned to be a guard dog with AARRC. I vow I will always do my duty by being a faithful dog and guard. Just don’t let me out of your sight though or I will hump your leg out of joy hahahaha.

Sophie: Not all that long ago I was a victim of the Dog Meat Trade … Together with hundreds of others I was transport in cages on a truck on our way to, well I don’t want to know, but I fear it would have been my final destination. Fortunately the kind people of Animal Kingdom Foundation rescued me and gave me to AARRC to have a happy life from now on. I love my new buddies!!!!
Jiji: Me, well, ehhhh, I’m a bit shy too. But when you see me on our beach, then you’ll know why they call me the “Pocket Rocket”. Because I’m the fastest runner here. I just love teasing my buddies Tita and Agua hahahaha.
Gracia: I’m still a bit shy but that is also because I don’t feel so beautiful at the moment. I have mange you see. Still, I’m being treated now and when I go to the beach or play with my friend Bantay, I totally forget my troubles and just play.
Bantay: Yeah, my friend Gracia needs cheering up, so that’s why I run around the yard like crazy trying to get some playtime. The young ones generally don’t mid, like auntie Luningning or my buddie Gracia. Other times I’m afraid I just have to adapt and sleep.
Biselda: When I was a little puppy, I had an accident on the road outside our house and I broke my hip. Therefore I can’t walk very well anymore, but I’m a very happy girl and I like being with my friends and go to the beach. Sometimes I even manage a bit of a run, just to show you guys I’m happy!!!
Prada: I’m the new kid here, so what can I say: getting to know the others but because of the quarantine, I’m not allowed to play with anyone yet. At first I was REALLY unhappy and kept everyone awake, but now that I’m getting to know the gang, they’re not so bad at all.

Gaisano: Hi everyone. I’m a dog of very few words. I can’t see very well due to my age, but I’m a happy and quiet guy. I get along very well with all the others here.
Agua: Hey, don’t you think I’m a beauty? I won a beauty contest at the Kalibo town square last year for “Best Asong Pinoy (Philippine Dog) in Show” and I’m REALLY proud. I’m a sweet girl that loves to run on the beach and chase mice and rats too. My best buddy is Arwen.
