How To Help The Animals Affected By The Taal Eruption

As Alert Level 4 remains raised over the Taal Volcano, animals are also in need of shelter, food, and care

While life has returned to normal for most people in the metro, residents of surrounding areas of the Taal still remain displaced from their homes and find themselves in various evacuation centers across Batangas, Laguna, Cavite, and Quezon. With the Taal Volcano still on Alert Level 4, a hazardous eruption is still imminent, which means we can’t become complacent. As donations pour in to help the affected residents, the animals living in the area and those evacuated from the towns mustn’t be forgotten.

Here’s How You Can Contribute To The Taal Eruption Relief Efforts


Here’s How You Can Contribute To The Taal Eruption Relief Efforts

If you’re looking to help the animals affected by the Taal eruption, donate to or volunteer with animal welfare groups like the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). PAWS is still in need of chicken feed, hog feed, grass or hay, fresh drinking water, food and snacks for volunteers, and N95 masks.
