In a certain Facebook post by Mark Dianne Duarte, three women are now asking for help from anyone with a good heart to help them with their current situation. The victims are residents of Cabdbaran Agusan del Sur.

    With the intent to enhance and beautify themselves, they decided to undergo treatment from a person whom they barely know. The procedure went by injecting some unknown chemicals unto their faces. However instead of having better and beautiful faces, it went really worse and appeared distorted. The three of them have the same reaction with the chemical.

    With the help of their friends and families, they are now trying to reach a certain amount in order to help the victims. Aside from the horrible outcome of what happened, the victims are now starting to become ill and are all afraid of what could happen to them if not given the proper care.


    Unfortunately, the suspect is now nowhere to be found. The victims were not even aware of the suspect’s whereabouts.


    According to the one who posted, a certain media will then cover the story of these women, to inform and especially warn those who would dare to undergo such procedure. The suspect was not a licensed medical professional but because of cheaper rates he managed to convince these ladies to try it all for the aim of becoming beautiful.

    When you don’t have sweet tooth it is hard to find snacks that can match your low tolerance for sugar. Almost all snacks were made out of sugar, chocolates and other forms of sweeteners. It is the main reason why Skittles stands out from the rest of the group. It is a sweet yet sour candy that comes in a bright rainbow colors. But all of a sudden Skittles became really dull and lost all that rainbow colors.

    In an official stamen made by Skittles, they decided to have a different packaging for intended for the entire month of June. As practiced June is the month dedicated for the LGBT community. The LGBT community has the rainbow to represent them because they acknowledged that they are composed of different genders thus constitutes not just a single color but of different colors.

    Since the Skittles and the LGBT community share the same kind of color representation, Skittles gladly gave way to the LGBT community. According to them, although the share the same symbol, one has to stand out and celebrate their existence and they give it whole heartedly to the LGBT group. 


    This is such a remarkable and thoughtful move for Skittles. Although they were branded and known because of their color, they were not afraid to give way to celebrate a significant event for some people. Consumers in return have shown appreciation to what the company did. Their customers admired their sensitive and immediate decision to honor the LGBT community.

    Changing brand packaging is a bit risky when it comes to sales and market. Well known and established companies see to it that when they have to change or modify their packaging it needs to be somehow close to the previous design. It is because people shop out of familiarity. When you change your packaging into a totally different concept, chances are your consumers will not be able to recognize your products anymore. 


    However it is different with the case of Skittles. They dared to risk their sales and their brand in order to commemorate an event. With this making rounds in the internet, Skittles is rest assured that their customers would still remain loyal to them. 
 

    The primary instincts of humans is to survive. However aside from the goal of surviving humans are also born to appreciate art. Although art may seem not a necessity because a human being can survive without it, art is something that makes a person able to survive while staying sane. Art is not limited to paintings or drawings, music is considered as an art and even language. Humans are born to be artistic creatures and it is exciting to know that art is limitless and it can never be stopped. It is immortal and it will always be. One of the ultimate representation of art is having a tattoo. But is tattoo a form or art and expression or it is just a form of style?

getting inked


    Getting inked isn’t simple as it seems. Your body will become the perfect canvas for this art, thus it is important to carefully think about your purpose and the design that you wished to have. Also the pain while getting inked is not a joke. And, tattoo artists need to be very precise when they are doing their job. It is why tattoo artists deserve such high respect among other artists. 

tattoo artists


    While many people could not understand why some would want to “stain” their bodies like they always think of, having a tattoo constitute to something deeper than just a fashion statement. It is quite hard to be judged once you have tattoos in your body. The society has this idea that once you have one in your body you are either an ex-convict, drug addict, a member of a gang, a prostitute and so much more. People with tattoos were even branded not to have good jobs. Tattoos are often objectified as a good for nothing art. 

getting inked


    Having a tattoo is not equivalent to committing a crime but some people don’t make any distinction to it. People should then realize that art can take different forms, if they learned to appreciate music then tattoos deserve that chance too. 


    People who would want to get inked are ordinary people with bigger appreciation for art. They are the ones who are not afraid to be judged by other people. They are not ashamed of expressing who they are and they are proud of having it inked on their bodies. Having a tattoo does not mean you are destroying your body. How come it become destructive when it is in fact what your heart desires? 
 

    When you reach the age of 25 it is quite normal to feel a bit old and that you will realize that you are no longer young and the pressure of aging is slowly sinking into your mind. Although being in your late 20’s is still far from being really old, it is the time of fast transition. You graduated from college and then you start to work. It is a period of adjustment that you just can’t say no. Whether you like or not you have to face and embrace responsibilities and even stress. Stress is such a big deal especially if it is making you look older than your actual age. However there are some people who are so good in dealing stress and they don’t seem to age at all. Here are some of the things that could make you look younger.


1.    

get enough sleep

Get enough sleep – it is important for yourself to have enough sleep. It is your body’s way of recharging your system. The more you skip sleep the more untidy you look and that will surely make you look old.

2.    

Refrain from smoking

Refrain from smoking – thousands of medical research have been already made proving that smoking is not good for your health. Aside from the threat of cancer, it can make a person look old because it contains chemicals that can actually damage healthy cells. It has direct effect on your lips and teeth because it can turn them dark or black which is really ugly.

3.  

eat a healthy meal

 Eat a healthy diet – you are what you eat, so if you keep on eating on fast-food, you are also making yourself old faster than the usual. Your cells require nutrients and vitamins in order for them to function well. If you deprive yourself from a healthy diet there is no way for you to slowdown aging in your case.


4.    

 Engage on daily exercise

Engage in daily exercise – burning sugar and fats have great effects on your body. It helps in the proper circulation of your blood thus it can really make you look younger because your body will have enough supply of what it needs. 

5.  

Release stress

Release stress – one of the greatest culprit of untimely aging is stress. It can really make a person old. This is why it is very important for a person to release stress once in a while. Go for vacation, adventures or just chill out and clear your mind of the things that stresses you. 
 

    Financial stability is something that you will encounter when you start working and earning money. Actually you need to face it whether you are employed or not. It is something that you can’t escape. However the earlier you try to handle it the better. If you are already earning it is best to save something out of your daily salary regardless of how small it is. It is always best to think of the future and be prepared for any emergencies. However saving money is not the only way to become financially stable. There are a lot of ways on how you can make use of your money and investment is just one of these.

jewelry as investment


    Sometimes it’s a bit hard to invest your money in banks with their investment programs because of the huge minimum amount that they require. Investing your money in a business can be a bit risky as well especially if you don’t have any knowledge or experience in running a business. But leaving your money in your savings account isn’t a good idea as well. One of the best ways to make use of your money without the risk of losing it is investment in things such as jewelries. 

pawning jewelry


    The good thing jewelries is that you can eventually use it in times of emergency by having it pawned. You can get cash from it but you still have the chance to get it back. It is handy and you can even wear them. Also, the market price or the value of jewelries do not entirely depreciate. In history, the price of gold constantly goes up through the years. It is like a real estate investment. It doesn’t depreciate, rather its value increases as time pass by.

jewelry as investment


    However it is important to choose the type of jewelry that you wish to buy or invest your money with. Go for small pieces in a number of quantity. Do not invest all of your money on a very expensive piece because you will then find it difficult to get it back once it has been pawned. Also the value you can get will largely depend on the pawnshop. Pawnshops have different appraisal values and interests. Make sure to choose the one suitable to your current financial capability. 
 

    Are you feeling old and you feel really pressured because of your age? Sometimes it’s a bit frustrating and at the same time frightening that you become older yet you still don’t have a family of your own or perhaps a house, car, or worse a good paying job. However these are all social demands that any person is currently facing. There are ways to handle these things but it is important to live a life with manageable amount of stress.

age is just a number


    Age is just a number and you can always be the person you want to be regardless of that number you have in your birth certificate. Take for example this Grandpa who became really popular because of his OOTD’s. Despite of his notable age, he is still trying to fit in with the trendiest clothes and outfits. He is not the typical Gramps who would rather stay at home and spend their afternoon taking a nap.

    This guy right here is still enjoying his time no matter how old he seems to appear. He is the living proof that indeed age is just a number. Your positive thoughts can always overcome your worries and even your age. He maybe old with his body but he has a young mind that knows how to chill and enjoy life even when he is already in his twilight years.

    According to him, young people should not forget to enjoy their lives. They should give themselves time to relax and release stress. It is also important to look good and feel good because it releases positive energy. It can give a positive outlook in life. And when you are positive about it you will enjoy every minute of your life.

age is just a number


    When asked why he loves to dress in trendy clothes, he said he was just really into clothes and he don’t want to miss the fun of wearing such clothes. He have been through a lot of changes when it comes to fashion trends and he thinks it’s fun to be part of the changing trend and still rocking it. 

    In order to stay healthy and fully functional it is important for everybody to achieve a healthy lifestyle by having a proper diet and daily exercise. Moreover to promote wellness, proper hygiene must be practiced as well. Aside from taking baths regularly it is good to pay attention on specific areas of the body that require due attention and a special kind of care such as the underarms.

underarm hair


    There have been debates whether to remove or shave the hair under the arms or to just let it propagate. Body odor is often recognized and being blamed to the underarms. There is a special thing about the armpit that it produces a distinct kind of smell. The smell can be considered as pheromones or the natural odor produced by the body to attract potential partners. However, unlike animals, humans no longer need to rely on pheromones to get a prospective partner. Humans do communicate but body odor can prevent it from happening because nobody likes to stay with someone with a stinky smell from their underarms. 


    Commonly, women ought to shave their underarms because it doesn’t really look great to have an armpit full of bushes. It appears less feminine and a bit messy for women. For women, the more smooth and silky your skin is the better. Meanwhile men are not being pressured to remove or shave their underarm hair at all. For them it adds up to being masculine which could fall on the same category with having mustaches or beards. 

underarm hair


    However if you are concern in maintaining a healthy and proper hygiene, it is best to remove those unnecessary hair regardless of your gender. Two of the primary function of the underarm hair includes: (1) to lessen the friction of the skin in between your underarms. (2) To serve as reagent in producing pheromones. As mentioned earlier you don’t need to produce pheromones at all and there is no evidence that would support the claim that shaved underarms can cause injury to the skin due to friction. 

underarm hair


    It is important to get rid of those hairs because if you keep them, it becomes a perfect place for bacteria and other body odor causing germs to multiply. Just imagine how gross it is to have a breeding area for bacteria and other germs in your body. A well shaved underarm is much easier to clean and maintain. If you are using deodorant, it can penetrate well to your skin even by using small amounts only. The substance can be absorbed by the skin immediately. An unshaved underarm would usually become sweatier and wet compared to the shaved ones, because it takes time before the hair dries up from your sweat. If you don’t have hair in your armpit then your sweat will just evaporate in no time. 


    There are several ways to get rid of those unwanted underarm hairs such as waxing, plucking and the less painful yet most effective, the use of laser. 

   Losing weight, especially in this day and age, can be pretty hard. And with millennials today so used to instant-everything, long-term goals like weight-loss can be aggravating to achieve. That's why a lot of people nowadays resort to slimming pills, thinking that it’s the easier and simpler way to weight-loss. Others take them because their doctor prescribed it to them, maybe due to obesity-related health problems, or that they're allergic to certain foods and unable to go on a diet, or maybe even have a heart problem rendering them incapable of doing any exercise regimes. That’s what these pills are intended for. To help people who are physically unable to become healthy weight-wise. But for people who are capable.     I hope you’ll reconsider gobbling up that next pill after you read this. The risks in taking non-prescribed medication could range from uncomfortable to downright dangerous:
    1.    Old habits die hard.
Striving for long-term goals like weight loss are life-changing and can lead you to good eating habits, well-needed practice of exercise, and in turn, a healthier lifestyle. It’s not easy but it’ll be worth it in the long run. Pills are made for quick-fixes but just that. They’re temporary. They’re not meant to be sustainable and when stopped, you’ll just go back to square one.

    2.    You’re just shedding water weight. Not actual fat loss.

slimming pills


Notice how when you take diet pills, you tend to go to the bathroom more often? You’re not flushing out fat. It’s just water weight, since most slimming pills are a combination of diuretics and caffeine.

    3.    Dehydration
Now that I’ve mentioned how these pills only flush out water, the bad thing is, not only will that water weight eventually just return back but you could actually be in danger of dehydration.

    4.    You could be at risk of a heart attack.

slimming pills
Studies have shown that people taking certain popular diet pills have put themselves at much greater odds for stroke compared to their non-partaking counterparts. You see, most of these drugs’ main ingredients are stimulants (phenylpropanolamine or PPA for one), which can be seen in prescription level drugs.

    5.    Mood swings

dehydration
Get ready to swing… mood swing that is. Some pills have been sold as appetite suppressants. These work as stimulant drugs; they help curb your appetite by increasing certain chemicals (like adrenaline) in your brain, the ones that control your desire for food. You’ll feel more easily satiated and are not likely to overeat. Good for people suffering from obesity, but other than that, it’s not such a good idea. The elements affecting your appetite are also responsible for a lot of other things. Tampering with them may cause insomnia, anxiety, irritability, heart rate, etc. hence the mood swings.

    6.    You can get addicted.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, some pills have stimulants as their core component. Stimulant drugs, like amphetamine, can lead to psychological dependence if abused. Watch out for yourselves or your loved ones taking these; see if they’re becoming obsessive with their weight and taking medication more than they should.

    There’s no magic bullet, or in this case, pill, to instant weight loss. Better to just stick with the classics, to what’s proven and tested: some good-old fashioned reduced-calorie high-fiber diet and a carefully planned exercise routine. Sure, it’s not instantaneous, but the journey will be well-worth it.
 

    In every nation or country there are stories that are very much pleasing to know such as its history, culture and tradition. Each country possesses a unique story that sets it apart from any other places such as Japan. Japanese people are much known for their patriotism and their strong ties with their culture and tradition. They are the ones who would literally die to give honor to their country. They give importance to nature and life as a whole. They strive for wisdom and pride. They honor their forefathers as much as they honor their country.

    One of the most iconic symbols for Japan is the Cherry Blossom Tree. In fact in became one of the tourist attractions in Japan. Although this tree can actually grow in other countries, cherry blossoms from Japan are incomparable to others because it holds one of Japan’s important culture and tradition. Japanese view cherry blossoms as a symbol of life itself. For them, they believe that their lives can be of similar to these trees. For them life has its seasons and it is as beautiful as this tree. Just like trees, the human life has its expiration or end and that they are reminded to love and cherish their family member because nothing is permanent in this world.

    These trees start to bloom as early as February and its peak takes place during April. Large number of families gathers to witness the cherry blossom trees in full bloom. It is a special moment for everyone and family members see to it that they could spend time with each other during this season. Watching the cherry blossom tree with its soft pink color is greatly appreciated in Japan. It is a way of honoring their beliefs and history as a whole.

    As much as Japanese people would like to share this important event to tourists, they are persistent in reminding the public especially the tourists to follow certain laws and proper etiquette when they wish to be part of this celebration. No one is allowed to hold the Cherry Blossom Tress, or shake them because it is a sign of disrespect and humiliation. Although it may seem an ordinary tree for some tourists, for them it is part of their identity and they would like to preserve this belief no matter what. Tourists are then expected to be very cautious and just enjoy watching these tress and not cause any trouble at all. 

    Pimples are naturally occurring type of skin problem. It is normal to have pimples once in a while. However if your pimple seems to occupy a space on your face on daily basis, then you are suffering from acne already. Acne or severe pimple breakouts are totally undesirable. It is painful and it makes your skin red, making your face a bit uglier than how you really look like. Nobody wants to have acne problems but not all are doing the right way to prevent themselves from having one.

    The best thing to counter an acne attack is to know the reason why you got them. They don’t grow on your face because they just feel like breaking out. There has to be a reason and you need to find out. If you check on your acne you will probably notice that your pimples usually grown on the same spot over and over again. This is because a significant place in your face corresponds or is linked to a particular organ in your body. This is the reason why your anti-acne products appear to be not that effective at all. Proper cleansing must also take place on the inside not only on the outside. 
    It is great to know that the pimple areas in your face actually represents a specific organ in your body, thus you will be able to finally figure out the cause and know the ways on how you can get rid of it. 


    1.    Acne growing in your cheek has something to do with the respiratory system. If you consider yourself as a smoker then you better quit this habit and live a healthier lifestyle. Aside from smoking, being exposed to areas with high level of air pollution can also be a probable cause. Another reason why you have acne in your cheeks is due to a poor hygiene. Change your pillow covers regularly and sanitize your things including your cellular phones.

    2.    Acne found near your chin or along your jawline can be caused or due to hormonal imbalance. One way to counter hormonal imbalance is by taking the right type of contraceptive pills. However if you started taking pills and noticed acnes growing on his area then it could be the reason as well. Better change your pill and ask your doctor about it.

    3.    The pimple staying all over your nose has something to deal with your heart. This can be reduced by eating less meat and spicy foods.

    4.    Acnes that are growing just along your eyebrows or in between could be due to allergic reaction. This region reacts immediately if you have been exposed or ingested something that you might be allergic with.

    5.    Your forehead is the widest area in your face next to your cheeks. There could be multiple reasons why you develop acnes on it. If you often use hair products such as gel, hairspray, or hair wax and others that need to stay in your head for the entire day, then any of these could be the culprit. Moreover another reason for the acnes in your forehead is due to stress. You will know that you’re really stressed out if you see pimples growing on this area.

    6.    This may sound odd, but some people actually acquire or develop pimples near the ear region or even inside the ears. This indicates problems in the kidneys. You might not experience any problems with your kidneys or symptoms perhaps, but if your start having  persistent pimples along your ears then you should have yourself checked right away.

    The Black Nazarene has many names. In Spanish it is called the Nuestro Padre Jesus Nazareno. In Filipino it is known as Mahal na Itim na Nazareno or Itim na Nazareno. But its formal name in English is “Our Father Jesus Nazarene”. The black Nazarene is wooden sculpture of Jesus Christ. It is a life-sized figure carrying the cross. Filipino Catholics believe the wooden figure to be possessed with miraculous nature. In the beginning the Black Nazarene had a fair complexion. But because of a fire that burned the ship it was carried on, it turned black. Luckily, the sculpture survived. The sculptor of the image has always been unanimous. According to history, it was brought to Manila from Acapulco, Mexico via a galleon ship.      Originally, the Black Nazarene had an identical twin sculpture which was brought to Manila. This is found in the Intramuros district church records. It is said that the first one kept in Bagumbayan’s San Nicolas de Tolentino church before it was transferred to Intramuros. Unfortunately the Battle of Manila in 1945 destroyed this first image of the Black Nazarene when a bomb hit it. By then, the other sculpture was placed in the Quiapo church where some people thought it to be the original one. In the year 1650 Pope Innocent X gave his approval of the Black Nazarene for veneration as Sacramental. He also gave the permission to the Confraternity of the Most Holy Jesus Nazarene.      Filipino Catholics and those who relate to the Passion of Christ venerate the Black Nazarene. Most of them would relate their hardships to the struggles that were experienced by Jesus himself such the one presented in the image of the statue. Devotees clap their hands after the offering of mass at the shrine as a sign of homage.      Three processions take place each year when the Black Nazarene is taken out for veneration. The procession takes place on New Year’s Day, January 9 and Good Friday. January 9 processions commemorate the transferring of the Nazarene to Quiapo church. On that day, the image is carried out to the street in a carriage called the “andas” which means “to go forward” in Spanish. The devotees would walk barefoot and wear maroon colored clothes as an act of reminiscing Jesus when he went to Mount Calvary. The carriage is tied with a rope which men would pull. In the past only men were allowed to pull the ropes but recently female devotees joined in the act. The Catholics would touch the image hoping for a miracle to happen. Some people allegedly have even been reported to have had their diseases cured after contact with the Nazarene. Because of this, desperate devotees who can’t get near the statue would throw their towels at the guards requesting them to rub it on the image hoping that its miracles would rub in the cloth. The procession of the Black Nazarene on feast day is known to be a fatal one because of the heat, fatigue and the massive numbers of devotees reaching to millions.     Fortunately, when the number of devotees rose to 8 million, the route on the 9th January was altered to a much wider street located at the Quirino Grandstand in Rizal Park. This is also the first place where the Nazarene was enshrined. At the end of the day, the statue is returned to the church. In contrast to this veneration, the other two commemoration of the Black Nazarene on New Year’s Day and Good Friday is a solemn one.
    If you are reading this then you are most likely a middle child who is looking for confirmation that you really feel special because of your controversial birth order. Although less attention is given to middle children during child rearing, middle children became an interesting target for research because of their complicated situation. Children who were born on such order have great qualities especially when it comes to coping and socialization. But what are the most common traits that makes up a middle child? Here is the list: 1.    A part of you will always feel that nobody cares about you – it is the most fundamental feeling that the middle children share. It starts when you just don’t know who or what you should be. The parents are busy making your older sibling responsible and at the same time they are busy looking after and enjoying your younger sibling.  2.    You were used to being alone but you are not even sad about it – although not all middle children are introverts, there is a strong force that pushes a middle child to enjoy a moment of himself or herself to meditate or to think of plans especially when a decision has to be made.  3.     You talk to yourself vocally – although it wasn’t intentional, most middle kids were not given the chance to voice out their opinion because it is the job of the older sibling and such decisions are actually made for the benefit of the youngest child. In a way, middle children have been used to voice out their thoughts to their selves alone. They do it because they actually value listening to opinion since they weren’t given that chance when they were young. 4.     You always think that you are not your parents’ favorite – parental biases will always take place no matter how many times parents say that they don’t have favoritism among their children. Meanwhile, the middles would voluntarily take the place of not being the favorite child or the less appreciated one because they have been used to sacrifice  ever since they became a middle child. 5.    It always comes to you to consider other people’s feelings before you make any decision – although this may sound too kind this is actually true for almost all middle kids. Since they were used to get caught in the middle they learned how it feels to be on top of someone and at the same time find themselves in the bottom.  6.     You feel a bit distant and secretive to your own family – this is a thing that only middle children could understand. It may sound rebellious but it is not. Since they were used being left behind or that their opinions don’t really matter at all, they become cautious in opening up or trusting a family member.     
     A few days after the recent launching of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7, several complaints were already raised against one of the most anticipated smartphones of today’s era. Due to the severity of the issue Samsung decided to replace all sold units of galaxy note 7. It was when the first few customers of the product experienced issues with its battery. It happens to overheat during the charging of device. It actually explodes making it a very hazard one when it comes to safety and security issues. People are now questioning how was it able to pass the quality control standards? To note, this is the first time that Samsung experienced this kind of incident. Is it a sign that Samsung is now lowering its quality to take lead on its number one adversary? Definitely this occurrence stained Samsung’s most valued reputation.     It is such dismay that Samsung wasn’t able to detect this problem before launching it to the public. Aside from the recall for sold items, marketing of Galaxy Note 7 has been stopped for the meantime. People are now confused as to how their devices can be replaced and how long would it take them to wait. As of the moment Galaxy Note 7 has already sold quite a number of units.      According to some tech analysts, Samsung was trying to get ahead of the release of Iphone 7; unfortunately it turned out to be a disaster instead of advancing from its opponent. However several people would still want to wait for the release of the new device provided that all issues shall be resolved before making it available to the public.     With this scenario, one could essentially realize the downside of being too excited and hunching for the release of the latest device. Although it pays off being updated, not to mention showing off its newest features, but how are these people going to deal with their devices? Returning their devices doesn’t mean they can also have their money back. Rather they need to wait for a certain period of time before they can eventually have their paid items back unto their hands.      Several memes surfaced in the internet and although it may seem ridiculous, you will surely get it on point. Will Galaxy Note lovers remain loyal to their adored devices? We will find out in the next few days.   
    A human being is a social animal. Regardless of the situation a person would always want to have someone to be with. Nobody wants to be left behind. However not all people are lucky enough to find their companions or best friends in life because of varied reasons. But who says only a human being can complete another human being? Dogs are great companions too and they have earned the title of being man’s best friend since time immemorial.      If you are thinking of having a dog and you don’t have any breed in particular to choose from it is best to have a rescue dog. A rescue dog is basically a dog which came from sanctuaries or those that were saved from being abandoned. These types of dogs have no definite breed at all. You might never able to trace its pedigree and its bloodline; however they are as special as those being commercialized in pet stores.      The best thing about choosing rescue dogs is that you are giving them the second chance to live a life that they have been wishing for. There are only few people who would choose to adopt dogs rather than shop. This only means that there are also only few dogs that would be given the chance to have their forever home. It is also heartbreaking to know that not all shelters practice the no-kill policy. When rescued dogs remain in the shelter for quite long already, they are euthanize or being put to sleep without even experiencing the joy of being part in a family.      Adopting a dog from shelters could be the best decision you can ever think of. If you are longing for a companion or a best friend, they are just perfect. These dogs have painful experiences in their past but they are still hopeful to find that special person who will prove to them that dogs are indeed man’s best friend.      By getting a rescue dog, you are helping organizations to continue their goals in putting an end to animal cruelty and animal neglect. If you are thinking that dogs that came from shelters are problematic dogs then you are wrong. Although most of them are strays, these dogs were given the medication they needed before they are released and are set for adoption. It is also a protocol for any shelter to spay and neuter every rescue dog under their facility. By doing this, dogs are protected from unplanned pregnancies and over population which then may result to neglect.     There are several animal welfare groups in the Philippines such as the Philippine Animal Rescue Team (http://www.philanimalrescue.org/) where you can finally meet your new best friend. Pay them a visit now; they are all waiting for you.
