The Friends for the Protection of Animals was founded with the voiceless and helpless animals in mind. We believe that it is not enough to refrain from cruel acts, to have sympathy alone for the animals. We believe in being proactive. We can help many abused and needy animals through donations in kind and money. In 2010, the current directors of our organization decided to create Friends for the Protection of Animals to give everyone who is interested, the opportunity to help those in need.
The Friends for the Protection of Animals was organized very much like an animal rescue organization. We are connected by our shared goals. We do not operate a sheltering facility in the United States, although we have a Chapter and Associates in the Philippines, nor do we maintain regular office space. We work from our homes and we are always on call. We are in constant communication with each other. Our primary purpose is to usher tax-deductible donations from donors in the United States to the animal welfare organizations and specific animal rescuers of their choice in the Philippines or any other country.
Our Chapter & Associate organizations in the Philippines are:
Island Rescue Organization (IRO) - Cebu City, Cebu
Salamat Animal Rescue Center (SARC) - Catbalogan,Samar
Aklan Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation Center (AARRC) - Kalibo, Aklan
