Controlling stray animals has always been an issue here on our roads. Be it provincial highways or major expressways, wandering cats, dogs, and other creatures are usually common sights.

For its part, Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) subsidiary MPT South is partnering with the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to address cases of stray animals along MPTC’s tollways.

MPTC and PAWS have just signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to implement a corporate social responsibility program dubbed ‘Love Pets, Save Lives.’ Through this program, MPTC and PAWS will conduct responsible pet ownership seminars, offer free spaying and neutering services, and provide free vitamins for cats and dogs of indigent pet owners. The CSR program will begin at the Don Galo Sports Complex in Parañaque City in partnership with the local government units of Barangay Don Galo and Barangay La Huerta.

“We at the Philippine Animal Welfare Society are honored to be partners of MPT South for its ‘Love Pets, Save Lives’ program,” said PAWS executive director Anna Cabrera. “It is the first of its kind for an expressway developer to launch an animal welfare program. This, in itself, breaks barriers and gives hope for an organization like PAWS—that more and more companies are seeing the wisdom of a PREVENTIVE approach to the stray problem.”
