Pet adoption from dog pounds in the Philippines isn't something most people are aware of.
|Drop by the Marikina City Veterinary Office Impounding Area if you're planning to add a dog in your family.|
Did you know that you could adopt a pet from Marikina CVO's Impounding Area? According to Marikina City's website, pet adoption is best done during Fridays.
Did you know that the average cost of adoption there is at 500 php?
Did you also know that there are a lot of dogs there hoping to find their forever home? In fact, I've found a few purebred ones still waiting for someone to get them. Last I checked, there was a German Shepherd Pup, a chocolate brown Poodle and a Chow-chow who's just dying to get a chance on a second life.

But that's not the only interesting dog being kept in the Marikina City Veterinary Office Impounding Area, we also found a white (or cream colored) beauty who just stands up and wags its tail whenever a stranger approaches it. I couldn't explain the expression in that dog's eyes. I'm calling him/her Tuesday because that's when they caught him/her.

Now that you know... Before you go browsing through online websites for cute adorable purebreds and mixed breds, drop by your local pound. You might be surprised with what you may find.
A lot of people have posted their rants about Marikina's way of impounding dogs. Before you post your complaints, I suggest you read RA 9482: The Anti-Rabies Act, this article from PAWS titled My Dog is Taken to the Pound. Is this legal?, and a list of Philippine some local pounds around Metro Manila.
