MANILA -- "To the 5 people who left her there to die... Shame on you."
Heart Evangelista made this statement on Instagram Stories on Monday as she helped rescue a dog that has been abandoned under the rain at the Bonifacio Global City Arts Center in Taguig.
Reacting to a Facebook post by a concerned citizen, the actress said she had the dog picked up by the animal welfare group Pawssion Project.
"She will have water and food to eat then will be brought to [the] vet. I will make sure she goes to school and have the best life. Good luck, karma is real, people. Hopefully, someone will give her a home," Evangelista said in a series of Instagram Stories photos showing the dog, which she named Cloud.
"Oh and thanks for making that rope on her head extra tight while she suffers under the rain," she added with sarcasm.
In an Instagram post, Pawssion Project said Cloud "is so traumatized" and would wake up every time she hears her rescuer move because "she does not want to be left alone."
"To our very dedicated rescuer Gab, thank you for going out of your way to rescue Cloud tonight! Thank you for fostering Cloud till Heart gets her," the group said.
A well-known animal lover, Evangelista previously worked with Pawssion Project to provide shelter to a homeless man who cares for stray dogs.
The actress serves as a spokesperson of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society, and has been working on putting up an animal welfare facility in Sorsogon.
