MANILA - A total of 50 dogs and 15 cats set to be euthanized in Manila were rescued by animal welfare groups, Mayor Isko Moreno said Monday.

In a Facebook post, Moreno urged the public to "adopt, don't shop" as he thanked the PAWSsion Project and MBY Pet Rescue and Sanctuary for taking the animals in.

"Scheduled for euthanization po dapat ang mga aso at pusa 
na ito dahil napupuno na po ang Manila City Pound, buti na lang po'y nagmagandang loob po kayo," he said.

(The dogs and cats were scheduled for euthanization because there's no more space at the Manila City Pound. Thankfully, you did a good deed.)

"Sa mga pet lovers po, please, marami pong mga kawawang aso at pusa na nire-rescue sa kalye who deserve a new home and loving owners. Adopt, don't shop."

(To pet lovers, please there are many dogs and cats who need rescuing and deserve a new home and loving owners.)
