MANILA - An animal welfare group on Thursday appealed to the public for vehicles to transport rescued animals and volunteers as Taal Volcano continues to rumble.

"Marami pong nagvovolunteer sa amin kaso lacking po kami sa vehicles so di po kami pwede mag-dispatch basta, kailangan po namin ay maraming sasakyan," Guardians of the Fur coordinator Carissa Panaglima said.

Transportation is also needed for rescued horses, she added. Only 30 out of some 3,000 horses on Taal Volcano island have so far been rescued, according to the Philippine Animal Welfare Society.

Panaglima said the group has rescued animals from Lemery, Taal, Tanauan, Bauan in Batangas, and were sent to shelters in Laguna, Cavite, and Nasugbu and Sto. Tomas in Batangas.

Owners of rescued pets may claim their animals by contacting Guardians of the Fur in its official Facebook group or message Panaglima at 0915-830-9740.
