Franky is the lord of the manor. He’s a sizeable dog for Philippine standards and he reigns with calm superiority. He’s very sociable and a sweet boy really, but he’s a bit cheeky too. His former owner let him roam so he was picked up by the dog catchers a number of times already. When a friend confronted the owner but he showed no sign of remorse, the friend decided that he was better off with us, so she rescued him from the dog pound.

Franky came from Boracay Island, which is one of the main tourist spots in the Philippines. Sadly, years of neglect had rendered the island into an unmanageable mess with no infrastructure to back up the endless flow of incoming tourists. Therefore the government decided early 2018 that the island had to be closed to tourists for 6 months to start a cleanup program. This in turn led to many Filipino workers returning to their home islands, leaving any animals that they were feeding behind. Many of these unfortunate animals ended up in the infamous Boracay dog pound, where they are euthanised after a few days. AARRC took in over 50 of these poor souls, rescuing their lives.
