Iggy is another great example of how these marvellous native dogs recuperate. When she arrived, she was not only very mangy, but also afraid of people. It took us a while to earn her trust, but now that we have, she turned into a gorgeous girl that just loves to play, run and meet everybody that takes an interest. She’s a really fast runner.

Iggy 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.
