    Thank for this, Doc Marose! Yes, friends, please consider adopting a pet first! I can be one of those you can ask for Task #2. 🙂

    What a great article! I sincerely hope that many people here will read it. I do appreciate the links to some dog shelters / rescue organizations.

    I certainly will adopt an other dog.

    My best wishes,
    Werner

    As mentioned in my above comment I was going to adopt an other rescued dog. I started this adoption process with PART, the Philippine Animal Rescue Team. I fulfilled their arduous requirements, got a visit appointment and traveled from Pangasinan to their shelter in San Jose del Monte in Bulacan province.

    We were expecting to speak with the competent and deciding person, but were informed that she was not present. So we ended up speaking with one not so informed employee, who could not answer all our questions .

    We looked at the dogs we liked based on the photos on their website and chose 2, later expanded this to 3 dogs.

    Right from the start the communication per email with PART was very difficult. Question were not answered and I managed to speak with the manager Mrs. Rowena Suzara by phone only once. During this phone call I was informed that suddenly 2 of our choices were put on ERLICHIA medication doxycycline antibiotic for 1 month. So we agreed to wait for 1 month until the end of this treatment to make sure that we would get healthy dogs and not infect our pack of 6 dogs ( all rescued / adopted dogs ).

    This is very surprising as the one senior dog Marsh we want to adopt has been in that shelter since 2012 and only now their vet from Manila discovered that she has Ehrlichia or has been exposed to it earlier.

    Neither Mrs. Suzara nor the shelter answer any questions by emails and for some mysterious reason since 2 weeks now they are not answering my phone calls or text messages either. The shelter mobile is switched off and the mobile of Mrs. Suzara rings but she does not pick it up.

    For some unknown reason to me they are now boycotting me like I have leprosy or something.I find these rude manners very disappointing and I keep on wondering why they are doing it.

    They do have a lady living in California USA – Mrs. Connie Langlois – who kindly answers some email questions but not all either.

    Has anybody encountered similar problems with these PART people? My email address is: werner_hauschild@yahoo.com

    The strange thing with PART is that most of their dogs have been in their shelter for many years, many since 2012
    and have not been adopted even though many are really good looking dogs. Maybe they for some reason really do not want to get them adopted?

    My best wishes,
    Werner Hauschild

    Werner again. In the meantime this bad situation has luckily been cleared up and my adoption process is continuing.

    I am very about it.

    My best regards,
    Werner

    Werner one more time.

    My prolonged adoption attempt with PART was a complete failure. It seems that they are not in the business of getting their dogs adopted at all, they just seem to be hoarding them for whatever purpose that may be.

    The shelter operation is being managed by a Rowena Suzara, who seriously lacks management skills. It is a very sad
    situation for all the nice dogs and cats spending the rest of their lives in the captivity of the stressful shelter ambience without love and dedication, eating lousy food and living in pretty unhygienic conditions due to alleged permanent lack of staff.

    My best regards,
    Werner Hauschild
