The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) pushes its KLIP program one step further through its photo exhibition in partnership with Local Edition Coffee & Tea café

Café and art space Local Edition hosts an installation entitled "Dog Tales" showcasing just some of the animals PETA has helped through its "Kapon/Ligation Immediately, Please" (KLIP) program. The exhibition is on display at the café's Perea branch in Makati and its Serendra branch in Bonifacio Global City through May 24. 

Visitors to the café can see photos of animals such as Ating, a dog who lives with her indigent guardian in a public cemetery in Pasay. When PETA staffers first met her, she was almost completely hairless because of mange, but her loyal human companion still slept next to her every night. She also had a cancerous tumor that was growing rapidly. Her guardian loves her so much that she cried when Ating had to be taken to the hospital for treatment. But thanks to PETA's care, she's now fully recovered. The group sterilized and vaccinated her, as well as hundreds of other animals living in the cemetery. 

 

"Kapon and ligation are the most important actions that we can take to save cats and dogs from the suffering and death caused by overpopulation," says PETA campaigner Jana Sevilla. "Thanks to Local Edition, you can enjoy a soy latte while helping PETA prevent thousands of animals from being born only to suffer and struggle to survive on the streets. Your coffee can truly save lives!"

Jackie Arceo, co-owner and manager of Local Edition, adds "helping animals is close to my heart and Local Edition is all about collaborating with the community. I believe in what PETA is doing so any way we can help and contribute to a good cause is definitely something we will support."

 

(c) PETA. "Brusco was a thin and sickly puppy who never seemed to grow no matter how much he ate. Thanks to care provided by PETA and the dedication of his guardians, he has transformed into an outgoing dog who loves scratches behind the ears and follows PETA staffers around the cemetery where his family lives whenever we’re in the area for KLIP."
(c) PETA. When we first met Ating, she suffered from a rapidly growing cancerous tumor and was almost completely hairless from sarcoptic mange (galis), but her loyal guardian, who camps out at a public cemetery, still slept next to her every night. Her guardian loves her so much that she cried when the dog had to be taken to the hospital for treatment. Thanks to PETA’s care, Ating fully recovered and has been sterilized and vaccinated.
(c) PETA. King Kong is a cherished member of his family and likes to spend his days hanging out in the sari-sari store where his owners work. His guardians signed him up to get sterilized and vaccinated as soon as they learned about the services available to them—and when he was recently hit by a car and sustained a minor leg injury, PETA was there to advise the family on the dog’s care. We’re glad that he’s now back to his normal, happy self.
 

Customers who donate a minimum of PHP300 to the KLIP program will receive a free basic coffee or tea beverage, and with a minimum donation of PHP500, customers will receive a free large beverage of their choice.
