Non-government organization for animal rights PAWS Philippines, shared in an Instagram post an update about the dog rescued by actor Daniel Matsunaga. 

Naming the dog Dandan, after the Be My Lady star, PAWS related how Daniel rescued it from a man who wanted to slaughter the animal.  

“Dandan was suffering from a skin disease when he had been sold off by his former owner to a neighbor, who intended to slaughter him for meat. The hero in question heard about the incident and came to his rescue, offered to buy off the dog and then sought the assistance of PAWS in rehabilitating the dog and more importantly, filing a case against the dog's former owner and the man who intended to slaughter the poor creature.”


ADOPT ME ANY DAY.?? You would not believe who actually came to this dog's rescue when he needed a hero! Dandan was suffering from a skin disease when he had been sold off by his former owner to a neighbor who intended to slaughter him for meat. The hero in question heard about the incident and came to his rescue, offered to buy off the dog and then sought the aasistance of PAWS in rehabilitating the dog and more importantly, filing a case against the dog's former owner and the man who intended to slaughter the poor creature. We'll give you a few clues on who this hero is -- you see him on TV weekday mornings; he is not Filipino but he admits to having a "Pusong Pinoy"; he is also one of PAWS's volunteer endorsers, promoting our campaign for the spay and neuter of pets along with his gorgeous sister. In fact, Dandan's name is from his rescuers nickname. Guessed it yet??? ************ Thanks to the efforts of one concerned individual, Dandan was saved and the animal offenders who sought to do him harm are now facing criminal charges. Now all he needs now is a forever-home. Come pay Dandan a visit at the PAWS shelter so you can see just how lovable he is. --- We have always believed that there is never a reason to have to buy a pet from a store or a breeder when there are countless of homeless yet perfectly loving and lovable animals in shelters and on the streets. If you think you are ready to give a rescued homeless animal a second chance at life, our adoption procedures can be found on the FAQ section of this page and our website - www.paws.org.ph Help us spread the word by sharing this post on your timeline. If not you, someone you know could be the forever human a shelter animal has been waiting for. Warm licks and soft purrs from our shelter dogs and cats for your help.?????? #adoptdontshop #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #rescued #rescueddog #aspin #animallover #advocacy #animalshelter #doglover #dogs #manila #asia #philippines #pawsphilippines
