Gretchen’s Story

It was a peaceful afternoon in Karangalan Village, Cainta. Peaceful enough that the store owner didn’t expect a terribly wounded dog to hobble in, ears and tail low from the pain. Gretchen was a pitiful sight to behold. She had lived a hard life on the streets, and it seemed it was coming to an end, if not for the shop owner’s presence of mind to request a rescue from PAWS. Our rescuers arrived in record time. Gretchen has since recovered, and though she hasn’t forgotten her time on the streets, she has learned to be a happy dog again.

Ideal Home

Gretchen is an average dog with just the usual needs — food, water, a roof above her head, and a loving human to bond with. She will enjoy long walks and lots of play time!
