CEBU CITY, Philippines— Help get these pups into new homes.
This is the plea of actress Nadine Lustre on her Instagram stories as she rescued five puppies who were left unattended around their area.
Nadine said these puppies were supposed to be tossed in the river nearby by their owner.
“The crew told us that the owner is planning to toss them in the river if no one would take them because there are ‘too many dogs’ around,” said Nadine.
Being a pet owner herself, this did not sit right with Nadine, and so she decided to temporarily take care of the puppies until she could find them a new home.

Nadine said this is her way of standing up against animal cruelty that is happening near her home.
She also said that she couldn’t stand the thought of letting these innocent pups get killed.
