As you all know, I’ve always had a soft spot for animals and it’s a dream of mine to be able to do more to champion their welfare. This will be the site of one special endeavour that is near and dear to my heart— building a facility which provides services such as spaying, neutering, tagging and shots, and a community that welcomes animals and treats them with love. This is step one and I am already brimming with excitement for this special project and I can’t wait to finally turn this dream into reality! Doing this one step at a time until we get there. ✨🐶I am very honored to be part of what Sorsogon is building #BigHeart #SorsogonFirst #MahalKongSorsogon #LMxKamiseta
