LOOK: Korina Sanchez in search of new owner for Chow Chow
TV host Korina Sanchez is in search of a “furever” home for an abandoned dog that was almost killed by its former owners because they could no longer afford to take care of their pet.
Sanchez said that whoever adopts the 7-month-old Chow Chow named Cotton will get an “adoption kit” from the TV host, including a dog bed, shampoo, brush, bowls, collar and leash, sample dog food, vitamins and supplements, as per her Instagram post last Monday, July 13.
The TV host apparently stopped the dog from getting euthanized, said to be a painless way of killing animals. Sanchez also thanked veterinarian Ally Almario for refusing to euthanize the Chow Chow. The veterinary clinic is currently housing the abandoned puppy while it is still in search of a new home.
“So, here I am knocking on your door, whoever hero you are in need of more love in your life, and maybe would like to give Cotton his forever home,” Sanchez said.
Cotton is also healthy, vaccinated and dewormed, according to Sanchez.

Whoever adopts Cotton gets a fee adoption kit from us: a dog bed, dpg bowls, collar and leash, sample food, vitamins and supplements, and shampoo/brush. Just to help get you started. Cotton is healthy, vaccinated and dewormed. Just email me at [email protected] My assistant will contact you for an interview. No fees required. Sige naaaaaa…. be a hero to a voiceless future member of your family now.💚🐶😻🏡 Thank you Vet Ally Almario of Safurry Veterinary clinic for taking care of Cotton in the meantime and also refusing to kill Cotton.ADVERTISEMENT
After an overwhelming amount of pet-lovers reached out to Sanchez’s call, the “Rated K” host promised that she will find a good home for Cotton, but it might take some time.
“Right now, we are CLOSING the applications temporarily, until we find Cotton’s perfect family,” Sanchez announced yesterday, July 14.
The host also listed down some of the qualities she is looking for in Cotton’s new owner.
“Please know that I prefer that my dogs should be able to go inside the house and will sleep INSIDE THE HOUSE, and not in a cage,” she said. “Chows need to breathe, and dapat malamig or maaliwalas ang surroundings kasi makapal ang fur (the surroundings need to be cool and bright because Chows have thick fur).”
Cotton’s new owner should also be responsible enough to take the Chow Chow to the veterinarian clinic for regular check-ups. The pet must be groomed regularly. Sanchez also does not want the dog to be tied in chains.
“You also must know we will neuter Cotton before we give him away,” she said. “Ayaw namin na gagawin [siyang] palahian or negosyo.” (We do not want him to be used for breeding or for profit.)
Sanchez said she checks on the dogs she lets go for adoption. Those who applied to be Cotton’s new owners will be called for a short interview.

Hello all lovers of Cotton, the abandoned baby chowhow! Soooo many of you responded to my callout for help in getting Cotton into his furever home and family. Wow, thanksssss….Now I'm sure na sa dinami-dami ninyong nag-apply, I'll find at least one good home for Cotton. But please give me time to sift through all applicants. Right now, we are CLOSING the applications temporarily, until we find Cotton’s perfect family.🐶🏡 Many also responded to adopting Mocha, if you remember. But, shempre, isa lang ang napili. And to all those who are now in my list of applicants, kung hindi sa inyo mapunta si Cotton at hindi rin nakuha si Mocha dati, please follow me as I post more lovable and loving pet dogs for adoption. I'm sure may mapipili kayo as all these dogs are so mabait and lovable.🐶❤️🐶❤️ Please know that I prefer that my dogs should be able to go inside the house and will sleep INSIDE THE HOUSE, and not in a cage. Chows need to breathe, and dapat malamig or maaliwalas ang surroundings kasi makapal ang fur. You must be responsible and bring the pet to a vet regularly for checkups, will groom this baby dog kasi ang chow kailangan inaalagaan talaga ang grooming. You will not tie the dog in chains okay? Bawal sa akin yan. You also must know we will neuter Cotton before we give him away. Ayaw namin na gagawin syang palahian or negosyo.🤨 We also check the dogs I adopt out. Until we feel confident you really can take care of the pet, we will be calling once in a while. So, please wait for our call to you for a short interview okay?❤️🐶🏡😻Meantime, I hope the rest of you are open to adopting other pets I'll be posting here. Loving and being loved by a pet makes for the #BestLife💚
The TV host previously put up a call for adoption for a pitbull named Mocha and was able to find the dog a new family.

Great news to end my day today: If you remember Mocha, my beloved fostered sweet pitbull from CARA‘s shelter in Quezon…Well, I received so many applications from you guys willing to take her in and finally give her the furever home she deserves. After interviews and such, the team finally awarded Mocha to Jenny Marie Laxa and her partner from Makati City. 👏👏👏 They sooo love Mocha, visited her in the home I temporarily housed her in and, now, they are together. Lucky Mocha. She waited 7 years since she was rescued from an illegal dog fighting ring and was abused by the operator. But she is the SWEETEST. In the years I took her in and cared for her, my boys had so fallen in love with her. Now, she is home. At last. thank you, JM for being a hero.🐶 And to all those who applied for Mocha. Fret not. Soooo many other beautiful healthy and lovable dogs I rescued and foster that I will send you soon for you to consider. Please? I have your email messages and we will definitely be in touch! Be ready to be a hero💚
Those who might not be selected to adopt Cotton should not be discouraged, according to Sanchez, as the host promised to keep posting more lovable dogs up for adoption. JB
