Each year, millions of cats and dogs are euthanized because there aren’t enough homes for them. During the last years, probably months, of their lives they are left in a shelter alone, confused, sad, and lonely. Local organizations like the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) and CARA Philippines are encouraging Filipinos to #AdoptDontShop. Adopting a pet will help you save an animal’s life and give it a second chance at a home and a family.

Interested in adopting yours? Log on to PAWS Website and CARA Philippines’ Facebook page, you might meet the next love of your life. If you aren’t capable of adopting, these organizations also welcome volunteers to help with the animals!

Panda Ongpauco-Escudero is probably the luckiest dog alive right now, living her best life fancier than our best days as humans. Heart Evangelista adopted her aspin way back in 2015 and has since shown the world how she enjoys pampering her dog with sweaters, comfortable carriers, and lavishing all her attention and love toward Panda. Panda goes with Heart everywhere including events and out of town trips. She even has an Instagram page that you should most definitely follow.

A post shared by JONA (@jona) on

Jonalyn Viray has a big voice and a soft heart for animals without homes. Her first rescue was in 2009 when an abandoned kitten wouldn’t leave their front house. Since then, she has adopted and rescued other dogs and cats, the most remarkable of which is Capones.

While Jonalyn was in Capones Island, Zambales, she saw a dog drowning in the middle of the sea and later found out that the owner of the dog was trying to poison and drown it. Jonalyn swam to get the dog and emerged from the sea with a convulsing dog in her arms. Unfortunately, the dog didn’t make it but that’s how we see Jonalyn’s dedication in rescuing animals that need food and shelter and love the most.

As if we don’t have enough reasons to love Chris Evans, he goes ahead and shows us he’s such a softie for dogs too. He tells PEOPLE.com that while he was shooting for his 2017 film, Gifted, he was walking down the aisle of a pound and saw Dodger. He thought the cute dog didn’t belong there so he “snagged him” and the rest is history well documented in Evans’ Twitter profile. Dodger is one lucky dog!

She sweetly captioned the photo with “Eyes are overrated, cuz you dont need em to snuggle,” and with the hashtags #adoptseniordogs and #adoptdontshop. Kirsten, who also has another adopted dog named Lola, tells purewow.com that getting a dog should be “less about the purchase and more about connecting with someone who also needs some companionship.”
