Pilmico Animal Nutrition Corporation (Pilmico) extends donations to Compassion and Responsibility for Animals Welfare Philippines (CARA), a non-profit, non-governmental organization that advocates animal welfare including stray animal population control. 

Last March 30, Aboitiz Group’s food subsidiary Pilmico donated P500,000 pesos and 50 bags of pet food products from Maxime, Pilmico’s premium pet food brand. This aims to help CARA in their efforts to provide affordable veterinary consultations and low-cost neuter/spay operations.

Blessie Zarzuela, National Sales Manager of Maxime, said that Pilmico is in full support of the organization for the benefit of stray animals. “We, at Pilmico, believe that all of us must take care of the welfare of animals, especially our beloved pets. We are delighted to give CARA all the support we can provide because we firmly believe in their organization’s advocacies and sentiments when it comes to animal welfare,” she said. 

Pilmico’s donations will be used for the benefit of CARA’s spay and neuter operations and pit bull center, among others. 

CARA president Nancy Cu Unjieng said the monetary and in-kind donations will be dedicated to food and medicine for animals, spay and neuter operations, their pit bulls center’s expenses and staff’s salaries, among others. “CARA Welfare Philippines would like to extend our sincere gratitude to PILMICO Animal Nutrition for giving this generous amount to our organization, along with dog food. This donation will be allotted for the daily food of animals, medication, and veterinary expenses of our pit bulls center,” she said.

Apart from Zarzuela, representatives from Pilmico namely Jiggs Espadilla, Marketing Manager, and Leo Marko Valencia, Marketing Supervisor of Pilmico Pet Food Division were present during the turnover of the donation to CARA.
