Kapuso actress Carla Abellana, known for her advocacy on animal rights and welfare, expressed her grief over the death of an adopted dog.
Abellana was devastated as she recalled the unfortunate day on her Instagram posts yesterday, Nov. 21. She also mentioned having earlier assisted a couple needing help on the surgery of their dog.
“Just this morning I paid for the surgery and medication of a Chihuahua mix from Bohol to help save him. His owner didn’t have enough money to have him treated and I couldn’t say no to helping them out. Thank goodness he survived and is now back home,” Abellana recalled.
Abellana’s joy and relief for that dog did not last long. Hours after, she had to attend to her own adopted dog.
“Little did i know that hours later I would rush my own WING to the Vet to try to save him as well. Except this time I wasn’t able to. I failed,” she said. “Why is it that I am able to help save other animals and not my own, Lord?”
With Wing gone, Abellana is “trying to find comfort in his sister, Fly, making sure she doesn’t get confused or too lonely without her brother.”
“They were inseparable, you see. That’s why I adopted them together. While I try to apologize and comfort Fly, who keeps hiding in the corner of the living room or under our bedroom sofa, I fall asleep while crying on Wing’s bed, with his favorite pillow,” she narrated.
