Bela Padilla celebrates her birthday at PAWS

  • May 28, 2014

Bela Padilla, a self-confessed animal lover, chose PAWS (Philippine Animal Welfare and Society) as the venue for her birthday celebration. Together with the members of Belavers fan club, Bela went to the animal shelter to spend a meaningful yet fun-filled birthday celebration.

The party began with a quick briefing and introduction given by PAWS Shelter Director Heidi Guzon. This was followed by a comprehensive tour of the facility and ended with a hearty lunch.

The 24-year old actress, who is a proud owner of two Persian cats, revealed how she treats her pets. “Para silang mga babies ko, super lambing ako sa mga cats ko, mayroon natutulog sa kwarto ko, may natutulog sa bed ko,” she shared with a smile.  Bela also encouraged fellow pet lovers to adopt an abandoned pet as opposed to buying one. According to the actress, animals are like people, they need to feel loved and appreciated, too.  “Naiinis ako kapag nakakakita ako or nakakarinig ako ng stories about animal cruelty,” she revealed. “Kaya naisip ko para mas maging aware ang mga tao, i-hold ang birthday celebration ko sa PAWS.”

Bela’s birthday charity event was supported by Tempura Japanese Grill, Active White, Sundance, and Sweet Escape.
