Heart Evangelista has always loved animals.
As an advocate of pet adoption, she frequently posts photos of stray dogs and cats in need of homes. In fact, her dog Panda was once an aspin (Asong Pinoy), until Heart adopted him. She loves Panda so much, that she even makes him wear luxury scarves! Heart even featured Panda on a t-shirt she designed in collaboration with a clothing brand.
Today, Heart took to Instagram to reveal a project that she has long wanted to do. The photo features her standing in a tree-filled lot.
"As you all know, I’ve always had a soft spot for animals and it’s a dream of mine to be able to do more to champion their welfare," Heart said in the caption. "This will be the site of one special endeavor that is near and dear to my heart— building a facility which provides services such as spaying, neutering, tagging and shots, and a community that welcomes animals and treats them with love. This is step one and I am already brimming with excitement for this special project and I can’t wait to finally turn this dream into reality! Doing this one step at a time until we get there."
Heart once dropped in May what felt like a teaser of the animal welfare facility:
"Hey there, little cutie! Welcome to the Big Heart Foster Home! Hehe. Kidding! Although I do wish I had a real foster home for animals. Maybe someday in the future."
Aww! You really are a protector of animals, Heart!
