DOG OWNER – A furparent and his dog were rescued amid the the flood in Marikina caused by Typhoon Ulysses.
Several areas in the Philippines were greatly affected by Typhoon Rolly. The said tropical storm left deaths and as well as millions worth of damages in infrastructures.
Another unfortunate incident recently took place. While some areas have yet to recover from the impacts of Rolly, another tropical storm, Typhoon Ulysses, entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
Typhoon Ulysses brought heavy rains to areas that have yet to recover from Rolly. Many houses were submerged in deep flood water that residents had to climb their rooftops while the water level increases.
Marikina is one of the cities greatly affected by Typhoon Ulysses. Mayor Marcy Teodoro has called the national government for help as many residents had to be rescued in their rooftops.
Evacuation operations were done prior to Ulysses’ onslaught but even the areas that are not prone to flood were reached by the flood. The city has 50 rubber boats but there were a lot of people to be rescued.
What delighted a lot of people is that many pet owners did not leave behind their pets amid the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses. They did everything they can not just for them to survive but for their pets to survive the flood as well.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, a dog owner in Marikina and his pet were rescued after being stuck amid the flood brought by Typhoon Ulysses. Manuel Lucas is renting a room in Provident Village together with his 1 1/2 year-old Collie Shepherd named Momo.
The 37-year-old man and his dog stayed in the house of their neighbor overnight amid the flooding according to the report. They were rescued and he is happy to have survived the calamity with his dog.
According to Luces, he will bring Momo with him to the evacuation center in case they cannot find a temporarily place where they can live yet. He is one of the many pet owners who really consider their pets as families.
