Heart Evangelista is known for her extravagant lifestyle, lavish clothes, shoes, and jewelry. But she’s also known to be one of the biggest celebrity animal lovers.
And now she’s taking her love for animals to the next level by making her lifelong dream come true – building her own animal sanctuary in Sorsogon.
In an Instagram post, Heart stands at the site where a facility that will provide services such as spaying, neutering, tagging and shots to rescued animals will soon rise.
“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,” she said. “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!”
Heart has always been active in helping animals in need. In 2018 she collaborated with Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) for ‘Have a Heart for Aspins’, a campaign battling the discrimination against aspins or asong Pinoy. Heart herself has an adopted aspin named Pan-Pan.
Maria Panda Ongpauco-Escudero, or Pan-Pan, has starred in one of her vlogs. The video shows a glimpse of what it’s like to be the actress’ trusty side-kick.
This is not the first time her beloved dog was put in the limelight. Heart previously posted a selfie with Pan-Pan wearing an Hermes scarf worth over P40,000, which earned a lot of comments and reactions from her followers.
