- She even took care of aspins and spoil them
- One of her very popular pet is Panda who is lucky enough to sleep in a Hermes blanket
Heart Evangelista loves animals. According to her she loved animals even when she was still young and wanted to be a veterinarian.
Like her, her dad is a dog lover. Heart's latest campaign is animal welfare advocacy concentrating with "Aspins" or "Asong Pinoys" in Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).
They wanted to change how the people call the street dogs. Instead of "askal," they should be called "Aspins."
"I grew up with a lot of dogs. Siguro mga 20 plus mga aso namin sa bahay, so lumalaki ako na iba-iba aso namin. Meron kaming aspin, meron kaming German Shepherd—iba-iba sila. I grew with that talaga, so that’s why bata pa lang ako gusto ko nga maging vet dati dahil doon, " she said.
Heart already took care of aspins and treated them just like how she treated dogs with different breeds.
"It’s really part of my purpose to change the way people think about aspins...
"Ever since before, we already had aspins, they weren’t considered to be the doorbell of the house, the alarm.
"They really slept with us, so parang for me, it was very normal…"
Her avid followers know Panda, an aspin who always grace Heart's Instagram account. Panda was only a puppy when Heart's dad found her in Batangas.
She even begged for her husband to allow her to take Panda in.
"Nagkaroon ako ng feeling na hindi ko pala siya kaya ibigay."
"Iniyakan ko pa si Chiz, ang dami na naming aso sa bahay, so binalik yung kumuha sa kanya and then napunta siya sa akin."
KAMI also learned from PEP that Heart loves spoiling her pets.
"She grew up, not really good situation. I want to give her a really good life," the Kapuso star said.
She gives them everything they need without minding how much it would cost.
"Sky is the limit. I don’t have a budget for them. I definitely take good care of them.
"For example, if I were to tie up with a brand, I don’t charge as much as long as I get good supply of dog food, shampoo.
"I use it for [my pets] and I also donate it. I make it work, and I make sure that I use my being an artista to also help them."
Panda became more sociable according to Heart. She used to hide under the sofa but she is now comfortable with people and other dogs around. Panda is lucky enough to sleep on a PHP81,000 Hermès blanket.
