Up-and-coming actress, Bela Padilla shared that she doesn’t usually celebrate her birthday but thought it would be a great way to bring people together for a cause. Making clear her affinity for animals, Bela chose to spend her birthday with the shelter dogs and animals at the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Quezon City, where she took part in a feeding activity together with her loyal “Belaver” fans.
“We picked PAWS as a venue for my birthday because I am strongly against animal cruelty. Being a pet owner myself, I have this deep compassion for animals,” Bela said. She wants to spread awareness about the plight of homeless and abused animals, and thought that bringing people to PAWS is her own little way of helping out.
