A dog has been rescued by charity workers looking for animal survivors of the eruption of the Taal volcano.

Palakitik came “running up through the ash” when workers from Peta Asia arrived on the island on Wednesday.

The dog was well known to Peta staff from previous work they had done on the island, providing veterinary services to horses.

Although residents of the island were moved to safety when the volcano began to erupt on Sunday, many animals remained.

Peta workers arrived for the first time since the eruption on Wednesday and were unsure whether or not Palakitik was still alive.

Palakitik has now been taken off the island to receive veterinary care and according to Peta she will “be taken care of for the rest of her life”.
