MANILA—People looking for a meaningful way to spend Valentine's Day need not look far.

The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is organizing a date-for-a-cause with rescued Taal horses on Wednesday and Thursday, February 12 and 13, at the Department of Agriculture compound in Lipa City.

"Simple 'date' lang naman," said PAWS education officer Sharon Bengzon-Yap. "They can feed the horses and have Batangas coffee and cookies at the venue."

Horseback riding won't be allowed, though.

Interested participants need to pay P1,000 to reserve a slot, excluding transportation expenses.

"It's just a simple way to contribute to the Taal horses' care and get to meet the beneficiaries of their donation," said Bengzon-Yap.

Proceeds from the event will go directly to the PAWS horses’ rehabilitation fund.

More information about the event is posted on the PAWS Facebook page.
