It’s a mouthful but not offensive anymore.

Barangay Capri Captain Christian Cando issued an apology online after drawing flak for his now-famous Oplan Dog-Hang drive, where he wants pet owners to surrender animals to authorities if they are unable to look after them properly.

Netizens and groups like the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) condemned the project branding, saying it promotes animal cruelty.

The campaign has since been renamed as “Oplan Kontra-Iresponsableng Pag-aalaga ng Hayop.”

“Paumanhin kung mayroon mang nasagasaang damdamin sa isyu na ito kontra sa mga IRESPONSABLENG TAGAPAG-ALAGA ng mga hayop o aso,” the politiko said as he clarified arguments raised against him.

“Nais bigyang diin ng pamunuang ito na wala ni isang aso ang namatay at mamamatay sa ilalim ng hakbanging ito tulad ng pag-aalala ng ilan, dahil kinokondena ng pamunuang ito ang anumang pananakit at pagpatay sa mga hayop lalo na sa mga aso,” he added.
