Animal owners have urged authorities to allow the rescue of as many animals as possible even as Taal Volcano remained under alert level 4 which meant a possible hazardous eruption. While the volcano remains risky and a large number of villagers are housed in shelters, officials have started to discuss post-eruption recovery.

Renato Sodium, head of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), said that although the volcano seemed calm, underground volcanic activity shows the opposite, so the alert level, set on January 12, remains at 4 out of 5, reports Efe news.
However, seismologists have warned the volcano could imminently unleash a much bigger blast, putting at risk the lives of anyone in the 14-kilometre (nine-mile) radius "danger zone" that surrounds it.
These were the details of the news Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed's message to the Philippines for this day.
Several buildings in lakeside towns near Taal volcano, located about 70 km (45 miles) south of the capital, were destroyed as heavy ash weighed makeshift roofs and toppled trees, and tens of thousands of people have fled their homes. It also serves as the only drainage outlet of the Taal Lake, a large body of freshwater that fills the caldera of the volcano.
Twins sign Josh Donaldson for up $100M
Last season with the Braves Donaldson was plus-15, second best at his position in the Major League Baseball . The Twins went 101-61 last season to win the division but were swept out of the playoffs by the Yankees.
Agoncillo town was among the areas badly hit by the eruption.
Phivolcs reported that frequent volcanic earthquakes around Taal - 714 since the eruption began, 175 of them noticeable - indicate that magma continues to rise to the surface from the subsoil, which can lead to an eruption.
"If the magma reaches the crater, it could cause a strong explosion".
"The PNP disaster response operations now involve practically all Luzon-based Police Regional Offices and Search and Rescue-capable National Support Units", said Gamboa on Monday. Philippine officials said Sunday the government will no longer allow vil.
The island has always been declared a national park by the government and is not accessible to permanent villages.
Although Taal is one of the world's smallest active volcanoes, it can be deadly.
