CITY OF MALOLOS- The Provincial Government of Bulacan through the Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO) spayed and castrated a total of 231 cats and dogs during the Veterinary Medical Mission held at The Pavilion, Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center in this city last Wednesday.
According to PVO Head Dr. Voltaire G. Basinang, the program aims to open the eyes of Bulakenyo pet lovers to responsible pet ownership.
“Dito natuturuan natin silang maging responsableng tagapag-alaga ng aso at pusa. Dahil doon maiiwasan natin ang rabies, maiiwasan din natin ang pagdami ng mga aso at pusang gala,” the provincial veterinarian said.
Basinang also said that the free neutering is available in their office located inside the Provincial Capitol Compound every Monday.
Meanwhile, Daisy Delos Santos from San Pablo, City of Malolos, with two adopted cats and who brought her neighbor’s cat to the event thanked the Provincial Government for programs intended to help pet owners in the province.
“Sa aming mga pet lover, napakalaking tulong nito dahil libre ito kaya pasalamat kami na may mga ganitong programa. At least hindi na kami mag-aalala kakaisip na gumagala-gala ang mga pusa namin,” she said.
The Veterinary Medical Mission is in partnership with the veterinary offices of the local governments of City of Baliwag, Paombong, and Pulilan; Vets Love Nature, Philippine Veterinary Medical Association, and the Univet Nutrition and Animal Healthcare Company (UNAHCO).
