Las Piñas City gov’t launches ‘fur-ever’ home and mass anti-rabies vaccination

The Las Pinas City government relaunched a pet adoption project called “fur-ever homes” to give abandoned animals the chance to find new homes and “hoomans.”

Mayor Imelda Aguilar said the City Veterinary Office has six aspin dogs (Asong Pinoy) and seven puspin cats (Pusang Pinoy) under their custody and are ready for adoption.

Aguilar said the dogs and cats were rescued, abandoned, surrendered, and treated at the City Veterinary Office.

She said for dogs and cat lovers who wish to adopt, they may coordinate with Dr. August Michael Basangan, head of the City Veterinary Office at telephone number 8225-2911 or at 0965-653-6449.

Arlynne Bayot, animal health and welfare head of the Veterinary Office, said those who wish to adopt dogs and cats must sign an adoption paper and a surprise monitoring will be conducted to ensure the animal they adopted are being properly cared for.

Bansangan said the Animal Welfare Act must also be followed by those who want to adopt dogs or cat. The Act calls for freedom from hunger, thirst, discomfort, pain, injury, and disease.

He said that matching is also being conducted by their office between the pet and the person adopting it.

The mayor said the barangay mass anti-rabies vaccination was also launched.

Aguilar said the City Veterinary Office is scheduling four areas in each barangays for the conduct of barangay mass anti-rabies vaccination.
