Tiendesitas has partnered with Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Animal Industry (DA-BAI), and the Veterinary Services and City Health Departments of the local government of Pasig to celebrate Rabies Awareness Month this March.

The Rabies Awareness Month annual celebration is an activity of the National Rabies Prevention and Control Committee (NRPCC) and the Philippine Veterinary Medical Association (PVMA) in line with the objectives of Republic Act No. 9482 (Anti-rabies Act of 2007) aimed to protect and promote peoples’ right to health through various activities on prevention and eradication measures. The celebration’s theme is “Rabies-free na pusa’t aso, kaligtasan ng pamilyang Pilipino” for the next five years (2022-2027).

At the kick-off event, held on March 1 at the Tiendesitas Food Village Level 2, there were free anti-rabies vaccinations, pet consultations, and deworming for 500 dogs and cats. There were also exciting booths, lectures, and film viewing. Additional activities included spay and castration by the Veterinary Services Department of Pasig City for pre-registration on their Facebook page.
