The Zamboanga City Rabies Council, in coordination with the Office of the City Veterinarian (OCVet), will spearhead the observance of the Rabies Awareness Month in the city.
City Veterinarian Dr. Mario Arriola yesterday told members of the local media during the regular press briefing at City Hall that a series of activities has been lined up for the whole month of March.
The celebration will kick off on Wednesday, March 1, with a motorcade from Pettitt Barracks to Tetuan Central School where a short program and a ceremonial vaccination of dogs will follow.
In a bid to raise responsible pet owners, participants will be entertained with an educational dog show featuring the various breeds of dogs in the city while an educational film will be screened for Grades 3-5 pupils.
For its part, the OCVet will continue its Oplan Alis Rabies, a vaccination program that started in January. So far, the office has conducted a total of ten (10) sorties where over 3,000 dogs have been vaccinated.
March is declared Rabies Awareness Month pursuant to Executive Order 84, series of 1999. (Claudine Uniana)
