BORACAY ISLAND, July 1 (PNA) — The Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO) in coordination with the Malay Veterinary Office and the veterinarian students of the Aklan State University here held a spay and neuter campaign for dogs in this resort island on June 29-30.
Dr. Ronald Lorenzo of the PVO said that the June 29 activity was held at the Barangay Manoc Manoc Plaza for Boracay-based dogs while June 30 was held in mainland Aklan.
Spaying and neutering are routine, affordable surgeries that can prevent thousands of animals from being born, only to suffer and struggle to survive on the streets, be abused by cruel or neglectful people, or be euthanized in animal shelters for lack of a loving home.
Recently, Boracay residents complained of stray dogs at the white beach.
The Department of Health has declared this resort island as a rabies-free area. (PNA)
