Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said the World Rabies Day now on 16th year was organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and being celebrated every Sept. 28 of the year to raise awareness and advocate for rabies elimination globally.
In line with this year’s celebration with the theme “Rabies: One Health, Zero Death,” the City Veterinary Office (CVO) will conduct free vaccination for 50 dogs at SM Mall of Asia (MOA) from 12:00 noon up to 4:00 p.m.
Rubiano said they will also hold the Pawshion Show 2022 for dogs, aged three months old and above, and their fur parents.
The mayor said only one pet dog per fur parent will be allowed to join the Pawshion Show.
Rubiano said residents who are interested to join the event must register the name of dog owner, address, mobile number, email address; name of dog and its age, color and breed; record of vaccination, and short description of the dog costume.
