Af­ter the joy and ex­cite­ment of Christ­mas and the noise of New Year’s Eve-- it is time to re­new our com­mit­ment to love and care for our beloved pets.

To the in­di­vid­ual pet owner, check whether your pet’s anti-ra­bies shots and other vac­ci­na­tions are up-to-date, look af­ter its bathing sched­ule, trim­ming, and food-wa­ter in­take.

If some­one re­ceives a gift - a cute, lit­tle doggie, hairy cat, or an elu­sive mouse, a visit to the vet­eri­nar­ian or bet­ter still, the pet beauty sa­lon - is a wel­come treat.

To lo­cal au­thor­i­ties - the barangay chair­man, city or town mayor, and the lo­cal stray pet catcher or pound staff mem­ber, there should be a reg­u­lar pa­trol to col­lect stray dogs or cats should be stepped up to avoid ac­ci­dents. If nec­es­sary, the reg­is­tra­tion of pets in the com­mu­nity may be con­ducted.

The cen­sus is part of dis­ci­pline and hu­man con­trol of our beloved crea­tures.

To the non-gov­ern­ment groups and an­i­mal wel­fare or­ga­ni­za­tions, 2017 prom­ises a good start for the ten­der love and care, lead­ing to the dis­ci­pline and proper ed­u­ca­tion of pet owner who should keep an eye on their beloved mem­ber or mem­bers of the fam­ily.
