PET PROTECTION FROM RAIN, FLOOD
As the short, hot summer drifts away, July bring on the rains and floods.
This is a wake-up call for pet owners and lovers: the community must be alert for stray dogs and cats that are infected with rabies endangering children who walk from school, play in the neighborhood, and even run errands to nearby stores.
Responsibility is of utmost importance as mature pet owners put their pets indoors to avoid being wet in the rain or flood.
Every barangay chairman, reelected or newly elected, must monitor people with pets, warning them to put leashes on them and protect them from rains or floods.
Veterinarians have stepped up the drive against rabies by offering free anti-rabies shots. At the end of the day, pet owners should be responsible enough to keep them indoors and give them shelter from the rainy days.
All these may be simple, but it all starts from small things to make the community safe and better to love in.
