Be a responsible pet owner

I love cats! And I'm pretty sure that everybody knows that by now :) If I could take on 100 cats I would but unfortunately I do not have the proper house nor do I have the funds to do that. Animal population control is a serious problem here in the Philippines. I mean, how many times have we encountered news on animal cruelty and neglect?

Anyway, I'd like to share the news about a wonderful project headed by the UP Vet Med. Details and poster below:

This event will be conducted at the UP Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Diliman from 8am to 5pm.
