Organizations in Baguio City partnered to raise funds for the improvement of the City Veterinary Office.
The Junior Chamber International Baguio Sunflower, together with the Citizens League for Animal Welfare and Safety (Claws), Pines City Dog Lovers, Cordillera Animal Protection Advocates, Outstanding Students of the Cordillera Administrative Region (Oscar), and Baguio Ploggers Community, organized a pack walk and plogging for a cause.
The activity came into being after Claws brought attention to the need for a CCTV in the dog pound.
The pack walk not only garnered funds for the CCTV installment, but also raised awareness among the community’s dog owners about the issue.
The Oscar suggested inclusion of plogging to clean surroundings.
The activity started at Panagbenga Park and had about 30 citizens with their fur babies. While the dogs enjoyed some socialization and cool air, their humans picked up trash along South Drive and Park Road.
The walk ended at Wright Park, where advocates and veterinarians shared their knowledge about pack walks, dog vaccinations, and proper dog care. The vets also gave free consultations.
Flyers containing information about rabies and free rabies vaccine stubs provided by the City Veterinary Office were also distributed. – Press release
