Share article on:
The Marikina City Veterinary Office (CVO) today announced that the next batch of pet registration and vaccination would be on Thursday, September 27, and Friday, September 28, for residents in Brgys. Industrial Valley Complex (IVC), Barangka, Kalumpang, Sto. Niño and Tañong.
The annual registration of household pets, particularly cats and dogs, began last Friday for residents in Brgys. San Roque, Sta. Elena and Kalumpang. The CVO is doing this by batches (at least three barangays per) and the announcement of the next round of registration and which barangays would be included are announced on the Marikina PIO website days in advance.
Below is the schedule of the two-day pet registration and vaccination for residents in Brgys. IVC, Barangka, Kalumpang, Sto. Niño and Tañong.
The CVO is undertaking the vaccination of these pets to prevent the spread of “rabies” and other animal diseases to humans that could be fatal.
For the new applicants, the requirements for the registration of their pets include a duly accomplished registration form from the CVO, photo of the dog and cat (full body and side view, 3R size), a 2x2 photo of the owner and P75 registration fee.
For those renewing their pet registration, they must present the dog tag and old registration papers, duly accomplished application form from the CVO and a P75 registration fee.
The pet owners are also required to bring with them the photocopy of the certificate (or proof) of anti-rabies vaccination. If the dogs have not yet been given anti-rabies vaccination, the owners must bring these pets for free vaccination.
To promote responsible ownership of pets and prevent the spread of rabies that could be fatal to humans, Marikina started its annual pet registration in August 2003 through City Ordinance No. 67, which was amended in 2007 as City Ordinance 62 that imposed a fine of P2,000 on owners who fail to register their dog and cat pets.
