The city government through the Zamboanga City Rabies Control and Eradication Coordinating Council (ZCRCECC) has lined up several activities to highlight the observance of the Rabies Awareness Month in March.

Dr. Mario Arriola, city veterinarian, said Tuesday activities will kick-off with a motorcade at 8 a.m. on March 5 from the Pettit Barracks area to Barangay Pasonanca where the launching program will be held.

Arriola, who is also the ZCRCECC executive officer, said the motorcade will be joined in by the different local government offices, national agencies, non-government organizations and other stakeholders.

Arriola said some of the activities are to encourage the public on the practice of responsible pet ownership.

He said this year’s Rabies Awareness Month is anchored on the theme “Bakunadong Pusa’t Aso, sa Rabis Protektado.” Sama-sama nating labanan ang Rabis.
