LIBRENG KAPON: The Humane Way

[By Ma. Suzette Defensor]

There’s a way to curb the stray animal population; or give your rescue dog or cat a better, healthier life, and consequently decrease stray and unwanted animals in your community.

Unnie and Oppa, weeks after their rescue. Possibly newly born when we stumbled upon them on the street, encased in ice candy plastic wrapper. Wet, almost lifeless, but still warm, and breathing.   

Rescued this white dog. Sadly, he didn’t survive the never ending allergies and infections. 

It’s spaying for female animals and neutering for the males. Yes, it can be costly. But the benefits far outweigh the expense for household pets.  Chances of breast cancer,  uterine infections , pyometra for females and testicular cancer for males are reduced. 

Your pets are happier, well-adjusted to their environment. Behavioral changes, agitations while  looking for mates  are gone. They’re comfortable and safe staying  at home. Marking territories are reduced, which is the main reason for fights. Decreased number of strays will also lessen the number of homeless and starving animals, bite incidences, and euthanasia.

Responsible Pet ownership is also governed by laws to ensure humane treatment of both pet companions and stray animals. Local governments have a city veterinary office which are tasked to implement these laws and ordinances. Also there are private associations and foundations whose concern is animal welfare.

By the way, this is Unnie at present. After numerous visits to the vet.  Oppa did not make it.
