All of the proceeds collected through this fundraiser will go into purchasing the medical supplies needed to treat the animals.
We are very happy to announce that Boracay will host a Boracay Veterinary Mission for cats and dogs, on April 12th til 17th,2021. This medical mission is organized by local animal lovers, two visiting tourist veterinarians from Manila, and supported by our Malay Office of Municipal Agriculture and our Malay Local Government.
The mission will be held for 2 days per Brgy starting in Brgy Manoc-Manoc April 12 and 13th, followed by Brgy Balabag April 14th and 15th and last Brgy Yapak April 16th and 17th. The aim is to give free anti-rabies vaccines, and neuter and spay dogs and cats on the island for free. As this has been approved by our Malay Local Government and Office of Municipal, we now reach out to you- our island community.
As the Covid pandemic has affected the livelihood of so many, we can also see that with that, we have had an enormous rise in stray cats and dogs on the island. Especially the cat population seems to be growing at a very fast rate. The mission is to reach out to all of you our islanders about the humanity towards the animals that we share our island with. Boracay being the number one tourist destination of the country is now being visited by tourists from all over the Philippines, and many of them comment on the stray dogs and cats roaming around the island, resulting in negative feedback and reviews. Another fact to consider is that a population of too many cats can result in the extinction of native populations in the surrounding environment.
Please help raise the awareness to the local community that everyone could bring their dogs and cats, or catch strays and bring in, to have them neutered and spayed. We are also reaching out to all of you, residents, and business holders on the island, to ask for help in making this mission possible. We will need sponsorship for rooms for the veterinarians to stay, food for them to eat, transportation to and from events, and financial support for the medical supply and materials used. Kindly email us where you would like to sponsor or how you can help, and include your name, contact details, and company logo so we can include them in our marketing of the mission.
