The Phuket Live Stock Department has provided rabies vaccines for cats and dogs to help take care of the animal population on the island.
The rabies vaccine campaign was held over the past weekend (July 1st) at the Kathu Public Park and was led by the Phuket Live Stock Department Chief Mr. Taywin Sawangsin.
Mr. Taywin told the Phuket Express, “The campaign is aimed to control the number of pets and stray cats and dogs in the area as well as to prevent the rabies virus in risky areas.”
“Pet owners and residents should have knowledge about the rabies virus and relevant laws about pets. We have to be responsible for our pets within our communities so that the number of stray cats and dogs will not increase.” Taywin added.
