Dr. Pastor C. Tumaliuan, Jr.

April 26, 2014 was World Veterinary Day and it was celebrated by the PVMA National Officers with two activities.

The first activity was a Rabies Vaccination Drive at San
Nicolas, Bay, Laguna.  On hand was Mr.
Noli S. Mabuyo, Barangay Councilor to represent Punong Barangay Hon. Esteban
Pantas Salas.   Vaccines were provided by
Dr. Juanito Pio L. Lledo and syringes by Dr. Pastor C. Tumaliuan, Jr.   The team was able to vaccinate 48 dogs and 1
cat, covering 34 households. 

The second activity was a visit to the DENR – Region IV Wildlife Regional
Rescue Center located at Calauan, Laguna.  The visit was facilitated by Mr. Raymund
Mercurio, Forester and administrator of the center.  A briefing was done for the visiting
veterinarians on the means by which the animals were confiscated and cited some
of the problems that were encountered at the center.  He suggested that the best way to help would
be donating feeds for the animals as they are being rehabilitated.
