City Hall executives and animal welfare advocates hold a second meeting recently at the Old City Hall to discuss ways on how to improve the plight of the impounded dogs at the Bacolod City Pound.
The attendees are proposing to create an Animal Welfare Task Force that would formulate and implement plans and programs for the animal welfare in Bacolod City, and to ensure an effective coordination between LGUs and NGOs on animal welfare advocacies.
The group also agreed to have a regular meeting, evey last Tuesday of the month for monitoring and updating.
Leading the meeting are Executive Assistant Ernesto Pineda, cluster head for Sectoral Concerns; City Veterinary Office head Dr. Maria Agueda Trinidad Dela Torre,
