Bacolod Animal Welfare
Awareness Week begins today
Bacolod Community Animal Rescue Efforts Inc. (CARE) begins its anniversary celebration today with Bacolod Animal Welfare Awareness Week (BAWAW) at the Ayala Capitol Central Mall activity center. The event, which seeks to highlight a “love of all God’s creation and halt cruelty to animals,” is set to run until Sunday, October 6.
According to CARE, “The core essence of BAWAW is that human beings should realize and understand that animals have a sense of emotion, their own expression, and the capability to love, be loyal and friendly.”
The event will include booth bazaars selling different choices of foods, accessories, bags, clothes, among others; a pet kissing photo booth; pet adoption booth; and a pledge wall where those in attendance can write thoughts, message, prayers, or wishes not only for “furry friends” but also to keep marine life protected and for a pollution-free environment.
In addition, local artists will take part in the Pet d’Arts on Saturday, October 5, where artists are encouraged to create, innovate, and express love for animals using recycled and upcycled materials; the “Pet Got Talent Show” will also take place on Saturday; while the “Bully Show” is scheduled for Sunday.
The observance also coincides with World Animal Day, which takes place on Friday, October 4./DGB, WDJ
