AVCI is now affiliated with the Cebu City Department of Veterinary Medicine & Fisheries (DVMF) in its drive to register rabies-vaccinated dogs every year in accordance with the Anti-Rabies Act of 2007 (RA 9482), and with the Cebu City Ordinance 1802. For only an additional fee of P50, dogs vaccinated with rabies at AVCI are given brand new dog tags with permanent registration numbers. This will be recorded by DVMF, and will be available anytime next year at this government agency’s website. Employing this type of system will likely avoid any repetition of pet registration numbers. Owners residing in Cebu City who have not registered their dogs will be fined P2,500 by the DVMF for non-compliance of such ordinance, with subsequent impounding of pets.
