Commemorating the Year of the Dog and being part of the foundation anniversary activities, the Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU) led by Gov. Francisco Emmanuel “Pacoy” R. Ortega III held the “Love your Pets Day” program on February 20, 2018 in front of the City Hall, City of San Fernando, La Union. The Office of the Provincial Veterinarian (OPVET) headed by Dr. Nida N. Gapuz spearheaded the program.

The Governor graced the event expounding on the theme for this year’s anniversary, “Spread the Love.” “Spread the love not just to fellow people but also to creatures big and small,” the Governor stated in his message. He also shared a quote from renowned French novelist Anatole France that goes, “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” Gov. Pacoy said that he relates to the extraordinary affection people give their animal friends as his family too, loves and cares for a large number of different pets in their household.
