Baguio Canine "microchipping" starts November
Want to give "man's best friend" a bit more protection in case they get lost or stolen?
The mandatory installation of microchip tags on dogs will start this November.
Thus bared City Veterinary and Agriculture Office (CVAO) chief Dr. Bridgit Piok during the City Hall flag-raising program.
She said, installation of microchips is mandatory for pets that are three-months old or over.
The microchip tagging of dogs is pursuant to Ordinance No. 60-2020. It establishes easier ownership tracking of dogs; protection of pets from theft; monitoring schedule of anti-rabies jabs; and, establishing accountability of pet-owners, among others.
The micro tag which rests under the dog's skin holds information on the owner's name, address, contacts, and description of the canine.
It costs P300 per dog and may be administered in barangays during scheduled mass tagging activities or at the CVAO.
A registration certificate shall then be issued after the dog had been microchipped. It is a permanent record that lasts until the dog's lifetime, unless there a change of ownership.
When the dog passes, the owner is required to inform the barangay or CVAO within five days.
In changes of ownership, the new owner must report the same within a period not exceeding ten days. Registration by the new owner costs P250.
Under the ordinance, Piok revealed, absence of the chip on a dog three-months old or over violates Ordinance No. 60-2020. A fine of P2,000 shall be imposed upon the owner.
A fine of P2,000 is likewise imposed upon owners of stray pooches.
She said, any person who releases an impounded dog without it having been micro-tagged or without fees or fines having been paid by the owner shall be fined P1,000, over possible administrative or criminal charges.
The ordinance imposes an impounding fee of P500 per dog; maintenance fee of P50 per dog per day; and, adoption fee of P500 per dog, she added.
Piok disclosed, within three-days, unclaimed dogs at the city pound may be put up for adoption; or, donated for scientific studies; or, put down.

Baguio Boy is Next PNP Chief
UPDATE: Lieutenant General Camilo Cascolan is the next Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, replacing retiring top cop General Archie Gamboa, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año confirmed to Rappler on Tuesday, September 1.
Cascolan is set to retire on November 10 as he reaches the mandatory age of retirement of 56, unless President Rodrigo Duterte decides to extend his term.
Asked about Cascolan's possible short term, Año said the public should not focus on the span of his stint, but the work to be done.
"Matagal pa naman ang 2 months (2 months is still long). We don't think of that yet. There is a lot to be done," he said.
In terms of seniority, Cascolan was next in line to be chief as the deputy chief for administration of the PNP. He belongs to the Philippine Military Academy Sinagtala Class of 1986.
Police Lt. Gen. Camilo Pancratius Cascolan will serve as officer-in-charge of the Philippine National Police (PNP) upon the retirement of Gen. Archie Gamboa on Wednesday, Malacañang said Tuesday.
Known by his nickname "Pikoy," Cascolan is also a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1986, to which his two predecessors, Police Generals Gamboa and (now Senator) Ronald de la Rosa also belonged.
A native of Baguio City, he is a product of the Maryknoll Convent School and the University of the Philippines Baguio High School.
