PET EDUCATION PROGRAMME

IWCT Philippines

IWCT runs an Education Programme in the Philippines promoting responsible pet ownership. This is conducted during our clinics at the Treatment Centre, our mobile clinics, or during pre-booked visits to our Treatment Centre.
 
In addition to this, topics are discussed here regarding the treatment and respect of animals, even if you are not a pet owner. 
 
Please use this site as an online resource to enhance your knowledge about animal care and welfare. Download and share the FREE PDF’s which can be found at the bottom of each article. 
 
As well as our online resources, the IWCT team are available to conduct seminars in schools or barangays. We also hold regular seminars at our Treatment Centre in Concepcion, Tarlac. Please contact us for more information about in person seminars.  
 
How you can help…
 
Sponsor an Education Seminar! 
 
We rely on volunteer vets and support staff and can only cover minimal expenses. Your sponsorship will help us give more gratification to those who help promote responsible pet ownership through our Education Programme. More importantly, it will help fund the in print resources and learning materials which are taken away by the seminar attendees and shared with those who do not have access to our online resources.
