The City Council of São Brás de Alportel is going to launch the “Veterinary Check” program, which will allow the care of animals at risk in the municipality. In a first phase, the initiative will focus on the sterilization of stray animals.

The “Veterinary Cheque” is the result of a protocol signed between the São Brasense autarchy and the Veterinary Doctors Association and is part of the National Animal Health Support Program for pet animals.

«The Veterinary Check aims to provide health care to animals at risk, particularly with regard to vaccination, deworming and sterilization, as well as other 24-hour treatments and emergencies», explained the City Council of São Brás de Alportel.

For now, the municipality intends to focus "on the sterilization of stray animals, in order to prevent the spread of abandoned animals, focusing on animals that are the target of intervention by municipal services, including those that are integrated into the emergency shelter".

"The protocol, in force for one year, with the possibility of renewal for equal periods, has as its objectives the promotion of public health, the education of good animal welfare practices, the prevention of abandonment of animals, the control of the animal population wandering and the decrease in the animal population housed in the official collection centre”, concluded the City Council of São Brás de Alportel.
