Dog meat eating was banned in Manila in 1982, and nationwide in 1998 via Republic Act No. 8485, known as the Animal Welfare Act with exemptions for dogs killed and eaten as part of indigenous rituals.

More recently, this national ban was bolstered by the Rabies Act (RA 9482), which upgraded penalties for convicted dog meat traders to include jail time and substantially increased fines as a means of limiting the spread of rabies.

While many individuals within the dog meat trade have been arrested and prosecuted successfully by animal protection organizations working in conjunction with police, a lack of enforcement and judicial tolerance of dog meat eating are endemic, allowing the industry to thrive.

Please sign the petition below and help to encourage the Filipino government to enforce the law prohibiting the trade in dog meat.

Many thanks.
