Petition to Save Man's Best Friend from Dog Meat Trade in the Philippines

Target: Philippines Congress, House of Representatives

Dog meat eating has existed as a long-standing cultural phenomenon in the Northern provinces of the Philippines. Historically, this ritual practice accounted for a relatively small number of animals. However, over the past 25 years, dog meat eating has rapidly proliferated for commercial rather than cultural reasons.

Today, despite a national law banning dog meat eating, a multitude of restaurants exist exclusively to sell dog meat, and current estimates indicate up to half a million dogs are slaughtered and consumed commercially every year in the Philippines. Lack of enforcement and minimal penalties for convicted dog meat traders allow this cruel industry to thrive.

 

Call on the government of the Philippines to Say YES to House Bill 2991 to institute stronger laws and enforcement so that this cruel and illegal practice can be eliminated once and for all.
