Philippines. Tarlac. Dogs for Adoption. Animal Kingdom Foundation.

Approximately an hour or so North of Manila is the city of Tarlac. That's home base for the Animal Kingdom Foundation (AKF), a non-government organization dedicated to combating the dog meat trade among other animal welfare issues. They work with the Philippine National Police (PNP) in intercepting dog transporters by spot checking vans along the highways, usually operating off tips from concerned animal lovers. The AKF/PNP teams also conduct raids on eateries that serve dogmeat. It's pretty nasty work, but the AKF is up to the job. The natural byproduct, of course, are the rescued dogs. They are taken to a large shelter in Tarlac where they are treated and brought up to snuff for adoption. Here are several survivors from the dogmeat trade, all set to bring love and joy into the homes of those willing to give them a chance at a decent life. When you look at these dogs, you wonder about those who didn't make it out safely. The dogmeat trade has given the Philippines a very bad reputation, but I ask those who are inclined to quickly condemn to also consider that there are ten-fold more citizens who disapprove of the trade.

First of all, I praise you for feeding the dog as much as you can. Some people just don't not care and that brings all of us down as a people and a nation. Why don't you just contact the Animal Kingdom Foundation. You have a legitimate concern for a neglected dog. The link to AKF is right on the post you commented on. Just move your mouse cursor over the name. They would be the closest to your location. Do it quick since there is a dog in dire need. Please continue to feed that dog until help comes.

Philippines. Reporting Animal Cruelty. Emergency Numbers. RA 8485.

Because I belong to an group of animal welfare advocates in the Philippines, I can read the numerous discussions between group members and people who, seems to me, just signed up to make an urgent plea for help. There were two this week who begged for assistance concerning two dogs who were tied up under rain and sun with no food nor water. One was described to be on the verge of a heat stroke. The images that filled my mind disturbed me immensely, but I am also encouraged at the same time. There is a growing number of animal welfare advocates in the Philippines and ordinary citizens are beginning to reject animal cruelty, willing to take personal action against it. Just from this website, I can see from the visitor data that many are seeking information on how to report animal cruelty in the Philippines. You can find my previous post on the subject HERE . Keep in mind that your complaint has legal standing via the Philippine Animal Welfare Act which is also known as the RA 8485 .

Antipolo. Philippines. Dog Fighting. Dan Sy Tan Arraigned.

It looks like the noose is getting tighter around the neck of Dan Sy Tan , the alleged but obviously guilty ring leader of a vicious dogfighting ring in the town of Antipolo, Rizal in the Philippines. He was finally arraigned on June 5, 2008 for his crimes, illegal gambling and violating the Philippine Animal Welfare Act of 1998 . Caught redhanded by undercover cops posing as spectators, Dan Tan and his business associates face overwhelming evidence. Included in the ring are three Thai nationals who fled the country last year. They are on videotape. There are gate receipts, eye witnesses, veterinary statements, all point to their guilt. These guys made money from the blood of fighting dogs. What a way to make a living! It's been a full year since the night of the raid, but we'll take every bit of victory we can get. I say " We " because I am a member of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) who worked with the police to capture these poor excuses for human be

Tampa, Florida. Animal Abuse. Five Dogs Neglected. November 2008.

Oh, I'm sorry. Have I introduced you to this nice couple over here? World, meet Wilmer Fernandez (34)and his wife Aixa Rodriguez (32). They live in Tampa, Florida with several children plus FIVE starving and abused dogs. The news reported that three of the dogs were tied up in the backyard with a leash that was too short to give them any room to exercise their muscles while two of the five dogs, boxer and dachshund, hadn't seen a veterinarian at all. One of the five was near death. A dog named Casper , according to the officers, was so sick that they could not tell what breed he was. All dogs were found to be hungry and thirsty. If on November 30, an investigator didn't coincidentally see an emaciated dog in the backyard of 12315 Cambridge Ave ., where Fernandez and Rodriguez live, these dogs would have died a very cruel death. When questioned, the couple argued that they did not have the money to properly care for the dogs. Well, yeah, how could they afford vet care when
