Dog Trader Turned Dog Dish Vendor Arrested
Padre Garcia of Batangas, south of Metro Manila, was one of the main supplier of dogs to the North. That was then. Now it is slowly becoming a dog meat dish vendor's place of venture.
The Animal Kingdom Foundation Inc. (AKF) has a heavy concentration of cases against dog traders in Batangas.
We may have broken the link between the dog supplying syndicates of the south to the dog meat buyers in the north but these unscrupulous beings, based on our experience, will always push the envelope until they are totally depleted of resources. A resources that is not much in terms of capitalization for the buying and selling of dogs but we hurt them a lot via their pockets when the court fines them more.
This rescue operation happened on September 10 in the afternoon at Quilo-Quilo, Padre Garcia. The arrested trader was recently arraigned and imprisoned.
The five rescued dogs are now in the AKF Sanctuary in Capas, Tarlac.
As long as AKF has the support of fellow advocates, AKF will go after these heartless dog traders.
This support does not go for naught; AKF is always watching these wicked group.
To help save more slaughter-bound dogs, AKF needs help.
Perhaps you can skip your coffee, your usual treat of donut, or milkshake maybe. The dogs need our help. (Greg S. Quimpo. AKF Campaigns Manager)

106 dogs and cats spayed and neutered for free in Cavite
General Trias City, Cavite—Around 106 dogs and cats were spayed and neutered during the free spay/neuter project of the city agriculture office (CAO) last September 19 at the Barangay San Francisco barangay hall in celebration of World Rabies Day 2019.
Nerie Marquez, CAO head, said 76 dogs and 31 cats were spayed or neutered.
"This is the choice of CHO (city health office), because Barangay San Francisco is the most populous among 33 villages here and medyo marami ding stray dogs," said CHO chairman Eddie Umali said.
The project, in cooperation with the Cavite veterinary office, Philippine Animal Health Association (PAHA) and Cavite State U, is in line with the local government’s goal to keep dogs and cats healthy and to help control animal population in the area.
The program also aims to stop the increase in the number of stray or abandoned dogs and cats and prevent bite incidents in the city.
"This is one of the projects to eliminate dog bites or rabies in the city." said Dr. Gloria Digma, officer-in-charge of the Cavite provincial veterinary office.
The first of a series of free spaying/neutering was held in Cavite City on April 2 with 58 dogs and 29 cats spayed or neutered.
On April 5, 50 dogs were spayed and neutered In General Trias.
On Sept. 18, a spay/neuter program was held in Cavite State University (CvSU) – Indang campus with the help of the College of Veterinary Medicine coeds and Biomedical Sciences. Dennis Abrina
