Animal Rights Advocacy

I love pets, the people around me knows that. We have dogs and cats at home. Unfortunately, my 2 cats died for clumsy reasons and I fully blame myself for the loss. It is not new to the people that Filipino eats ‘dog meat’. Yes, these people are nothing but monster to me. They are the worst animal. They’re cruel and should be put in jail.

Somewhere in Luzon, dogs are served as ‘pulutan’ (liquor’s partner). Meager income people enjoy every serving of it. And it is very improbable to hear cos for all we know, dogs are not supposed to be eaten. Dogs are pets, guardians at home – a man’s bestfriend.

I saw on television a News Sitcom that investigates the said issues. And I was crushed to see that hundreds of native dogs are delivered from different part of the country to a certain place in Luzon; a place they called ‘Dog Meat Industry’. I even saw how some of these ‘criminals’ whacked the head of the dog that is set to be slaughter. I also discover many recipes these people cooked from the dog meat. And my blood boils seeing those ‘stupid’ people take pleasure in every bite of it.


I just can’t hide the tears I shed while watching the show. I felt so hopeless that all I can do is to pray for the dog’s safety and recovery. The dogs were abused, harassed and maltreated. You can see bruises, scars, fresh cuts, bloods and anything cruel. You could see how hard to fight to live and how lonely their eyes – which will squeeze your heart badly. I can even see tears on their eyes and I couldn’t help but cry. Luzon is far from Mindanao (where I live). I want to help the dogs. I want to scream and whack those ‘criminals’ myself. The dogs had enough of their whacking, and those ‘criminals’ are most likely deserved my hardest whack.

When a private organization (that supports animal welfare) was introduced, it gives me hope; a hope that will save dogs helpless dogs in cage. I’m so happy that a private organization named ‘Animal Kingdom’ saved those dogs. The mission of Animal Kingdom Foundation is to support, protect and promote welfare and the rights of animals, to eliminate the practice of illegal slaughter of dogs for human consumption and to introduce legislations or amendments in the existing animal-welfare laws of the Philippines.

But why this has to happen? What forced these people to be cruel? Was it because of poverty?

In fairness to my underprivileged countrymen, they have their own reasons. I just can’t blame them. Poor and hungry – they have no money to buy more appropriate and decent food (we eat). Dog meat and delicacies are affordable. These people are deprived financially. Now, who’s to blame, the government or themselves?

I limit my advocacy to dogs and cats cos it’s hypocrite to include pigs, cows, carabao, fish and chicken – that I commonly eat. I can’t consider myself as a full-pledged Animal Right Advocate because I am not qualified. Needless to say, I am happy that people are (now) educated about the Animal Rights. I looked up to some organizations that fought against animal cruelty. I salute them.

I am hoping – you guys respect their rights too.

Featured dogs: Wyatt, Gabrielle, Kendy, Lord Domino, Coco, Chino and Missy.

    i don't like dogs and cats ... but
    they don't obviously belong to the list of domisticated animals ... so they don't deserve to be slaughtered ... unfortunately, it's a local delicacy on the tagalog region

    it's sad why sila ginagawang pulutan...
    sana malagyan ng rabies ang mga taong kumakatay kay bantay...
    i saw once sa road...
    while i was waiting sa trisikad...
    may nakita ako na 4 na aso na sumunod sa kanilang amo sa palabas papunta ng street road na may naga daan na mga sasakyan...
    unfortunately nasagasaan ang isang aso...
    sute pa naman ang aso na yun...
    chubby masyado...
    nakita ko talaga ang accident...
    the dog was dead...
    humihinga pa pero di na mabuhay...
    my heart stops and nasaktan ako sa nangyari...
    hanggang ngayon ma remember ko talaga ang incident na yun...
    kaya let's love our pets...

    watch din kayo ng CHARLOTTE'S WEB...
    na touch ako sa movie na yun...
    it may be a cliche movie...
    pero maganda ang message ng movie...

    I am blessed to have friends who also love pets. I am wishing people will realize that.

    @Kalamansi
    Kalooy pud sa dog oi. Unya, naunsa ang tag-iya?

    It makes me sick seeing this. I could never even dream of eating dog meat. I'm so close with my dog it would be like eating my best friend.

    But if you have nothing else to eat and you don't think of dogs that way maybe they can do it. It would totally break my heart though.

    yup, poverty is one good reason behind these slaughters... so, whats the most logical thing to do? kill the criminals and serve them as gourmet dilicacies... :D

    kidding aside, i dont like the idea of slaughtering dogs [cant quite say i HATE it, i mean, put yourself in the shoes of someone who has no food and finds a stray dog, what COULD you do?] their place is somewhere along the bleeding arm of a burglar and not in some cheapa** plate...

    masking unsang animal malain ko na patyon. masking baboy ug manok. pero mukaon gihapon ko. and i love pork and chicken! waahh! walay mahitabo kung dili ko magchange.

    pero more so pa ang cats ug dogs. di ko ganahan na ginpatay sila. ug di pud ko ganahan ug owners na dili responsable sa ilang pets.

    ug if we can't take care of our pets, what more sa uban tao diba. na ang pets panaman ang pinaka loyal sa tanan. masking kulatahon nimo, ilove gihapon ka nila unconditionally. huhuhu. gusto lang nako magdrama! haha

    Thank you for dropping by pretty Amy. (i wonder if you're Killar's gf hehe o_O)

    But anyway, i'm glad you guys are against "Animal Cruelty". For whatever reasons, abusing animals is against the law. However, aren't cow, pi, fish and chicken being abused? I've got a clear answer through the 'food chain'. Those animals are considered part of the food chain, cos 'human' consumes them as it is proven to be 'safe' and is likely to be eaten for centuries. We eat them cos it balances the food chain as well. Dogs, cats, rabbits, and the likes are excluded cos their animals are likely for home pets and buddies. =)

    I hope i have a point though. o_O

    I love animal. I think we have six cats and four dogs at home. Or is it eight cats? I can never tell how many cats we have because they multiply like rabbits. We also have a lot of fish and parakeets. Anyway, I am interested in any advocacy campaign that supports animal rights. We share the planet with them sop we also have to give them space and protection against abuse.

THE HEART SPEAKS

from ~~~~~~~~

DEAR JESUS,
You told Your close followers
who were taught how to seek the Father's heart
that whatever they asked for in prayer,
that they were to believe they received it
and it would be theirs. (Mark 11:24)

O, Father, help me to know Your heart intimately
so that I'll know how to pray,
what to pray,
and believe in advance
that I will receive it!
