End Dog Bullying, Now!
We are creating an advocacy on stopping abuses on animals, specifically, dogs. One of our aims is to create a petition to suggest an inrease in the fine and length of time of the Philippine Animal Welfare Act. According to the Section 9 of the Philippine Animal Welfare Act, punishments for an animal abuser is as follows:Sign PetitionSign Petition
1. Imprisonment of one (1) year and six (6) months and one (1) day to two (2) years and/or fine not exceeding One hundred thousand pesos (P100,000.00) if the animal subjected to cruelty, maltreatment or neglect dies.
2. Imprisonment of one (1) year and one (1) day to one (1) year and six (6) months and/or a fine not exceeding Fifty thousand pesos (P50,000.00) if the animal subjected to cruelty, maltreatment or neglect survives but is severely injured with loss of its natural faculty to survive on its own and needing human intervention to sustain its life
3. Imprisonment of six (6) months to one (1) year and/or fine not exceeding Thirty thousand pesos (P30,000.00) for subjecting any animal to cruelty, maltreatment or neglect but without causing its death or incapacitating it to survive on its own.
We believe that the said punisments are not effective in terms of its implementation and the fines and prison times themselves.
