Our Campaigns:

Ending the Dog Meat Trade

No animal on earth deserves the treatment that dog slaughterers and animal abusers give to these innocent dogs.

Dogs Cramped in Cages to be Slaughtered by Dog Meat Traders

The cruel dog meat trade is one of the most serious animal welfare concerns in the Philippines. The availability and consumption of dog meat are widespread in various parts of the country where the welfare concern lies in the large number of unfortunate dogs that are taken from the streets and being inhumanely slaughtered. Now, it continues to be a problem as some dog meat traders remain at large.

AKF is a partner of the the Philippine National Police (PNP), Bureau of Animal Industry – Animal Welfare Division (BAI – AWD), and National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) in the implementation of the laws against animal cruelty, especially against the dog meat trade. 

We rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome the dogs as soon as they're ready and have completely recovered while, at the same time, pursue the prosecution of the dog meat traders. AKF conducts its own surveillance, stake-outs, and raids in full coordination with the PNP in order to end this inhumane practice.
