Dear Mr Vice President

Although I applaud your country's introduction of a law to protect companion animals (i.e. The Animal Welfare Act, 1998), I am shocked by your lack of resolve to enforce this law.

Section 6 clearly states that;
"It shall be unlawful for any person to torture any animal, to neglect to provide adequate care, sustenance or shelter, or maltreat any animal or to subject any dog or horse to dogfights or horsefights, kill or cause or procure to be tortured or deprived of adequate care, sustenance or shelter, or maltreat or use the same in research or experiments not expressly authorized by the Committee on Animal Welfare."

It also goes on to state;
The killing of any animal other than cattle, pigs. goats, sheep, poultry, rabbits, carabaos, horses, deer, and crocodiles is likewise hereby declared unlawful except in the following instances:" and lists several exceptions, none of which mention either dogs or food.

Evidence clearly proves that dogs are currently being sold for human consumption in Government-approved markets in blatant contravention of this law. These animals are treated with appaling cruelty.

I respectfully request that you enforce your nation's law without delay. Until you do, I certainly cannot consider taking a holiday in the Philippines, nor of buying any products from your country. I will regretfully have to advise my friends to do the same.

Yours sincerely
