Key Points of the Philippines' Revised Animal Welfare Act

Key Points of Revised Animal Welfare Act / How To Report Animal Cruelty / How and Where To File a Case By Nong Obieta on Monday, January 18, 2016 at 3:11 PM Updated August 21, 2016 Please read my new Note at the bottom of this document on how to file a case. NOTE: So many animal lovers, whenever they see animal cruelty, always say to report to PAWS. Please note that PAWS will NOT do anything unless the reporter of the crime is willing to sign an affidavit, etc. In fact, even PAWS suggests reporting the crime to the authorities, such as calling the Philippine National Police PNP hotline or asking the Barangay for help. Instead of waiting for PAWS to act, YOU must report the crime immediately by calling PNP or going to your barangay or police station directly. OR, even better, let the criminal know that you can see him committing a crime and let him know that what he is doing will put him in jail, AND, if possible, let the criminal see that you are taking a video of his crime. http://pawsphilippines.weebly.com/cruelty-how-to-report-animal-cruelty--calling-117.html SEC. 2. Section 6 of Republic Act No. 8485 is hereby amended to read as follows:“SEC. 6. 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 horse fights, kill or cause or procure to be tortured or deprived of adequate care, sustenance or shelter, or maltreated or use the same in research or experiments not expressly authorized by the Committee on Animal Welfare.SEC. 3. A new Section 7 is hereby inserted after Section 6 of the same Act to read as follows:“SEC. 7. It shall be unlawful for any person who has custody of an animal to abandon the animal. “If any person being the owner or having charge or control of any animal shall without reasonable cause or excuse abandon it, whether permanently or not, without providing for the care of that animal, such act shall constitute maltreatment under Section 9.“If the animal is left in circumstances likely to cause the animal any unnecessary suffering, or if this abandonment results in the death of the animal, the person liable shall suffer the maximum penalty. (such as putting a cat or dog in a sack and/or transporting it to a location where the animal will be unable to find its way back to the location from where it was taken and is then unable to fend for itself)“ Abandonment means the relinquishment of all rights, title, claim, or possession of the animal with the intention of not reclaiming it or resuming its ownership or possession. Section 8 of Republic Act No. 8485 which shall now become Section 9 is hereby amended to read as follows: “SEC. 9. Any person who subjects any animal to cruelty, maltreatment or neglect shall, upon conviction by final judgment, be punished by imprisonment and/ or fine, as indicated in the following graduated scale: (1) Imprisonment of one (1) year and six (6) months and one (1) day to two (2) years and/or a 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; and“ (3) Imprisonment of six (6) months to one (1) year and/or a fine not exceeding Thirty thousand pesos (P30,000.00) for subjecting any animal to cruelty, maltreatment or neglect but without causing its death or (without) incapacitating it to survive on its own.“If the violation is committed by a juridical person, the officer responsible thereof shall serve the imprisonment. If the violation is committed by an alien, he or she shall be immediately deported after the service of sentence without any further proceeding.“The foregoing penalties shall also apply for any other violation of this Act, depending upon the effect or result of the act or omission as defined in the immediately preceding sections.“However, regardless of the resulting condition to the animal/s, the penalty of two (2) years and one (1) day to three (3) years and/or a fine not exceeding Two hundred fifty thousand pesos (P250,000.00) shall be imposed if the offense is committed by any of the following: (1) a syndicate; (2) an offender who makes business out of cruelty to an animal; (3) a public officer or employee; or (4) where at least three (3) animals are involved. “In any of the foregoing situations, the offender shall suffer subsidiary imprisonment in case of insolvency and the inability to pay the fine.”SEC. 5. A new Section 10 is hereby inserted after the Section above to read as follows:“SEC. 10. The Secretary of the Department of Agriculture shall deputize animal welfare enforcement officers from non-government organizations, citizens groups, community organizations and other volunteers who have undergone the necessary training for this purpose." The Philippine National Police, the National Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies shall designate animal welfare enforcement officers. As such, animal welfare enforcement officers shall have the authority to seize and rescue illegally traded and maltreated animals and to arrest violators of this Act subject to the guidelines of existing laws and rules and regulations on arrest and detention Note of Nong Obieta: 1) If your animal has been maltreated, hurt, or killed, take photos of your animal, dead or alive. 2) If the animal is still alive, bring it to a vet and have it treated immediately 3) Ask the vet to issue a certification on the condition of the animal when you first brought it to the clinic, and the certification should state what was done to treat the animal, and what the prognosis is. 4) Prepare your own Affidavit on exactly what transpired - where was your animal when the incident happened - was your animal tied up or loose, inside your premises or outside your premises, etc. 5) Bring that Affidavit to the local office of your Prosecutor/Fiscal (and NOT to your barangay) 6) File a criminal case of Malicious Mischief and Animal Cruelty 7) DO NOT AGREE to a settlement - make sure that the criminal is jailed. . Also, you can choose to work with the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) which has a volunteer lawyer who can help you file a case provided you are able to submit a properly prepared affidavit.
