Charges filed vs couple who performed C-section on dog

An animal rights group has filed a criminal complaint against a couple in Quezon City who posted photos of their pregnant dog that died shortly after they forcibly performed a cesarean section to recover puppies.

In a 12-page complaint filed before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office on Wednesday, Philippine Animal Welfare Society executive director Anna Nieves Hashim Cabrera named dog traders Evangeline Diaz Guevarra and Jonathan Dominguez Galguerra as respondents to the case for violation of Republic Acts 8485, or the Animal Welfare Act of 1998, and 9268, or the Philippine Veterinary Medicine Act.

Cabrera said that considering the deceased animal was not registered with the City Veterinary Department, the respondents also committed a violation of City Ordinance 2505-2016.

She said that under the online user name “Gie Diaz,” one of the breeders posted pictures of the pregnant toy poodle named Bubbles, whose body was cut open using a knife and a pair of scissors.

The couple also posted the mutilated corpse of the dog after the delivery, pictures of the dog’s puppies, and an admission that they had performed the procedure.

"Thus, by performing a surgical procedure themselves without being registered veterinary professionals (and without using anesthesia), the respondents not only maltreated and abused an animal by inflicting needless pain and causing its death, they also neglected to provide the animal and the puppies they delivered from it with the veterinary care demanded by the situation," Cabrera said.
