Dog Butcher Couple Arrested For Selling Dog Meat Dishes in Nueva Ecija

A dog butcher couple has been arrested for killing dogs and selling dog meat dishes at their small eatery in Nueva Ecija.

Danilo and Susana Gallardo have been arrested in Barangay Barrera, Cabanatuan City for butchering dogs.

The couple butchers the dogs in their slaughterhouse inside a shanty and delivers its meat to their patrons.


The dogs are intentionally not placed inside the cage to avoid any suspicion but tying them to the posts making it appear as if they are pets.

The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group personnel including the members of Animal Kingdom Foundation raided the slaughter house and rescued newly-delivered dogs inside plastic sacks.

The authorities also found out that the dogs were about to be killed and cooked on a big cauldron.


The dog meat were mixed in some dishes and being sold at Rica’s Eatery owned by the Gallardo couple.

Atty. Heidi Caguioa, program director of Animal Kingdom Foundation filed a complaint against the couple for violating the Animal Welfare Act.
