In his report to Agriculture Secretary Proceso J. Alcala, Director Efren C. Nuestro of the DA’s Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) said the law’s implementing rules and regulations, subject to the approval of the DA Secretary, was prepared by the DA Committee on Animal Welfare (DA-CAW), which conducted exhaustive consultations with stakeholders in several public hearings.

The committee is composed of representatives from six government agencies, six professional organizations or associations, and two animal societies.

The DA issued an Administrative Order (AO), particularly DA-AO No. 13, Series of 2010, on the “Revised Rules and Regulations on the Euthanasia of Animals.” It states that the person performing euthanasia should have the technical competence to administer it. And the preferred method shall always be by injection. Further, the AO states that euthanasia and slaughter shall always be done away from public view.
