We recently heard from Tim Rickey, ASPCA Vice President of Field Investigations and Response, about how the dogs rescued in a three-state dog fighting raid are doing.

Today, we’re excited to let you know that the very first six dogs from the case are being transferred to animal shelters for adoption! That means they’re one step closer to finding loving families.

Three of the dogs will go to Wayside Waifs in Kansas City, Missouri.  Two are going to the Kansas Humane Society in Wichita, Kansas. And the Kansas-based Great Plains SPCA is receiving one dog. These ASPCA partner organizations each sent volunteers to help out at our temporary shelter, and these lucky dogs will be heading home with the volunteers.

For legal reasons, the rest of the dogs rescued in our three-state raid remain in our care at a state-of-the-art temporary shelter, where they’re receiving lots of love and care, too.

Stay tuned to for updates on this case.
