Do you wish you could do more to help end dog fighting? You might be surprised by just how much you can help—especially when you use the toolkit the ASPCA developed with the U.S. Department of Justice.

Initially created for law enforcement, Dogfighting: A Guide for Community Actiongives you the tools to recognize the violent crimes of dog fighting in your community.

We know that sometimes the hardest thing about getting involved is figuring out where to start. Our toolkit will teach you how to build an animal task force in your community, demonstrate ways to partner with local law enforcement, and even provide useful tips on how to handle the animal victims involved.

You can download the full toolkit to combat dog fighting free of charge here. Also, please consider taking the free, self-paced online course Combating Dogfighting, which accompanies the Toolkit. Without your compassion and willingness to take action, our struggle to end dog fighting would be that much harder—thank you!

Someone needs to put a stop to Dog Fights and the owners of the dogs who are in ring amongs those who bet on the dogs need to be put in jail and don't let them have anymore pets or help with such animal cruelty to dogs. Dogs need good homes and need the help of those who will take time to love and care for them.

We all need to do whatever is necessary to stop to this cruelty. I can't imagine what these people are like. Dogs are very loving creatures and deserve to be loved and cared for in return.


What is wrong with people? It sickens me to see stuff like this.


These people (punk asses)need to get off there asses & make there own $.or need to be straved,beaten,etc like they do to these poor dogs.put into a ring with one of the dogs they do this to.let people watch that dog tear them up bitches.

Dog fighting is a huge problem in S.C. People actually raise mixed-breed dogs on chains in their backyards to sell to dog fighters. I heard on the news that the national Humane Society was offering $5000 for info leading to a conviction, and I called the nearest chapter, hoping to get a poster or flier stating that. They promised to find out, but never called me back. I think that surely a reward of that size would induce these people to give up the names of the ones who buy their poor dogs. I don't believe that dog fighting is a very high priority for law enforcement here, even though it is very common.
