Slideshow: Dogs Rescued from Fighting Ring

Earlier this year, the ASPCA assisted in a three-state dog fighting bust alongside the FBI, Missouri Highway Patrol and several other agencies.

When we found these dogs, many were doomed to live their whole lives tethered by heavy chains—and on the day of the raid, many were left outside to suffer through a blizzard.

Today, after months under the care of our behaviorists, veterinarians and tireless responders, dogs rescued from this raid are thriving. In fact, some have already headed to rescue for adoption! Still others remain in our care.

We wanted to show you some of these dogs’ happy faces and thank you for helping us make their rescue possible. We couldn’t have taken on this massive operation without your help!

This is incredible news. There aren't enough words or thank you's to express how grateful I am for ASPCA. You people are truly angels that walk on our earth and I can only say don't stop what you are doing and THANK YOU from the very depths of my heart.

PETA most certainly does kill animals and all other rescue groups know this. Almost 90 percent of the animals they take in they kill.

Be wary of the crap you hear about how bad P.E.T.A. is.. It comes from No Kill Nation whose people LIE out of one side of their mouths and ask for donations from the other side. Always ask for a catalog of rescues (with PICTURES of them!) that they personally have had BOOTS ON THE GROUND for (natural disasters, dog fighting rings, puppy mill raids, factory farms exposures) .. ZERO. Then ask for a list of the bad laws they have fought in State legislatures AND Federal...and kept from law or had repealed.. and then ask for any GOOD animal welfare laws they fought for and had enacted in either States OR Federal government. As far as I can see... ALL answers to these questions.. TRUE answers... is a big fat ZERO. On the other hand.. ask how much money they have taken in as donations FUELED by their constant TRASHING of PETA, and the ASPCA and HSUS.. all of whom can provide MANY examples for the scenarios I listed above. ALL of THESE charities will also give you their books showing how much went to administration and how much for the lobbying, rescues, undercover (very dangerous, no NKN person has EVER volunteered!) work, etc. I would have anything NKN handed over looked at by a pro. They came into Dade County and raked in cash and talked a lot... and yet our Animal Shelter put out a notice yesterday... DOGS AND CATS OVER 6 MONTHS OLD ARE FREE FOR THE TAKING! You KNOW that is just a recipe for their continued, if different, SUFFERING! Miami Dade has killed more animals THIS year, since NKN started TALKING... than in their entire HISTORY.

I wonder of these fine dogs we see here were the bait dogs or the real "trained to fight dogs"? These dogs look like such good dogs I would be amazed.?.

I'm so happy they were rescued and given a second chance.

The humane society does nothing but collect your money for their high salaries. The ASPCA does the real work in helping dogs and cats. Give to the ASPCA not the humane society.

I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT ANY OF THESE PLACES BUT GOOD. I DO NOT KNOW WHO TOLD YOU THAT BUT YOU NEED TO LOOK UP ARTICLES ABOUT THESE PLACES & SEE THAT THEY ARE REALLY & TRULY SAVING ALL ANIMALS,DOGS,CATS,HORSES ,COWS,CALFS. SO PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN TO ANY NEGATIVITY ABOUT THESE PEOPLE .

Why these things do not happen in my country? I live in Argentina, there is no police to animals, I wish everything was as it is in USA
