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!

I've been a giving member of ASPCA for nearly 40 yrs. and I don't think they are doing anything but good for as many animals that they can. I also believe in many of PETA's views, just not some of the radical ways they try to get things done. It has been my experience in life that someone or something (ie:government, corporations, unhappy people) that doesn't want humanitarian organizations to grow, will falsely accuse them of doing the very things that they are trying to stop. They have no proof, but merely accusing in such cases is all it takes to destroy humanitarian efforts. Its a shame that some people are so easily swayed.

On the chilly morning of November 13th, while Win Animal Rights Activists were outside the ASPCA pleading for Oreo’s life, Anthony, an employee at the ASPCA was making arrangements to come into work on his day off so he could be with his friend when she took her last breath. Anthony had spent much time with Oreo throughout her stay at the ASPCA and he knew she didn’t deserve to die.

drop a copy in the mail to the ASPCA

The ASPCA wanted the public to believe Oreo was aggressive, unpredictable and vicious and for these reasons she was supposed to be killed with a muzzle on. Thanks to her faithful friend Anthony her muzzle was removed prior to her execution. Anthony and another played with Oreo and made two plaster casts of her paw. Moments before she died Anthony took a picture of himself and his friend in one last attempt to show the world that she was not all the things that the ASPCA said she was. And with that, after only being given three and a half short months in which to recover, her lethal injection was delivered and Oreo was dead.That was a sad day I hope the pups there find a home ??

Anthony was fired from the ASPCA shortly after he spoke out against Ed Sayres, Victoria Wells Here the link http://bslnews.org/2011/10/21/aspca-unjustly-kills-animals-upcoming-vigil-for-oreo-one-victim-we-will-never-forget-%E2%80%93-november-12th-300pm/

Hi,
I had asked before but never got an answer. I have rescued 2 dogs and sent them for training. They are absolutely wonderful with people and children but hate other animals. I would like them to live side by side with my cat and take hem to the ark for a walk, which there is no way I can do now. Would your behaviorists help? Could you reply on that post please? Thank you.

Such great news!!!!!

Such wonderful, precious lives saved from the horrors of the monsters who used them for profit. Good to see them so happy. Thanks to everyone who helped. May you find all the other monsters and animal abusers out there and succeed in many more outcomes like these. God bless you all.

I will continue to support ASPCA and the awesome works they do. Thank you ASPCA for a job that is more than well done.

Not all animals who come to these organizations can be saved. That is just a fact. If an organization receives an animal in severely poor condition, it may not be feasible to put the animal through numerous procedures. The animal has to have at least a fighting chance. No one likes euthanasia. Each animal is evaluated and then decisions are made taking all things into consideration.

God bless all of you that rescue and work with these poor dogs that have been subjected to such cruel treatment. Our laws concerning dog fighting are not strict enough and the penalties do not match the crime! Confiscate all their assets and give them no less then five years prison time.Make them pay for their cruelty.Let the people out of prison for minor infractions ( like smoking a joint) and there will be more then enough room for these sadistic monsters ! Thank you again for what you are doing for all these dogs!
