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!

See, every dog just wants to love and be loved. It's beautiful to see dogs like these happy and loved. You're storing up treasure in heaven with your efforts.

These dogs are beautiful and I love the happy faces. Don't forget about Best Friends and the wonderful work they have done with the Vick dogs.


So happy for them! Thank you ASPCA for providing a brighter future for these dogs! :')


How wonderful these dogs get to become people pets and are able (I pray) to find a forever home!!!!

Congratulations adoptees!
Good luck future adoptees!


The ASPCA does amazing things helping animals not just cats and dogs, they defend and provide vet care and training to put animals in good homes. I support them and adopt pets from shelters not breeders.


Thank you ASPCA for all that you do. You are as awesome as the strong and resilient animals you help are. Beautiful article on the rehabbed Pitbulls. They are the best as are you. THANK YOU!!!!


It is so good to see these dogs with happy faces now that they have been rescued! Thanks ASPCA!
