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!

Thank God for all of you and THANK YOU!!!!:-)


How inhuman some of us can get! Why do they use these lovely dogs for their own profit without concerning much for the welfare and health of these dogs! Someday, what they have done will surely come back to them. I really pity these dogs!

God bless those people who do care about these dogs! Congratulations, SPCA! It really breaks my heart to see those poor souls being subjected to this horrifying thing! Now, they are very happy and it's all because of you, SPCA!

Cute dogs

These dogs are cute and adorable! How can someone put them in a situation that's so gruesome? I'm so thankful that they have been rescued. It breaks my heart seeing them being used for money with a high price on these dogs' part!
