Rescued Dog

As many of you know, last weekend the ASPCA and responders from The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) removed more than 360 dogs from dog fighting properties in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Texas. Many are emaciated, with scars and wounds consistent with dog fighting. They’re spending their first days learning what it’s like to receive adequate care.

The dogs and puppies are safe now. They’ll never suffer in extreme heat without access to water. They’ll never be chained to cinder blocks and car tires again. And they’ll never be forced to fight.

Right now, the ASPCA is providing shelter, veterinary care, healthy food and much-needed attention and affection to hundreds of dogs and puppies. Our work is far from over. It’s a massive undertaking that will require months of food and supplies and man hours to ensure these dogs get the best possible care. Veterinary professionals, behavior professionals and so many others will be involved.

Please take a moment to watch and share our rescue video. You’ll see some of the dogs we rescued, as well as the real conditions these dogs were forced to endure.

Stay tuned to aspcarescue.org for more news to come. Follow the conversation on Twitter using hashtag #367rescue. If now is a good time for you to give, please consider making a gift to the ASPCA.

Thank God for humane people left and consistently working to prevent suffering to other animals. Why does the media not cover this story and make people aware of these types of organizations? The entertainment world and Hollywood drive our media and cultural. How pitiful! All MSNBC, CNN, etc, can talk about is Hannah Montana, Brittany, and other pathetic role models; but they continue to give them coverage. If you ignore bad behavior it may Just go away! Start getting some backbone and cover stories that really matter. Thank you to all the people who worked and saved these creatures! God Bless

I honestly wasn't going to watch the video. I hurt when I see these poor abused animals. I'd like to hear what happens to the owners! Are these owners given any jail time? If they have "properties" they can have stiff fines and liens against them? Maybe confiscate the property. There has to be some punishment that makes it less attractive than the money they bring in from doing this awful crime. Our laws just don't protect the innocent anymore!

I hope that the "owner's" of these dogs are sentenced to the same fate that they placed upon those that they were suppose to take care of; Chains around their necks, short leashes, and having to endure starvation.

Great work. It is hard to understand how humans can be so cruel to such a wonderful animal.

Jennifer Barnes

Jail isn't enough for these monsters! I am not a cruel person but "an eye for an eye" might send a message in this case.

I support the local branches of the humane society and the SPCA. They always need supplies, blankets, bedding, volunteers, cleaning supplies. If you can't donate a lot you can donate a little even time to walk the dogs or pet and play with the animals. Be aware and report animal cruelty. People who are cruel to animals don't respect life and sometimes grow into monsters who prey upon people.

It is important to support national efforts like these, but PLEASE support your local shelter with your time and monetary donations. It is there that the animals in YOUR community are saved. You will be surprised how a little money can go a long way, when there are few paid staff and many volunteers. Get to know your local shelter!!
