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.

I would love to see the people who did this to them chained and beaten. These poor animals. Thank God you saved them.


I really wish that were possible. I swear this stuff tears me apart and I get so angry that nothing happens to these jerks from hell.


Thank God for the ASPCA! I am so happy there are people out there that can go in and help these fur babies! They deserve love, not the hate and discontent of the people that fight them. Thank you for taking care of these dogs, and may the people that were fighting them have a long, long stay in prison!!


This is why I donate to the ASPCA and other animal charities. It gives me hope, knowing that we can stop at least some of the cruelty in the world.

after living in FL 15 yrs it amazes me how the rednecks here chain up a dog and leave it. Neuter their dogs and cats? no way.
Animal abuse is cultural we really need animal care and compassion taught to the baby rednecks early on in school. Similar attitude regarding owning horses, flips me out how DUMB these folks are.
you go ASPCA - from a regular supporter in No. FL


You are absolutely right - education is the only true, long-term answer. It starts out as stupidity, grows into callousness and culminates in heartless great. I hear you; I've been in FL 25 years.


I'm so glad that these dogs and puppies are finally going to get the chance to fine the love and caring they so deserve. And I hope these other assholes will get what is coming to them!! And more not just a slap on the wrist like Vick did. I still think he needs to pay for what he did. How about 75% of his contract going to help fund the care and vet bills that these dogs have!!!
I'm not in a way that I can help as of yet, but once I am then I would be glad to donate to this cause and others like them. GOD be with those who help the helpless and the ones that endure the pain and suffering.


I am very thankful for all what you are doing for such adorable creatures. Thank you very much to all.


These A-holes must be made to pay for all the care and food and shelter for these poor dogs for the rest of their lives....the jerks lives! They should never be able to own a pet, not even a fish. Must give half their wages to rescues, never ever be able to collect ss, welfare, nothing!!! Thank you ASPCA from all of us who do care! God bless you and the animals you rescue!

I wish I could take these ugly-humans who do this to dogs and tie them up without food and water in extreme heat and then torture them until they bleed, I want to spit in there faces. I dont know why God made such humans, they do not deserve to be alive.
If I had my life to do over I would definitely do something with dogs, pets.
I am a nurse and I sometimes would rather take care of aniamls.
