Video: Inside Look at Massive Dog Fighting Bust

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.

Thanks so much to your commitment to these beautiful pups! I pray and hope that they all get homes where they can be members of a human "pack" and loved!

Thank you for saving these innocent victims who could not save themselves.

I am so proud of the SPCA, you all are doing a great service for these dogs. I look at your show everytime it is on. I had no idea that there were so many people abusing animals like that!! I pray for the safety of these animals and hope that u will continue to help them. I have a Pitt Bull and he is not a bad dog it's how u train these dogs!! Shame on the ones that take advantage of these animals!!!

God Bless the ASPCA! You are a wonderful loving organization. I just hope these 2 footed animals get punished to the fullest..

god will surely punish these despicable people!

By the time God punishes them they will have had way too much time to do way too much damage. I prefer the idea of dragging them out into the street and kicking the shit out of them. Now that's justice.

I think we need vigilantly justice in order to finally get rid of this crap. Our justice system is way too lenient on this kind of crime so it just goes on and on. We need some old fashioned mob type discouragement from wanting to enter into this business. you know, remove the dogs and blow up the house where fights go on.. keep that up for a while and no one will want to host a dog fight!

I cannot express enough gratitude to you beautiful people, for all that you do in rescuing, rehabilitating and saving these innocent and helpless creatures. Thank you! Thank you!, from the bottom of my heart! I will continue to donate and support your worthy and necessary organization, because if it wasn't for the ASPCA, these animals truly would have no hope. God bless you all.
