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.

Every night I ask God up above to save the innocent animals that have been abused
and killed for profit. Someday, those who hurt these animals, all animals will be judged. Until then, I am so thankful for the ASPCA to help our creatures that have been hurt. Thank you.

God bless you all for helping these furry babies. They are such sweet animals...if only people will give them a chance and not make them fight. So sad to see these innocent animals forced to fight and have such scars. The people who make dogs fight should be shot.


I wish I could adopt them all. Thank you for saving these wonderful animals.

Thank-you so very very much for being there and showing these dogs the affection and caring that is in the video. Makes me want to add a pitbull to my family of border collie rescues. The punishment for cruelty to animals is way below what is needed. I will continue to contact my state senator and representative and lobby for stricter, stronger laws. Please do the same, people out there in internet world. Never give up!!!

Why not make them fight each other to death. They are the real animals.


The only way to stop this is if we don't stop.
