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.

I wish I could throw those so called humans in a ring and let them fight each other. Thank you for all your hard work. We need to be more vigilant regarding dog fighting and puppy mills.

Men who use dogs to fight are sick bastards and we need to execute them!

It is so heartbreaking that this can even happen , I am so sick to my stomach with all the horrible things that happen to animals . But it is really awesome that these dogs were saved . Aside from this I ask you why is it ok for animals to be used and experimented on by drug companies and Universities and thrown away at the end but that is ok as they get away with this time and time again , its because of money and it needs to stop , they should be treated just like anyone else harming an animal but they are not , they are above the law , and I am so sick and tired of living in a world that lets this happen . The powers that be need to be held accountable for their actions and it needs to start now . Iv'e had enough but yet I'm powerless to stop it .

I wish I were a rich woman so I could use my wealth to support you in putting these bastards under the jail house! Instead I pray and support in the small ways that I can. God Bless all of you!

Great Job ASPCA & keep up the hard work you do! I thank God every day for you. We've got to put a stop to this inhumane & cruel treatment to the sweet & innocent dogs who cannot speak up for themselves. These criminals who run these dog fighting rings along with the attendees/participants should get MUCH harsher treatment including MUCH longer jail time !!!

I can't understand why some people are sooo cruel to animals. I think they are the animals. I have a Pit and a Maltese. They are MY BABIES. ASPCA keep up the good work you are doing. BLESS YOU !!!!
