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.

Thank God for all your efforts, and all your hard work to rescue all these poor little souls. We need to fight for much tougher laws to punish people who use and abuse these beautiful animals. Thank you

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for saving these sweet helpless animals...I do Shih Tzu and even one rescue can run into thousands of dollars for vet care...

Many thanks to you and all the people who make it their life's work and job to actually do the part most of us can not. You do the HARD part. I just started donating monthly but it is those who sacrifice their time to actually do the rescuing that are true heroes. Society has come a long way, but we need new laws. I think those who commit acts of neglect and cruelty against animals should be punished by the courts with the same penalty as if it was a child that was victimized. When that day comes then can we truly call ourselves civilized. Hopefully, it will happen in my lifetime. "A society may be judged by the way their animals are treated." (Quoted by Gahndi) We have a ways to go.

I agree with Stormy. They should suffer the same way they made those animals suffer.

I cannot adequately express my gratitude for all of the hard, relentless work ASPCA and other coordinating agencies do on behalf of the precious animals that deserve so much better than they often receive at the hands of base, demented humans. You are not like God, as an earlier comment stated. He is in a class of His own. But, you are certainly his agents, working to help the helpless, his created creatures that I know He loves. May God bless you and keep you!!!

I'm happy for those out in this world that are doing this brave part. I'm not happy with the amount of money I pledge once a month and vow to return to the amount I was about to contribute over ten years ago.
God bless those and Godspeed.

I donate monthly to ASPCA and wish I could do a lot more!! I'm sooo tired of humans treating animals so cruelly. We are SUPPOSED to be the superior species - but I highly disagree with that! You don't see animals treating each other as we do them. It's a shame and if I had one wish, it would be to help all the animals in this world live in a loving happy home where they suffer no more. God Bless you for all the work you do - without you I'm afraid there wouldn't be much hope!

You are angels. These poor dogs deserve so much more. Pray for stiff, painful punishment for the offenders!
