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.

great video and a job well done.. legislation should change so that all parties involved in this ruthless crime shoud be held accountable INCLUDING the bidders or
people who bet on the fights to profit. without demand there would be no commodity for this awful act. just like a john patronizing a hooker.

I just want to say that, i hope God (who must be so happy for the work you do) will keep you and guide you in all the wonderful work you do for His gentle creatures that He created for our joy and NOT for our sad amusement and gain. Thank you so much for all you do for these beautiful and sweet angels. THANK YOU ASPCA!!!


The laws in this country are not strict enough to deter this kind of abuse. It is time that animal lovers unite and force our lawmakers to charge these criminals with lenghthy sentences and register as animal abusers.


Thanks a lot ASPCA for your wonderfull help....ASPCA the dog's ANGEL.....El angel de los perritos....

Million de Gracias ASPCA


Those who repay unconditional love with unconditional cruelty are the lowest life form. Thank you ASPCA for giving humanity a better name.
