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 am a monthly automatic doner. Please, do it. It's easy and I know if more did it we could save more animals.


you restore my faith in the human race for all the wonderful things you do. Saving these animals is something I always wanted to do and help with. I am a donator to the ASCPA and I wish I could give and do more. I thank God for all you and thank you so much for caring about the innocent animals who deserve to be loved and cared for .


I also agree with Maryanne and firmly agree with the same pain that is inflicted on an animals should be done to that person. That should be their punishment !!!

Thank you all for your love of animals and your devotion to protecting and rescuing them! There are No WORDS to describe the horrible feeling that we feel for these abused babies! Thanks again! You help restore the faith in mankind!


There are not enough words in my vocabulary to say how much of your work is appreciated in helping to rescue all the animals that you have and will continue to rescue. Your organization and many others that do this work are greatly appreciated. God bless everyone one of you and please continue to help these innocent animals from the cruel treatment that they deal with. But also please be sure to prosecute those responsible for such inhumane treatment and be sure that they receive the harshest punishment for their acts. Thanks you again.

Your work is so rewarding and essential in this cruel world we all live in. These animals are forced to live in such unbelievable conditions and without your guardian angels out looking for them, it would continue to be a world not worth saving. May god bless each and everyone of you who live what they believe and make a difference to those who can not help themselves.

ASPCA ALL who help with this rescues God bless you ! Keep the great work up there is SO much work to do to stop these sick people . I'm praying that they will go to jail for a very along time. If you can do this to animals what can you do to a human that what scares me.
