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.

Stay tuned to aspcarescue.org for more news to come. Follow the conversation on Twitter using hashtag #367rescue. If now is a good time for you to give, please consider making a gift to the ASPCA.

Are any of the puppies coming to New England - I lost my girl (pit/lab mix)after 14 years and my house is so empty... love to adopt !!

I am a proud giver to the ASPCA. I truly believe in your cause! I wish I had the ability to handle seeing suffering animals and to rescue them like you do, so I thank GOD every day that there are organizations and people like you! Now if we can do to the abusers what they have done to the poor dogs (& animals!) by keeping them in heavy chains, starve them, and put them in heat without water & make them fight for their lives, I bet animal abuse would not continue likes it does. That SHOULD be there jail time!
