Three Ways You Can Help End Dog Fighting!

Thursday, July 12, 2012 - 1:00pm

Dog fighting stinks. Forced into lives of abuse and neglect, dogs used for fighting often spend their entire lives tethered to short, heavy chains. They receive little socialization and can go for days without food or clean water. And if that weren’t bad enough, when they are old enough to fight, many die of blood loss, shock and exhaustion. Others are simply killed for failing to win.

From the very beginning, these dogs are fighting for their lives—and they are counting on you for help. Here are three ways you can take action to end this cruel sport.

Make the Call
If you suspect dog fighting in your neighborhood, please contact the police or your local animal control officer. This simple act could mean the difference between life and death for dogs in danger.

Fight for Stronger Laws
A great way to help is to take action on dog fighting legislation in your state. Sign up to become a member of the ASPCA Advocacy Team!

Wear It Proud
Wear one of our "No one wins in a dog fight" message tees and help spread the word that dog fighting needs to end.

People who are involved in dog fighting are generally degenerates of society. They already involved in other criminal activities and they are just bad people in general. This wrong from all aspects. Does Micheal Vick consider himself a good Christian? Because God does not approve of any kind of Genocide.

I can't even understand why anyone would want to watch these helpless and in pain animals fight to the death. It's just so wrong on so many different levels. These dogs don't have a say in what happens to them. It is our responsibility to care for and love these animals. Anyone who neglects this privilege of being able to help animals and instead treats them as trash needs to take a trip to their local prison...and stay there until they realize their wrong...or die.
