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.

I agree they need to punish these sick inhumane (so called people) to the highest degree possible, tie them to trees outside in the blazing sun without food and especially without water continually beating them with chains and anything that would cause bodily injury that they will beg for death then start all over again and let them rot outside so the buzzards & animals finish the circle of life

HEAR! HEAR!! I so agree!!! I am an ASPCA Guardian and I know how difficult it would be to work with this reality day in-day out ... my deepest admiration and support to all those who do what they do within ASPCA and any other way to give these beloved furry "friends" the care and affection they are so deserving of! Bless each and all of you!

I like your idea. The punishment is not severe enough right now.

I like your idea. The punishment is not severe enough right now. That is why these scums of the Earth continue to make a profit by subjecting dogs to a life of misery. Anyone who is responsible for a dog's death, in any way, even if the dog is rescued, but is deemed dangerous and must be euthanized, he or she should also be put to death, not jail because we, the taxpayers, have to pay for these morons stay in jail. Dogs are not born viscious, they are damaged by people. Dogs are what they live. The street-named pit bull is a great companion, if raised or trained properly. Dog is God spelled backwards. All a dog wants is to love and be loved. I love my two dogs. They are loyal, great protectors, and don't judge, like people do.
