Celebrate National Dog Fighting Awareness Day with 6 Rescues Ready for Adoption

Last August, the ASPCA played a major role in the second-largest dog fighting raid in U.S. history. The raid, which spanned Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia, led to the rescue of hundreds of dogs ranging in age from several days to 10-12 years. At the time, we knew that these dogs would have long journeys ahead of them—many suffered physically and emotionally at the hands of their abusers.'s picture
