The ASPCA, at the request of the United States Attorney’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), is on the ground assisting in what is believed to be the second largest dog fighting raid in U.S. history. More than 350 dogs, many without clear access to food and fresh water and forced to live tethered to heavy chains in makeshift, filthy dog houses, have been rescued.
ASPCA responders in Alabama and Mississippi helped manage the removal and transport of the dogs to temporary emergency shelters in undisclosed locations. Responders are also providing veterinary care and behavior enrichment.
With your support, we’ll continue to care for these dogs as they begin to experience life for the first time without being forced to fight. When you make a gift today, you’ll help us provide these dogs with the care they so desperately need, and you’ll help us care for victims of animal cruelty across the country.
The ASPCA is dedicated to ending dog fighting and all blood sports in the United States. Thank you for joining us in our efforts.
