The ASPCA is currently on the ground assisting the Milwaukee Police Department and the District Attorney of Milwaukee County with a multi-site dog fighting raid in the City of Milwaukee. Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission is transporting, sheltering and caring for the dogs.
On April 3, eight search warrants were executed at eight crime scenes, where 23 suspected fighting dogs were seized. Investigators also discovered blood on basement walls as well as other evidence of dog fighting, including treadmills, wound treatment supplies and muscle building supplements.
Dog fighting is a felony in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and the ASPCA is committed to putting a stop to this barbaric form of cruelty forever. With your support, we can end dog fighting. Together we can save dogs from this violent abuse.
