Love this video by Paw Justice! This video demonstrates the lifestyle of dogfighting and how it affects everyone involved, even responsible dog owners. Dogfighting is a felony in all 50 states because it causes immeasurable suffering to animals, and promotes insensitivity to that suffering and enthusiasm for violence. Dogs used in these events often die of blood loss, shock, dehydration, exhaustion, or infection hours or even days after the fight. Other animals are often sacrificed as well. Please share this video with your social networks and raise awareness about the harsh reality of dogfighting and what YOU can do to prevent it.
“Loved the fact that the bikers came in to save the day! It helps to illustrate one thing that pits and humans have in common. Don’t judge a book by its cover! He/she may look intimidating, but under that hard shell beats a heart of pure gold!!”
What can I do to help stop dogfighting?
- Learn how to spot the signs of dogfighting. If you suspect dogfighting activity, alert your local law enforcement agency and urge officials to contact The HSUS for practical tools, advice and assistance.
- Post our dogfighting reward posters [PDF] in your community. For free posters, send us an email (include your name, address and the number of posters you’d like). Learn about our Pets for Life program and how to get involved in your community.
- If you live in one of the states where being a spectator or other aspects of dogfighting is still a misdemeanor, please write to your state legislators and urge them to make it a felony.
- Share videos like the above with your social networks and friends!
