Plucked from a dog-fighting ring

Dana is a gentle pup who was rescued from a dog fighting ring in California. Dog fighting is an insidious and abusive “sport.” It destroys canines physically and mentally. It is also illegal and punishable by fines and jail time.

Dana was lucky and was saved just in time. But many young pups are not as lucky. If you suspect anyone of dog fighting or animal cruelty, please call your local law enforcement immediately.

And find forever homes they did! They all found adoring families in record time.
