Dogfighting is a cruel and barbaric act that is not only harmful to the animals, it is also a danger to the community. To understand this topic, we have invited dogfighting expert from the Humane Society of the United States, Janette Reever, to discuss what is dogfighting, what isn't, and what it means for Pit Bulls. We also touch on the breed, breed specific legislation, responsible sheltering, and responsible ownership of these dogs.
Dogfighting is a felony in all 50 states. If you suspect animal fighting, contact your local animal control officer, police department, office of the inspector general, or our friends at HSUS. You are not only saving the dogs, you could be saving people as well.
