ASPCA says: It's the 1st annual National Dog Fighting Awareness Day

This time last year, the ASPCA was on the ground in Missouri assisting in a massive, three-state dog fighting raid. After rescuing over one hundred dogs that day, we all breathed a sigh of relief. They were finally safe. Safe from the cold, safe from the neglect, and safe from the pain.

But that sense of relief was fleeting. Though those dogs will never have to fight again, dog fighting has maintained an aggressive hold over our society. And it's not just happening in small, dark corners of the country—it's happening everywhere. From densely-populated communities to famous football teams, dog fighting sometimes eludes the general public's conscience for reasons we can't fully understand.

But we refuse to give up.

The ASPCA is committed to ending dog fighting. We have designated today, April 8, as the first annual National Dog Fighting Awareness Day. We created this day to advance the conversation about dog fighting, and to encourage animal lovers across the country to take action against this brutal form of cruelty.

We believe that there will come a time when dog fighting is seen for what it really is: the shameful pastime of cowards. But until that time comes, we will continue to fight for the victims so that they don't have to.

Please join the movement and take a stand. Make a gift to the ASPCA today.
