Get Tough on Dog Fighting

By Marissa Wetterau

In honor of National Dog Fighting Awareness Day (NDFAD) on Wednesday, April 8, the ASPCA is asking animal advocates across the country to help them Get Tough on Dog Fighting. This brutal form of animal cruelty occurs in every part of the country and in every type of community, and it must be stopped.

They are working to eradicate dog fighting by assisting in raids and rescues alongside law enforcement agencies. The ASPCA is assisting by advocating for stronger laws and sentencing for those who commit this terrible crime.
