371 dogs were seized by federal and state authorities last month in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Texas in what authorities say was the second largest dogfighting ring in the United States.
The dogs were placed in the temporary care of the ASPCA and the Humane Society of the United States. More than 250 of them — including puppy No. 917 — were brought to a converted air-conditioned warehouse, where the ASPCA is caring for them. The others are in the care of the Humane Society.
If he hadn’t been rescued, 917 and the other puppies would have likely become typical dogs bred to fight.
The ASPCA’s rehabilitation program is turning these former fighting dogs into loving dogs.
