Training dogs to fight for profit is an abuse that goes unnoticed far too often in the United States. While some high-profile dog fighting rings, such as that run by Michael Vick, have gained national attention, smaller operations often slip past mainstream media.

Dogs in fighting rings are physically abused by the people who keep them. They are starved, trained to exhibit aggressive behavior, and are deprived their basic needs as sentient beings. The industry is brutal and unforgiving, forcing dogs to fight to the death all for the purpose of creating profit.

Luckily, however, there are many organizations working tirelessly to end this sad reality for fighting dogs across the U.S. The Humane Society of the United States has been instrumental in orchestrating the rescue of dogs that live in fighting rings across the country. As the video explains, in August of 2013, the HSUS assisted the U.S. Federal Government in a multi-state series of dog fighting raids. The result of this series was the rescue of 367 dogs.

Since their rescue, the dogs have been given the love and care they were starved of as fighting dogs. HSUS volunteers have spent countless hours helping to rehabilitate the dogs, teaching them how to trust humans and finding them new forever homes.

Watch the amazing recovery of these beautiful dogs and see the happy ending they have found thanks to the incredible people at HSUS.
