AHS Saves Dogs in Dogfighting Raid - II



Humane Society hopes to change the destiny of bait dogs saved from a dogfighting ring

Recently, the Society was contacted by Newark Animal Control who requested that AHS ACOs respond to an organized dogfight in progress. Due to the dangers inherent in such a raid in this particular area, the Society requested and was accompanied by the local Newark Police Department.

This dog was rescued from one of the dogfighting rings and waits for a home. Please ask about File# 104717.

Though they rushed to the scene, sadly it was too late for one innocent dog that was found mauled to death.

For the nine other dogs rescued from the dogfighting, the heartbreaking task of evaluating and treating these poor dogs began.

Waiting for another a chance at a new and loving life is this young dog, File #104399.

The dogs were tied up and waiting for the grim task of being used as bait and ultimately tortured and killed. Among them were two starved and neutered males. The neutered dogs were likely former pets either stolen or offered “free to a good home” by unsuspecting individuals who could no longer care for them. Dogfighters have no need to neuter animals, and these dogs are starved to further weaken them so they are perfect bait for the stronger unneutered dogs.

Another young pit bull who will be looking for a loving home is File #104719.

Also among the dogs, a four month tiny female puppy who’s life took a dramatic turn when the society found her just in time. Puppies are also used often for bait. Pups are often thrown in between two fighting dogs to be torn apart until the dogs redirect on each other.

The public may be unaware of how barbaric and how widespread dogfighting is. They also need to be aware of how dangerous it is to offer an unwanted pet free to a good home on places such as Craig’s list. This has been an ongoing problem in certain areas by groups who frequently are involved with organized dogfighting rings.

Hoping for some joy in life is this worried young dog rescued from one of the dogfighting rings. Please ask about File #104400.

For now the long process of rehabilitation begins for these terrified dogs. The dogs are being cared for with the hopes that their destiny can truly change now; the end goal being a loving safe home for as many of them as are deemed safe.

If you would like to help to care for these lost souls who need to be rescued, your donations will help us to help them and regain the trust that others had betrayed.Please donate today and help!

Another dog who can now look forward to a new destiny, her file # is 104801F.

The Associated Humane Societies is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, off of Rt. 1 and 9, near the Newark International Airport, convenient to the NJ Turnpike, Route 22 and the Garden State Parkway.

The Society is open 7 days a week between noon and 4 p.m. For more information, call 973-824-7080 or contact us.
