In June, we told you about a dog fighting bust the ASPCA and New York Police Department conducted in the Bronx. Today, we’re happy to share some good news: 26 of the dogs have found placements with rescue groups, and another seven of them have placements in the works!

This is a picture of one of Michael Vick's infamous fighting dogs that was rehabilitated and is now a therapy dog. The picture on the poster (while it is endorsed by PETA... gross) is how the authorities found him. My full pitbull is also a registered therapy dog! He hangs out with kiddos with autism all day. How can people want to euthanize something with that much love and patience?

Never give up on a second chance. WE should be so resiliant.

ASPCA. We adopted our kitten from Young Williams in Knoxville. Best decision ever! She wasn't very lively at the shelter, but she really came alive at home and we just love her to death. She's our ninja kitty :)

Just Do Something! ♥ We adopted our dogs from animal haven in Merriam, KS.

Giving Pit Bulls a Second Chance. They placed 4th out of 122 breeds for their temperament. Absolutley amazing breed!

Dogs of any age or breed can be affected by dog fighting. Read the story of Silver, an 11 year-old Lab mix rescued from a multi-state dog fighting raid in 2013.
