I often come across bait dogs after their rescue or adoption, and I absolutely love sharing these heartwarming stories. However, I cannot emphasize enough how crucial this video is when it comes to unveiling the revelation of these dogs’ life-changing journeys.
One way to raise awareness about the grim lives of dogs before they are rescued and to emphasize the importance of advocating for stricter penalties against dog fighting worldwide is by sharing this video. Tom McPhee, the Executive Director of the World Animal Awareness Society (WA2S) and Producer Director of the American Strays series, joins the Michigan Humane Society Officers on a distressing journey. Together, they expose the heart-wrenching reality of fresh canines being used as bait for fighting dogs. The cameras capture the appalling living conditions these innocent dogs are subjected to, as they endure broken bones, untreated wounds, tied lips, maggots infestations, and severe malnutrition.
“We deal with dog fights consistently,” remarks Jenny Jackson, an officer at the Michigan Humane Society. She goes on to explain that the participants in these fights are typically adolescents. “These young individuals take pit bulls, tether them in deserted yards, and organize these fights in parks. They often use whatever dogs they can get their hands on,” she adds. Unfortunately, these dogs rarely receive the necessary medical attention, along with proper provisions such as food, water, and shelter. In many cases, they are simply neglected and left to fend for themselves.”
Luckily for these two pit bulls, the Michigan Humane Society and WA2S stepped in to lend a helping hand. Nevertheless, numerous other dogs are in desperate need of rescue.
