It is the HSUS’s policy that all dogs seized from animal fighting operations be treated as individuals. Professionals individually evaluated all of the dogs rescued from this operation for potential placement with HSUS's Dogfighting Rescue Coalition placement partners.
The Dogfighting Rescue Coalition (DRC) is a national network of animal shelters and rescue groups dedicated to giving every dog rescued from dogfighting operations a chance at a new life. After a dogfighting bust, DRC members take in the abused canine victims, work with them, and ultimately place them into loving homes.
With the help of the DRC, the success rate at finding homes for dogs rescued from fighting operations has been phenomenal. Despite their trauma and abuse, many dogs have gone on to become Certified Therapy Dogs, service dogs for wounded veterans, and Canine Good Citizen certificate recipients.
Most importantly, each one goes on to become a wonderful and loyal family pet. Their stories are a testament to the incredible potential inside every dog.
