The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) rescued more than 350 canines from dog fighting ring locations in Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi in one of the largest dog fighting ring raids in history. Signs of neglect and cruelty could be seen everywhere, and these photographs demonstrate exactly how terribly these pets had been neglected.
Timmy was one of the ASPCA’s youngest puppies to be rescued, and he went on to become the organization’s “poster pup” for mistreated dogs all around the world.
Timmy, an 8-week-old puppy, was one of the canines that was saved while he was in need.
No dog, particularly a little puppy, deserves or needs anything like this around its neck.
We’ll never understand how someone could treat an animal in such a horrible manner.
This photo just about says it all.
But Timmy had the biggest smile when help arrived.
A total of ten people were apprehended and charged with dogfighting in the case.
However, for many of the dogs, it was already too late. They discovered dead animals all over the place on the estates.
But little Timmy was one of the survivors.
He was taken to the Humane Society of Calvert County in Maryland, where he will be cared for.
Looking much healthier and happier…
It’s good to see Timmy here with an appropriate leash.Timmy would learn to trust humans and go on to a forever home.
So comfy in his new life! The legal procedure would be drawn out, but Timmy and the other dogs would eventually receive what they deserved.
Timmy went on to become the “poster pup” for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to help raise attention to mistreated canines all around the world.
Approximately nine months after the raid, ten of the fourteen defendants entered guilty pleas. We were fortunate in that the more than 350 dogs were saved before the situation became much more dire.
