Stand Against Dog Fighting

 

 
 
At last – a breakthrough in our war against dog fighting! Ten people were recently arrested after being caught red-handed during an organized fight. But it’s only the beginning …

Our investigations into this repulsive bloodsport must continue, which is why I’m calling on you – to help us work towards more arrests and more dog rescues.

If you’d like to join us in our mission to stamp out dog fighting, please deposit your donation directly into our bank account, using 53229 511 as the beneficiary reference:

Eight pit bulls were confiscated at the recent ‘bust’ – two of them badly injured. Sadly, many more dogs will suffer the same fate – which is why, with your support, we must ensure that investigations continue.

Winning at any cost is all that matters to the fight organisers. Mercy has no place in the ring … just as the animals’ fear, injury and pain means nothing to them but weakness – and losing a bet.

It’s sick, because the losers are the dogs themselves. Not only are the weaker ones savaged – the so-called ‘grand champions’ (the stronger dogs that kill their opponents) will also ultimately meet their match …

They must also be spared the cruel end they will inevitably face in the ring. Stand against dog fighting ­– support your SPCA’s ongoing work to stop it.

Yours sincerely

Even though speaking out could lead to their death, pitbull lovers have exposed details of a highly secretive underworld of organised dog fighting, because the cruel, inhumane practice had to be stopped.

 Shortie is an undefeated fighting pit bull terrier – a “Grand Champion” and one of the country’s highest-ranking fighting pit bulls.

Shortie, eight, is a 23kg US import who is undefeated in 12 professional fights. He is one of three grand champions known in the underground South African industry.

The Cape Times spoke to a former pit bull trainer and nutritionist (who did not want to be named), who now rehabilitates the breed.

He said the blood sport was a multi-million rand industry, with owners placing up to R200 000 a fight on their dogs, depending on the dog’s ranking.
