Impact of Animal Fighting

In addition to the obvious animal cruelty, animal fighting endangers the public’s safety. Animal fighting is often intertwined with other criminal activity, such as drugs, guns, and domestic violence. When young children are brought to fights, they become desensitized to violence and are taught that animal cruelty and violence is acceptable.

Dogs that are bred to fight are not sterilized and have litters. When the pups from these litters are sold or given away, the aggressiveness that has been purposefully bred into the animal can have serious safety consequences for the families, friends, and neighbors of the dog.

Please help MACC stop this cruel and illegal practice!
