“Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is,

Whether the victim of this cruelty is human or animal,

We cannot expect things to get any better in this world.”


Rachel Carson



The longer that I’m involved in animal rescue

The more I see, of mankind’s atrocious cruelty

It is bad enough we still condone abandonment

But why we still condone torture, is beyond me


Yet another innocent victim of dog fighting

This gentle Boxer pup, was used as ‘Bait’

His face, riddled with wounds and mange

Then, tossed out on a street to die, his fate


A compassionate soul saved him from slow death

Now he had to endure weeks of painful treatment

Another compassionate soul, finally adopted him

Today, he has some love, peace, and contentment


A bill has recently been introduced in Congress

‘The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act’

Which would make it a federal crime to even attend

Dog Fighting Exhibitions, a ‘Sport’ now growing fast


Like most animal cruelty activities, including the Puppy Mills

Dog Fighting continues to grow, because fighters make money

Unless their cash-paying customers, including our children today

Are penalized for participating, this cruelty will continue endlessly


Please help us, to assist these innocent victims, of our own race’s greed

Please contact your Congressmen, and demand the passage of this new bill

It is time for all of us, to stand up, for those who cannot speak for themselves

Man’s Best Friend deserves much better, than being tortured, tossed, and killed


Please Call or Write Your Congressmen Today,

Demanding The Swift Passage of H.R. 2492;

It’s bad enough that we allow their abandonment,

Ending Their Torture for Money, the least we can do.


A bill was introduced in Congress on July 11, 2011, that, if passed, would make it illegal to: Attend, or bring a minor to, an animal fighting venture. Bill H.R. 2492,  the ‘Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act of 2011’ would amend federal law to provide:

A penalty of up to one year in prison for attending an animal fighting venture, and up to three years in prison for causing a minor to attend an animal fighting venture.

It’s time to close all of the many loopholes in our federal animal fighting laws,

Giving law enforcement the tools they need to hold animal abusers accountable.
