Let’s End Dog Fighting Together

Many people are not aware of what dog fighting really is, or are aware of the possible signs of a dog fighting operation.

Dog fighting is extremely inhumane and cruel, and the things these dogs are forced to endure are unimaginable.

Do a quick search on the internet and you will learn how dogs are treated and what they are forced to do to fight or be the “bait” dog.

Dogs are stolen from shelters and domestic homes for dog fighting purposes, or raised just for this purpose.

Dog fighting is no “sport”, contrary to those who treat it as a sporting event.

Here in the Alabama area, dog fighting areas and operations usually present signs of multiple dogs (usually pitbull mixes) living outside in 55 gallon barrel drums chained with logging chain (10 feet long).  Surrounding that area are usually ropes and chains hanging from trees, with springs attached to those ropes and chains.  We see a number of tread mills in the area.  And the dogs that are used to fight have scars and/or fresh wounds on their faces and bodies.

Sadly, dog fighting is prevalent is ALL countries.  Did you know that within the Unites States, almost every county in every state has dog fighting organizations?

Our organization is, and we go ANYWHERE in the United States for FREE when it comes to investigating and stopped dog fighting operations.  There is up to a $5,000.00 Reward for valid information, and we encourage people to reach out to us if they have any reason to suspect, or have information about, dog fighting.  Call 1-877-215-2250.

Dog fighters are not stupid.  They are very aware of what they are doing is illegal and inhumane, so they are very careful to conduct these operations in secret and without bringing too much attention to the dogs they are using for dog fighting.

In addition, please visit my own personal endeavor at  I do ALL rescuing and website maintenance by myself, without any volunteers because where we are located in Alabama it is quite rural and it’s difficult to get interested people to want to help.  Anyone wanting to help my dog rescue here, 90% are Death Row Rescued!  You can call my local Farmers Co-op at 256-357-4743 and order dog food by phone or through pay-pal listed under my e mail account through Yahoo.

My additional contact information is listed on my website.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and share it.
Thank you to for helping me share my story and spread awareness on this important issue.

Please, do what you can, where and when you can.

    Insightful blog without being too graphic. I didn’t know ANY signs for a dog fighting ring; I found that educational. Knowledge is power, so I will do my part and share this. Thanks.

    I have known about dog fighting, but could never bring myself to read about it or look at pictures. But, if someone like Billy can do something about it and live it, then I could stand to learn more. I googled a few things about it after reading this post. It’s awful, but I did it. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you to Billy for doing this heartbreaking work. I find it really scary that some people enjoy watching dogfighting or worse, being the one who runs it, because they have no empathy for the suffering of others. We really need to create harsher penalties for those who run these events and even for those that attend them. I am happy to see that people can collect reward money for providing information since people who know of these abuses but don’t care about the dogs’ suffering may very well be willing to turn someone in to collect the cash. I will definitely check out the websites mentioned.
