Today, April 8, is National Dog Fighting Awareness Day (NDFAD) and also the letter ‘G’ for the A to Z Challenge, so we are ready to #GetTough on dog fighting!

In honor of NDFAD, the ASPCA is working to put a stop to dog fighting by asking animal advocates across the US to join the fight and #GetTough on dog fighting.

#GetTough on Dog Fighting

Dog fighting affects all of us because it is happening all over the country and in every type of community. If you don’t witness dog fighting first hand that doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.

It isn’t a game or harmless fun. Dog fighting is a brutal type of animal cruelty. Even if you aren’t a dog lover, dog parent, or dog owner, you can join the fight too. Find out why cat owners (and all pet lovers) should Get Tough and stand up against dog fighting.

The ASPCA is working to eradicate dog fighting by aiding in raids and rescues alongside law enforcement agencies. Additionally, the ASPCA is advocating for stronger laws and sentencing for those who commit this crime.

Luna and I Got Tough last night before I hit the gym. It was a bit rainy and gloomy, so don’t mind the less than perfect cell phone pictures!
