Many countries are still battling organized, large-scale dogfighting operations as well as small backyard dogfighting. HSI is working to stop these practices through better policy and enforcement.

"Man’s best friend" may fight to the death in dogfights, often with tens of thousands of dollars at stake. Dogfighters sometimes kill the losing dogs, and even winners may die from their wounds. Police often discover drugs, guns, and even murder in connection with dogfights.

Together, we can save dogs from this abuse.
