Rout out Dogfighters in Florida"

cruelty ring broken up"
recent months, we have seen story after story about dogs and roosters
saved from brutal fighting rings in Florida. Animals, tied up
with little room to exercise and none of the small enjoyments
of life that they should have known, were being rescued by the
dozen, taken out of the hell which had become their lives. The
lucky ones were sent to live in sanctuaries or with families who
could lovingly care for them. The others, who were euthanized,
were at least taken out of their misery.
2003, ARFF fought tooth and nail to pass the Animal Fighting Bill,
turning Florida's weak animal fighting law into one of the strongest
in the country. Animal fighting, along with the possession of
animals for the purpose of fighting, is now a felony in Florida.
And while we are excited about the recent arrests that have been
made, we know they are only the tip of the iceberg. That's
why ARFF has teamed up with Crimestoppers
to offer a $1,000 reward in every county in Florida for information
leading to arrests in cases of animal fighting.
