I can't even bring myself to read that - seeing Leslene's comment is enough. I agree with every word she says. I used to be a pacifist until I began reading about the mutants who share the planet with us. These are the ones who should be in the labs being experimented on. Then we might find a way of erradicating this gene that creates these monsters.

I am so depressed and heartbroken to think that we as humans can resort to such utter cruelty at the expense of animals that cannot even tell us how they feel. Dear God, I don't care if I don't get to Heaven for saying this, but the majority of the human race needs to be executed, slowly and painfully - why should I share the oxygen with such despicable, wicked and evil people. This poor poor dog, I cannot even begin to imagine the pain, fear and terror she felt everytime she was put up against another dog. How utterly barbaric that we can do such things. May she rest in peace, in a place where there will only be love, kindness and compassion, where she is free and far away from the atrocities of the very people God put on earth to protect her.

THIS STORY JUST TORE ME UP

Pit Bull Who Lost Lips to Dogfighting Dies, but Leaves Powerful Legacy

She was one of hundreds of dogs rescued by authorities this past summer in an eight-state raid of dogfighters, the largest of its kind in U.S. history. But there was something striking about Fay the pit bull, who was found chained to a wooden box in Missouri: The 5-year-old dog was left with no lips and required serious medical attention.

Still, "she just loved people and that's just amazing to me after everything that's been done to her," Gale Frey, the woman who took the pit bull under her care, told PEOPLEPets.com as she fought back tears following the dog's death Dec. 28. "I call her my toothy girl. She just loved everyone that would pet her, come near her. We had her at a local fund-raiser here and she just had the time of her life. Her tail never stopped wagging."

Fay came to Frey through the St. Louis area rescue group Mutts-n-Stuff, which she had founded with her husband Dave Melot, after the Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society of Missourisaved the dog. Fay then underwent the surgeries she needed to repair her facial damage – and because of her amazing journey and easy temperament, the disfigured pit bull became the face of a recent HSUS 2010 Animal Survivor's campaign.

Even on the day in July when she was rescued, dirty and chained to a box, Fay was as sweet-natured as ever. "Her teeth were showing and it dawned on them that her lips were gone, they cut her lips off," she says. But "her tail was wagging and eyes were smiling. She was like, 'Oh my gosh, you came to save me. Thank you. It's about time you got here.' "

And save her they did. When Frey first laid eyes on the dog at a secret holding location in July, where the rescued animals were being held as court evidence, she knew that Fay was special.

"She would just melt into your body when you would hold her," Frey recalls. "I knew I wanted to take her home to make a difference because she was a victim of dogfighting. And what the dog men did to her was just so cruel. I felt like we had to speak out. And I felt that she was the 'spokesdog' to do that."

The HSUS thought so, too, and funded $5,000 of Fay's surgeries. The dog's third and last surgery was successful, but afterward, as she was waking up, she suddenly went into cardiac arrest. A necropsy revealed it was caused by internal adhesions. "In her previous life, she probably took some blows to the gut, " Frey says. "The scar tissue started twisting her intestines."

Thankfully, Fay suffered no pain. "I was there, I wasn't more than two feet from her [when she died]," she says. "She was waking up and her new face ... and then she was gone. I guess it was her time."

The Humane Society of Missouri also shared condolences. "We are proud to have been able to rescue her and are grateful for every wet toothy kiss she shared with us since her rescue," they said in a statement on their Web site. "We love her and we will miss her greatly!"

The HSUS took the moment to remember all dogs trapped in fighting lives. "Her circumstance is a reminder to all of us about how cruel and barbaric dog-fighting truly is," President and CEO Wayne Pacelle told PEOPLEPets.com in a statement. "I'll think of Fay whenever I speak with a lawmaker about enacting stronger animal fighting laws or talk with at-risk young people about the horrors of dog-fighting, and I hope others are moved by her story, too."

Though her life was filled with much physical pain, which Frey says the dog never showed ("Her love for wanting to be held and kissed overpowered any pain she had"), Fay's quiet suffering will not be in vain. Frey is moving forward with a project she was planning to launch with Fay, called Phoenix House. It will serve as a halfway home for dogfighting survivors, where the rescued animals can be introduced to the normal comforts and activities of daily life in a house.

"When Fay came here, Fay never saw a television before. And the first time the washing machine went off, it scared the living daylights out of her. She ran and hid inside her crate and wouldn't come of her crate for two days," she recalls. "So the Phoenix House is a way for us to acclimate the dogs to indoor living and to kind of give them a head start on their new life."

For Fay, her second chance only lasted five months, but now cremated, she'll remain in a safe place: Her ashes will be placed in special box made by Frey's vet. "She'll be coming back home again," Frey says.

Urgent: Tell the House to Stop the Cruelty


It’s unconscionable. Last week authorities in Chester County, Pennsylvania uncovered another brutal dogfighting ring. The operators not only trained the dogs to kill each other and subjected them to steroids, torture, and constant abuse but the couple also exposed their five children to the gruesome operation. The operators had planned to turn the dogfighting operation into "a family business.”

This has to stop. Fortunately, the U.S. Senate has just passed a bipartisan bill that will help authorities better crack down on dogfighting S. 1947, the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act. The legislation has been referred to the House Agriculture Committee, and there are only a few days left before the end of the year to get it passed. If the bill doesn’t pass the House quickly, two years of legislative work will be wasted, and we will need to start all over again in January.

Please contact Congressman Frank Lucas, Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, and ask him to stop blocking the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act from being voted on by the House before the session adjourns this month.

The bill would close a loophole in the federal animal fighting law and crack down on people who attend dogfights and cockfights. The legislation would also penalize adults who expose children to this violence and blood-letting as the Chester County couple is suspected of doing. It has been endorsed by more than 300 sheriffs and police departments around the country, including the Oklahoma Sheriffs’ Association.

HSI/Latin America Assists Government in Largest Dogfighting Raid in Costa Rica's History

hsi inset dogfighting rescue

Late last week, our team in Costa Rica was on the scene to rescue nearly 30 dogs from the filthy and inhumane conditions of an alleged breeding operation of fighting dogs. While that might not sound like a huge number, this is the largest raid of its kind in the country, as efforts to take on the dogfighting industry are significantly stepped up.

What we found was heartbreaking: Mostly adult dogs living in isolation at the end of chains in barren makeshift enclosures. Luckily for the six puppies we rescued, a few as young as two weeks old, they'll never experience what their parents have been through.

Learn about the rescue -- and what HSI Latin America is doing to fight the cruelty through hands-on rescue and better policy and enforcement.

Too often, the fate of these animals is death, which may come at the hands of the humans who force them to fight them or from their fatal wounds.

Drugs, guns, and even murder are as much a part of the operations as the dog fights themselves. It’s a cruel and dangerous world, one that these dogs are forced to endure.

HSI is making new inroads and ramping up efforts to fight this terrible abuse. Learn about our work and see what you can do to help.

Every State Should Stand Up For Animals Outlaw Tools Of Animal Abuse Animal fighting is already illegal in all 50 states, with offenders facing fines and jail time, yet dog fights and cock fights continue to take place daily.

One difficulty is proving whether an owner is keeping animals in order to fight them. Investigators look for incriminating "tools," such as knives and equipment that is used to provoke biting. This type of paraphernalia leaves little doubt as to a person's involvement with the crime of animal fighting.

Recently, New York has taken the protection of animals a step further and outlawed the possession of any animal fighting-related items. Comprehensive legislation like this should be mandatory for all 50 states! Please take a moment to thank New York legislators and to support stronger laws against animal fighting.

 

 Take Action

Dog fighting is a sadistic "contest" in which two dogs "specifically bred, conditioned, and trained to fight" are placed in a pit (generally a small arena enclosed by plywood walls) to fight each other, for the spectators' gambling and entertainment.

The dogs who are most commonly bred for fighting are generally known as "pit bulls": Staffordshire terriers, American Staffordshire terriers, American bulldogs, and American pit bull terriers. Dogs who are used for fighting are usually kept penned or chained (often with heavy logging chains), and many are taunted and starved in order to trigger extreme survival instincts and encourage aggression.

Some dogfighters train dogs by forcing them to tread water in pools; run on a treadmill while a caged rabbit, cat, chicken, or other terrified animal is dangled in front of them; or hang on with their jaws while dangling from a chain baited with meat. Many dogs are injected with steroids, and some dogfighters even sharpen their dogs' teeth, cut off their ears (to prevent another dog from latching on), and add roach poison to their food so that their fur might taste bad to other dogs.

Dogs who "win" fights are forced to fight again and again and are used to breed puppies for profit. One dog who was described as a particularly successful fighter generated $100,000 in stud fees in a single year. Female dogs are strapped down on "rape stands" to prevent fighting while males impregnate them. Many of the dogs who do not fight or who lose fights are used as "bait" animals.The "pit" where these bloody events take place usually consists of a dirt or carpeted floor measuring 8 to 16 square feet, surrounded by a wooden enclosure that is about 3 feet high. Dogs are taken to either end of the ring and released at the "face your dogs" command. Sticks are used to pry apart the dogs, who clamp down so fiercely that it is not uncommon for dogs to "fang" themselves (i.e., bite through their own lips). Dogs are encouraged to fight to the death, and the fight can go on for hours—until both dogs are exhausted and at least one is seriously injured or dead.
