Google-owned Android Marketplace currently has an app for sale called "Dog Wars," which, believe it or not, glamorizes dogfighting and encourages people to participate in a digital version of this blood "sport." 

Who doesn't know by now that dogs used for fighting are kept penned or chained (often with heavy logging chains) and that many are taunted and starved in order to trigger extreme survival instincts and aggression? Dogfighters train dogs by forcing them to tread water in pools; run on a treadmill while a caged rabbit, cat, or chicken or another 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.

 

PLEASE JOIN IN THIS FIGHT, Here's 4 petitions to sign...

Action Request: Petition

Dear Friends, please, let's help them!!!

JUSTICE FOR GOLFO!! - Take Action
"My name was Golfo. An employee of the Delegation of Environment in Almeria (Spain)shot me and killed me while jogging next to my owner even though I was properly identified with a necklace and chip, as a law allows the killing of dogs in the park"

Donosenje Zakono Za Zastitu Zivotinja U BiH - The Petition Site
The adoption of the Law on Animal Protection in Bosnia Herzegovina
" In Bosnia Herzegovina animals are treated in an horrible, inhuman, barbaric way. Help us to defend living beings that are not able to fight for their rights. Together we can make shine a better light and make the earth pleasant for us and our sons. "

Justice for Mima! Make Animal Cruelty a Crime in Bulgaria
March 26, 2010, a dog named Mima found tortured, all her 4 legs mutilated apparently over a conflict between neighbors. 28/8/10, 3 month old puppy found skinned alive in a rescue center as a symbol of protest against the animal rights movement in Bulgaria

Patrick's Law Pennsylvania - The Petition Site
I'm afraid that it has been easy to be touched by Patrick's story, but it seems that it's not so urgent to change laws.Why has this petition so few signatures? No animal deserves to be abused, abandoned or neglected. It's time to pressure.
