The Horror Of Dogfighting

Dog fighting is an abhorrent and barbaric activity. Sadly, this sickening and illegal practice still occurs in every part of the country and in every type of community.

To The Rescue

Katherine Heigl & The Rescued Pit Bull Pup

JDHF founders Katherine and Nancy Heigl personally rescued a two-month-old pit bull from the California City Shelter last week. The puppy had been used as bait in dog fights in California’s Antelope Valley and suffered a number of bad injuries. The pup was taken to the vet where it was discovered he had a broken neck vertebra. After treatment for his wounds the youngster is now recovering in the care of the Heigl family.
