All Americans should unite in condemning dog fighting, as well as the cruel abuse and murder of these innocent animals. Almost from the beginning of time, dogs have been raised and loved in a special relationship with humans.
They have repaid our love and kindness by serving as our companions and helpmates. Dogs assist the invalid. They are eyes for the blind, an assistant to law enforcement, and they frequently locate missing people.
Given a chance to live, and with proper training, dogs can perform wondrous and courageous feats for the benefit of humanity. Dogs are God’s innocent and defenseless creatures, not man’s possessions to be killed or abused as he pleases. Dogs must be protected, from the moment of conception until natural death.
