For the past years, we’ve been supporters of ASPCA “Get Tough” campaign against dog fighting. This year, ASPCA teamed up with pit bull advocate, Patrick Stewart.
Patrick Stewart was inspired by his Pit Bull foster, Ginger, to stand up against dog fighting. With the help of ASPCA, Patrick Stewart fostered Ginger from Los Angeles dog rescue Wags and Walks.
“Fostering #GingerGurl is one of the best things I’ve ever done.”
– quote from Patrick Stewart @sirpatstew Instagram post
“I find that my relationship to the world and to the news every day in the papers and on the television has been changed by Ginger, because she has brought such a quality of patience and tolerance and fun into our lives, that it has, in a very short space of time, shifted my sense of where our world might be going,” – Patrick Stewart (interview statement from PEOPLE)
April 8 is National Dog Fighting Awareness Day!
Dog fighting is a inhumane type of blood sport in which dogs are forced to fight one another for entertainment and/or profit. It is illegal in every state. Sadly to know from ASPCA that thousands of dogs continue to be forced to train, fight, and suffer every year. You can make a difference by helping raise awareness about dog fighting.
