Join the ASPCA and Professional Wrestler AJ Lee to #GetTough on Dog Fighting

Join the ASPCA and Professional Wrestler AJ Lee to #GetTough on Dog Fighting

In honor of National Dog Fighting Awareness Day on April 8, we’re teaming up with professional wrestler and animal lover AJ Lee to ask animal advocates across the country to get tough on dog fighting.

“Growing up, my family and I lived in very poor, very dangerous areas and dog fighting was prevalent,” AJ says. Her family fostered former fighting dogs and eventually adopted a pup named Mugsy, whose sweet nature inspired AJ’s love of the pit bull breed and commitment to rescue dogs.

Alongside passionate animal supporters like AJ, we’re working to eradicate dog fighting by advocating for stronger laws and harsher sentencing for those who fight dogs and by assisting with raids and rescues. But we can’t do it alone.

That’s why we’re calling on you to join our #GetTough campaign. Visit aspca.org/GetTough to get involved in three ways:

  1. Take action by signing our petition asking the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) to continue to crack down on dog fighting.
  2. Download our FREE digital toolkit including, social media shareables, a printable poster and more!
  3. Snap a selfie with our printable poster and share it your social media channels using the hashtag #GetTough.

Please visit aspca.org/GetTough to spread the word today and help us eliminate this form of cruelty for good!
