At the request of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, the ASPCA is assisting with evidence collection and the removal of more than 1,300 animals from a property believed to be associated with dogfighting and cockfighting in Gilman Township, Wisconsin. The animals, including chickens and more than a dozen dogs allegedly bred for animal fighting, are being transported by the ASPCA to undisclosed emergency shelters to receive care and treatment.

Congrats to this cutie, Tie! He’s one of our recent canine graduates from the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center (BRC). This lovable fellow was brought to us from an alleged cruelty case in Texas and has since done wonderfully at the BRC in North Carolina, where he learned some great skills to help him overcome his fears and navigate the world. This cool guy even loves other dog friends and cat friends as well! Now he’s looking for a loving home with the right adopters in the Asheville, North Carolina, area.

When an Alabama Animal Control Officer and Kennel Manager for the City of Mobile Animal Shelter, noticed a cardboard box outside the shelter’s front gate — he peeked inside and found a Chihuahua-mix puppy with deformed legs looked up at him. Upon a full medical exam, it was discovered that the chihuahua (later nicknamed Tiny Tim) had been born with bilateral congenital limb deformities in his front legs, permanently fixing both his elbow and wrist joints. After a contract driver for the ASPCA Relocation Program, heard about Tiny Tim as she was loading dogs for a transport from the Mobile SPCA to an Ohio shelter, she was immediately struck by this small, resilient dog’s backstory.

Last week, we assisted with the removal of 45 dogs from a suspected dogfighting ring in Kansas. There, we saw dogs in kennels with limited food and water, a few dogs on chains with limited shelter—one of which was tethered with not one, but three large chains—and nearly all of them had scars littered across their bodies. While we care for these animals, we know that there are still others out there, depending on us to fight for them. Take a look at photos from inside our most recent case, and know that your support for the ASPCA helps us to help animals like these each and every day. Together, we will keep working to break the chain of cruelty for dogfighting victims. #aspca

A very happy #TongueOutTuesday from Gidget who got adopted this weekend! #adoptdontshop #aspca

BREAKING ‼️ The ASPCA has deployed to the scene of a suspected dogfighting case at the request of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to assist with evidence collection and the rescue of nearly 50 dogs and puppies from deplorable conditions. The suspect has been arrested, and the ASPCA is transporting these innocent animals to our emergency shelter for care. We will continue to work with law enforcement and prosecutors to ensure the best outcome for these animals. 🧡
Your support fuels all our lifesaving work and allows us to respond in cases like this—to help rescue animals from desperate circumstances nationwide, to investigate cruelty and hold abusers accountable. Please donate today at

When Misha, a 4-week-old stray kitten with a fractured hind leg, was transferred to the ASPCA Kitten Nursery from Animal Care Centers of NYC’s Manhattan shelter, her difficult life took a turn toward a brighter future. Weighing just 7oz, Misha was too young for surgery. She also had limited mobility in her right hind leg—vets thought it might need to be amputated. That’s when Claire Bienen, an ASPCA foster caregiver, stepped in. For nearly 6 weeks, Claire provided Misha with a quiet respite in her family’s apartment. Claire was adamant about restricting Misha’s activity, and her leg eventually healed on its own. It didn’t take adorable Misha long to find a home once her foster care ended. Claire returned Misha to the ASPCA in June, and on June 11, the same day Misha was spayed, she was adopted by Olivia Chavez and Kurt Dwiggins of Queens, New York.
