End Dogfighting and Reap the Reward

(NAPSI)-To keep animal fighting--and what can be done to stop it--in the minds of Americans, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has an Animal Fighting Rewards program.

The organization will give up to $5,000 for information leading to an animal-fighting conviction, turning the information into busts of what it calls some of the nation's most significant illegal dogfighting and cockfighting operations.

"Because animal fighting is conducted in the shadows among a tightly-knit network of criminals, it has been difficult to infiltrate," says John Goodwin, the HSUS's manager of animal fighting issues. "With our new rewards program, we've found a perfect tool to counteract this."

People who suspect dogfighting or cockfighting activity should call the animal fighting tip line at (301) 258-1459. They should also call the police and mention the reward program.
