After nearly two years of waiting, 10 pit bulls seized from a dogfighting operation in Ontario, Canada, are finally getting a second chance at life.
Dogfighting busts don’t always spell freedom for the animals left behind. People tend to assume that dogs trained to fight are hopelessly dangerous, and they’re more likely to wind up on the euthanasia list than as a beloved pet.
But Jen Deane, executive director of rescue organization Pit Sisters, located in Jacksonville, Florida, couldn’t let that happen.
“We believe every dog deserves a chance and we wanted to help these dogs,” Deane tells The Dodo.
