Committed to the education, prevention and prosecution of the vicious sport of dog fighting

In a country that prides itself on its morality, humanity and caring for other human beings, it’s a sad commentary and an embarrassment that we continue to tolerate (unofficially, and often with the turn of a head and a wink of an eye) one of the most heinous acts of animal cruelty. Organized dog fighting still exists – not only in the rural South, but in our own backyard, as well.
Unfortunately, stamping out dog fighting is difficult. That’s due primarily to a lack of accurate information in the community and a failure of both our legislators and our law enforcement officials to fully understand the far reaching implications of dog fighting as well as the relationships between this wicked depravity and other acts of cruelty and criminal activity.
That’s where we come in... AAVENGE is dedicated to:
Providing information that will help citizens understand the seriousness of the dog fighting problem and recognize the signs of possible dog fighting activity in their neighborhoods.
Impressing upon our elected officials the critical important of enacting meaningful legislation that focuses on (and provides stiff penalties against) those who actively engage in the vicious sport, and not against the dogs who are the victims, not the perpetrators.
Assisting local law enforcement by identifying the criminals who prey on dogs for their own sick pleasure and self-gain.
