The American Dog Owners Association Opposes Dog Fighting

The American Dog Owners Association opposes dog fighting. The American 
Dog Owners Association, was established in 1970 in Detroit, Michigan to 
combat illegal dog fighting and to promote responsible dog ownership.

They are strongly opposed to all acts of cruelty to animals including 
dog fighting. They are greatly disturbed by the recent news regarding 
the dog fighting ring in Surrey Virginia and the indictment of Michael 
Vick and 3 others.

The cruelty that takes place in order to train a dog to fight is 
despicable and those found guilty of these acts are cowards.

They support the efforts of the authorities to bring this case before 
the Grand Jury. The 18 page indictment is a horror story and if these 
defendents are found guilty of these heinous acts then they must be 
punished and they ask that they serve the maximum sentence.

The American Pit Bull Terrier, is the only breed of dog that was bred to 
be man friendly and, unfortunately because of its size and undeserved 
reputation is undoubtedly the breed that suffers the most abuse by man.

It is unfortunate that the American Pit Bull Terrier has been so 
maligned by the media; these dogs have paid with their lives because of 
the irresponsibility of their owners. This breed of dog is well know as 
a service dog, a war hero, a search and rescue dog, a show dog, and a 
loving family pet.

The American Dog Owners Association, its directors, officers and 
membership strongly oppose any act of cruelty to animals and ask that 
anyone found guilty of such cruelty be held accountable.
