Animal advocates are celebrating the passage of a nationwide ban on dogfighting in Mexico.

Anton Aguilar, Humane Society International/Mexico director, said: “This reform is a big step in the right direction. We applaud both chambers of Congress for banning dogfighting nationwide. Dogfighting is terribly cruel, highly unpopular and strongly linked to organized crime. What is most important now is that the Senate passes a reform to the federal criminal code so that dogfighting is effectively penalized.” read more

the DOGHOUSE project

The DOGHOUSE project started many years ago, we realized there was a need to help owned animals who through no fault of their own, were living in less then optimal conditions. Each year Ring Dog Rescue volunteers trek out into lower income areas and identify dogs (and sometimes cats and rabbits) in need. We educate their owners on proper animal husbandry practices, provide medical care, food, free spay and neuter, bedding, doghouses, and because getting dogs off of chains is one of our missions, outdoor 10×10 kennels, and crates to hopefully transition the dog into the home. read more
