If you suspect someone is fighting dogs call 1-877-777-2585 in LOS ANGELES COUNTY. National tip line number is 1-877-TIP-HSUS. If a dog fight is in progress immediately call 911.
If you find dog fighters on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any social media platform, DO NOT ENGAGE with them. Engaging with them lets them know you know what they are doing and could cause them to remove their page. By removing their page they are removing vital evidence. Evidence is what is needed in order to have them investigated and an investigation is what is needed in order to have the arrested. AND… they have to be arrested in order to be convicted.
Take screen shots of their accounts and gather as much information as possible on them. If you can find their whereabouts, report them to their local authorities. You can also report them to the Anti-Dog Fighting Campaign on Facebook HERE. Also report them to 1-877-TIP-HSUS. All tips leading to an arrest or conviction will get up to a $5000 reward, so the more information you can provide, the better.
Remember to stay safe but if you are able to videotape, take photos, or gather other important evidence, that is also helpful. Some of the country’s biggest busts have been made because of private tips.
It is important to remember to be patient and diligent. If you call and something isn’t done immediately, do not give up. Keep calling, keep reporting. Tell others to do the same. You may be the only chance this voiceless victim has.
The HSUS offers a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in dogfighting.
Your name, telephone number and personal information will be kept private.
If your tip leads to an arrest our staff will contact you about the reward process. Your identity will be kept confidential.[contact-form-7 id=”12945″ title=”Dogfighting Tip Hotline”]
