Stray Rescue to Receive Dogs Used for Fighting in Louisiana

Seven of fifty dogs will come to St. Louis for treatment

St. Louis, Missouri (March 7th, 2014) – Stray Rescue is helping with the medical care of 7 dogs used for dog fighting in Louisiana.

The dogs are scheduled to arrive on Saturday at approximately 7am. “We are taking in some of their medically severe cases, so we can give these dogs the second chance they deserve,” says Randy Grim, Stray Rescue’s founder. “They reached out to us asking for our help to avoid family members from breaking into their facility to steal the dogs back. I couldn’t say no,” Grim continued.

St. Martin Parish Animal Control is working quickly to transport groups of dogs to a number of different animal rescue shelters and organizations statewide and nationwide that are experienced in rehabilitating the dogs back to health from any possible severe trauma they may have suffered.

Rescue officials say that St. Martin Parish Animal Control is working with animal rescue organizations to farm out a total of nearly 50 dogs rescued from the alleged dogfighting ring.

The dogs were rescued on February 19th, in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.
