Target: Spokesman for the Baltimore, Maryland Police, Eric Kowalczyk
Goal: Place dogs rescued from massive dog-fighting ring into loving homes
Another violent dog-fighting ring has recently been exposed and stopped in Baltimore, Maryland. Authorities seized 225 dogs, 50 of which were puppies. There is a possibility that many of the dogs used in this gruesome sport will have to be euthanized, due to severe aggression or lack of interest from the public. However, a spokesman for the Maryland police insists that each and every dog will be evaluated to assess re-homing chances. Urge the police team to actively work with and find every dog involved a loving home.
It is very possible that many of the rescued fighting dogs will have difficult aggression issues, especially when placed into a stressful shelter environment. However, aggression does not have to be a death sentence for these dogs. The police officers who rescued these dogs could organize rehabilitation classes for the dogs that need it, and hold a couple of adoption events for those that are ready to be placed in loving homes.
If the Baltimore police department stays involved in the dogs’ lives, every single one of the 225 individual canines can be saved. Adoption events could even raise money that would be put back into efforts that end other dog-fighting rings around the country. Sign this petition to convince the Baltimore police department to actively participate in the future of the recently rescued fighting dogs.
Dear Mr. Kowalczyk,
Please extend my thanks to the Baltimore police department for putting an end to a massive dog-fighting ring and saving the lives of 225 fighting dogs. Recently, you made a public statement claiming that every single dog will be assessed in order to determine re-homing capability. I believe that, with intense dedication from the Baltimore police officers, every single one of the 225 dogs rescued could be placed in loving homes.
The Baltimore police officers could hold a few adoption events for the dogs that do not display aggression. For those that do display aggression, positive rehabilitation would ensure that they are capable of eventually being placed. I urge the department to stay active in the dogs’ futures. Something very good can come of this terrible aspect of human nature.
Proceeds earned from adoption events could be put into ending more dog-fighting operations all over the country. There is always a way, and there is always hope. Please thank the department for all that they do, and pass along this message.
[Your Name Here]
