Recently you spoke up for dogs forced to fight in the cruel spectacle of dogfighting in Mexico. Thanks to you and other animal advocates, my team and I recently handed in over 200,000 signatures calling for a federal ban on dogfighting!
Without you, the work we do to help these dogs would not be possible. We are truly overwhelmed by this level of support and are so grateful to have you on our side.
With your support on this issue, HSI has formed a strong alliance with 20 other organizations in our anti-dogfighting campaign. We have received support for the ban with backing from two members of the Justice Committee. And just last week, the local Legislative Assembly passed a reform to Mexico City's Animal Protection Bill which will issue guidelines for officials to respond to extreme cruelty cases like dogfighting.
HSI has held meetings with key officials, donated equipment and training to law enforcement to address animal cruelty cases, and established a critical route for dogfighting tips. This wouldn't have been possible without you.
We are looking forward to sharing more updates with you soon, but we wanted to let you know that you've already done something important by using your voice to demand a federal ban on dogfighting in Mexico.
You can do even more to help! Please share our campaign with family and friends:
Thank you for all you do to help animals.
