In May, authorities in Apopka busted a dog-fighting ring while a fight was in progress. The raid resulted in confiscation of more than 30 dogs, who have since been housed at Orange County Animal Services. The shelter petitioned to gain custody of the dogs, and their request was finally granted. OCAS recently announced that it is now seeking rescue organizations who can help take some of these dogs on. If you are a rescue, and you are interested in working with the shelter to bring one of these dogs into your program, email rescue.coordinator@ocfl.net. If you want to volunteer to foster a dog locally, Orlando Bully Rescue is working to take some of these dogs into its care and posted on Facebook today that people interested in fostering can email the group at orlandobullyrescue@yahoo.com.

According to Orlando Bully Rescue, time is limited for these dogs – all of them must have commitment from a rescue by the end of business on Thursday.

Check out this video of some of the Apopka fight-bust dogs, which shows a few photos from the raid as well as footage of the happy, healthy dogs at the shelter interacting with volunteers.

Worried that dogs from fight busts won't make great pets? These dogs say otherwise (full disclosure: One of these dogs belongs to this writer).
