DeKalb County Fighting Ring: How You Can Help


We recently took in and are caring for 18 dogs that were part of a dog fighting ring in DeKalb County. Since the case is under active investigation, limited information is available from Animal Enforcement, part of the DeKalb Police department. We will be evaluating the dogs while they recover in our care and they are not available for adoption. But individual housing of dogs does put a strain on an already full shelter (over 400 dogs currently). Here's how you can help:

  • Foster: Our DeKalb location needs loving foster homes! Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Donate: We need pet supplies, including leashes, collars, harnesses and crates. You can donate directly on our Amazon WishList or make a monetary donation here.
  • Volunteer: We need assistance walking dogs, cleaning kennels and spending time with the dogs in our care. You can sign up to volunteer here.
  • Rescue: We are looking for licensed rescues to help. You can email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you can assist.
