When 50 fighting dogs were seized from a Breaux Bridge, La. dog fighting ring on February 19, St. Martin Parish Animal Control diligently worked to find rescue organizations trained and equipped to help rehabilitate the dogs.

One suspect has been arrested and faces 47 counts of animal cruelty and dog fighting. Another suspect is still being pursued.

According to cbslocal.com, Randy Grim, founder of Stray Rescue stated:

“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."

So early Saturday morning, a van with the seven most severe medical issues arrived at the rescue's veterinary hospital and trauma center.

“We are taking in some of their medically severe cases, so we can give these dogs the second chance they deserve,” stated Randy Grim.

From the van used to transport the dogs, out came three scarred males, and an emaciated nursing mother dog with her three puppies. Gently their health issues and injuries were assessed and cared for, and then tails started to wag and welcomed sloppy kisses covered the faces of the staff and volunteers caring for the new canine survivors.

When their first round of medical treatments were completed, and everyone was fed and watered, it was no surprise to anyone as the dogs curled up on their fluffy beds for a long and restful sleep.
