Target: Randal Taylor, Chief of Police for Indianapolis, Indiana
Goal: Find and arrest people responsible for throwing innocent kittens in dog fighting rings with hungry dogs.
A small kitten was dyed partially red for the purpose of being used in a dog fighting ring. Though this one kitten managed to escape, there are likely many more out there still suffering due to this disturbing cruelty. Demand that authorities find whoever is doing this in order to make sure other kittens are safe.
The black and white kitten was luckily found by a UPS driver and taken to the Southside Animal Shelter. The kitten’s white fur was dyed red, a clear indicator to employees that he was intended to be used in a dog fighting ring. Shelter officials explained on social media that dog fighters dye kittens various colors and make bets on which kitten will be destroyed first by the dogs. Luckily, most of the dye came off the kitten, and shelter employees were able to provide him with a safe and stable environment. This kitten will have the chance to be adopted by a loving family. However, there are likely many other kittens that are being abused by dog fighters in the city.
Kittens don’t deserve to be thrown into situations where they can’t defend themselves. Sign below and demand the immediate shut down of any and all dog fighting rings in the area and swift legal consequences for those responsible.
Dear Police Chief Taylor,
The Southside Animal Shelter recently took in a black and white kitten that likely escaped from a dog fighting ring. Authorities need to do everything possible to find the people who are responsible for these horrific events in order to better ensure that other animals remain safe.
A UPS driver turned the kitten over to the shelter after finding him in an industrialized area. Shelter officials noticed the kitten’s white fur had been dyed red and explained that kittens were dyed different colors and used in dog fighting circles. Unfortunately, the culprits are said to make bets on things like what kitten will survive the longest among the dogs.
While it is good news that this kitten was rescued and will be put up for adoption, many kittens are still being abused in this disgusting and horrifying manner. Dogs and kittens do not deserve this type of treatment. For these reasons, we demand you do everything possible to shut down these illegal events and find the people responsible for the benefit of all animals.
