The @humanesociety offers a #reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in #dogfighting . If you have information about illegal animal fighting in your area, you can call the HSUS’s animal fighting tip line at 877-TIP-HSUS and your information will be kept confidential.
If you have information about a potentially animal fighting operation, here are the steps to take:
Call your local police department or animal control agency. Give them as many details as you can about the suspected animal fighting operation situation. You do not need to give your name to law enforcement to report your information. Tell the law enforcement agency about the HSUS’s reward program.
Note: In order to qualify for the rewards program, this must be an open case. Additionally, law enforcement officers (including ACOs and humane officers) are not eligible for the HSUS’s rewards program.
Get a letter from law enforcement. If the suspected animal fighter is convicted, ask the law enforcement agency involved in the case to write a letter to the HSUS. The letter should state that your tip helped lead to the arrest and prosecution. The letter should be mailed or faxed to:
Animal Fighting Reward Program
The Humane Society of the United States
1255 23rd Street, NW, Suite 450, Washington, DC 20037
Call the HSUS for more information. If you have questions about the reward program, please call us at 202-452-1100.
