Rescued pit bulls get another chance

By Maria Altman, St. Louis Public Radio


St. Louis, MO. – Last summer more than 500 pit bulls were seized in the largest raid on dog fighting in U.S. history.

More than 400 were taken in by the Humane Society of Missouri.

In the past even animal rights groups thought dogs born and bred in the fighting world had no future.

But the Humane Society of Missouri is working hard to give these pit bulls another chance.
