Pit bull dogs rescued in raid face uncertain future

It was the most comprehensive dog fighting bust in U.S. history as law enforcement agencies from eight different states joined forces to raid multiple dog fighting operations on July 8, 2009. To date 30 people have been arrested and 400-plus dogs have been rescued.

The focus now needs to be on the uncertain future of the rescued pit bull dogs and the decisions the Humane Society of Missouri, who is sheltering the dogs, will make on their behalf.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is already making some disparaging comments about the future of the dogs, even tough the group has agreed to evalute each of the dogs to determine if they can be rehabilitated.
