Manager of Animal Fighting Investigations, Animal Rescue Team
Chris Schindler is the manager of animal fighting investigations for The HSUS' Animal Rescue Team.
Having investigated hundreds of illegal animal fighting operations, he is the nation’s leading expert on the inner workings of international animal fighting networks.
He works with state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies to build cases against many of the country's major animal fighting targets and dismantle animal fighting operations.
On a day-to-day basis, he compiles intelligence and maintains a comprehensive database on known or suspected dogfighters, which has been instrumental in helping law enforcement and prosecutors make their cases in court. Schindler also consults with and educates local law enforcement agencies on the signs and substance of animal fighting operations.
