Animal Fighting Tip Line Update

The HSUS' animal fighting tip line goes national.

The Humane Society of the United States

The Humane Society of the United States' Georgia and Florida tip line (877-TIP-HSUS) to report information on dogfighting or cockfighting is now a national tip line. 

The tip line will be answered by HSUS staff experienced in investigating animal fighting cases and working directly with law enforcement agencies to collect evidence and build cases against individuals involved with animal fighting. The activity is illegal in all 50 states.

As of June 5, 2009, The HSUS and Norred & Associates jointly decided to end Norred's role in fielding the initial reports.  

Through a generous donation by the Holland M. Ware Charitable Foundation, The HSUS offers rewards of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a person or people involved in illegal animal fighting. In 2008, The HSUS paid 26 rewards for tips that resulted in successful cases against dogfighters and cockfighters.
