The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has declared April 8, 2014 to be their National Dog Fighting Awareness Day.

In a message on their website, the organization states:

[blockquote]The ASPCA designated April 8 as National Dog Fighting Awareness Day (NDFAD) to increase understanding and awareness about dog fighting and to encourage animal lovers across the country to take action against this brutal form of animal cruelty.[/blockquote]

A video on their site demonstrates the efforts being made to end the practice.
