Be Part of the Solution
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) offers a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in dogfighting or cockfighting.
If you have information about illegal animal fighting, you are eligible for this reward. Here are the steps to take.
- Call your local police department or animal control agency. Give them as many details as you can about the suspected animal fighting situation.
You do not need to give your name to law enforcement to report illegal animal fighting.
Tell the law enforcement agency about The HSUS's reward program.
- Get a letter from law enforcement. If the suspected animal fighter is convicted, ask the law enforcement agency involved in the case to write a letter to The HSUS.
The letter should state that your tip helped lead to the arrest and prosecution of the convicted animal fighter. The letter should be mailed or faxed to:
