Prosecute People Who Attend Animal Fights!

Sponsor: The Animal Rescue Site

Support legislation that would punish animal fight attendees.


Thanks to the tireless work of countless dedicated animal activists, conducting any kind of animal fighting is now a federal offense. This is a great milestone for animal advocacy; however, animal fights still occur and there are people who are still willing to attend them. That's why we need comprehensive legislation that would also punish those who attend animal fighting events.

The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act of 2011 (H.R. 2492) would make illegal the attendance of any animal fighting event. We need this legislation so that both facilitators and attendees of animal fights are punished. There is no point to making animal fighting illegal if we aren't also going to eliminate the demand for it.

Please sign the petition in support of H.R. 2492 today!

Victory! Attending an animal fight became a federal offense in 2014 with the passage of the Farm Bill.
