A desperate attempt to save the lives of more than 40 dogs that were seized earlier this year from a dog fighting ring in Michigan is currently taking place; and sadly, time may be running out.

Last night Ingham County Animal Control Director John Dinon made the heartbreaking announcement that most of those dogs will probably be euthanized.

Specifically, Dinon pointed to the difficulty, despite “trying every avenue,” of finding credible rehab agencies or rescues to take in the brutally victimized former fighting dogs.

Five of the dogs currently in the shelter’s custody will be euthanized by the end of the week if an organization does not step in to help.

The other 32 are still considered evidence in this dog fighting ring investigation, but eventually, they will be turned over to animal control.

Tragically, five of the dogs have also already been put down.

Local groups that believe these poor dogs deserve a second chance at life are continuing to call agencies trying to find one or more that are able to take them in.

Euthanizing them should not be an option.

“We’re all about saving lives but we have to balance that against what’s good for the dogs,” Dinon told WLNS News. “They’re not happy in the kennels at the shelter despite the great care we take of them.”

They are happier than they would be if they are euthanized in a matter of days before the adequate accommodations that they deserve are found.

According to the news outlet, Corey Henry and Synquiss Antes have already been charged in connection with this dog fighting ring investigation and face multiple charges including animal fighting.

Numerous more arrest warrants are still expected to be served to other alleged perpetrators in the case.

The Ingham County Law and Courts Committee endorsed a resolution earlier this month to allow animal control agencies more handling options with dogs seized in a dog fighting ring.

The full Ingham County Board is set to vote on the measure tonight.

IF ANYONE IS PART OF AN AGENCY OR RESCUE THAT CAN HELP OR KNOWS SOMEONE WHO CAN, WAN SUGGESTS IMMEDIATELY CONTACTING JOHN DINON AT INGHAM COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER AT (517) 676-8362.
