Two pitbulls rescued from dogfighting find forever families

LAWRENCE, Kan. (KSNT) - The Lawrence Humane Society said two of the five dogs they are caring for following dog fighting busts in the Southeast United States have found forever families.

Pit bull mixes Darcy and Rosey both have new families, and three other dogs are still available for adoption.

The pit bulls were rescued last year by ASCPA responders and cared for at a temporary shelter, then transported to the Lawrence Humane Society, where they will now be able to find a new home.

Lawrence Humane Society Executive Director Kate Meghji said she has been happy to work with the ASPCA to find a new home for the dogs.

"We know our animal-loving community will help us give them the second chance they deserve," Meghji said.

Details on the three remaining pit bulls available for adoption are:

  • Eileen: three-year-old female brown pit bull mix.
  • Freestyle: one-year-old male tan and white pit bull mix.
  • Newton: one-year-old male brown pit bull mix.

Anyone interested in more information on the dogs and the adoption process for them is encouraged to call the Lawrence Humane Society at 785-843-6835.
