DEDHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Three pit bulls are calling the Animal Rescue League of Boston their new home after being rescued from an alleged dog fighting operation in South Carolina in September.
Three of the more than 270 pit bulls rescued will be ready for adoption in Dedham in the next few days.
Mike Defina, with the Animal Rescue League of Boston, told WBZ's Suzanne Sausville the dogs were found in bad shape. Several dogs had severe injuries and had been chained up for some time.
"Chained to trees, chained to the ground, there was a lot of scarring, open festering wounds, broken bones," Defina said.
Over the last few months, the dogs have all been treated for their injuries, trained, and are almost ready for their forever homes. Defina said the dogs are healthy and are finally getting the love and care they deserve.
