Dear Mark — Founder ‘Serbian Animals Voice’,

We did it: Mexico, just this week, passed a nationwide ban on dogfighting!

This is a fantastic win for animals and we’re proud of our team in Mexico City who took this on last summer in a big way, just after establishing our new office there. In fact, it was one of their first major campaigns.

But they didn’t accomplish this alone. Because you and thousands of compassionate people cared enough to take action, Humane Society International/Mexico gathered more than 200,000 signatures on its petition calling for a federal law to stop these bloody competitions, which they delivered to the government.

And you were heard.

This reform mandates that the Mexican Federation, the Federal States, and Mexico City penalize dogfighting within one year.

The ban is a big step in the right direction, but the battle isn’t over.
Humane Society International will continue to push for criminal penalties, which we expect soon. We hope you’ll continue to stand with us.

Please share this good news with family and friends:


On behalf of countless dogs who do not have a voice, I thank you for lending yours.

Sincerely,

Andrew Rowan
President and CEO
Humane Society International
