A spokesperson for the Kansas Humane Society said the organization has received three dogs the ASPCA helped seize from properties believed to be associated with dogfighting. 

According to the organization, the dogs were seized from a property in Bendena, Kansas and another location in the Midwest. 

The dogs were living in poor conditions and have scars and signs of injuried often seen with dogfighting. 

Dogfighting paraphernalia was also found at both properties. 

“We’re happy the ASPCA reached out to us and we were able to take in some of the dogs from these two cases,” said Mark Eby, KHS President/CEO. “We’ve allowed them some time to settle in and get comfortable with their surroundings before making them available for adoption. Staff have been evaluating their behavior and assessing their interactions with people and other dogs. They are very friendly and they have done well with other dogs through playgroups and assessments during their stay with the ASPCA and KHS. They’ve been through a lot and we’re looking forward to finding them loving homes soon.”

The ASPCA along with the KBI worked to remove 45 dogs from the Bendena property in August and arrests have been made in both cases. 

Two of the dogs — Virginia and Emma Frost — are ready to be adopted.
