Abused Pup And NFL Linebacker Team Up To Deliver A Powerful Message About Dogfighting !!!

Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright and Meadow, a 3–year–old American Staffordshire Terrier, make a great team. And that’s a good thing because they’re using their combined skills to end dogfighting.

K.J., along with former Seattle Seahawks safety Jordan Babineaux and MMA fighter Matt Hume, is speaking out against dogfighting in a new Public Service Announcement forPasado’s Safe Haven, a “non–profit on a mission to end animal cruelty.”

In the PSA, which is yet to be released to the public. Meadow sits on K.J.’s lap with a cast around her front right leg, a visual reminder of the atrocities of her past.

Laura Henderson, the Executive Director of Pasado’s Safe Haven, told Q13 FOX News that:

[Meadow] had been stuffed in box and thrown from a truck. She had life-threatening injuries.

Not only did she bare hundreds of scars. But she had significant bite wounds to both front legs as well as all over her body. She was left with purple marks on her body from Wound–Kote, a substance that is used to treat wounds on livestock.

Another thing you can’t help but notice about Meadow is her tendency to breathe very, very loudly.

While it may be easy to become distracted by Meadow’s good looks (and heavy breathing) in this PSA, we can’t forget why this video was made.

In the video, K.J. states:

[Dogfighting is] not a sport. It’s animal cruelty, plain and simple.

Making a statement about ending dogfighting wasn’t the only reason Pasado’s Safe Haven decided to create this video, though. For them, it was a little more personal. It’s their hope that this PSA will also bring those who did this to Meadow to justice.

In fact, Pasado’s Safe Haven is offering a $2,500 reward to anyone who can help identify the “tall white man with a mustache and camouflage pants” who tossed her from a black pickup truck on June 9th.

Babineaux also had a message to share in the video.

Don’t be silent. Be a hero….If you suspect dogfighting is happening in your neighborhood or you know someone that’s involved in animal abuse, do something about it.
