      Submitted photo: Four Quincy responders help with dog-fighting rescue

      Four responders with the Quincy Humane Society are back home after helping dogs seized from the second largest dog fighting raid in U.S. history.

      Christopher and Betty Sprague, Jane Holt and Sally Westerhoff spent one week working at an undisclosed shelter for the victims of this dog fighting raid.

      At the request of the U.S. States Attorney and FBI, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals seized hundreds of dogs in a multi-state federal dog fighting raid across the southern U.S.

      The dog-fighting ring was found throughout Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Texas.

      Ten suspects were arrested and indicted on felony dog fighting charges.
