Fire fighters responding to a brush fire in Ashland City, Tennessee, last week made a disturbing find: 65 chained-up dogs who are presumed to be part of a dog-fighting ring. Mostly pit bulls and some beagles, the dogs all required medical attention, and they had no access to food or water:

“We believe this is the largest dog fighting rescue in Tennessee history,” said Animal Rescue Corps president Scotlund Haisley in the release. “The conditions Animal Rescue Corps found on this property are the worst I have ever seen at a dog fighting operation in my 22-year career in animal protection.”

All the dogs were reloacted to shelters outside Nashville, and they need to be patched up and healed before they can be made available for adoption.
