Cuckoo for Von Cocopuff

By on August 12, 2015 with 3 Comments By Wayne Pacelle

Today I want to share a heartwarming follow-up story concerning Gremlin Von Cocopuff, a dogfighting survivor from one of our many animal rescue operations. Four years ago, The HSUS assisted local law enforcement in breaking up a dogfighting ring and rescuing 50 dogs from two properties in North Carolina. Gremlin was one of those dogs, and he has gotten his second chance at a happy life. His story is the story of our multifaceted approach to the scourge of dogfighting. We are not only strengthening laws against animal fighting, training law enforcement, offering rewards, and running tip lines – we’re also working with our Dogfighting Rescue Coalition to find loving homes for the dogs saved from this life of torment. Please watch the video of Gremlin’s rescue and see him loving life in his forever home.

    The animal fighting crime investigation training supplied to local law enforcement by HSUS has been an invaluable tool. So good to see progress being made in the effort to confront animal fighting crimes.
    (I want to know who is responsible for naming Gremlin Von Cocopuff; great name!)
