DePaul Hosts Panel Discussion on Dog Fighting November 11, 2015

The Center for Animal Law at DePaul University in Chicago is hosting a panel discussion, "Companion Animals and the Law II- Session 2: The Dangers of Dog Fighting". Dog fighting is still happening in Chicago. The activity promotes horrific cruelty and is used by gangs as a tool to desensitize children to violence. Dog fighting also has other impacts on a city such as the ongoing breeding of dogs for fighting and the use of other animals (sometimes stolen pets) as bait.

This event provides an opportunity to hear from experts and invites community members to be a part of the discussion.

Speakers: Cynthia Bathurst of Safe Humane Chicago, Keri Burchfield of Northern Illinois University, and Mary Raines of The Anti-Cruelty Society.

When: Wednesday, November 11, 2015 from 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM (CST)

Where: DePaul University
25 E. Jackson Boulevard
Lewis Building, Room 341
Chicago, IL  60604

The session is free and open to the public, but the center requests registration so they can plan for attendees (refreshments provided).
