Tip of the Week: One of the most common form of animal cruelty is the abandonment of dogs. As pet owners fail to understand and control the behavior of their dogs when they go around chewing shoes and furniture, barking, urinating in the wrong places, etc, they 'give up hope' and abandon them.

Well, it is our responsibility to spend some quality time daily to train your dog! It will take some patience, and a lot of love. But remember, just like us human, learning as we get older, animals learn as they grow too! And what is better than to spend some quality time to bond with man's best friend?

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) offers a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in dogfighting or cockfighting. There are rewards for general animal cruelty as well and for cruelty involving animals other than dogs.

If you have information about illegal animal fighting or animal cruelty, you are eligible for this reward. Here are the steps to take.

1.)Call your local police department or animal control agency. Give them as many details as you can about the suspected animal fighting and or abuse situation.

2.)You do not need to give your name to law enforcement to report illegal animal fighting or animal abuse unless you want to. Tell the law enforcement agency about The HSUS's reward program. Let them know that if there is an arrest you will be back in touch and to remember you. If you want you can give them your name, a nickname or pseudonym to begin with if you are interested in going back to have them help you get the reward at a later date. If you are afraid to give your name, you can tell them you fear for your safety and that it is a nickname or pseudonym. Remember, you don't have to use your real name to report a crime. You don't have to use any name.

3.)Get some information on who you spoke to. If the suspected animal fighter/abuser is convicted, ask the law enforcement agency involved in the case to write a letter to The HSUS. The letter should state that your tip helped lead to the arrest and prosecution of the convicted animal fighter. The letter should be mailed or faxed to:
