cockfighting – Wise County Sheriff’s office responded to an alleged cockfighting event and made numerous arrests and seized 58 roosters.  AIR and our rescue partner were contacted to assist.  AIR supplied humane housing, evidence documentation intake, services to evaluate the seized animals, medical testing needed for out of state transport and placement to a placement partner in North Carolina. The typical outcome for cockfighting roosters is euthanazia but when AIR agrees to assist, we will always go to the ends of the earth to make sure we turn over every stone for responsible, positive outcomes for the animals. Length: 6 weeks. Placement: 100%
