In early April, the Idaho Humane Society took in more than 60 pit bulls that were rescued from an Oneida County dog-fighting operation.
The dogs were in poor physical condition — some had bad lacerations on their faces, and were very underweight — but veterinarians at the shelter were optimistic that they would recover from their physical issues. What was unknown was how many could be rehabilitated after having been trained to fight. Read more of that background on the dogs here
Last week, pit bull experts from the rescue group BAD RAP arrived in Boise to help shelter staff evaluate the dogs. Read about that here.
California-based professional photographer Lori Fusaro was in Boise to document the group’s work with the Oneida County dogs.
