Two Michiana women helped save hundreds of dogs during one of the largest dog fighting raids in U.S. history back in August.
We learned Wednesday that animal welfare officials have since rescued an additional 16 pit bulls during their probe into the ring, which spanned several southeastern states.
They were surrendered by two of the 13 men arrested for their alleged roles in the crime.
The dogs were later taken to a temporary shelter in an undisclosed location, where others seized in the raid are being cared for by the ASPCA.
In late August, the FBI discovered nearly 400 pit bulls and pit bull mixes that were living in horrible conditions, many with wounds and scars from fights.
