The 501(c)3 nonprofit organization program Knock Out Dog Fighting, is a one-of-a kind, award-winning youth intervention program that has become a national leader in stopping cruelty and abuse to both humans and animals.
The Knock Out Dog Fighting program works with professional boxers, MMA fighters in partnership with schools, Boys & Girls Clubs, juvenile detention centers, gang prevention task forces and law enforcement agencies to stop cruelty and abuse. We have been recognized for our work by the White House, the American Red Cross, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the American Institute For Public Service, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.), and many others. We are also the group that animal lovers around the world turn to for solutions to “knock out dog fighting”.
In addition to rescuing, caring for and re-homing dogs that are victims of cruelty, we work with children and young adults to teach them that it’s not a sign of strength, power or greatness to fight, torture or abuse animals. Who better to do this than the toughest men and women on the planet? We do this by helping young people develop self-discipline, honor, respect for themselves and others — values that are the cornerstone of the martial arts. Most of the kids we work with come from broken homes or abusive situations so we help them make better choices, develop empathy for animals, self-respect and healthy lifestyles. We mentor and provide guidance and the tools and resources they need to overcome their obstacles and to become champions in life.
