A couple days ago I heard that the HSUS issued a temporary change in policy regarding dogs taken from fighting situations. It appears that for now (and until they get together with some welfare organizations for an April meeting to further discuss the issue), they recommend that dogs are to be evaluated individually to see if they're adoptable, rather than being put to sleep automatically.
Well, congratulations, HSUS. You have finally achieved common sense. It's a shame you couldn't have had this moment of lucidity two weeks ago, but here's hoping it will last longer than a month.
