In "Dog Wars" (by Kage Games, LLC), an app for Android smartphones, you can feed, water, train and fight dogs. This app makes a game out of dog fighting -- celebrating cruelty against animals and contributing to the attitude that there's nothing wrong with using animals in bloodsports. This type of media fuels animal abuse and breed specific legislation, which costs innocent dogs their lives. The company attacks people who are offended by this app by saying "It is just a video game."
This is the first paragraph of a petition that only needs 587 more signatures to reach the 15,000 needed! Please go to this link: Change to sign the petition and get this disgusting App removed!
Kage games NEVER has to worry about my daddy buying ANYTHING from them....EVER!!! And he just wrote his congressman about this app!!!
HURRAYYY! Thanks Blizzard! We'll show them. And those petitions from this site really work too. Mom signs them all the time and she gets emails a couple of times a week saying that we won!
YAY!! to Blizzard's daddy - we'll do the same! Signed it! Thanks, Finney!! Luv, Tink

Thanks Milo! If you click on their animals section it's all petitions like this stuff, to save aminals, I mean animals. MOL
I'm not sure about this Finney, I've seen some competing news articles, but I THINK the game was just pulled by Android because of the backlash from the public, animal rights groups, and celebrities. Even that icky man Vick spoke out against the game (Probably only because one of the characters in it is clearly suppose to be him and he doesn't want that dodging his future career.) Might have to double check to confirm, but I think it got pulled.
I clicked on the "Change" link and it didn't go anywhere. Maybe it's my computer. What is the full link? I'd like to place my vote against it! Hopefully Simone is correct and this has been pulled. Thanks much! I can't meow much about Michael Vick because it's all bad words!!!!
Sign it Simone! The bottom says it can still be accessed through the Marketplace and Android devices. There's no official press release yet that this app has been taken down and until it is, we have to keep signing.
Greyson it must be your computer but here it is. Hopefully Catster will print the whole link: www.change.org
Yeah - nice trick! It's "been pulled" but it can still be accessed through Android Marketplace!
hmmmmmmm I just checked the android marketplace and I can't find it anymore. I'm just hoping it's gone. I've found a few other articles talking about it. No official press release but still... just passing on what I can find myself!
Just sign the darned thing Moe Moe!!! MOL! Just in case!
Thanks, Finney. I found it and signed it.
We signed it. That is disturbing. Hopefully it will be gone soon.
I signed it, Finney! Such a disgusting app. I hope it really has been pulled!
Thank you furry much Siggy, Nadia and Greyson! Even if it did get partially pulled, we want it GONE! And we want to send these companies an important message. In the words of Twisted Sister...We're not gonna take it - anymore!"
415 needed now. Diamond is going to post it tonight.
Thanks Zach! I'd also like to tell Donald Trump to please leave New Hampshire and take the dead possum that's been on his head for the last 10 years with him! Nobody wants you here bub! Think he's reading my diary? MOL!
399 needed now. Diamond is going to post it tonight.
Go to http://animals.change.org/ at the bottom read Chesterfield Co. Shelter but I warn you it will seriously piss you off. I signed that one to. These people should go to jail!!!

Just signed it. There were over 16,200 signatures when we signed.
Thanks everyone, I think this is definitely still active because I just got a newsletter from the ASPCA and they bring this up and even have a petition of their own going on: ASPCA petition
Heading over to that other one that Zach mentioned. Zach, they ALL piss me off! You guys should hear what someone in NH did yesterday! UGH!!! The rescue league showed up this morning for work and found 2 huge plastic tubs with 15 kittens inside and NO breathing holes! If that weren't bad enough, they all had FIV and some need to be euthanized because they were so bad off. They're now searching for whoever did this. Talk about pissing me off!!!
Well, mine is the people working at the shelter which pisses me off a little bit more than idoit citizens.
Last month, two counties over, a ladies Pitt Bull mix got out of her fence. She called the local shelter several times within the first couple days and they always said they didn't have the dog. Well, she went over to the shelter one day and talked to a guy that worked in the back. She showed him the picture of her dog, and he told her he was sorry they had put the dog down. So, she's demanding some kind of apology. Her Pitt looked more like a Pitt than Diamond does (even though female brindle Pitts look like Diamond they are just more slender than the avg. Pitt for some odd reason)Anyway, every body knows they put Pitts down at shelters but they are supossed to wait for the owner. In this case it's suspected they put the dog down before the owner called.
The site for Dog Wars says they are upgrading the game, and will be back in early May! Also says some not flattering thing about us " HATERS" !!! @#$@$% Them!!! ( Pardon my language, the Catfather's fur is in an uproar over this!!!)Good thing they aren't from around here, or daddy would pickett infromt of their HQ!!!
Don't worry Blizzard, this ISN'T over! We won't stop until it's gone for good!
