On Thanksgiving evening this year, there was a brush fire in Ashland City, Tennessee, which is about 20 miles west of Nashville. When the firefighters arrived, they found something in the woods they weren't expecting: about 60 dogs chained up at a suspected dog fighting operation.

The county called in the Animal Rescue Corps – a national organization based in Washington D.C. In this segment, Animal Rescue Corps president Scotlund Haisely discusses last month's rescue in Ashland City.
