Tell Android to Block Dog Wars

On Friday, April 22, BSL News posted about a downloadable game application called Dog Wars available on Android Market (Android is owned by Google). The game, which was developed by Kage Games LLC, allows players to feed, water, train, and FIGHT virtual dogs.

The developers argue that it is just a game, but this type of media fuels animal abuse and breed specific legislation, which costs innocent dogs their lives.

Dog fighting is a felony across all 50 states.  Dog Wars promotes violence and creates a virtual community for a very real crime.

Like many sites, Android Market's policies don't specifically address animal cruelty, but do state: "Android Market should not be used for unlawful purposes or for promotion of dangerous and illegal activities."

This Monday, April 25, many concerned pet bloggers will be joining together to help spread the word about this application and to put pressure on Android and Google to remove it from Android Market.

You can help by blogging, tweeting, and posting on facebook about this game and by asking your friends and followers to sign the petition at

Tell Android and Google to block Dog Wars and stop condoning animal cruelty!


  1. i'm really disappointed in android. :(

  2. All of the games that feature illegal activities should be banned - and those that feature violence if any kind. But this one makes me really sad. And I am kind of sad that the more we protest it the more we help the stupid game designers market the bad game. But we have to do something. I just hate it! Count me in Monday!
