Michael Vick still a giant dick

We were lobbied by Mr.Waffles, the president of B.A.C.O.N (Bay Area Cats Organize Now!!!) to include this heartbreaking story about the current lives of 22 dogs saved from the clutches of the butcher Michael Vick.

The New York Times - Given Reprieve, N.F.L. Star’s Dogs Find Kindness

" Scars from puncture wounds on her face, legs and torso reveal that she was a fighter. Her misshapen, dangling teats show that she might have been such a successful, vicious competitor that she was forcibly bred, her new handlers suspect, again and again. But there is one haunting sign that Georgia might have endured the most abuse of any of the 47 surviving pit bulls seized last April from the property of the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick in connection with an illegal dogfighting ring. Georgia has no teeth. All 42 of them were pried from her mouth, most likely to make certain she could not harm male dogs during forced breeding."

Thanks so much!

BEST FRIENDS are the best. The staff here might volunteer for a bit at their sanctuary in Utah later in the year.
