Dogs Will Dine When Vick is Sacked by Redskins


This awesome article is from "Muttsblog", as posted on September 9th, 2009
Dogs will dine when Vick is sacked
"Main Line Animal Rescue placed an ad in today’s Washington Post, pledging five bags of dog food to Washington D.C. animal shelters for each time Michael Vick is sacked.

The rescue, located outside of Philadelphia, said the ad is aimed at bringing attention back to the needs of dogs.

Each time the Eagles new backup quarterback is tackled during the Oct. 26 away game against the Washington Redskins, five bags of dog food will be donated to a D.C. animal shelter.

It also encourages people to volunteer at a shelter on game day.

Vick served 18 months in prison for funding a dog-fighting operation. The Eagles, in signing Vick to a two-year deal, said he’d served his time and deserved a second chance.

“I think we’re all getting tired of the ‘Does he deserve a second chance?’ kind of thing,” said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of the shelter, which is near Valley Forge. “… Maybe it’s about time that the million pit bulls euthanized every year got their second chance.”

“It’s such a misunderstood breed. … They’re great dogs,” Smith told the Philadelphia Inquirer, adding that the stigma pit bulls carry is ”because of people like Michael Vick.”

The ad’s aim is to bring attention back to the needs of dogs, he said. “I think we just need to raise public awareness and this is a good way to do that.”

The ad may run in other cities where the Eagles play, including San Diego, Chicago and New York, he said.

Smith said that if Vick had “any sense of humor at all,” and really wanted to help dogs, he could stand on the field before the Oct. 26 game and let players tackle him, so even more dogs will get fed.

Given Vicks public statements that he wants to help the dogs he once tortured and killed, “He should thank us” for the opportunity, Smith said."

Kudos to the Fabulous Folks at Main Line Animal Rescue! Let's hope that they get to donate 100's of bags of kibble to the DC Shelter. Goooooooo Redskins! Sack Vick!

This is a great way to get dogs fed, I kind of doubt he would stand there and get tackled tho so more can get fed:( Yes, pit bulls are very misunderstood because of the wrong kind of owners they tend to have. I have always had German shepherds and they fall victim to the same stereotyping sometimes. I always truly believed the saying...THERE ARE NO BAD DOGS, JUST BAD OWNERS! No different than humans, no one is born BAD, no one is born a murderer or drug dealer, upbringing is to blame for it! Have a great day Starla:)

What a great idea! Still think there is something wrong and hardly fixable for a human to torture animals. I'm gonna watch just for this as I'm not a football fan. GO REDSKINS!!!!

i'm with you guys... remember the line in "north dallas 4o" when one of the running backs gets tackled by a clothes-line move? One of the players on the field said "i think he broke his f'n neck" the coach said ""i think he broke his f'n neck" and the announcer said "i think he broke his f'n neck"

rerun of North Dallas Forty??

It is so VERY SAD they are allowing this creep play football...He should still be in prison.
We are big Football fans here and are saddened that the Philadelphia Eagles screwed up...
Sack Vick, Big Time!
