Michael Vick's Former Home to be Converted to Dog Sanctuary

An animal rights group is closing a deal to purchase Michael Vick‘s old home and convert it to a dog sanctuary.

We told you about these initial plans from Dogs Deserve Better, and the controversy surrounding it; the views being that it could be cathartic to help save dogs on a spot that was formerly used for abuse, while opponents thought it in poor taste to put more dogs on an area so haunted by pain.

The 4,600 square-foot home and 15-acre property formerly served as the headquarters for the dog fighting Vick ended up being convicted for, but now the group hopes to convert it into a rehab center for rescue dogs with the long term goal of finding them adoptive homes.

The deal is expected to close by the end of May, and the non-profit has already raised over $175,000 to help them transform Vick’s home into the Good Newz Rehab Center.

“We are ecstatic to get on the ground and start the transformation of this property and the entire community which was brought to its knees by the brutality that occurred,” said Tamira Thayne, DDB’s founder. “It’s a new day; we are sending a message that animal abuse is out of line with what our country’s citizens want. Dogs are family members, part of the pack, and we must honor and respect them as such.”

What do you think about this is it a smart move?
