Time Magazine is reporting that the estate where Michael Vick ran his dog-fighting ring has been purchased and is being rehabbed as a place where abused animals can be cared for.
Dogs Deserve Better has renamed the property Good Newz Rehabilitation Center.
“I try not to focus on Vick personally at all. What I try to focus on is how we are changing this place from what happened here,” DDB founder Tamira Thayne recently told The Daily Press. “[We’re] taking something that was really negative and turning it into a positive. We really try to focus on doing the best we can do for these dogs.”
Thayne raised the $590,000 purchase price, and is seeking donations to get the property ready to house as many as 100 animals. She currently has nine animals living in the house.
What a great ending to a sad chapter in Vick’s history.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
