A nonprofit organization Dogs Deserve Better wants to purchase Vick’s former house and site of a dog fighting organization to use as an animal rehab center. They are currently in contract and have to raise $595,000 to complete the purchase. So far they have raised about $50,000, and they are accepting donations online.
The group is planning for massive renovation of the property which will include a memorial for the dogs killed. Dogs available for adoption will live in the 4,600 square foot house which will also include the organization’s offices.
The house last sold to a developer in 2007 for $450,000, who invested an additional $50,000 in the property. It has sat empty and unsold ever since.
If you would like to contribute to the “Good Newz Rehab Center for Chained and Penned Dogs,” you can do so online at the Dogs Deserve Better website or via their Facebook page.
