Did you hear the great news ? 48 out of 49 of Vicks dogs being placed?

ASPCA-LED TEAM RECOMMENDS 48 OUT OF 49 VICK DOGS CAN BE PLACED
As reported in ASPCA News Alert in late August, the ASPCA was preparing to lead a team of certified applied animal behaviorists in evaluating several dogs taken from Vick’s property during the course of the federal investigation.

The evaluations were conducted between September 4-6, and the team recently provided its recommendation to the United States Department of Agriculture—that 48 of the 49 dogs have potential for some sort of placement. Recommended placement options for the dogs include:

Possible re-homing into appropriate foster homes for further observation and evaluation
Rehabilitation as law enforcement dogs
Placement in sanctuaries, which will need to meet USDA facility standards
Only one of the 49 dogs was deemed unfit for rehabilitation and recommended for euthanasia, which was ordered on Monday, October 1, by Judge Henry E. Hudson. A federal judge will determine the final disposition of the 48 dogs recommended for potential placement.

The ASPCA is grateful to the USDA and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the opportunity to lead the evaluations, as well as to the behaviorists who contributed their expertise. “We have been honored to assist federal investigators in this groundbreaking case,” says ASPCA President & CEO Ed Sayres, “and greatly appreciate the trust placed in us. More than anything, I am extremely proud of the dedication and collaboration demonstrated by the behaviorists who evaluated the dogs—that almost all of these dogs can expect to live long and happy lives is an incredibly uplifting and inspiring outcome to this case.”

That should burn PETA’s a sses! Hypocrites of the worst caliber- they make Vick their poster child when their own insane president is on the record saying all Pits should be destroyed- what a conundrum for her poor crazy a ss now that even ‘killer’ fighting dogs can be saved!

  1. *claps hands* YAY! So much for "mean/vicious dogs." Goes a lot to show that its the owners and not the dogs.

    I especially love that some of the dogs may become police dogs.

  4. Wonderful news. I am also very happy to hear that these dogs are being "allowed" to live long and happy lives. I couldn’t imagine that many beautiful pitts being put down. The judicial system is actually doing something right.

  5. I heard about this the other day and am glad that so many of these poor, mistreated, abused and neglected dogs can be rehabilitated and will hopefully go into loving forever homes.

  6. Can you imagine how different their lives will be from this point on? Thanks for the good news.

  7. That is really good news, and good that the dogs weren’t simply destroyed because of their breed.
    Now, the question is, when will Vicks be euthanized? He’s infinitely more dangerous than any dog.

  8. I am so thankful these dogs finally get a chance. Thanks to many caring people that have invested time and energy in these dogs.

    And law enforcement how appropriate!
