This sums it up....

This photo is from the Biker benefit for the Va. Beach SPCA I photographed a couple of weeks ago. This story has really hit a nerve here in Virginia and it has been the top story since April. We have been very involved with the situation at my shelter and VERY frustrated with the local officials dragging their feet and probably getting paid off to look the other way. FINALLY the federal government has intervened and taken over the investigation. I cannot tell you how bad some of the dogs were from this compound...most of them have been destoyed because they were so badly injured or to aggressive to adopt out. The bait dogs were heart breaking. I really try and keep my blog happy go lucky, but this situation really pisses me off to no end. There has to be a special corner of hell for people who electrocute, strangle and drown dogs....for people who tie female dogs up to "rape stands" so they can be constantly attacked by male dogs...Anyone who thinks he did not know about this and participate is deluding themselves. The only people living in that house were on food stamps, with no jobs. The money to care for (ha ha) and train 70 dogs is coming from some where...PLEASE take a moment out of your day and email the NFL and let them know that you want Michael Vick suspended from the NFL indefinately. Is this the image they want to send out to kids??? Click here to help:

Good for you for posting this, Jill. I just sent the letter and the link to a few friends. It just makes me ill to think of what has been done to those dogs. It's so very sad.
