Dogs Deserve Better moves to Smithfield, VA!

No one in Richmond, Virginia is a stranger to the Michael Vick case. His treatment of pitbulls and creation of Bad Newz Kennels near the Richmond metro area, and the subsequent heartbreaking investigation into dogfighting horrified many people in Richmond and throughout the country, especially the rescue community. The state seized Michael Vick’s assets, including his home and the surrounding areas.

Now, Dogs Deserve Better, a rescue organization from Pennsylvania, has bought the property and is in the process of moving in.

Their name of the property says it all: Good Newz Rehab Center for Chained and Penned Dogs.

Can you think of anything better? I can’t. This is a huge step in the right direction, and I hope they will bring their additional positive influence to Virginia’s already strong animal rescue community.  Congratulations, Dogs Deserve Better!
