Dog Advocacy Group Raising Funds To Buy Michael Vick's Former Real Estate
Now a new group, Dogs Deserve Better has stepped forward looking to purchase the house and 15 acres of land. The home is currently listed for $595,000, dramatically lower than the $1.1 million it was at in 2008. The property has been cleared of the kennels and fences. The main house has two master suites, a media room and a two-car garage. Vick paid $34,000 for the 15 acres of land in 2002 and built the house.
So far Dogs Deserve Better has raised more than $50,000. The organization has pledged that all donations of $1000 or more will receive special recognition on a wall mounted plaque inside the facility. A Facebook campaign seeks to raise $999,999 in 45 days to buy the property and convert it into a dog sanctuary to train rescued dogs to live indoors with people and families.
