Dogs Deserve Better (DDB), a non-profit dedicated to freeing chained dogs, is set to purchase Michael Vick’s former home and turn it into a dog rehabilitation center. Vick formerly ran a dog-fighting operation named Bad Newz Kennels on the property. Some believe that Vick has been reformed, and others are saying that using his home seems inappropriate. DDB Founder Tamira Thayne contends, however, that it will be cathartic. “We are ecstatic to get on the ground and start the transformation of this property and the entire community which was brought to its knees by the brutality that occurred. It’s a new day,” she said in a press release. DDB currently rehabilitates 400 to 500 dogs per year.
