Dogs Deserve Better is a great anti-chaining/penning group. They rescue chained and penned dogs, train them, and adopt them to new homes. They also fight to pass anti-chaining laws. Now they want to buy Michael Vick's "Bad Newz Kennel" and turn it into the "Good Newz Rehab Center"...taking something evil and turning it into something good. http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/michael_vicks_former_bad_newz_kennels_could_become_haven_for_rescued_dogs/2011/03/17/ABvVeWp_story.html
They have raised over $142,000 so far but need to raise another $30,000 before they can get a loan to buy the property. They're working very hard and they are all volunteers. They're taking donations here: http://www.dogsdeservebetter.org/ddbcenter.html
Some of the neighbours of the property are opposed to a rescue center because they have "hunting dogs" that live chained outside. Ugh. I guess they were okay with a dog fighting ring there, but not a rescue? Also, fork Michael Vick for being out there making millions while groups like this struggle to save dogs.
