  • New: Though bred to compete in the fighting ring, the dogs rescued from the property of professional football player Michael Vick went on to become champions of resiliency. Their astonishing courage proved that there's no such thing as "too damaged" or "beyond hope." And that no dog is inherently vicious, no matter her breed or background.
  • Old: Best Friends was among the first national animal welfare organizations to advocate for the dogs rescued from the property of Michael Vick. In 2008, 22 of the most traumatized dogs came to Best Friends, where the quest to rehabilitate them began. Their amazing resilience — and journey back to health and happiness — proved there's no such thing as "too damaged" or "beyond hope," that no dog is inherently vicious, no matter her breed or background. That every dog should be treated as the individual he or she is.
