Atlanta Human Society gets Michael Vick Jerseys donated…has he gone to the DOGS already????

In from ATLANTA, the Atlanta Humane Society said they are receiving donations from across the country and you’ll never
guess what people are sending…

<strong>More than a dozen Michael Vick jerseys have been sent to AHS, and they are putting them to good use.</strong>

“When I first saw them, I was kind of shocked. I was like, ‘Why do they have Vick jerseys here,’ said Julie Sentner.

Vick is innocent until proven guilty, but his association when men pleading guilty to federal dog fighting charges makes the number 7 jersey an unexpected find at the Atlanta Humane Society.

“At first we were like, ‘I wonder what we’re going to use this for,” said P.J. Smith with AHS.

And the jerseys kept coming. About a dozen or so jerseys were sent from people wanting to make good from a bad situation. In fact, the Humane Society is getting flooded with e-mails about Vick.

So what are volunteers doing with the jerseys?

“We discovered like any donation we get, any shirt or towel, we put it to good use here at Atlanta Humane Society. We’re always using things to clean kennels, use for bedding and stuff like that,” said Smith.

Did she say cleaning kennels?

“We’re not showing any favoritism to these jerseys, they go into our general rotation of towels,” Smith said.

One dog is using his Vick jersey as a pillow.

This dog at the Atlanta Humane Society is enjoying his bed, which is a Vick jersey donated by an upset fan.

“As long as they’re being used for good, then that’s great. If they’re using them to make dogs more comfortable or to clean up after them, then that’s fine,” said Sentner.

Of course, the Vick jerseys being donated mean a lot more to the people than to the puppies, they’re just loving all the attention.
Thank you, WSBTV

  1. Well, this is good news. It makes more sense than burning them. There’s some real poetic justice here! If I had one, I’d send it to Atlanta, too. I can’t tell you how much I want to see MV in prison for what he’s done. What a despicable, sorry excuse for a human being.
