I was lucky enough to watch an episode on DogTown on National Geographic.
The episode was all about saving the Michael Vick's dogs - they were pit bulls who were brought up to fight for each other. Some were raped for breeding and had their teeth removed, some were used as bait. DogTown took in 22 of them and rehabilitated them so one day they could become pets again and loved again.
After watching this episode, I am incredibly grateful that DogTown loves dogs so much and put so much work into getting these dogs rehabilitated. The people who helped these dogs truly loved them and helped them find their worth.
Here is the Michael Vick's story - I am appalled by what this man did to his animals.
