The house where Michael Vick ran an illegal dog fighting ring is going to be turned into a state-of-the-art animal sanctuary and the national headquarters for the group Dogs Deserve Better. They have raised $176,507 for the down payment on the $595,000 house but still need many more donations to fund the renovation. The price on this property has come down considerably since it was once on the market for just under a million dollars a few years ago. Dogs Deserve Better had tried to buy the house in March but hadn't raised enough money by the deadline and asked for a thirty-day extension. The house has five bedrooms and four and a half baths, but the animal rights group plans to build a $2.5M dollar facility on the fifteen acre property.
