Animal Group Upset About Michael Vick Wanting New Puppy
After Vick went on CNN and told Piers Morgan he hopes to get a new puppy for his kids, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals immediately spoke out against the NFL star who spent 19 months in prison for illegal dogfighting.
"Vick's journey toward rehabilitation and redemption has not reflected any direct concern for the wellbeing of animals, and we've never heard him express a shred of empathy toward the dogs he brutalized and killed" ... the org. tells TMZ.
The ASPCA continues, "Rather than talk about the horrors and brutalities of dog fighting, Vick has instead chosen to focus on the consequences of getting caught."
"Vick's actions have been simply self-serving and not remotely expressing remorse. Because of this, the ASPCA has serious concerns about Vick's ability to be a responsible pet guardian."
In other words, don't expect to see Vick at the next ASPCA adoption event. more on this story
