12 dogs seized from Michael Vick’s Surry County property have been moved to the Virginia Beach Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals where they were evaluated and will be put up for adoption.
The Virginia Beach SPCA will not be telling potential adopters which dogs were seized from Vick’s property.
“We don’t want to adopt these dogs to anybody because it’s a ‘Vick dog,’” said Sharon Adams, executive director of the shelter.
The group of dogs that are now at the Virginia Beach SPCA include nine beagles, two Rottweilers, and a Cane Corso.
The nine beagles have already been put up for adoption, while the two Rottweilers and the Cane Corso are being held for further observation.
The dogs were evaluated over the weekend, and the staff found only one dog that caused a red flag with its demeanor. Several of the dogs had heart worms, fleas, mammary tumors, and are receiving treatment.
The Humane Society said that none of the 12 dogs had any scars or wounds that would suggest they were used for fighting.
The manager of Surry County Animal Shelter, who had been looking after the seized dogs since April, said, “these gentle dogs deserve a life curled up on someoneâ€™s couch.”
The remaining 48 dogs seized from Vick’s property are awaiting to be placed in animal rescue groups.
