A Texas charity called the Vick House Project is raising money to purchase Vick’s house in Surry County. The group wants to transform Vick’s house into an animal shelter.
On their website (thevickhouse.org), the group says that they have $12,515 in donations so far. The website states, “It is a chance for animal lovers to contribute to a noble cause. It is a chance to create a happy final chapter to a sordid and tragic tale.”
The current owner of the property, Wilbur Ray Todd Jr., rejected a bid of $747,000 for the property and said that it would cost about $1 million to build a similar house on 15 acres.
The Vick House Project said if they can raise enough money to purchase the house, they will ask a group like the SPCA to help run the proposed animal shelter.
The group added that if they do not raise enough funds to purchase the house, they will give all of the donations to the ASPCA.
