Snacks for sacks: Bounty on Vick grows
The National Greyhound Adoption Program has added to the bounty placed on Michael Vick: For each sacking of the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, it will donate ten cases of snacks to a Pennsylvania shelter — and a case to the tackler, as well.
Last week, Main Line Animal Rescue, outside Philadelphia, published an ad in the Washington Post, offering to donate five bags of dog food to local animal shelters in Washington D.C. every time Michael Vick gets sacked during the Eagles game against the Redskins on October 26.
The group is considering running a similar ad in every city to which the Eagles travel for a game.
The National Greyhound Adoption Program has upped the ante.
It is promising, for every tackle of the convicted dogfighter, ten cases of Wellness snacks for Pennsylvania shelters.
The NGAP offer applies to both home and away games.
“If the player that does the tackling has a dog, we will be happy to send the player a case to their home office,” David Wolf, NGAP director.
(Pennsylvania shelters can contact the organization if they would like to take part by emailing email@example.com)
