Petition to Ban Michael Vick from the NFL-Permanently (warning: graphic image. Sign the petition anyway, please.)

Michael Vick is an athlete who was convicted in 2007 of interstate dog fighting. Under his supervision, innumerable innocent dogs suffered horrifically cruel, inhumane, and sadistic treatment. As my friend [livejournal.com profile] la_palomita says: There's a reason why cruelty to animals is a diagnostic red flag for clinicians. Cruelty at this level is rarely isolated to animals. Sociopaths often start out torturing animals before moving on to victimizing human beings.

Additionally, here are ways to help stop dog fighting.

Once you've signed the petition and looked at ways to help, click here for happy stories from the shelter where I volunteer.
