Southside Animal Shelter received the following letter from Ed Sayres the Presdent of the ASPCA. Please read this and feel free to pass this important message along:
Dear ASPCA Members and Supporters:
I wanted to let you know personally that we have just announced that the ASPCA is currently assisting in the federal investigation against Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and three other individuals, who were indicted on July 17 by a federal grand jury in a Virginia dog fighting venture.
At this time, we cannot offer any additional details in order to protect the integrity of this investigation and the ongoing criminal process.
We have also posted new educational materials on animal cruelty at http://www.aspca.org/site/R?i=u2mTVkdc-qMymV2jA43qAA... We’ll be regularly updating this section, so I hope you will bookmark it and visit often. You will find a wealth of information here on animal cruelty, as well as a look at the reprehensible world of dog fighting.
Thank you very much for your support of the ASPCA. It is what enables us to pursue our 141-year-old mission, which is as crucial today as when we were founded in 1866—to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals. Every day, we come one step closer to being a humane community. We could not do it without you.Sincerely,
President and CEO
